    But this was still a good issue. Not a great issue, but a good issue. Personally, I can't wait to see the next and see how these characters go on vacation. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Jun 22, 2014

    This issue brought a lot to the table, but ultimately the importance of “The Rage of Ra's al Ghul” lies in the fact that it provides closure. Closure, not just for this arc, but for the entire mystic quality of the All-Caste and Untitled for the time being. I hope future issues look back on these last few chapters of Jason Todd's story and craft a more coherent train of thought. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 25, 2014

    I really hate to say that I think the reason I enjoyed this issue so much, was because it ended this story arc.  It's a very strange feeling to be so satisfied with an issue, because you know it will become more next issue.  But strangeness aside, this wasn't a bad end, it answered all the questions I had, and left me satisfied with the outcome.  So complete your collection of Red Hood's foray into the land of Magic, and check this out, and hopefully we'll be getting back to the Red Hood who kicks as while taking names.

    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Jan 27, 2014

    It was a solid ending to a storyline that seemed to drag at times. And I couldn't agree more with Jason, when he said he's had enough of magic for a while. In the words of Roy, "Oh, thank god!" Read Full Review

    I was optimistic with this storyline to begin with, but with each month, I began to realize I sort of hated Jason as this child of destiny clich. Fortunately, that's over! Elements of what made the Outlaws such a fun team to begin with begin to shine through the cracks in this issue, but unfortunately, James Tynion only has one issue left on the series. Makes you wonder what could have been if all these mystical elements weren't pressed so hard, but oh well. I don't know if I enjoyed this conclusion because it was pretty decent, or because it was the closure to a story I didn't like... either way, it was fun, yet marred with the same art issues I've had with the book for the past... well, however long it's been since Rocafort left.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 28, 2014

    The best part of the issue is that it brings an end to the odd, and often awkward and confusing, storyline allowing Todd to play hero and put an end to this chapter of his life. Hopefully this means the comic will move forward with less poorly-defined mysticism and on to more of Todd's journey of redemption. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio Jan 24, 2014

    Overall, the end to this arc feels almost hollow, leaving the reader wanting more from the conclusion of the story. Read Full Review

    Of all the Batman books this is definitely one of them. The end of the story was about as good as the arc as a whole, not very.

    Tynion's first (and thakfully final) arc ended insulting the readers' intelligence with a tired "It was all part of the plan" cliche while simultaneusly retconning it rendering the whole thing pointless.
