I’m a huge Flash fan, and the fact that after leaving Adventure Comics Geoff Johns and his insanely talented counterpart, Francis Manapul will be moving onto a Flash ongoing has me doing a little dance in my $9 buttfugly chair right now.
Alex Segura, the man behind DC’s The Source blog gives us a preview of some of Manapul’s sketches of my favorite superhero.
And here is Manapul talking about how he came to be on the title.
“These were done a while back near the end of my Legion run. I tried to make a go at the Flash and these were the sketches I did as a pitch to try and get the book. It was nixed as Geoff and I decided to do Adventure Comics (which I love and will miss very much). However the opportunity to get on the scarlett speedster arose and so here we are. I’ll actually be doing my own inks and watercolor on the new ongoing (much like Adventure Comics) so this is just a tease of sorts. Enjoy.”
