Dan Abnett: There is a sense that, in this story, even the beginnings that we've seen of it, the potential problems associated with Donna are now very carefully contained - so she's no longer going to spin off the rails - but Roy also is the one who's going to spin off. Are we reversing the dynamic? Is it a matter now of Donna stepping up and going, we need to help Roy now because… And if that's the case - that's two of them that have essentially gone rogue, or three, actually, if you count Wally and the problems that he's been having in the last few issues, is that really proof that the Titans are not a viable thing? That they're basically not safe because at any point one of the wheels could come off and everything could go crashing down?But I'm finding it a very, very interesting story, because it is taking the whole idea of the Titans and subjecting it to intense scrutiny and seeing how far you can push it before it simply disintegrates.

Dan Abnett: "Roy is delving into a world that he - under ideal circumstances - should be avoiding. But he's doing that because he wants to feel like he's doing something useful. He feels that if the Titans are over, he wants to prove that he's got a role to play. There's also this underlying sense that he's trying to prove that to himself as much as anybody else. So not only does he want to good, he wants to do good in an area where he knows how bad things can get. But he's getting close to the fire again. He knows how dangerous that fire is, so he feels like he's the ideal person to do it. Everyone else is going, are you really? Are you really? Because this is like putting you in harm's way, putting too much temptation in front of you."

Devin Grayson wrote a mid-1990s ARSENAL miniseries. In the first issue, there is a flashback to when Roy Harper detoxed from heroin, a retelling of GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW #86. There is some extra dialog.

So, in case you haven't heard, this month was Green Arrow's 75th anniversary. Given that I was conveniently just reading lots of obscure Bronze Age Green Arrow stuff and was noticed more than little negativity towards the character here at the time, I decided to make a case that there is more to the guy besides preachy rantings and being a dick to everyone. I wished to do this for a while, but real life (and admittedly, Star Trek binge-watch) got in the way and what was meant to start three weeks ago, is on getting out now. I haven't seen anybody do anything else here, so here I go anyway.

At least for a little while...

As I ponder the UK's bewildering referendum decision to leave the European Union I may need to retreat into silliness (it helps deaden the disappintment and pain).

Weirdly enough, my first foray into that is going to be via Jason Todd, in a classic romance comic situation.... kinda....

That it is, according to current DC lroe, the birthday of one Richard John Grayson, who is perhaps better known by at least a few other names; Robin, Nightwing, Batman, Agent 37, Hunk Wonder, Acrobatic Ace, Boy Hostage

Since he first appeared in 1940, that means that, for a man of 76, he's looking pretty spry IMHO.

And in this blast from the past well 1970's Detective Comics 402, with art by Gil Kane and Vince Colletta (no less) we see young Mr Grayson, during his now erased college days, ponder anew what it means to be Robin as he considers;

"Now, are the first six issues about Roy trying to convince Jason it is time to go "legit?" To print up some business cards and start using their special set of skills to help people instead of necessarily killing the bad guys unfortunate enough to cross their paths? Does every new story work as a building block to the next? Absolutely. Guilty!

But month-to-month, for the readers that like to be surprised by the adventure and the tone and the focus from issue to issue... Red Hood/Arsenal is our book!

"In a way, Jason and Roy are the best thing that ever happened to one another — even if they can't always admit it to each other.

Before they met, Jason was a violent, angry vigilante with only revenge on his mind. Roy was a directionless action junkie who took ridiculous self-destructive risks. When they finally wound up in each others orbit something pretty spectacular happened to both guys.

"Each new threat opens up a whole new "world" to the series that can be explored.
