First look at Manapul's Flash art

Written by Niam Suggitt on Tuesday, September 29 2009 and posted in Previews

Some wicked-cool sketches from the artist's upcoming run on Flash with Geoff Johns.

A while back, we reported on the news that Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul were the creative team on the new Barry Allen Flash book, but all the art we had for you was something I found on his deviantart page. But now, the DCU Source Blog has got some new sketches Manapul has done of the Scarlet Speedster. Take it away Franny:

“These were done a while back near the end of my Legion run. I tried to make a go at the Flash and these were the sketches I did as a pitch to try and get the book. It was nixed as Geoff and I decided to do Adventure Comics (which I love and will miss very much). However the opportunity to get on the scarlett speedster arose and so here we are. I’ll actually be doing my own inks and watercolor on the new ongoing (much like Adventure Comics) so this is just a tease of sorts. Enjoy.”

Pretty cool huh? Can't wait to see the coloured stuff.
