Manapul & Buccellato Off Flash With December’s #26



With DC Comics revealing their December 2013 solicits earlier today it was learned that a new creative team has joined The Flash for an issue.

Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato released a statement confirming their departure from The Flash; however, that is not the end of their stint together at DC as they have a new yet-to-be announced title coming in 2014.

The December DC solicits reveal Christos Cage and Neil Cooge are coming on board with The Flash #26 for one issue.

Buccellato revealed the following on his blog which reads in part:

Francis and I will be moving on to a NEW regular DC series that will hit stores in MARCH 2014. We can’t tell you what the series is (yet), but we are super excited about this new sandbox we get to play in!

We want to thank everyone who was involved in helping us shape Barry’s world for the last three years.

A HUGE thanks to the powers that be at DC, for taking a chance on two “new” writers and giving us the room to grow.

We love Barry… We’ll miss Barry… and we look forward to seeing what the future has in store for him. But this isn’t goodbye. Not YET.  Because of the way solicitations work, we have to announce this now… but don’t forget to pick up issue our Villains Month Books, and #24 and #25! Francis and I still have some story to tell before we hand Barry off…
