    THE ROGUE WAR SAGA TAKES SOME TWISTS

    The Flash: Rogue War basically picks up where the previous Flash trade paperback collection, 'The Secret of Barry Allen' left off. It reprints Flash ½, 212, 218, and 220 - 225 in a story that has the Flash as pretty much a guest star in his own title until the final quarter of the book. The Flash's Rogues are a divided group with Heatwave, the original Trickster, Pied Piper, and Magenta all working for the FBI in trying to bring the rest of the Rogues to justice. To this end, the body of the original Captain Boomerang has been stolen and taken to a secret lab where they intend to revive the dead villain long enough to find out key information about the Rogues. Ashley Zolomon is taken against her will to be the one to talk to Boomerang. Meanwhile the other Rogues including Captain Cold, Weather Wizard, The Top, Murmur, the New Trickster and others are hot on their heels and determined to find Boomerang's body and take out the turncoats. Things get especially nasty as these guys, particularly the Mirror Master show no qualms about killing anyone who gets in their way, often in a very creative and sadistic way. This eventually leads to an all-out battle royal between the two factions with the Flash, Kid Flash, and the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick, caught in the middle. But that's the least of Flash's troubles...his arch-enemy the twisted reverse Flash Zoom has returned and, in his own sick way, wants to make Wally West a better hero by making him feel the pain of loss. He recruits the original Professor Zoom and builds a cosmic treadmill to continually move time backwards to make Flash relive the moment when his wife Linda was hurt and lost the twins she was carrying. Zoom's powers are more than Wally can handle but help soon arrives from an unexpected source. While I enjoyed the Secret of Barry Allen I thought Rogue War was even better. It resolves a lot of things about the whole Rogues Gallery and explains the almost symbiotic relationship and rather unique code of honor that they maintain. We also learn a bit more about the new Captain Boomerang including a startling revelation about who is mother is. It's interesting to hear Ashely Zolomon talk about the difference between the Rogues of Gotham and those of Keystone City. Johns does a great job of juggling the various personalities of the Rogues and making them each unique in more ways than just their costumes and powers. As always the art by Howard Porter and Livesay is outstanding. Bold and yet it never seeks to overpower the reader. A cover gallery is included. Reviewed by Tim Janson
