5) Wiki of the Week –

Flash’s Costume Ring is a small ring with a spring-loaded opening. Barry Allen, the second Flash, used this ring to compress and conceal his costume while operating in his civilian identity. By thumbing a small stud on the side, the top of the ring opened, releasing the costume (chemically treated to shrink), allowing Barry the ability to change clothes at super-speed.

Wally West, the third Flash, also uses one of these rings. Barry’s grandson, Bart Allen, used a similar ring to hide his costume while he was the Flash, and another to house his Impulse and Kid Flash costumes (he does not remove this ring under any circumstances, at least not willingly).

Notes

  • Bart’s first costume ring, that in which he stored his Impulse costume, was a gift from Wally West, and a replica of Barry’s original.

Trivia

  • Green Arrow used the ring given to him by Barry Allen as a gift when he proposed to his longtime girlfriend Black Canary.
  • The Flash has shown the ability to vibrate and compress his molecules to actually hide himself inside of the ring when the situation calls for it

Shownotes:

1) Update from Troy and Will: Due to the special nature of today’s episode we only shared a quick update with the guys, Join us next week to catch up with the guys completely.

2) Comic Book News: Again with this being a super special episode, we only shared bullet points of the Comic Book News in the show. Here is a complete list of the news:

Comic Book News:
Press Release from Tokyopop: For nearly 15 years, TOKYOPOP, led by Stu Levy, its founder, CEO and Chief Creative Officer, has pioneered the English-language manga movement and touched the hearts, minds and souls of enthusiasts worldwide.
we are sad to inform our loyal community of manga fans, our passionate creators of manga content, our business and retail partners, and other stakeholders who have supported us through the years that as of May 31, 2011, TOKYOPOP is closing its Los Angeles-based North American publishing operations.
TOKYOPOP film and television projects and European operations, including the German publishing program, will not be affected by the Los Angeles office closure. In addition, TOKYOPOP will continue its global rights sales via its office in Hamburg, Germany.

Fear Itself #1 and Fear Itself: Book of Skull #1 have sold out at diamond and will back on the shelves with 2nd printings in May.

The DC Comics Presents: Legion Of Superheroes: Legion Of The Damned 100 Page Spectacular #1 reprinting previously unreprinted Legion comics had been recalled by DC Comics after chapters had been printed in the incorrect order. Retailers were asked to destroy them, to be replaced by new correctly printed copies in a couple of weeks. Some, however, put theirs for sale on eBay below the $7.99 cover price for $6.99. Some even less. Then one managed to get $9.99 for it. Then $30. Right now all those lower priced copies have been mopped up. There are a bunch of Buy It Nows listings at around $30.

Media News:
The Hollywood Reporter says that Michael Clarke Duncan is to voice green lantern corps trainer Kilowog in this summer’s Green Lantern film. Though the movie’s out in just more than two months — June 17 — it’s still  in post-production. On March 30, Geoffrey Rush was announced as the voice of Tomar Re; footage of the character voiced by Rush was shown two days later at WonderCon in San Francisco.

Nestor Carbonell has been confirmed as continuing his role of Mayor of Gotham City in the Dark Knight Rises.  Nestor Carbonell played Richard Alpert on Lost. (Make sure the listen to  to this part of the podcast. I will forever laugh when I hear Nester Carbonell’s’s name.)

Ray Park (Darth Maul from Star Wars: The phantom menace) has announced that he will reprise his role of Snake Eyes for the GI Joe sequel, directed by Jon Chu.

3) Interview with Peter David (www.peterdavid.net)

During the interview we talk about Peter David’s writing schedule, his many awards, his work on Fallen Angel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallen_Angel_(comics)), the Spider-man: Edge of Time Video Game script, a (fictitious?) Cancer scare, and his upcoming work on Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Young Justice. Peter concludes this interview talking about his new publishing company, Crazy 8 Press (http://www.crazy8press.com)! We hope you enjoy this very special episode.
