DC Entertainment has revealed that in order to bridge the gap between season two and three of “Arrow,” and get fans ready for “The Flash,” they’ll be publishing two digital comics in the form of Arrow: Season 2.5 and The Flash: Season Zero. “Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim will pen the further adventures of Oliver Queen series and executive producer Andrew Kresiberg, Brooke Eikmeier and Katherine Walczak will write the adventures of “The Flash.”
“We’ve tried to put in all the elements that people like about the show, so there will be Oliver and Felicity banter,” Guggenheim told TV Guide. “We’re going to see what’s happened to Detective Lance after he collapsed in the season finale. A good chunk of the burning questions left over will get answered in the tie-in comic.”
“Flash: Season Zero takes place between the pilot and episode 2,” Kreisberg says. “Barry will [already] be the Flash, he will have his team, everyone will be in that world, and we’ll introducing a new set of villains that we won’t be seeing on the TV show. It’ll feel like the same heart, humor and spectacle that you get watching Flash.”
The first chapter of The Flash: Season Zero will go on sale digitally Monday, September 8 with the first print collection debuting October 1, while “Arrow: Season 2.5” will debut digitally September 1 and in print October 8.
“The Flash” will premiere on Tuesday, October 7 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time with “Arrow” premiering its third season on Wednesday, October 8 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
