How can Red Hood and Arsenal possibly survive an attack of killer mimes? Yeah, you read that right: mimes!

    Maybe I'm just happily surprised at how much I enjoyed this comic, but I am going to rate it pretty highly. Oh, and if you could explain the disappearing mime panel in the comments below I'd appreciate it. Read Full Review

    All in all Red Hood/Arsenal #2 was an okay comic. There were some good moments that will leave youliking both Red Hood and Arsenal a little more, but I think it could have been better with less jokes and more action. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 9, 2015

    Red Hood/Arsenal continues it's foray into the ridiculousness and that's what makes this book so hard to review.  It doesn't take itself seriously and I don't think the reader is supposed to either.  It's all about what you expect going in I guess because while I would like a more serious story, this series at this point looks like it won't be giving it to me.  What I can tell you for sure though is, the art in this book is so much better than what we got in the previous issue, but the story merely continues to show us that Jason and Roy are bad asses...... that's about it.   Read Full Review

    Overall: While I've come to accept that this is not your father's Jason Todd narrative, Red Hood/Arsenal has set itself up as a bro-y journey designed for fans of bro-y one-liners and bro-y beat-em-ups. Think Marcus and Dom from Gears of War except with more showers and mimes. It's enough to keep me entertained about what's coming next, but the premise is nothing to be crazy about. At least Lobdell has accepted that he can't write serious, heavy premises. Read Full Review

    Lobdell isn't taking itself seriously and is delivering a story that is simply fun from start to beginning, however, it keeps a balnce between ridiculousness and seriousness that makes the book feel closer in tone to Duggan and Posehn's Deadpool rather than Palmiotti and Conners' Harley Quinn. The banter between Jason and Roy is delight to read and got my quite a few laughs through the whole issue, their dynamic reminded me a lot of the Winchester Brothers in Supernatural. Artwise was also a treat for the eyes, Pantalena did a great work although his Roy looks really weird. I wouldn't mind if Medri and Pantalena keep sharing art duties to be honest.

    This was a pretty fun read I had a few good chuckles from the bromance that Jason and roy have. THe action scenes were pretty decent I do wish the story was a little more serious but compared to the angst story line of pre52 I like the silly stupid fun stories a little better for Jason and Roy.

    Lobdell tries to be "funny", but the execution works just as well as how you'd expect an out-of-touch veteran writer's attempt to appeal to 13 year olds to be.
