Deluxe Manapul/Buccellato Flash Hardcover Coming in 2016

Category: Flash News — By

Flash vol.4 #1 - Francis Manpul and Brian BuccellatoAmazon has a listing for The Flash By Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato Deluxe Edition, a hardcover collection coming out in March 2016.

No word yet on a cover or exact contents, but the Flash #1 cover at left is a likely choice. If it’s a single volume, it’s pretty much guaranteed to include the New 52 Flash #1-25, the first annual, plus the Zero and Reverse Flash issues that fit into their ongoing story. That would include “Move Forward,” “Rogues Revolution,” “Gorilla Warfare” and “Reverse.”

I’d like to think they’ll also include the main story from the second annual, the other two Villain’s Month one-shots (Grodd and Rogues) and the three-part “History Lessons” from Flash #27-29, which Buccellato wrote solo with other artists.

Manapul and Buccellato had the unenviable task of following superstar Geoff Johns and establishing the New 52 version of the Flash, and they succeeded in not only making the book their own, but becoming one of the stand-out creative teams of the relaunch.

Batman & The Flash: Hero Run Mobile Game Out For Android and iOS!

Hey Speed Readers,

So a few days back I got a phone call from a friend informing me of a new Flash and Batman-related mobile game. At first I dismissed the news as one of those lame unlicensed mobile apps that lets you fly a reasonable facsimile of your favorite character against generic enemies (especially because of the odd pairing of Batman and The Flash). But nope, sure enough there is a new mobile game available for the Android and iOS featuring Batman, The Flash and a couple of surprise characters.
