Flash stops a crime and sees a familiar face from his past...
Francis Manapul & Brian Buccellato
For me personally, this title was one my most anticipated titles of DC's New 52
, not to mention one of the ones I was most curious about, considering Flashpoint
and its potential effects on Barry and his life. This time around, Geoff Johns
isn't present on the creative team, as instead Francis Manapul
and his colorist Brian Buccellato
have stepped up and taken on the writing chores themselves. That seems to be happening a lot with the New 52,
with writer/artist teams, but Manapul
does a much better job than I would have expected. This is an interesting book, and to be honest, it did take me some time to appreciate it and let go of elements from pre-New 52
. It was challenging, but the earnestness of how Barry is both written and illustrated by Manapul
really helped to break down those preconceptions and make me enjoy this new version of Barry Allen as the Flash.
