More Clues About Wally West from WonderCon – DC All Access

The “DC Entertainment” YouTube channel just uploaded an interview at WonderCon with upcoming FLASH writer Robert Venditti.  The questions are the usual fare you’ve heard a alot lately…but take a look at what they put up on screen while they talk about Wally.  This should answer a lot of questions (and possibly confirm some rumors).  The question starts at 0:58 on the video…and the pics begin around 1:13, with a FACE showing up around 1:26.   There is something else about those pics, but we’ll let you comment on that. The video can be seen just after the jump…so, what are YOUR thoughts???

Venditti Discusses Flash At WonderCon

Robert Venditti, the incoming co-writer of the Flash series, appeared at DC’s New 52 panel today at WonderCon. CBR was there to provide coverage of the event, and here are some of the Flash-related highlights. There are possible spoilers revealed here, although nothing major. The creators seem to be keeping most details close to the vest for now.

Follow Speed Force to WonderCon! (2014)

Welcome to WonderCon!

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…

WonderCon 2014 and Long Beach 2013: California Comic Con Plans

Cosplay Crowds.WonderCon has officially announced that they’re returning to Anaheim in 2014 for a third year, from April 18-20. It’s turned out to be a good venue for the convention, especially if they can work the remaining kinks out of parking next year, and it means it’s easy for me to attend, since it’s close enough for me to commute. (That really takes some of the pressure off of trying to get tickets for San Diego, too.)

Still, I hope they find a way to move back to the Bay Area soon. I attended three years at the Moscone Center when it meant traveling (it probably helps that I have family and friends in the area to visit on the way up and back), and while the show still feels very much like part of the same family, it does feel like a slightly different show. I was in San Francisco on a business trip last week, and when I realized I was in the neighborhood, I just had to stop by Yerba Buena park and the Moscone Center for old time’s sake.

Long Beach

Brian Buccellato at LBCC 2012.Coming up sooner, though, is Long Beach Comic and Horror Con, next weekend (November 23-24). This will be the fifth year of the convention, which was started to fill the gap left when Wizard World canceled their Los Angeles convention in 2009, and I’ve been kicking myself over not buying the lifetime membership they offered in year two. It’s a great local convention, and it’s very focused on comics. To give you an idea how focused, the main floor is built around Artist’s Alley as its main feature. I’ll definitely be attending Long Beach this year, and plan on posting photos to my Flickr stream and Speed Force’s Instagram feed.

ComiKaze!

In case you’re wondering, I didn’t attend Stan Lee’s ComiKaze Expo last weekend. I went the first year and enjoyed it well enough, but it’s always within a few weeks of Long Beach, and if I have to choose just one, it’s going to be Long Beach. (Plus I had that business trip to prepare for.)

It doesn’t help that ComiKaze’s promotion is off-putting, the way they puff up their own importance and act as if other local cons like LBCC (and for that matter WonderCon) don’t exist. In good traffic, the Long Beach, Los Angeles and Anaheim convention centers are less than half an hour from each other. People here spend more time than that commuting to work.
