Francis Manapul Pt1 Flash Facts

Download The MP3 Here On this episode of Word Balloon, we begin a 2 part conversation with artist Francis Manapul, and discuss his dazzling art on books like the Flash and Adventure Comics with Geoff Johns. You'll hear about his takes on Connor Kent, and Barry Allen and the evolution of his art style from his days at Top Cow, to the present. Francis tells us about his comic beginings, the influences on his art from the Image founders to Mike Wieringo, and we discuss the role Filipino artists have played in American comic books, going back to the comic book bronze age.

Great interview! After hearing how influential Wieringo was to Manapul I would really like to listen to that early WB interview you did with the late artist. Unfortunately, the iTunes catalog doesn't go back far enough, any chance you can post it to Word Balloon University?
