Hello. My name is Kelson Vibber. I've run a Flash reference site, Flash: Those Who Ride the Lightning, since the mid-1990s, and a few months ago I started up a blog featuring Flash news and commentary: Speed Force. I've been invited to do a weekly round-up of Flash news here at Voices From Krypton. This first one's a bit late due to the holiday weekend.
First, Dan didio and Ethan van Sciver discussed next year's Flash: Rebirth at Fan Expo last weekend. CBR has write-ups of the DC Nation and DC: A Guide to Your Universe panels, as well as a brief chat with Dan Didio and an interview with Ethan van Sciver. There are more hints that Bart Allen will return, but the main thing EVS wanted to tlak about was why now was the time to bring Barry back.
The biggest splash, though, was Dan Didio saying at DC Nation that he realizes that DC "reboot[s] the characters too much." he goes on to add, "what we should be doing is leet it sit for a while and then come back with a good strong story with what's going on. That's what Geoff [Johns] does." And Geoff Johns is, of course, the writing half of the Flash: Rebirth team.
Also this past week, Final Crisis: Rogues' Revenge #2 came out. Response to the Geoff Johns/Scott Kolins miniseries continues to be largely favorable, and you can see my review elsewhere on Voices From Krypton.
As for the monthly Flash series, Speed Force interviewed Tom Peyer about the 6-issue run he just finished on the book.
Finally, a fifth volume of The Flash Archives has been spotted on Amazon. This would most likely cover Flash #133-140 (1962-1963), bringing the full-color Archives line up to the same point as the black-and-white newsprint Showcase Presents... series.
