Grant: The writing on this book has been rather shaky the past few issues. Character motivations have been vague and quite a lot of plot elements have lacked clear reasons for their occurrences. It hasn't helped that the book has been without its primary artist. I don't have anything against Marcus To or Ray McCarthy, but their style is completely unlike that of Francis Manapul, and his absence has really hurt this book - perhaps as much as the poor writing. The Flash is great and all, but I've never been the biggest fan. Manapul's brilliant art is what gets me buying this book, so I hope his return can right the ship, because if things don't shape up, not even Manapul's pretty pictures can keep me buying this title.
An absolutely stellar week coming up, and I cannot wait. What will you be picking up at your local shop tomorrow?
