Flashy People at New York Comic Con

New York Comic Con starts today, and the guests include The Flash‘s writer & artist team of Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul, former Flash writer Mark Waid, and former Flash artists Freddie Williams II (“Wild Wests” and “Fast Money”) and Salvador Larroca (“Terminal Velocity”).

Francis Manapul has posted his signing schedule, and notes that the program lists his Artist’s Alley table as A-8, but he’ll actually be at A-6.

I’ll be doing sketches at the booth for a donation to this great cause. Hope you guys swing by!

Friday, October 8

Geoff Johns will likely be doing signings at the DC booth, and Mark Waid usually does signings at the BOOM! Studios booth.

Former Flash artists Greg LaRocque and Jose Marzan, Jr. also have tables in Artist’s Alley, as does Flash in Wednesday Comics’ Karl Kerschl.

Panels that will probably be of interest to Flash fans include:

  • Friday 2:15pm: Spotlight on Geoff Johns

  • Friday 6pm: DC Nation
  • Saturday 12:15pm: DC Universe

Classic Covers: Flash v.2 #51

I hope Dixon of Crimson Lightning won’t mind me picking up this theme. (Come to think of it, he’s probably used this cover on that blog.)

Anyway, today’s classic cover is Flash v.2 #51 (June 1991), for reasons which should be obvious to US residents.

The other characters running with the Flash haven’t been seen for a while: the three dressed in white and red are the Kapitalist Kouriers, a trio of Soviet expatriates (originally called Red Trinity) who defected to the United States and went into business as super-speed couriers. To the best of my knowledge, they haven’t been seen since Dead Heat (1995).

The woman in the Flash outfit is Christina, originally a member of Red Trinity’s predecessor team, Blue Trinity. She’s had a long history of working for various villains including Vandal Savage, Savitar, and Kobra (sometimes voluntarily, sometimes not — her history with Savage is particularly twisted), but at this time she’d latched onto Wally West and was calling herself Lady Flash. She has been seen recently, albeit in a different costume, among Vandal Savage’s faction/harem in Salvation Run.
