This morning, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES announced that THE FLASH #17 would introduce one of the Scarlet Speedster’s greatest foes into DC COMICS-THE NEW 52: Reverse-Flash!
“This Reverse-Flash is going to be a complete re-imagining of him in the same way that we kind of tinkered with what the Speed Force is,” series co-writer and artist Francis Manapul told COMIC BOOK RESOURCES. “We're going to be explaining what the opposite side of that is. He's the Yin to [Barry's] Yang.”
This month, DC Comics will release its next batch of Annuals. These special oversized issues will not only build off of the events in their respective series, but will also greatly impact the expanding DC Universe. Every day this week on THE SOURCE, we’ll be putting individual spotlights on each of these Annual issues by talking to various writers, artists, and editors to give you special sneak peeks at what’s to come! Next up is THE FLASH ANNUAL #1.
Mother’s Day may not be until this weekend but we here at THE SOURCE thought we’d jumpstart our celebration by asking some of our creators to reflect on how their mothers inspired their careers in the comic book industry. Francis Manapul, artist and co-writer of THE FLASH, shares a personal story below.
