    The most true-to-character and entertaining of all the Future's End Month issues I've reviewed, I strongly suggest fans of Jason to pick up this book. A strong blend of fast-paced action, solid artwork, and an entertaining story come together to boost Red Hood and the Outlaws to the top of this month's books. Read Full Review

    Red Hood and the Outlaws Futures End #1 was an entertaining one-shot for fans who missed the days where Jason would just go hunting for criminal in his own way. Which was always cool to see. So it's just a fun little issue for readers who enjoy seeing anti-heroes in action. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 21, 2014

    This has to be the least grand of the Futures End stories and I really dig it for that.  Understand that all of our heroes are doing things that are drastically different than what we've known them to do and Jason is still just continuing keeping on, keeping on and that's awesome.  Just a fun one shot, where we see our former Robin doing what he does best and not making any excuses for it.  On top of all that we've got Scott Kolins drawing the hell out of Red Hood and he just looks awesome in this issue.  Go check it out and get your action on with this Futures End book.

    While the whole "weird future" element of Futures End barely plays a factor here, you've got to give some credit to Scott Kolins for making this business-as-usual story of the Red Hood look fantastic. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 18, 2014

    Scott Lobdell uses this Futures End special to explore Jason's actions as a solo player five years later. There's a kernel of an interesting story here as Lobdell loosely parallels the original appearance of Joker (Red Hood publicly targets high profile businessmen and executes them despite their many precautions). Had the issue focused more on that element, it might have worked. But Lobdell meanders far too much with his script and burdens most pages with a pointless and overwrought series of narrative captions. Read Full Review

    Nothing "Fresh 'n Easy" about this comic, which felt more like a recycled bag I use over and over at"the aforementioned grocery store. Read Full Review
