A couple of new interviews popped up over the weekend with Flash: Rebirth‘s writer and artist.
First IO9 interviews Geoff Johns. The answer that I found most intriguing from this interview was this:
Is the tone similar to Green Lantern: Rebirth? Because Green Lantern has a tone of, I don’t want to say “space opera,” but it’s been very grandiose and the stakes have never been small.
Green Lantern is to Space as the Flash is to Time.
The backdrop is, big and epic. But it’s a little bit more character-focused, though, the difference being, I gotta get into Barry Allen’s history more because he’s more of an unknown to people.
Let’s look at that again: “Green Lantern is to Space as the Flash is to Time.”
Next is the Blog@Newsarama Q&A with Ethan Van Sciver.
EVS: The reader can draw his own conclusions, but again, I don’t think it’s cynicism on Barry’s part, but a sense that something is very wrong. We’re not seeing the Barry we’re used to here, and there’s a reason for that.
I’m reminded of the fact that Bilson and DeMeo said the same thing about Bart at the beginning of Flash: The Fastest Man Alive. Of course, no one listened to them.
