After reading The Flash, Vol. 2, I did not expect this graphic novel to be this good. The Flash, Vol. 3: Rogues Reloaded by Joshua Williamson (illustrated by Carmine Di GIandomenico) combines great visuals and character driven story in one fantastic package.
Even though the main story line focuses on Thee Rogues and their issue, there are several short, but to the point, stories focusing on Barry Allen’s relationship with his girlfriend, Iris West, and Wally West (Kid Flash). The main story line adds some vagueness to the question of whether The Rogues are good or bad.
The best villains are ones that do bad things for good reasons.
The writers seem to have a problem though, what to do with Iris West?
She’s supposed to be an ace reporter, yet can’t figure out that Barry Allen is The Flash?
Is she waiting for him to tell her, but she already knows?
Barry is dying to tell her is The Flash every other page.
One the bright side, Kid Flash wasn’t as annoying.
Even though this graphic novel was a bit predictable, I still enjoyed it very much
The Rogues (currently Captain Cold, the Mirror Master, Heat Wave, the Weather Wizard, the Trickster, the Pied Piper, the Top, and Captain Boomerang) have left Central City after finally pulling of that “one big score” and are living it up in a beachside mansion. Only that that “one big score” was done on the backs of the wrong people, who are out for revenge.
The Rogues are not stupid, they know they’ll need help from The Flash in order to survive this ordeal.
