Speed Reading for Thursday

A few more bits:

Mark Waid appears on tonight’s LA Ink. Should’ve posted this earlier!

Final Crisis Annotations: Rogue’s Revenge #3 completes the series.

Fortress of Baileytude examines Flash Secret Files #1, which reminds me of a couple of past blog posts: Comic Coverage’s parody of an endorsement in Smoking Superheroes, and my response that looked into the slow process of removing Jay Garrick’s smoke break from his origin.

Next month, Graphic Audio is releasing an audio book of the prose novel The Flash: Stop Motion by Mark Schultz.

Everyone seems to be talking about Richard Donner’s suggestion to give the Superman movie franchise to Geoff Johns. (via CBR, Newsarama and more)

As if two Flash comics on one day weren’t busy enough, there was a third Flash released on Wednesday: the a new version of the web animation plugin, Flash 10.

Incidentally, the last 24 hours have been the busiest yet on this blog. Note to self: write more reviews!

    Kelson – Keep up the great work on the blog! I’m glad to hear it’s getting some heavy traffic! You deserve it.

    So question for you and others, did anyone else read “Stop Motion” the novel? I got just over half way through the book and lost interest. It wasn’t a bad book, it just didn’t grab me. I’m not sure if the lack of visuals had an impact or whether it was the story. Either way, I was curious to hear what others thought.

    I read Stop Motion a few years ago (mostly during a San Diego Comic-Con, actually). I kept meaning to write up a post about the villain, but never got around to it, and now I think I’d have to re-read it.

    I wasn’t terribly impressed overall, though the opening scene with the Flash flying got things off on the wrong foot. Then there was the fact that the whole plot depended on Wally and Iris being blood relatives, when it’s been well-established that Iris was adopted. One of those things that shouldn’t have bothered me, but did.
