    Scott Kolins' art hasn't always been my cup of tea, but I'm happy to say I've loved the look of this series. It may be because Kolins has upped his game considerably, or because of colorist Dave McCaig's vibrant work, but each and every one of these pages is soaked with lush visuals that really make it a feast for the eyes. Kudos to both of them, and kudos to Johns for once again reminding us why the Rogues are awesome. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 28, 2008

    Each character is given time to shine and each has their personalities and motivations laid bare in a perfectly executed narrative by Johns, both progressing the story and involving us with each villain at the same time. Oh, and a guy gets a tornado in his stomach. Doesn't get any better than that. Read Full Review

    Final Crisis Rogues' Revenge #2 was another excellent read. Johns is doing a fantastic job treating the reader to a well constructed tie-in story. This is how tie-in stories should be handled. Johns delivers a story that stands well on its own, but still resolves a few dangling plotlines from Countdown as well as fleshing out some of the minor plotlines from the Final Crisis event. This story has been worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    The art helps build the tension and adds to the atmosphere of sordid desperation while still making the story easy to follow. It is rare to see such detailed art that isn't "shiney" or confusing. All in all, this miniseries contributes greatly to the FINAL CRISIS event while standing on its own as an exciting tale and a turning point in the lives of its leading characters. Read Full Review

    Rogues Revenge #2 is another great example of how strong these tie-ins to Final Crisis have been. But seriously, did you really expect less from Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins? DC, I plead you to strap this creative team to chairs and demand they write a monthly Rogues series. I would be there in await for itflash. Read Full Review
