To Comic-Con! (SDCC 2014 Edition)

SDCC Banner

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.

The FlashAfter a weekend at WonderCon, I’m desperately in need of some sleep. But I did manage to get all my photos online, not just the ones taken with the phone. Check out my WonderCon 2014 Flickr album!

Follow Speed Force to WonderCon!

Category: Fandom, Timely — By

Welcome to WonderCon!

This weekend is WonderCon, and Speed Force will be there. This will be my sixth trip to the con, which has become my favorite comic convention in the region. (One of these days I’ll make it to Emerald City.) It’s just big enough to have the multi-genre and big-name appeal of Comic-Con International…without the complete and total mania of the San Diego show.

I’ll post anything Flash-related I encounter at the convention, plus the rest of us here at Speed Force will be keeping an eye out for online news as always.

In addition to this space, watch for…

Barry Allen Wins DC Marvel Superhero March Madness!

Category: Fandom — By

Thanks to a LOT of support from ardent Flash fans, Barry Allen is the Champion of DC Marvel Superhero March Madness at TMStash.com!  The competition started with 64 characters, divided equally between DC and Marvel favorites, and just ended earlier tonight (April 6th).  Barry received almost 2/3 of over 15,000 votes cast in the final round!  Yes, there were multi-voters on both sides of the aisle on this one, but Flash fans were certainly the most enthusiastic in pushing the Scarlet Speedster over the top!  Here’s the link to the official announcement at TMStash:
