Flash Photography: Speedster Cosplay at WonderCon 2015

I spent the weekend at WonderCon, and while I didn’t make it to the Flash TV cast signing (they capped the line 20 minutes before I made it to the convention center), I did make it to the cast and crew Q&A session on Sunday, which I’ll be posting about soon. I also spotted quite a few Flashes, Kid Flashes and Quicksilvers among the cosplayers. (and a Thundra, who I kept trying to figure out whenever she walked by until I finally just walked up and asked her what her costume was).

The full photo gallery is up on Flickr, but here’s a highlight of some of the speedsters who slowed down long enough to be caught on camera: Continue reading

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.

WonderCon Photos. No Foolin’

Starro the Conqueror!

I hope you’ll forgive the lack of an April Fool’s prank this year, but in a world where Geoff Johns relaunching Vibe has actually happened, I figured I couldn’t top the real world.

I did, however, spend two days at WonderCon in Anaheim this weekend. I should have a full write-up soon, but my complete photo gallery is up! Even if you’ve already seen my phone pictures on Instagram, there are a lot more now that I’ve had time to pull photos from the better camera.

Speaking of WonderCon, there was only minimal Flash news. At DC’s New 52 Panel, Brian Buccellato revealed that Flash and Green Lantern will team up in this year’s Flash Annual, and Iris West may be on the Reverse Flash’s hit list. As far as Kid Flash, at the DC All Access Panel Sterling Gates & Scott Lobdell revealed that we’ll learn a little about Bart’s origin in his Vibe guest spot, and an upcoming Teen Titans story will see Bart pulled back to the future, with the Teen Titans having to figure out how to get him back — assuming he even wants to return.

UPDATE: It took two weeks, but I finally completed my writeup of my trip to this year’s WonderCon Anaheim. Head over to K-Squared Ramblings to read all about…

  • Zombies on trial
  • Disney mashup costumes
  • An exhibit hall divided…with ice cream
  • Downtime hangouts
  • Keeping iconic characters fresh
  • Parking chaos
  • Animaniacs anniversary…or not?

…and a lot more besides!
