rogue rage

drive-by readings

The Flash #4 (DC)
"Case One: The Dastardly Death of the Rogues, Part Four"
Geoff Johns
Francis Manapul
Brian Buccellato
Sal Cipriano
Scott Kolins/Michael Atiyeh (variant cover)

what we learned: one of the future Rogues break protocol and actually tells Barry Allen why they're arresting him (of course there's a reason why he would even kill a Rogue - and its one of those damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don't things). not far from the formerly washed-up Boomerang's heels, are the present-day Rogues, who apparently can't sit still while watching the conflict unfold on TV.
oh shit moment: the fact that i am reading a Flash comic without Wally West. i mean, i love Geoff Johns and all, but ...
what's next: who's Rogue Leader? i don't know, you tell me.

listen ... somebody has to ink Manapul quick. these pencil sketches are becoming stale.
