Arrow’s Malcolm Merlyn Gets a Digital First Series
This week John Barrowman, who plays Malcolm Merlyn/the Dark Archer on Arrow
, announced that he will be writing a Malcolm Merlyn digital first comic book series with his sister, Carole Barrowman. This will be a prequel series to explore more about Malcolm's character and how he became the villain we know today on the show.
The book will explore Merlyn's time in the League of Assassins, something that has only been touched upon in the show. The story will also have a present day story focusing on Merlyn's time between season 3 and season 4. This will be interesting because we will see Merlyn adjust into his role as the new Ra's Al Ghul.
This series is a digital first comic book and is planned to be 12 chapters. New chapters will debut every two weeks on digital platforms. The first chapter will be available on January 13th.
