You’d think the Rogues would know better than to go searching…but they either don’t know or just don’t care.

And even if they make it to Gorilla City alive, they have a version of Gorilla Grodd unlike anything you’ve ever seen waiting for them…Continuing this groundbreaking neo-noir take on some of the DCU’s greatest villains!

Ten years ago, the Rogues disbanded and went their separate ways. But time hasn’t been kind to the former blue-collar super-criminals. Caught in an endless cycle of prison, rehab, dead-end jobs, broken relationships, probation, and endless restitution fees, the Rogues are sick of paying for their crimes. Luckily, Captain Cold has a plan. One last job that will leave them all richer than their wildest dreams and free from their past…if they can survive. This is the Rogues as you’ve never seen them before, reimagined by the incredible talents of master storytellers Leomacs (Basketful of Heads) and Joshua Williamson (Batman, The Flash, Infinite Frontier). DC Black Label presents Rogues, a neo-noir heist that will make your blood run cold.
