Ain’t It Cool News interviews Francis Manapul about the Flash.
What have been some of the challenges having to draw a character who is basically constantly in motion?
FM: I think the challenge comes in thinking of new ways to portray his speed. I’ve been incorporating a lot of his environment to show motion aside from the Flash himself. From Barry catching Chinese food thrown in the air to putting money in the meter as he evades the villains. Geoff has also been upping his game by having Barry do different things with his speed from dissecting a car apart in mid air to learning and building an apartment in less than minute.
He talks about working with Geoff Johns, adapting his art style to the Flash, working for DC Comics, and more in the full interview.
The artist has also posted several pages of art from today’s Flash #3.
