Check out the teaser for the new ongoing series!
Just as we announced earlier, after BLACKEST NIGHT there will be BRIGHTEST DAY, which will be the new DCU event and not a concentrated series. BRIGHTEST DAY will span throughout the DCU and affect a variety of DC titles. Being that writer Geoff Johns was responsible for much of BLACKEST NIGHT, it only seems appropriate that the writer should take on the task of BRIGHTEST DAY. According to THE SOURCE, Johns will be writing the BRIGHTEST DAY title as well as a new ongoing FLASH book with the help of artist Francis Manapul. The FLASH series will be released in April, and will be followed by several additional BRIGHTEST DAY titles. THE SOURCE caught up with DC Comics editor Dan Didio who revealed some interesting information regarding the upcoming book.
THE SOURCE: Keeping my detective hat on, since Geoff is writing BRIGHTEST DAY and we announced he’d be writing a new FLASH ongoing coming right around the same time…
DAN DIDIO: Correct. We’ll be launching the new FLASH ongoing series, by Geoff and Francis Manapul in April with a BRIGHTEST DAY banner, and there will be several more titles utilizing it come May and June.
I for one absolutely love the image of Manapul's FLASH, and I am really looking forward to this new series! What about you guys? Are you excited about the upcoming event? Are you going to pick up the upcoming FLASH book? I really think it is great that the DCU is giving Barry his own ongoing, what do you guys think?
