The Flash: Mark Waid Comments on Bart Allen Casting

The CW announced today that Bart Allen, the grandson of The Flash and the speedster hero known as Impulse, has been cast on The Flash...and the man who co-created the character couldn't be happier about it. Mark Waid, the fan-favorite Flash comics writer who also created Savitar, and who has been name-dropped on The CW's The Flash more than once, told ComicBook today that he and co-creator Humberto Ramos have been waiting for this moment for years. That makes sense, because by the time Bart was created in the comics, Waid himself had already contributed to a TV tie-in for the 1990 The Flash TV series starring John Wesley Shipp in the title role.

GRAPHIC NOVEL CLUB: Mark Waid on KINGDOM COME and the most important year in comics

The Beat is a proud sponsor of Comix Experience’s Graphic Novel of the Month Clubs, which bring comics fans a curated mix of the best of new release graphic novels and conversations with the creators who make them. Each month, the staff of Comix Experience votes on three sets of upcoming books they are most excited about—one gets presented to adults, another to middle readers, and the third is a classic. Each club provides swag like original signed custom bookplates for adults or buttons and magnets for the kids (in this case, the former, to support the featured Comics Masterpiece book, Kingdom Come).
