The CW has released details and images from "Grodd Friended Me," the episode of The Flash airing on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Here's how The CW describes the episode:

"Feeling overwhelmed with all the changes since Crisis, Barry (Grant Gustin) conducts an experiment that goes awry and puts him directly in Gorilla Grodd's (voiced by David Sobolov) path. Expecting the worst, Barry is surprised when Grodd asks for his help. Unfortunately for both The Flash and Grodd, things get worse when another villain appears -- Solovar (voiced by Keith David). Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) works with Eva (guest-star Efrat Dor) to escape the Mirrorverse."

Stefan Pleszczynski directed the episode written by Kristen Kim and Joshua V. Gilbert.

Marvel Comics has released details and images from The Union, the series from writer Paul Grist, artist Andrea Di Vito and cover artist R.B. Silva that starts in May.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"Union Jack along with a host of spectacular new heroes have banded together just in time to take on the galactic threat coming in Marvel's 2020 event, Empyre, but that is only the start of this team's epic adventures.

"Joining Union Jack will be the best heroes the UK has to offer, including Snakes from Northern Ireland, Kelpie from Scotland, The Choir from Wales, and their fearless leader, the legendary Britannia!"

"Forty years ago, Roger Stern and John Byrne introduced a new Union Jack into the pages of Captain America. This is the comic I've been waiting 40 years to write," Grist said. "New heroes! New adventures! And a team that's falling apart before it's even begun!"

Silva provided the looks of the cast.

"I really like Medieval themes. With Britania and Kelpie, I wanted them to look like medieval warriors and I just simplified and modernized it from there," Silva said. "For Snakes, I thought of the visual for the Executioner. Someone the enemy will fear from just a look. And for the Choir, more of a light visual, something that can enable quick movements. On her knife I put 3 dragon's heads. I know on Wales' flag they have a dragon with only one head but I thought, why not three?"


NON-STOP SPIDEY: Marvel Comics has announced a June launch for Non-Stop Spider-Man, a new ongoing series from writer Joe Kelly and artist Chris Bachalo.

"Nick Lowe has a superpower. He picks up the phone, calls me and says the exact combination of words that make me want to drop everything and dive head first into the Marvel Universe," Kelly said. "Last time it was Spider-Man, Deadpool, Ed McGuinness. No brainer, YES. This time it was Spider-Man, Non-Stop, Chris Bachalo. Again, YES... but 'Non-Stop?'

"Non-Stop Spider-Man is, for me, the best of what Marvel comics can be: relentless action, epic storytelling, mind-melting art, and relevant themes, all grounded by the heart and soul of one of my all-time favorite characters, Spider-Man. Chris and I want to redline your adrenaline and shatter your hearts, giggling the whole time. Please sign your waivers and gather your safety gear of choice before issue one comes out. I truly can't wait for this. Buckle up, Tigers."

David Finch provides the #1 cover.

STAR WARS ONE-SHOT: Marvel Comics has announced a June launch for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Adaptation, a five-issue adaptation by writer Jody Houser and artist Will Sliney.

In addition to the twists and turns that were present in the film, the series will also have brand-new story material.

"As a lifelong Star Wars fan, it was an honor to be asked to be a part of wrapping up the Skywalker saga with Marvel Comics," Houser said. "We have some fun plans to add scenes and material that weren't seen in the movie."

Phil Noto provides the cover for #1.

RANGER SLAYER: BOOM! Studios has announced a June release for Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1, a one-shot from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Dan Mora, featuring the villain turned hero as she makes a choice that sets the stage for an epic event that reverberates throughout the universe.

Here's how BOOM! describes the book:

"The Ranger Slayer -- AKA Kimberly Hart, the Pink Mighty Morphin Power Ranger from the alternate universe once ruled by Lord Dakkon -- returns home and nothing is like she expected. In a world that only knows her as a villain, can Kimberly show her universe that she's become a hero...and is that even the right thing to do? Confronted by an old foe in a terrifying new form and finding her home in chaos, Kimberly will make a stunning choice that no Power Rangers fan can miss."

"Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1 brings us to the very personal and shocking aftermath of the events of Shattered Grid for one of the all-time fan favorites: Kimberly Hart, Ranger Slayer," said editor Dafna Pleban. "The consequences of Kimberly's choices during Shattered Grid and in this issue are so shocking that nothing will ever be the same again for those who inhabit Lord Drakkon's universe."
