(The cover for THE FLASH #1 by Francis Manapul)
Francis Manapaul, the 2011 Joe Shuster Award recipient for Outstanding Comic Book Artist, takes on double duty this fall as he co-writes and illustrates THE FLASH. Francis spoke with us about the upcoming series and spilled the beans about the identity of the book’s first villain(s).
On Tuesday, we made the announcement in USA Today that DC was undertaking a historic renumbering of 52 superhero titles across the line, starting with JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 by our superstar creators Geoff Johns and Jim Lee.
Before they worked together on FLASH, Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul on a series of Superboy stories that appeared in Adventure Comics and Superman Secret Files. In SUPERBOY: THE BOY OF STEEL, all of these adventures are now available for the first time in paperback, with appearances by Superman, Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Wonder Girl and Krypto the Superdog.
Barry Allen is having a tough time balancing his life. Not only is he faced with his job as a CSI, his family, and being a super hero, but he's struggling with a past that still haunts him.
In the conclusion of THE FLASH (on sale tomorrow), written by superstar writer Geoff Johns and drawn by the amazing artists Scott Kolins and Francis Manapul, emotions are running high and Barry needs to make a change...fast.
THE ROAD TO FLASHPOINT storyline ends here and then everything you know will change in a Flash.
