I am really excited for Flash Season 2, for Jay Garrick showing up and now for Jesse Quick. I've been reading comics since the 6th grade and ever since I started I keep digging and digging into the history of the characters, both from the fictional side of things and the people who created them.
That's how I became friends with Len Strazewski when I first enrolled at Columbia College Chicago. Now when I mention Len, I can hopefully assume many of the fine members of this site will remember him from the 90's and the good work he did at many companies including DC Comics. Fun fact, Len helped co-create the character of Jesse Quick (she first appeared in the JSA series from 1991-1993 that helped lead the team into its somewhat destruction during "Zero Hour"). The reason I name-drop Len is because he is a professor at Columbia College and a good friend and all around awesome guy to talk comics with.
Earlier today I was downtown hanging out with Len, catching up and I asked him what he thought about the casting of Violett as Jesse. His response was and I quote "I think she'll do good. She's not blonde but hey neither is Grant Gustin and he does a great job as Barry."
If Len likes her, that's good enough for me. Bring on Season 2!!!!
