Where have all the Rogues Gone?

WhoDoomedtheFlash

Captain Cold. Heatwave. Trickster. Weather Wizard. Mirror Master. Golden Glider. When you hear “The Rogues” those may or may not be the names that come to mind. They’re the characters that the writers of The Flash have come to rely on and they’re the characters that the show uses heavily as a foil to the Flash himself. But the Flash has had dozens of Rogues beside those six, why limit his antagonists to a paltry sample when he can fight other Rogues just as interesting?

On Flash Appreciation Day, please help comics creators in need

Today marks the ten-year anniversary of the premiere of the Justice League Unlimited episode “Flash and Substance” (February 11, 2006).

Flash Appreciation Day – WE DID IT!

A month ago, Nothing But Comics! submitted a petition to the White House requesting the U.S. President’s declaration of February 11, 2015 as “Flash Appreciation Day”.  Fan response to the petition was tremendous; many media sites reported on the petition, and many fans promoted the petition on Twitter.

The petition needed to get 10,000 signatures for the President to consider it.  Not only did the petition get the 10,000 signatures that were needed, but President Obama promptly gave a moving televised speech about his love for the Flash, and then officially declared today “Flash Appreciation Day.”  It was a great moment for Flash fans… it was a great moment for the world.
