Category: Fandom — By

Flash of Two Shows featuring John Wesley Shipp and Grant Gustin from the 1990 and 2014 TV series.

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.

  • Don’t fear the silly – Robot 6 suggests that comics should embrace some of the inherent silliness. After all, without 75 years’ worth of stories to give them weight, the idea of a man who dresses up as a giant bat and calls himself “Bat Man” is pretty silly.
  • Ask Chris considers the mass media influence on comics canon. You know, elements like Harley Quinn and Rene Montoya, or the Daily Planet, or Kryptonite.
  • It’s weird how often these Peter David articles from more than a decade ago turn out to still be relevant. For example, this one about redefining comics for adults, or changes to movie/TV versions of characters.
