Comic-Con '06

  • Kelson Vibber has posted a rather detailed overview of what transpired at the "50 Years of the Flash" panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this past Saturday. It includes some comments from writer Danny Bilson regarding The Flash television series and the future of the comic title, wonderful stories from Carmine Infantino regarding the great Silver Age, and commentary from Geoff Johns concerning his involvement in the series.
  • According to Newsarama, at Comic-Con's DC Universe panel Danny Bilson hinted that "a kid named Inertia is behind a lot of the problems" in upcoming issues of The Flash, and Geoff Johns promised that "Inertia will be in Titans East as well." It looks as if Bart Allen will soon be facing off against his evil clone once again.
  • Newsarama also reported on DC's JLA/JSA panel, during which the creators commented on the fate of Wally West and the new Flash's potential place in the League. "Opened by DC Executive Editor Dan Didio, Friday's JLA/JSA panel included Justice League of America writer Brad Meltzer, editor Eddie Berganza, Justice Society writer Geoff Johns, and editor Stephen Wacker discussing the legacies and futures of their respective teams, as well as teases aplenty about just who may be on the final lineups of the DCU's premiere powerhouses... Asked about the possibilities of Wally West and his family returning sometime soon, Didio said that Wally's story is not over yet, but at this moment, and for the foreseeable future, Bart Allen is the Flash. When asked about the presence of the Flash on the JLA, Meltzer replied that it would be good to have a speedster on the team."

Hi there! I just found your blog through the referrer log. Just thought I'd let you know two things:

1. I've added you to my blogroll.
2. I'm adding more stuff to that write-up as I think of it. So it may be longer now than when you last saw it...

Thanks for the update, Kelson, and for the link! I expect I'll be linking to your journal and your site quite a bit in the future. It's wonderful that you were able to attend the "50 Years of the Flash" panel. I'm envious.
