I hope Manapul can write but I will definitely check it out for the art alone!

A Filipino? I'm both excited and disappointed.

Kinda amuses me that DC is trying to bury Wally as if he didnt exist and here we have Buccellato wearing a Wally West t-shirt :)

Charlie Sheen lol. Still winning huh? And nice on the Filipino bad guy, especially since Manapul is Filipino-Canadian.

Francis Manapul seems kinda punch drunk/sleep deprived. LIke he's at the level of fatigue where everything is hilarious and awesome.

I was originally planning on picking this up, but now that they said (from what I understood of it) that they were only on Flash for about two years, I'm kind of put off on jumping onto it, any one else thinking the same thing?

@Moxtop: Why would that put you off?  Plenty of runs last alot less than 2 years and can still be great

@noj: At least for me, when I'm buying into a new book, I want it to at least feel like its going to be a steady creative team and go on for a while, just an example off the top of my head is Iron Man, its been Fraction and Larroca for a long time now, and to have them say their only on for two years just twisted me weird for some reason

I think I am going to read this series.

@Moxtop: 2 years is quite awhile imo. Plus they just said that they have the next 2 years planned out, it doesnt mean that they couldnt keep working on it beyond that, but planning too far ahead would be like counting your chickens before they hatch. They very well could last more than two years, but the current story arc thatr they are planning is only going to last that long. Just means they have to come up with more things later

I absolutely love Francis Manapul.  His artwork is what cemented The Flash's latest series as one of my favorites, and Barry Allen as one of my favorite characters.  I cannot wait for this new series.  It's easily the one I'm looking forward to the most in the new 52.

Man wish Michael Turner was still alive RIP man he would have made it look awesome and wish Waid or Johns did the writing. Bring back Wally. Barry's fine but let Wally have his own comic.

So... you F&ck up a marriage you wrote for 2 B characters, and it's OUR fault?

#25 Posted by Johnnyjavavee (86 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm excited for this one. Sounds like a pretty well constructed beginning.

#26 Posted by Joe Venom (1275 posts) - - Show Bio

Hmmm I wonder what will be happening to the DCU in 2 years?!

#27 Posted by Maki_P (275 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't care a rat s about Barry's powers, I want to know what happened with Wally!
