Interviews: Francis Manapul at CBR “Tour De (Speed) Force”

Launching in April 2010, The relaunch of the Flash ongoing series is already looking to be one of the biggest releases on DC Comics schedule for next year. Written by Geoff Johns, the book will spotlight the two current Flashes in the DCU — Barry Allen in the lead feature with art by Francis Manapul, and Wally West in the backup illustrated by veteran Flash artist Scott Kolins.

Until then, Francis will be wrapping up his work on Adventure Comics’ Superboy feature and doing the covers for the upcoming Blackest Night: Flash mini-series.

Yesterday, Comic Book Resources posted an short interview with Francis about his approach to drawing the Flash and coming up with unique ways to portray speed, as well as give Barry Allen’s Flash a unique visual identity.
