About

This blog started out as a companion piece to the website, Flash: Those Who Ride the Lightning, and is run by that site’s maintainer, Kelson Vibber. The focus is news and discussion about DC’s super-hero the Flash, sometimes branching out to cover other speedsters and other comics.

Editor & Author: Kelson Vibber

Kelson is a web developer living in Southern California with his wife and son.  He has been reading comics since the age of eight, starting at DC and gradually moving out toward indies.  He first started reading The Flash with the launch of Wally West’s series in 1987, and has since tracked down all of Barry Allen’s run and a significant part of Jay Garrick’s.

Kelson launched Speed Force in June 2008 as a companion to his Flash fan reference site, Flash: Those Who Ride the Lightning.
