Flash/Rogues vs. Grodd

This has been a brilliant series and along with Aquaman probably the most consistent comic in terms of quality. It has been one of my favourite comics in the New 52 and it just keeps getting better and better. It's amazingly written by Manapul and Buccellato and Manapul also does amazing art work on the series with Buccellato bringing excellent colouring to the series also. The issues they haven't done the art were still good but their art is just something else.

This issue sees The Rogues standing over and concious Flash looking at an army of Gorilla's lead by King Grodd. The Rogues realise they can't take them on on their own do they wake up the Flash. Flash explains that Grodd is trying to steel his powers for himself and makes a temporary truce with the Rogues. Glider accepts the truce and the Flash and the Rogues fight Grodd's army.

A good issue and yet again I'm happy Manapul is doing art for this series again. It was nice to see the Flash and the Rogues team up to take on this bigger threat, with Flash pointing out that when it's over they will finish what they started previously. I also liked Grodd's attitude when Trickster tried to make a deal with him (which I wont spoil). I loved all the action in this issue and it was just amazing seeing all these different elements coming from the Rogues whilst Flash is whizzing around the pages. Another thing I have loved about this series has been the panel breakdowns, they are spectacular and give the comic more uniqueness.

Final verdict. A brilliant continuation to what is a brilliant series. I would highly recommend both this comic and the series. Plus with Manapul and Buccellato doing art again there's another great reason to get this comic.

Rating: 4/5

    This is another one of the series I picked up because it was recommended it to me but I was still apprehensive with it because I wasn’t sure what I thought of the art from previews and it has had mixed reviews some people say it is a really good read others say it’s alright but I still wanted to try it out and see what I thought.PlotPatty Spivot takes Turbine to see Captain Frye he is about to announce who Captain Frye really is when Grodd attacks Central City.

    The cover's kinda so-so. The idea was decent, along with the execution, a little too much is shoved in here, but it's fairly well balanced. The biggest thing that bothers me is the change from the original solicit. The word 'Gorilla' spray-painted on the Central City sign was supposed to be yellow. It was really bright and eye-catching but the new purple paint is REALLY hard to see, I barely notice it even when I'm LOOKING for it.There's not a lot of Manapul's usual insane panel layouts, but his...
