Man, I am super excited about the upcoming Johns/Manapul relaunch of The Flash¸starting this April. And it looks like DC is too – they’re sending out tons of awesome preview art that really make this book look like a Flash we’ve never seen before. One thing we’ve been complaining about in books like Flash: Rebirth is that we don’t get that sense of speed that we should from a character like ol’ Barry Allen. Well, as the sketches below illustrate, Manapul’s looking very hard into correcting that.
Flash Fact: Some of the preview art above actually comes from The Flash: Secret Files and Origins, which is due out 3/24, and will feature Flash art by Manapul and Scott Kolins!
Also coming is a chance, from DC, to win a signed copy of the first issue, if you’re a Twitter follower!
Starting 4/7 and continuing during the week leading up to the release of THE FLASH #1, DC NATION’s Twitter account will be asking one Flash-related question a day. The first five Flash fans who correctly answer the question will be eligible to win a signed copy of one of DC’s biggest new launches of 2010. Think you’re an expert in all things Flash? Well, get ready to have your Scarlet Speedster knowledge tested, pal. Not only will I be bringing my years of Flash fandom to the task at hand, but I’ve enlisted the writer of THE FLASH himself, Mr. Geoff Johns to help me in crafting questions that will be far from simple.
We’ll announce all the legal goodies and rules on 4/7, the day before the contest actually launches. In the meantime, you can prep for the fun by signing up for a Twitter account if you don’t have one. Once that’s done, take a moment to start following DC NATION, THE FLASH writer Geoff Johns and artist Francis Manapul.
