What's the consensus on Brian/Manapul's run on the Flash? The book is crap now, but I personally really enjoyed what they did before the writer/artist changed. Was just curious to how you anons felt about it
I thought that, while still better than what we have now, the writing was not especially great. The tone was on the mark, and the art was great.
Manapul was waster drawing Batman in 'Tec, he's just too prone to colorful and bright stuff.
I don't know if he and Buccelato are still there or if they're in another book.
I actually thought he was a good antagonist to the Flash, as an idea at least if not the actual character, because he's someone who can be in a lot of different places at once. Unless you ramp up the Flash's powers at bullshit levels you can write something cool with that.
Granted, you can do something similar with an organization or group of villains, especially the rogues since they are charismatic and distinctive, but maybe Mob Rule's edge would be that they operate as one since they are one.
Pretty much this. It wasn't even moderately close to as insufferable as the current run as far as the writing goes, but it wasn't anything special on that end. Absolutely gorgeous book though.
They should've done so much better. They did a terrible job with The Rogues, Reverse Flash wasn't as good as the other two Zooms and the first arc was weak. Gorilla Warfare was cool though, they did a good job there.
Also, Turbine sucks, Nobody tops The Top.
Art was gorgeous of course.
Here's the rundown: they bring back Professor Zoom and cater to the CW crowd, reveal why Barry's mom died, poorly introduce Wally, and topped off by shit art that makes everything look metallic/spiked hair.
I get why others wouldn't be sold on Daniel, but personally I like having a third RF and one who could be redeemed but probably never will.
The only ok thing about him is the costume revamp. To be honest I've already forgotten his motivations for that arc
He has Zoom powers, has a shitty reason to hate the Flash, has a bunch of shitty sidekicks and in the end is defeated by a big ass ex-machina
No, really, they pull the reason why Barry can do a thing that took a bunch of people helping Wally do out of their ass
