What is the origin of Mirror Master, and why is he so obsessed with his career as a Rogue and his endless battles with the Flash?

    One last thing, check out the poker game at the close of the issue. Notice anything deceivingly odd about the guest stars cards? You tell me, how many aces are in a standard deck of cards? Read Full Review

    Steven Cummings manages to capture the unusual methods of attack that the Mirror Master uses to battle the F.B.I. agents, with the sequence where one of the agents is shattered being particularly effective, thanks to that one panel of the broken piece of the agent's body. However the credit page shot looked a bit off as the character looked a bit like a teenager playing dress-up, and this is like due to the overpowering nature of the shadow he casts. However, the visual power of the final shot of the issue is nicely delivered, and I have to say Ethan Van Sciver turns in a fantastic looking cover visual, that visually sells the Mirror Master's gimmick.

    On the art is Steven Cummings, and he fills in admirably on the book. Ever since Kolins left at the end of issue 200 it seems like the interiors have been either blah or simply bad. Steven draws our villain as sort of goofy (which, honestly, the Mirror Master is), but at the same time makes his actions very deadly. There is no doubt that this is one villain that you dont want to underestimate. Read Full Review

    I havent got a lot to say about it, it just wasnt up to standard. The art was ok, shows good action and movement in the panels, but the story just dragged. Heres to next month when something might actually happen, that involves the title character. Read Full Review
