    This is purely a transition issue, but it's a fun transition issue. The fight with Superman is a little stupid, since we all know it's not going to work, but the chat with Superman is more fun. And I loved the brief exchange where Arsenal tells Superman to pass along a message to Green Arrow. Legitimately funny. The heroes in this series have a nice rapport. If only Lobdell could give the Teen Titans a similarly nice rapport. The end was annoying, because I hate when the Joker is omnipotent, but I'm kind of looking forward to Jason Todd vs. the Joker, if we get to see it. Read Full Review

    As you might imagine, I wasn't thoroughly impressed with the issue. For this reason, it earns a 3/5. Don't get me wrong, I have high hopes for the series, especially in light of Death of the Family happening right now. Hopefully the next issue will be better. Read Full Review

    The Like I said, humorous at times, but the bigger point of the issue was just lost on me. Saw the Joker stuff coming as soon as Jason and Isabel were left alone, but nevertheless, it's not really substantial enough to contribute anything to my opinion on the individual issue. I enjoyed this one more than I did the space arc overall, but it was still just "alright" at best for me. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 21, 2012

    While it's not anything exceptional, RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS is far from bad. I'd say it manages to land somewhere in the middle and thankfully has some great art to compliment it.There's so much possibility when it comes to Joker's diabolical plans for the second Robin, especially after the twist in the zero issue. I hope Lobdell steps up to the plate and knocks this one out of the park because this story has the potential to be an emotional masterpiece if handled properly. I can't help but wonder if we'll see Arsenal and Starfire as Red Hood battles the Clown Prince of Crime over in Gotham City, though. Honestly, I'd be perfectly fine with the duo taking a backseat as the tie-in focuses solely on Todd's struggle with the Bat-villain because it definitely has the ability to fill that much space.

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Nov 28, 2012

    Overall, it's a bit of a mixed bag. Batman fans most likely won't give a crap about the first 3/4 of this comic as it makes Red Hood and his friends look like idiots but Super Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 28, 2012

    The art by Pascal Alixe is decent enough, a sort of rough Eddy Barrows. At the very least, the issue showed me Starfire isn't a brain-dead anymore! Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Sean Elks Nov 24, 2012

    This issue of Red Hood and the Outlaws is a victim of lazy writing. Every indication here suggests that Superman's appearance and the tie-in to Death of the Family was thrown together at the last minute with little thought put into it. It's an issue struggling to hold itself together on just a superficial level, and that is a real shame. Superman's shoe-horned role cheats us from having a far more relevant scene of Starfire saying goodbye to her former crew. And the sloppy rush toward Death of the Family cheats us from having... well... a good lead in to the Joker's return. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 26, 2012

    Given Jason Todd's personal experience with the Joker it should have been the easiest thing in the world to tie the comic to the ongoing Bat-title crossover. However, what we are given here is awkward beyond belief reinforcing the idea that the Joker is responsible for Todd being chosen as Robin in moves that make the impossibly complicated plans of Heath Ledger's Joker look amateurish by comparison. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    The meeting with Superman brings to light some interesting reactions from the Outlaws and it gives Jason's date Isabel a chance to show why she's a great addition to the book. However the art is on the mediocre side bringing down Lobdell's excellent narrative.
