This Week: Rogues’ Revenge, Legacies & More

This week sees the long-awaited release of the trade paperback of Final Crisis: Rogues’ Revenge. (The hardcover came out almost exactly a year ago.)

Final Crisis: Rogues’ Revenge TPB

Written by GEOFF JOHNS • Art and cover by SCOTT KOLINS

The Flash Rogues Gallery has had enough. The team of villains is ready to remind the world why they’re not to be messed with in this title collecting their return in FINAL CRISIS: ROGUES’ REVENGE #1-3 as well as stories from THE FLASH #182 and #197.

Notes: I like to think of this book as “Rogues: Rebirth.” The main reason it exists is so that Geoff Johns can correct the way the Rogues were portrayed during Countdown and say, “No, this is how the Rogues work!” The additional stories are spotlights on Captain Cold and Zoom.

I had just started writing reviews when the original miniseries came out. You can read them here:

Buy it at your local comic shop this week, at Comic-Con over the weekend, or order it from Amazon for next week.

    Maybe for you guys. As someone who only ever cared about the speedster heroes and not the Rogues (of any book)….I’ve been bored stiff. Thank goodness my Justice Riders Elseworld’s copy finally arrived. At least I got something to to read now even if it isn’t quite Wally.

    (Hold on.)

    Eh, flipping through it and I think I’m going to be liking Cowboy Wally. Oh…is that Beetle…with Booster? lol! 🙂

        I loved the opening scene with Wally…his smugness there is so ic. 😛 The only disappointment was that we never did learn just why he had to mercy kill his uncle…and there was never to be a sequel. Argh. I want a sequel now!

        *sigh* When the heck is Flashpoint going to start? 2010 is being the longest year EVER for me. I don’t even want to think about the idea someone mentioned to me that Wally in that may be yet another 1-2 page cameo in an issue or two. 🙁

          I really wanted to like Justice Riders. I think it would have worked better for me if all the comic nods were there, but the powers weren’t. Make Wally the fastest gunslinger. Let Diana use a lasso. A little more grounded and less fantasy. But then I’d probably be the only person who liked it.
