At The Source, DC has posted the first page of the Flash strip from Wednesday Comics by Brenden Fletcher and Kerl Kerschl! The story stars Barry Allen, Iris West and Gorilla Grodd.
As you can see by the layout, each page is basically the size of four standard comic book pages.
Wednesday Comics starts tomorrow and will run weekly for the next 12 weeks.
Superpouvoir (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.
