COMICS: First Look At <i>The Flash #1</i>; Writer/Artist Francis Manapul Reveals New Details!

Some great preview art has been revealed from The Flash #1 (including a meeting between the hero and his pre-New 52 wife, Iris West) as well as details on the direction of the series from co-writer and artist Francis Manapul...

"We have a bit of a leeway in [exploring ‘comic book science,’" co-writer and artist Francis Manapul told CNN in a recent interview. "What’s been really fun is finding real world scientific facts and pushing the ideas. When you read science journals where they’re theorizing, we’re able to ask, 'what if that wasn’t just a theory, but it was real?' With Barry [Allen, the Flash's altar ego] being a scientist himself, there’s lots of ways we can explore that."

"This may not be [scientifically] possible for us to do, but the Flash can do it. Readers [today] are more science savvy. They need that little wedge of cheese to bring them along, to let them know it’s based on science. We’re putting steroids on science and we’re pumping it up,"
he added. There's much more to be found over at the site, so be sure to click on the link below for that, but here's some of the preview art they also revealed...

Apologies in advance for the layout and quality of the following preview pages. CNN have embedded them in a slideshow meaning that the only way we could share them on CBM was via screengrabs.





















The Fastest Man Alive returns to his own monthly series from the writer/artist team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato! The Flash knows he can’t be everywhere at once, but what happens when he faces an all-new villain who really can! As if that’s not bad enough, this villain is a close friend!
