Ales Kot Explores the Cost of War in Zero

Now comes some more possible connective tissue with the announcement that episode five of Arrow‘s second season will be entitled “Head of the Demon.” Arabic enthusiasts as well as most Batman fans will immediately recognize the reference. “Head of the Demon is a literal translation…
