Deluxe Manapul/Buccellato Flash Hardcover Coming in 2016

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.

    I bashed this book hard when I was reading it. But I didn’t know that they were under a tight deadlines and weren’t able to polish the stories sufficiently. I also did not know. of the disaster that was to follow with the current writing team. Compared to Vedetti and Jensen. Buccellatto and Manupul are Shakespeare. I will be getting this book for sure if it is decent sized coffee table. I really like the art work. I know that Geoff Johns is lauded for his run on the Flash. But from what I read of it, Wally was practically a guest star in his own book. Most of the focus was on the Rogues.
