Just wanted to pop on here and say that I have, and it's actually been a pretty good read -- anybody who might be looking for something to try might want to give that one a shot.

I tried a couple - and while I didn't have issue with the writing and story, I just can't get into Booth's contribution.

I was reading this series up until the current team took over but the issues after Manapul left were so underwhelming that I couldn't bring myself to continue. Honestly, if almost any other artist were on the title right now, I would consider giving it a try but Booth's work is just so damn atrocious that I can't justify spending an extra $3 a month to suffer through it.

Huh -- interesting. Can't say I've had any issues with Booth's art.

You guys feel how I do about what Leinil Yu's doing on Avengers right now -- if I wasn't totally wrapped up in what Hickman's doing, I'd drop that book instantly, because of the art, so I do know how you guys feel.

I did not expect to like Brett Booth's art, to be honest, but it has not had a negative effect on the book I believe. I have enjoyed the run, thus far.

His art style is a better fit for the Flash than it was for the other DC titles he's worked on.
He designs the action scenes well.

Booth is no Manapaul*, but yeah, his art is actually surprisingly decent when he's not drawing a Lobdell story. Flash has been one of DC's better books in general. Still nothing I'm going to remember too well years from now, but it's a been a solid run so far.

*Manapaul, for one thing, isn't a total fucking asshole.

I do miss Manapaul. A fantastic artist and a seeming perfect "fit" for Flash.
