HeroesCon Hints at Kid Flash

The DC Nation panel at HeroesCon this weekend offered a glimmer of hope to those looking forward to the Kid Flash series originally announced at last year’s Comic-Con International and put on hold last December. ComicBloc’s trmnlvlctyyy spotted in Newsarama’s writeup of the panel that a fan asked about the series, and Franco Aureliani (Tiny Titans) said to “ask him again in August.”

In the following thread, Spire2000 notes that another fan asked about more kids’ books, and was also told to wait until August.

Neither exchange is mentioned in CBR’s coverage.

Could DC be planning a kid-friendly Kid Flash book?

I guess we’ll find out in August…

    Oh, stop teasing us Bart fans and just tell us flat-out, DC!

    Could DC be planning a kid-friendly Kid Flash book?

    …but if it’s part of the Johnny DC line then I might think twice, because I’m personally not all that fond of that imprint.

      I don’t know, it could be pretty good in the JDC branch.

      I mean, Impulse was pretty kid-friendly from the get go, and then the LoSH comic was decent while the JL Adventures/JL Unlimited comic wasn’t bad at all and flowed well along the lines the show had setup.

      Given the options, I think I’d be much happier if they did put Bart into these more “kid-friendly” books than otherwise. Ironically, the kid ones tend to be much more mature about things, yet still remember how to have fun.

      I won’t be getting my hopes up, got burned once on that already, but I’ll be keeping an eye open though.

        I suppose it’s probably more because I’m a bit of a stickler for continuity, but I’d really rather see it in the mainstream so that it would, ah, mean something in the long run.

          Point and one I hadn’t really focused on. I agree, it would be better, or at least nicer, to have it attached to the mainstream. Then again, considering how casually his continuity was stuffed into limbo and then ignored for years… well, apparently being a part of the mainstream doesn’t mean much anyway.

          Personally, if I had to sacrifice canon status for fun and interesting story, I’d gladly do so.
