On the run from a police task force assigned to take him out, The Flash must face the CCPDs newest deputies: The Rogues. As you can tell from the cover, it does not go particularly well.

    This another really strong issue. The action is fantastic, there are nice slow moments for the characters and it is well put together in both the writing and the art. I have a couple of minor complaints but it's still a fun read. I definitely recommend checking this issue out. Read Full Review

    Assisting them on this is artist Phillippe Briones, whose art does a great job at capturing the same frenetic pop of the story. Someone like Alex Ross would feel out of place on this book, where highly detailed paintings would bog down the reader as they pause to admire his work. Instead, we have Briones and company, whose strong lines, bright colors, and conservativeshading brings a sort of buoyant levity to the book that lets us bounce from one panel to the next. It's vibrant, emotive, and alwaysrelentlessly fun to look at. Read Full Review

    This issue is a whole lot of setup getting us to the big #50 issue coming up next.  The story and art are both good, but the overall feeling I got from this issue was "wait until you see what comes next".  While that will definitely  get a return visit from me, it didn't leave me with the best taste in my mouth for this particular issue.  If you are a sucker for the Flash (like me), you will surely enjoy this issue.  If you have been waiting for something different, you might as well wait a little bit longer.

    Pitting the police-supported Rogues against a wanted Flash has created the most fun and compelling writing this book has seen in a few years. Unfortunately, some misguided decisions mid-way through this issue might ruin that and make this book unreadable for some. Read Full Review
