Tony Daniel Joins The Flash

DC Comics has announced that artist Tony Daniel will become the regular penciller on The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive beginning with issue eleven, during writer Marc Guggenheim's first story arc as the title's new writer. The news is accompanied by a note that Flash fans will be getting two beautiful covers for this exciting issue--Daniel has provided a striking variant cover featuring the scarlet speedster fighting his famous Rogues. Clearly, Guggeheim and Daniel will be sticking to what has been proven to work as they begin their run on The Flash. I, for one, am looking forward to it.

Acclaimed artist Tony Daniel (Teen Titans) steps in to pencil The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #11, written by Marc Guggenheim and inked by Art Thibert. Daniel will remain on The Flash as the new series penciller. In this story, called "Full Throttle," the top Rogues are united by one voice to take down the Flash--but who is it? "I'm looking forward to working on The Flash with Marc Guggenheim, who I think is a very gifted and unique up-and-coming writer destined for big success," says Daniel. "I've always been a huge Bart Allen fan and the Flash is one of the most recognized DC icons. 'A' game, here I come!" Also, DC Comics has added a variant cover by Daniel to issue #11, which retailers will receive in a split of approximately 50/50 with the solicited cover by Ethan Van Sciver.

I believe it's time for some cautious optimism. Like you, though, perhaps I should put some emphasis on the caution. We'll soon see.
