Francis Manapul Draws Firestorm

I really dig Francis Manapul, current writer and artist on The Flash! If you haven’t been reading his run on The Flash, stop what you are doing right now and go buy that book. Right Now! It’s a real treat.

Today we’ll be looking at a few fantastic Firestorm sketches done by Francis Manapul. I use the term “sketch” loosely because some of these were done with watercolors. The first piece of artwork comes from match-head Clark Edwards! Clark met Francis at the Phoenix Comiccon this past weekend.

This next excellent piece comes from our good buddy Jon of the Fizzit Firestorm-themed blog. Jon met Francis back at Armageddon Con in New Zealand back in 2010.  You can find this piece on Jon’s Comic Art Fans page.

    very nice.
    Funny how even a lot of the artists seem to prefer the classic costume.

    I have a beat-up copy of FoF #20 that I carry with me at conventions, which is what I always hand over for reference. But I usually get the question “which one?” when I first ask, and everyone seems happy when it turns out I’m after the original. Except Francis lol, he spent half the time complaining about what a pain in the ass the chest emblem must be to draw all the time (in a good natured way of course ;)). He said he didn’t know how Jamal Igle did it, I pointed out that Jamal infact changed the design 😉 Great minds think alike?
