Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion #3 Review

Written by: Brian Buccellato
Art by: Scott Hepburn and Andre Coelho
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: December 18, 2014

Rogues meet the Rogues

The Rogues find themselves in Gotham and  become intimate with some of Gotham's most famous villains. Things don't go so well, but the Rogues never leave a man behind...or do they?

Brian Buccellato gives us a fun issue.  It's just not very good.  We get to see the Rogues (minus Captain Cold) deal with some of Gotham's most colorful villains.  However, it seems forced and desperate.  This book is the weakest of the Forever Evil tie-ins mainly because it really is going nowhere the other books haven't.  Last issue was a recap of Forever Evil #3 and this issue is a weak Arkham War tie-in. After three issues, this series is showing that the Rogues while fun, can't carry their own book.  I wish I could say more about this issue, but not much goes on plot wise.

The artwork in this book is neither fun or's awful.  Scott Hepburn and Andre Coehlo should be ashamed.  It's that bad.

Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion is the weakest of the Forever Evil tie-ins and this issue is no exception.  The Rogues combined with some of Batman's best villains is bound to be fun, but is it too much to ask for a good story to go with it?  Add in some of the worst art I've seen in a New 52 book and I can truly recommend everyone steering clear of this one.



  1. Well..this isnt really a rogue story really!! It doesnt have captain cold and trickster is here and there, plus now heat wave is gone!! I do like the mirror master and heatwave conversations but I think its better then arkham war!!

    1. I agree. I really was looking forward to this book, but it's hardly been the full Rogues. Very dissapointing.
