The last issue of FOREVER EVIL: ROGUES REBELLION gives you the very best of the Rogues, in an outstanding story that will definitely leave you wanting more! Though I’m sad to see this excellent mini-series end, at least this tale ends on a spectacular high note with issue #6. Let’s get to the review:
We finally come down to one last secret to be revealed as Brian Buccellato bids a fond farewell to The Flash and heads off into the Gotham sunset. Barry is tracking down the Keystone Killer, but there are other powerful secrets that will be unearthed along the way in this exceptional issue of THE FLASH.
This week sees the release of TWO Flash comic books (how often does that happen?), the final issues written by Brian Buccellato. The first issue of the Francis Manapul/Brian Buccellato run on Detective Comics has also arrived in stores today ships next week. (Oops – I saw a preview and didn’t check the date on it.)
The Flash #29: Written by Brian Buccellato, art by Agustin Padilla. Flash and Deadman team up to find the supernatural Keystone Killer before he strikes again. It’s a mystery that may — or may not — answer the question of who really killed Barry Allen’s mother in the post-Flashpoint timeline. Preview at Hero Complex.
Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion #6 (of 6): The Rogues battle Gorilla Grodd, Parasite and a slew of the Crime Syndicate’s co-opted thugs in the ruins of the Gem Cities. The outcome doesn’t look good for the Rogues, but these blue-collar opportunists never back away from a fight! Written by Brian Buccellato, art by Scott Hepburn. Preview at DC Comics.
And in digital backissues…
The Flash #184: Crossfire Part One. His allies have been taken out of play one by one, and now Wally West is caught between the New Rogues in Central City and the Thinker’s total control of Keystone City. Written by Geoff Johns, art by Scott Kolins and Doug Hazlewood.
Incoming Flash writers Robert Venditti and Van Jensen are featured today over at Newsarama in a thorough interview on their approach to and plans for their run, which begins in April with issue #30.
The two touch on their plans for the reintroduction of Wally West, as well as their focus on Barry Allen’s law-enforcement methods and the unique identity of Central City. Follow the jump for the latest!
Photos from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron have revealed that film’s version of the Marvel speedster, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Notable is that in the Disney/Marvel Studios version, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch aren’t wearing traditional superhero costumes so much as ordinary street clothes that call to mind their comic book looks.
Back in January, Fox released their version of the character from X-Men: Days of Future Past on the cover of Empire Magazine. They took a considerably different approach to the character design.
The Rogues battle Gorilla Grodd, Parasite and a slew of the Crime Syndicate’s co-opted thugs in the ruins of the Gem Cities. The outcome doesn’t look good for the Rogues, but these blue-collar opportunists never back away from a fight! Look for FOREVER EVIL: ROGUES REBELLION #6, written by Brian Buccellato and illustrated by Scott Hepburn, this Wednesday.
The issue arrives in stores on Wednesday, along with Flash #29. A preview of Flash was released last Friday.
