30 May Issue #59 – “Because Speed Force”
Due to a freak Speed Force accident, Colin is away, so that’s the perfect excuse to discuss the Speed Force!
In this week’s issue, we talk all about the wellspring of speedsters’ powers, the speedsters themselves, and everything else related to one of the most mysterious forces in DC Comics! But first we discuss the latest in DC News.. Also, this week we introduce a new game!
