Behind The Panels Issue 119 - Green Arrow: The Longbow HuntersWelcome to Behind the Panels Issue 119, the comic book show that wonders what kind of scene it’s getting into.

In this issue, the Avengers go travelling through time to defeat a future where Ultron wins in Ultron: Forever. Wait, haven’t we heard this one before? THEN the Avengers go travelling through time to defeat a future where Ultron wins…hang about. ALSO Oscar Isaac is cast in X-Men: Age of Apocalypse. It’ll give us an excuse to talk about the new Star Wars trailer on a comic book show. THEN it’s Ody-C from Matt Fraction, Gotham By Midnight, Scarlet Spiders, Angry Birds/Transformers and The Flash in What We’ve Been Reading and Watching.

PLUS our Kick-Ass Pick of the Week: Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters by Mike Grell (DC Comics). This is Behind the Panels.

Your Hosts: Richard Gray, David McVay, and Dave Longo.
