The Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo this weekend was full of exciting news. Not only did we premiere lots of art for many of our books coming out this September, but two of our artists were also the distinguished recipients of the 2011 Joe Shuster Awards. Congratulations to Fiona Staples, who won for Outstanding Comic Book Cover Artist for numerous titles including DV8: GODS AND MONSTERS #1-8 and SUPERMAN/BATMAN #79. Congratulations are also in order for Francis Manapul, who won the award for Outstanding Comic Book Artist for a variety of books including ADVENTURE COMICS #6, SUPERMAN/BATMAN #75, and THE FLASH #1-6. And speaking of Francis Manapul, check out the above image for a first look at this fall’s THE FLASH #1, where he’ll be serving double duty as the artist and co-writer along with Brian Buccelato. And if that’s not enough, head over to COMIC BOOK RESOURCES as they have the gorgeous first spread from issue #1. Keep checking back to THE SOURCE for more info, art, and details about THE FLASH in the coming months.
