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…

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:
