The CW's Arrow and its spinoff The Flash won't premiere until October, but DC Entertainment is giving fans some comic relief while they wait. The Arrow digital comic series, which has been on hiatus since last year, is set to return with an all-new chapter in the life of Oliver Queen, while The Flash: Season Zero will bring us up to speed on the life of Barry Allen, a.k.a. the Fastest Man Alive.

It's official: Marc Guggenheim deserves a vacation. In the past few years, he's not only been executive producing and writing The CW's Arrow, he's also been penning screenplays (Green Lantern, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and Perry Mason for Robert Downey Jr.), and agreeing to take over the X-Men comic at Marvel.
