The Flash creative team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato gave an interview at last weekend’s New York Comic Con to Newsarama, where they talked a bit about their inspirations for the arc that began with last month’s Flash #1.
Manapul notes a sci-fi tilt to the story that’s about to unfold, and mentions having incorporated aspects from old issues of DC’s Showcase, where the earliest Barry Allen stories appeared. The two also touch on Barry Allen’s role as a man (and comic book fan) facing a brave new world, the DCU Online game, and speed tricks past and present. Manapul also talks about a certain idea not fitting until “year two.” Bring it on!
The first issue of Manapul and Buccellato’s new Flash showed off some gorgeous art and real promise in terms of story and characterization. This interview reveals a little of what’s ahead, as well as some of the creators’ motivation. Are you looking forward to the second issue?
