Rogue Satellite Comics Special IssueYou would think that something called a "special issue" would be a good jumping on pint for new readers. Not so for this comic. I wouldn’t have even picked it up but my retailer pointed out that Flaming Carrot made an appearance so I flipped through it and the since the art looked decent I figured what the heck.

The story revolves around a villain named Kingfish manipulating time. If most of the comic had focused on the few characters in the Kingfish sections of the book I might have been able to follow the story. As it was the action jumped from place to place throwing lots of characters into the mix and made for a very confusing read. The Flaming Carrot appearance was equally confusing and didn’t seem to have much to do with what was going on. I’m sure if I had all of the previous Rogue Satellite Comics issues I wouldn’t have been as confused and probably would have enjoyed the story.

The most positive thing I can say about Rogue Satellite Comics Special Issue is the artwork was good. There were certainly a lot of imaginatively designed heroes and villains.
