Kerschl and Fletcher on Flash in Wednesday Comics

Bart Allen as the Flash by Karl KerschlSuperpouvoir (it’s in French) has the full credits for DC’s upcoming weekly series, Wednesday Comics. This is the 12-week experiment to recapture the feel of the old-style Sunday comic section of the newspaper. Each issue will feature 16 comic strips, each strip a broadsheet-sized page. (Basically the size of a comic book unfolded and turned sideways.) To give you an idea of the format, you can look at the sample pages DC has posted at The Source.

The Flash feature will be co-written by Karl Kerschl and Brenden Fletcher, with art by Kerschl. Karl Kerschl is no stranger to the scarlet speedster, having done art for Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #3 (featuring Bart Allen as the Flash — see image at left) and Teen Titans: Year One (featuring Wally West as Kid Flash). Kerschl’s art on both series was well-received. Personally, I thought Kerschl’s work was a perfect fit for Bart Allen, and I’m looking forward to seeing him draw the Flash again.

    What? No speculation on which Flash it will be? 😀

    I was hoping we’d get Flash content in this series. I’m definitely looking forward to it and it seems like a fun idea.

    Judging by everything else DC is doing with the Flash, I see no reason to suspect it would be anyone other than Barry Allen.

    I love Karl Kerschl’s work. I’m definitely picking this up now. He’s one of my favorite artists and he’s very good with the Flash. You missed above that he also did the art to All Flash #1, which had some amazing speedster action between Wally and Inertia.

    Somewhere I’ve read that Didio said these Wednesday Comics are non-canon, they don’t take place in DC Universe’s Continuity, so you can bet it’s going to be Barry Allen.
