Francis Manapul Appreciation thread?

He was the best for Flash, DC are idiots for getting rid of him
>>
>>78351797
His Flash was great, certainly when compared to the shit we have now.

The current run is so bad it is damaging the legacy and past of the hero. Ret conning out key characters in addition to awful art and story telling is killing me.

But yeah, Manapul is arguably the best Flash artist. Waid or Johns + Manapul would be fucking amazing.

>>78351797

i love his work for superboy. he does mid-west, smalltown, home-y very well.

ill post some of my faves

That's amazing. Making me really upset he left Flash.

Although, his art on the current 'story' would be a waste.
>>
>>78351797
as much as i like that run, is not that special either, is the art what it makes it stand out and elevates it from an good book to great one. The writing is good but nothing out of what you expect from a Flash comic.

Manapul thread? Still one of my favorite covers.
>>
>>78351797
>DC are idiots for getting rid of him
Hasn't he been writing tie-ins and main art duties for Darkseid War?
>>
>>78353469
>comfy art
>Johns fixing up all that shit he fucked up

it was a good time
>>
>>78353528
And doing Aquaman Earth One. I think OP means the Flash ongoing though.
>>
>>78353528
He did covers for Darkseid War tie ins and has Aquaman Earth One
>>
>>78353557
>He did covers for Darkseid War tie ins
He also wrote two fo them
>>
>>78353469
Holy shit I just realized the moon has the brainiac symbol on it.

At the end of this story arc, Luthor hints that he is going to make a new clone of his DNA and Brainiac DNA, but that plot was never picked up or mentioned again.

Shiiiiiiiiiiiit. I wish they expanded on that plot. Superboy: Boy of Steel is one of my more favorite graphic novels.

>>78351797

This entire thread is retarded, Manapul did art duty on the issue of Justice League that came out LAST WEEK. written by johns btw >>78351991
>>
>>78353554

Is Bucc's indie book any good?

>>78355544
the one on the left in the first one and the top in this one both look muted

What's /co/'s opinion on Meta-Rogues?
>>
>>78357351
It's a pretty mediocre idea that was never really capitalized with until Forever Evil, where it comes in handy and leads to a few cool sequences.

But it was a good movie to have it be a mediocre idea even in universe. None of them are happy with it and it's really fucked them up badly.
>>
>>78357351
I don't care much either way.

I guess Cold works a little better with the gun. I prefer meta Glider to the ice skates.
>>
>>78357089
fuck those concept covers are cool
>>
>>78355395
They're both good to me. I think the left highlights his skill a bit more as the pencils seem a little less significant on the right, but the right has a good creepy effect since it's supposed to be weird god energies they're dealing with.
>>
>>78357351
served its purpose of showing why they don't really need to have powers, but I'm not sure if it was truly necessary to do that since it seems kind of obvious to me
>>
>>78351797
>DC are idiots for getting rid of him

Did you consider that maybe he wanted to work on other projects?
>>
>>78362157
No. Who would do that?
>>
>>78351991
I'm sorry, but Mike Wieringo was pretty great at Flash.
