    So, another strong issue from Brian and team, and I'm still fully onboard with this mini-series. Just slightly concerned where Brian is going with all of this though, considering where the team ends up on that final page, and what happens to them. That had me scratching my head a little since it appears to conflict with what's going on in Peter J. Tomasi's Forever Evil: Arkham War right now. We'll see next month I suppose! Read Full Review

    Forever Evil " Rogues Rebellion in general is a fun read that you should pick up if you're following the events of Forever Evil. Not as great as the first issue, but that doesn't diminish it's entertainment value. The confrontations between them Deathstorm and Power Ring, Parasite, and ending up with Poison Ivy is something which again makes this fun. Some could argue that the pattern could show no direction, but I believe that exploration through this now broken world is just as important to focus on. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is an off-beat book. It's a spin-off of one of the darker event comics DC has done, yet contrasts that completely by being fun and bright. So far, I'm into it! Read Full Review

    The Rogues lost their leader, made stops in three of the biggest cities of the DCU, and have most of the worlds baddies hunting them down and thats just the second issue. Buccellato and Hepburn are giving readers a reason to smile as Forever Evil marches on. If you love DC and are looking for a fun time, this is the title for you. Read Full Review

    The second issue of ROGUES REBELLION didn't grab me as much as the first issue, but it was still a great read. It's a ton of fun watching some of my favorite villains in the DCU go on the run in a world run by some truly terrifying bad guys. Buccellato has a lot of love for these characters and it truly shows. Overall, it's a truly fun read and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    While the rest of "Forever Evil" grapples with the bigger questions of the whereabouts of the Justice League, the moon being shifted out of its orbit and general villainy, Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion focuses on a compelling set of characters at the heart of the maelstrom, and is all the more rewarding for it.

    Of course I cannot conclude without finally talking about the art of Scott Hepburn, who contributed pages along with Patrick Zircher to the first issue, as it was a point of contention with readers. While his previous work seemed rushed and out of focus in some key areas, his contributions here have a more solid and consistent feel to them. It's cartoony but without sacrificing integrity to the work as a whole and the various touches here and there that Hepburn adds really give it a homey aura. Buccellato is on form and reading this really gives hope for his concluding arc on The Flash without collaborator Francis Manapul. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Nov 20, 2013

    Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion #2 was a step down from the last issue unfortantely due to a lack of story progression and the artwork not fitting the tone of the story well. It's certainly not enough for me to say don't read the book, since it is still enjoyable, but the quality took a step back this time around. Hopefully, this will be as worst as it gets.

    This is not a required read to enjoy the Forever Evil event, but it's shaping up to be a fun series that may further define the Rogues' place and impact in the New 52. I'm hoping that this creative team can build on the momentum of this issue as after reading this one, I'll be back for the rest. Read Full Review

    While this book had its issues, it was still good enough to keep me excited about the next. Somehow the team made it to Gotham. So maybe theyll have a part to play in the Arkham War? Thats something to look forward to as well as finding out whats going on with Mirror Masters powers! Read Full Review

    An action packed issue with my new favorite rag tag group of anti heroes. Not too much story but an interesting seed was planted towards the end and a hilarious poke at everyone's new favorite tv show makes it an issue to pick up. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 24, 2013

    Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion #2 was a disappointing read to me.  The Rogues are just thrown around between Villains and the best parts were already in Forever Evil #3.  The story is progressing at a snails pace and the art style doesn't fit the tone of the book.  I hope the story picks up soon or I'm out.

    The last paragraph of each of my reviews is usually spent making predictions and spending further praise. I have none. This book was awful. Buccellato taking over Detective Comics makes me worry that I will not be re-adding the title after John Layman's departure. At least that one will have good artwork, though. This series, unfortunately, might have been better suited as a one-shot that led into the events of Forever Evil: Arkham War. Because, let's face it, the only reason I'm going to be picking up the rest of the series (other than my obsessive-compulsive disorder when it comes to finishing stories out) is my love for all things Batman. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm thinking this series is going to be yet another example of why people hate crossover events. Read Full Review
