Each week, Matt Wilson, co-host of the War Rocket Ajax podcast and author of the Supervillain Field Manual, examines a major comic news item and picks a few winners and one loser among the week's comic book releases.

I've never really subscribed to the old saying that any publicity is good publicity. Anthony Weiner's political career should be evidence enough of that. But some people...some people sure do know how polish up a PR turd. Nobody seems to be better at it than Mark Millar.

Yesterday, we brought you the news that DC Comics would be publishing tie-ins to the "Zero Year" origin story in "Batman" in 11 of its books come October. Over the next couple days, we'll be bringing you some interviews with the creators of two of those titles to see what they're going to be adding to the "Zero Year" story. Up today is "Green Arrow" writer Jeff Lemire, who will bring a young, fresh-off-the-island Ollie Queen to Gotham to take on Killer Moth in "Green Arrow" 25.

swamp-thing-1982

The 1980s started strong ("Superman II") and ended stronger ("Batman") for DC Comics on film, but the middle of the decade saw more misfires than hits. That included a pair of of not-great "Superman" sequels, "Supergirl" and the campy "Return of Swamp Thing."

One bright spot was 1982s "Swamp Thing" from "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "The Hills Have Eyes" director Wes Craven, who made his first and really only foray into straight-up action with this adaptation of the bog-dwelling DC hero. "Swamp Thing," while a little uneven, receives an excellent disc this week from Shout! Factory, giving us a chance to head back into the swamp and get a little mutated.

the-flash-tv

With the CW fast-tracking a "Flash" TV series from "Arrow" co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, we thought it'd only be right to revisit the Scarlet Speedster's first live-action incarnation on the small-screen: 1990's "The Flash."

That series saw John Wesley Shipp in the role of Barry Allen and was--for its time and the limitations of broadcast TV--not a bad introduction to the character. Let's take a look back at some of the cast members from the show.
