"Dark Trinity" part three! Red Hood and Artemis set aside their differences when they discover the powerful weapon that Black Mask has been after: a fully-formed clone of Superman! But what should they do with it? They can't possibly let something this powerful fall into the hands of the nefarious Black Mask, and perhaps if they play their cards right, he could become a powerful ally...but is the risk worth the reward?

    It's smart and shows a commitment to quality from everyone on the book that makes it well worth the read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 12, 2016

    Red Hood and the Outlaws continues being one of my favorite Rebirth titles and we haven't even gotten the full Outlaws up and running!  Scott Lobdell and Dexter Soy make this book so much fun to read, even when the story itself is far from lighthearted.  The only thing I'd change about this book is getting it twice a month!

    Tell your friends. There are only a few issues so far. Catching up will be easy. Get on board. This book is in the perfect hands. Fingers crossed that this dream team stays together for years to come. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Oct 13, 2016

    Overall, this series is still going strong and I can't wait for the next issue. The truly great thing right now going forward is that we're definitely going to get some great action, but Lobdell is delivering on the writing and character developments so we will actually care about what happens to them.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 12, 2016

    If you're looking for team building Red Hood and the Outlaws is turning out to be a master class in the subject. The story is slowly building towards team cohesion which increases anticipation and – if Lobdell can pull it off – one hell of a payoff. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Oct 12, 2016

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #3 is a sum greater than its parts. I have a number of problems, some more significant than others, but when I reread it, I can only smile. Consistent excellence from its artists, and lots of heart and humor from its writer make this book one that I'm looking forward to each month. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 12, 2016

    This is not a quick moving title, but the events are progressing at a reasonable pace considering the characters involved. It helps that Lobdell has a cast that's not involved in other pockets of the DCU and he can take the time to develop the team's origin. I'm enjoying this one a lot for its patience. There will be plenty of time for the action, but the team formation can only be done once. Better to get it done properly this time. Read Full Review

    GWW - Pwaelchl Oct 13, 2016

    Lobdell and Soy took on an interesting new roster of outcasts and are giving readers reasons to care about each of them. If this pacing and character exploration continues, this book deserves to stand out among the other titles set in Gotham. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 18, 2016

    Although he apparently still has Black Mask's trust, Jason is forced to admit the gangster continues to be several steps ahead of him (just as he must admit empathy to Bizarro's current situation which will eventually compel the hero to act). Red Hood may not know why Black Mask needs Bizarro, but he can be sure nothing good can come from such a pairing. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Great issue and characterization. And I strongly recommend this series.

    This Red Hood story continues to be way better than it has any right to be. Red Hood manages to get a little deeper into Black Mask's plan. Finally we get a little more attention given to Bizzaro. I'm really interested to see where they take him.

    The fact that this is by Scott Lobdell who wrote the original RHATO during the New 52, (the one where Starfire is essentially a stripper) shows you can do better. This is one of the sleeper hits of Rebirth and Todd is shaping up to be a solid leader to a trio of misfits. While I do miss the Red Hood/Arsenal bromance, Roy is back with the Titans which feels more natural due to his history with that team and who can forget the history he has with Dick as Robin and Speedy. If you have a few bucks to spare and want a book without the heavy hitters of the DC universe, this actually isn't that bad of a buy. You could do worse...

    Laughably awkward issue about Red Hood projecting his daddy issues all around him. The eyeroll-worthy parallel that the writer attempts to draw between Jason's resurrection and Bizarro's revival would be comical if the writer didn't expect readers to take it so seriously.
