So after the big announcement about the BRIGHTEST DAY: FLASH ongoing that will be written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Francis Manapul, I have to admit, I got really excited to see what these guys have in store for us! We asked artist Francis Manapul what he thinks about the team-up and what fans can expect from the upcoming series, and I could tell he was excited!
The new Flash ongoing series is going to be insane! Geoff has crafted a fantastic story that reintroduces Barry Allen not just to the DCU but to new readers as well. It will be very accessible but plenty of new things for current fans of the book. We're working really hard to try and present his speed in new and interesting ways. But our main focus is on Barry's characterization and really developing his supporting casts, as well as the city he protects. I can't really say more about the story other than it's title for the first arc “The Dastardly Death of the Rogues!” I hope you guys join us for the ride!
Prior to the release of the upcoming BRIGHTEST DAY: FLASH, DC will release Flash: Secret Files #1 in March 2010, which they released images of back in December and you can check out below. Are you guys as excited as Francis about the upcoming FLASH books?
