Flash Coming To Arrow

Looks like Barry Allen aka the Flash is coming to CW's Arrow and may get his own series according to this. Personally, Barry had his turn at a series already and would rather see Wally West as the Scarlet Speedster. Unfortunately, CW has hit the pause button on the Wonder Woman series that was titled Amazon.

The Return of Captain Midnight

Dark Horse is releasing Captain Midnight #1 on July 31, 2013, which marks the return of the ace pilot that originally started as a radio serial in 1938. He then started appearing in a comic strip, a comic book serial published by Fawcett, a movie serial and a television series. This is not his first revival for Moonstone Publishing released Air Fighters Comics #1 in 2009 with a new Captain Midnight story. He was then reintroduced by Dark Horse in 2012 in Dark Horse Presents #18–#20, which was collected in Captain Midnight #0. In the new series, he will escape the Bermuda Triangle to the present time.

Batman Begins and The Dark Knight by Dennis O'Neil

I finally read Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008) movie novelizations by Dennis O'Neil. They have been sitting on my to read shelf for the past few years but never to around to reading them for one reason or another (I have about fifty miscellaneous books to read). Now I wished that I would have read them sooner for they were both great enough that I gave them each a solid A. Unfortunately, I do not have the movie novelization for The Dark Knight Rises, which was written by Greg Cox.

The three Batman movie novelizations are available at Amazon:
Since we are on the topic of movie novelizations, the local Walmart's has The Man of Steel movie novelization by Greg Cox. I have not picked it up yet due and I doubt that I will since I am low on funds.

The Superman movie novelization is also available at Amazon:
