The Flash vol 3:Rouges Reloaded by Joshua Williamson
I am very grateful to DC Comics and NetGalley for allowing me to read this book. I have been very fortunate to be able to read these great books in Rebirth for reviews and this was the Flash book I was waiting for.
Since Rebirth started there has been a lack of classic Flash Rouges and we had no idea what happened to them Were they laying low until the city calmed. Central city had been plagued by a speed force storm and a slew of random speedsters. A new villain named Goodspeed putting the city in a state of terror, then there were random lackeys that tried to live up to the legacy of the Rouges. This book is the triumphant return of our favorite villains/anti-heroes.
The Rouges have been keeping a low profile and planning the theft that will finally beat the Flash. Starting with a trip out of the country to steal something outside of Central City hoping the Flash wouldn't figure it out. This is only the first step of their master plan that leads to some pretty clever plotting my Captain Cold and the others. I won't give everything away because the goal of course is for you to read it yourself.
The story was really well done and I couldn't put this down once I got going. My only mild isssue was the art work in this book wasn't as good as previous. I'm not sure why but since I read digital editions I like to use my favorite screen shots to point out parts that I feel are important. This book didn't really have a scene that stood out. I did like the variant cover gallery at the end though and I did feel like including one of my favorite classic style covers.
After reading this book and having time to think about this I really am enjoying this series and this book has me excited to see where the Rouges go from here. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
