THE FLASH PODCAST LAUNCHES SUPERGIRL RADIO
TUESDAY, FEB 3!
New Fan Podcast Dedicated to the Upcoming Supergirl TV Show on CBS.
Friday, Jan. 23, 2015 – The Flash Podcast, which launched in December 2013 and was the first fan podcast for CW’s The Flash, is expanding its podcast circle with the launch of its first sister podcast Supergirl Radio, on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3rd!
Supergirl Radio is a fan podcast devoted to the upcoming Supergirl TV show on CBS, created by Arrow’s and The Flash’s Greg Berlanti and The New Normal’s Ali Adler, and starring Glee’s Melissa Benoist as the titular superheroine.
Supergirl Radio will be helmed by female duo: Teresa Jusino and Rebecca Johnson, both of whom have made names for themselves analyzing pop culture individually, and will now be joining forces to celebrate the arrival of Supergirl to television.
This fan podcast will begin with a “Season Zero” – as The Flash Podcast did – from February through September 2015, where listeners will get to join the journey and discover more about Kara Zor-El a.k.a. Supergirl, the last daughter of Krypton. Once Supergirl debuts on CBS, Supergirl Radio will become your one-stop shop for all things related to the series. Andy Behbakht, host of The Flash Podcast, is a producer on the show and will work behind the scenes with our hosts.
Supergirl Radio “Season Zero” will provide an in-depth exploration of Supergirl’s history in the DC Comics Universe, dissecting both past interpretations of the character and the current New 52 version throughout the season, with episodes dedicated to iconic storylines and big events that have involved Supergirl. There will also be focus on Supergirl in other media in which she’s appeared, from movies to television and much more!
Supergirl is an upcoming superhero drama by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler (The New Normal, Glee, Chuck) that will be a new interpretation of Superman’s famous cousin as she discovers the heroine within her. Melissa Benoist (Glee, Whiplash) was cast on January 22 as the next person to take this iconic heroine to the skies.
CBS gave the Warner Bros. TV project a series commitment on September 19, 2014 and describes as following: “Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.”

Last week’s The Line it is Drawn post at Comics Should Be Good features Flash team-up art, including this piece by Xum Yukinori. Head over there for a whole mess of team-ups including Rainbow Dash, Cheetara, the Whizzer, the droid BB-8 from the new Star Wars, plus less speedy partners like the Rocketeer, the Spirit, the Savage Dragon and more. Also: Professor Xum.

I didn’t see a whole lot of Flash costumes at Long Beach Comic-Con last weekend — which was kind of surprising, seeing as how the TV show starts Tuesday! — but I did spot the Golden Age Flash couple who made a splash at SDCC, and a New 52-style Captain Cold. (Also: two or three Elsas and at least one Jack Frost. I hope they all ran into each other at some point.)
I also got to visit the S.T.A.R. Labs Mobile Research Unit promoting the TV show, which was fun, both for the exhibits and for the Allen case bulletin board. Check out Monday’s article for photos and a writeup of the exhibit.
Finally, Norm Rapmund was selling these prints by Brett Booth and himself, featuring the major players in the current story arc. He was selling a limited edition (as in 25 copies!) of the uncolored image, and I was tempted. It looked really striking in black and white as well, but it was also twice as much, and I liked the way the present/future Barrys split the image into red and blue.

This year’s trip to Comic-Con International in San Diego went a bit better than last year, when I ended up losing an entire afternoon to an ER visit. That didn’t happen this year. Even better: we managed to catch some fascinating panels, meet some artists and writers, find some cool stuff, see people in awesome costumes, and even learn some useful information.
Sadly, I didn’t make it to the Flash pilot screenings, since they were Wednesday and Saturday, and my tickets were for Thursday and Friday. But I did get to see the extended preview and cast/crew discussion panel for iZombie, which looks like it’ll be a lot of fun in a Pushing Daisies/Veronica Mars/Buffy sort of way.

Comic-Con International starts tonight and runs through Sunday, and as usual, Speed Force will be there to provide you with Flash-centric coverage.
Covering the Con
I’ll be onsite Thursday and Friday, tweeting and sharing photos from the floor, and posting photos nightly to Flickr. I’ll also be participating in SDCCBlog’s photo & video event on Google+ again. Watch for live coverage in the following places:
Plus we’ll be keeping an eye on the news reports out of the con for Flash-related announcements and Q&A items from panels.
Sadly, I won’t be able to make it to the big DC Entertainment event on Saturday. If you’re going to be at the con, plan on catching the premeire, and would like to write up the discussion/announcements, please let me know through the contact form. Thank you!
We’ve also got a list of Tips for Comic-Con to help you make your most of San Diego (and other cons, though some of the tips are SDCC-specific). Finally, here’s the archive of all our 2013 Comic-Con coverage from last year.
