An early look at Francis Manapul's FLASH

An early look at Francis Manapul's FLASH

theflash It seems like we had some technical difficulties yesterday, so apologies for that. We know how tough it is to get through a Monday without your usual Source goodness. Moving on, though... Not too long ago, we announced that rising star artist Francis Manapul would be teaming with writer Geoff Johns on a new FLASH ongoing series. But because I was foolishly traipsing around the Florida Keys, we didn't show any art. Well, it's high time we remedy that. As you can see above and below, Francis has a great handle on the Scarlet Speedster — and we’re only in the sketch stage. We’ll post more once we see them, but in the meantime, take a look at these lovely images. We also cornered Francis in to giving us a little background on his work. Take it away, Francis: "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." theflash_2 flash_3
