Due to circumstances beyond our control at Speed Force, the Design and Win Your Own Flash Ring contest is ending early, at midnight tonight (Pacific Daylight Time). If you want to get your design in, now’s your chance. Or take a look at some of the great designs submitted so far.
Sorry to spring this on everyone on such short notice, but it was just dropped on us today.
Stopped for coffee on the way to Anaheim Comic Con. Yes, actually, I am wearing a Flash T-shirt. Why do you ask?
Even better, the rest of the convention center was taken up by a coffee convention! (For the uninitiated: There’s a running gag in the current Flash relaunch about how much coffee people drink in Central City…especially Iris Allen.)
Follow-up: read my full convention report and check out my photos.
My other blog Speed Force has teamed up with online jewelers Arroba Silver to sponsor a contest: Design and win your own Flash Ring! The winner will get a free copy of the ring they designed, and the chance for it to be produced as a limited edition. The contest is open now through April 26.
Apparently preliminary buzz is so good on Flash: Rebirth that DC has already announced the next character getting the Rebirth treatment: Vibe from the 1980s “Detroit-era” Justice League.
From the first link, Dan Didio explains:
It was really a melding of events. First of all, with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern all leaving the Justice League, Dwayne McDuffie wanted to try and bring back some of the feel of the Detroit-era League. And what character is most associated with that League? Vibe! Plus we had some very positive fan response to his appearances in Trinity. And orders for Flash: Rebirth have been phenomenal. We want to strike while the iron is hot, so I asked Ethan if he’d be interested, and he just jumped at the opportunity. Literally, he jumped. I could hear the thump on the other end of the phone.
It makes sense in a twisted sort of way.
Update: This is, of course, an April Fool’s joke! Happy April 1, everyone!
