    FOREVER EVIL: ROGUES REBELLION is a tie-in that's not only worthwhile, but a must read for FLASH fans, even if you're not into FOREVER EVIL. Buccellato shines bright when writing these characters. There's a lot of love here for the Rogues, and the ending is what really elevates this team to a whole new level. However, what fans deserve is a series starring these characters written by Buccellato. Regardless of that, I highly recommend this issue and mini-series. Read Full Review

    The Rogues of Central City proved themselves worth of their name at the end of the day. In a world where they were subject to do as they're told, they still did what they wanted knowing the consequence. I stand by saying that this is the best story to come out of Forever Evil and take advantage of the potential that comes from it. It's just sad that this was only six issues because you really want to see more of what can be done with this team. Hopefully someone sees what can be done with them and jumps at the opportunity.

    Rouges Rebellion #6 was a great ending to an increasingly great story.  Brian Buccellato has made me not only love the Rogues, but respect them for what they stand for.  Scott Hepburn's art grew on me and this issue was great.  The Rogues are true heroes and I hope the team is here to stay.

    Overall, I'm mostly satisfied with this issue. It gave the team a nice send-off, introduced a cool gay hero/villain in Pied Piper, and it really brought the team together. Plus the art! Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Mar 27, 2014

    If there is one major gripe about the issue, it's final splash page. The heroic poses struck by the Rogues is not the problem, it's the inclusion of the ghostly forms of Heatwave and Captain Cold. There is no real point of including them. Heatwave's status is currently up in the air, and Cold is alive and well with the Lex Luthor's Injustice Gang. Perhaps it is meant to symbolize the bond between all members of the Rogues, whether or not they are present. Or maybe Hepburn just wanted to take advantage of an opportunity and draw all of the Rogues together. In the end, it raises unnecessary questions and draws the reader out of what is an otherwise satisfying conclusion. Read Full Review

    Is it a big throw down issue"yes, but Buccellato makes sure that you're rooting for the Rogues. Although they're criminals, they still fight with honor and for what they feel is right. Mirror Master is fighting for his one true love while he copes with self doubt, the Trickster is fighting for revenge, and the Pied Piper for Justice. They're not typical villains and within this series you come to understand just how atypical they are. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Mar 27, 2014

    This series had three interesting things involved in its premise, two of which went away within the first issue (Captain Cold and the artwork of Patrick Zircher). The third and only other interesting thing about this series was taking out the most boring element of the post-Flashpoint DC Universe, the Flash himself, Barry Allen. But by taking away their leader and putting the characters through a seemingly endless round robin of villain vs. villain battle scenes, the overall product came off as a bit lazy. And it didn't look the greatest, with some less-than-stellar artwork and cliche-ridden dialogue. Poor pacing and an unbelievably crummy ending make this not only disappointing for a lifelong DC fan (and reluctant-turned-staunch supporter of the New 52), but for a casual reader as well. Poor work all over the place by pretty much everyone involved. I'm glad it's over. Read Full Review

    I like the Rogues. This is my first real exposure to them since the reboot, and I don't know if it's I just don't like how they were tweaked, or this series simply wasn't to my tastes. I won't say it wasted my time or was completely without merit, but I found it disappointing and certainly had a lot of room for improvement. Read Full Review
