Earlier this week, we told you about THE FLASH ANNUAL #1 coming your way this summer. This morning, we’ve got some more exciting news for fans of the Scarlet Speedster. Joining the acclaimed creative team of THE FLASH for a special guest arc on issues #10 and #11 are BATWING artists Marcus To and Ray McCarthy.
“FLASH #10 spotlights the reimagined Weather Wizard and his twisted family tree, and we’re thrilled to welcome artist Marcus To and inker Ray McCarthy on board to tell the tale,” Editor Matt Idelson told THE SOURCE. “Marcus shares studio space with regular FLASH artist Francis Manapul (we’ve enjoyed hearing his snarky comments in the background of our calls with Francis), so we’re keeping things in the family, as it were... and as you can see from the double-page spread below, Marcus is gonna blow through this book like a hurricane! Issue #10 is going to be a blast, but just wait until July’s scorching issue #11, where — fittingly for the height of summer — you’ll be re-introduced to the very nasty, very crispy Heat Wave!
And while you’re impatiently drumming your fingers on your desk, waiting for these two issues (you are annoying everyone seated nearby, and you should really stop), why not check out the terrific work Marcus and Ray have been doing on BATWING recently?”
Following Marcus and Ray’s 2-issue arc, Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato will return as the regular art team of THE FLASH (beginning with issue #12). Below, take an exclusive first look at Marcus’ artwork for THE FLASH #10, which goes on sale June 27th.
