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.
Head over to K-Squared Ramblings for my full con writeup and photos!
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.
I’m back from two days (Thursday & Friday) at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Lia has been keeping you all up to date with the news and announcements, and I’ve been putting together my photo album from the event, including a lot of pics that didn’t make it to Instagram. Check out the photo gallery on Flickr, [update] or my writeup at K2R!
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:
- @SpeedForceOrg on Twitter
- Photos at @SpeedForceOrg on Instagram (from my phone)
- Photos at KelsonV on Flickr (nightly, phone & camera)
- SDCCBlog’s 2014 San Diego Comic-Con Photo and Video Experience
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.
I’ve been meaning to post this all week: The Flash faces bleak existential despair in Patrick (H) Willems’ short fan film, En Fläsh, bringing you the scarlet speedster in the style of classic director Ingmar Bergman (The Seventh Seal).
