When Batman recruited Black Lightning to join the Outsiders, he warned him of the dark world he was entering. Black Lightning shrugged it off, but now that Ra's al Ghul has gone after him directly, the darkness Batman warned of has enveloped him. Will the Outsiders be able to free him from it?

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Feb 13, 2020

    Batman & the Outsiders continues to be an absolute delight to read! It's the high-octane blockbuster that we want, but balanced with characterization and depth to near perfection. No page or panel is wasted with this creative team, and more so than any other book, I'd say you get your money's worth here. Batman & the Outsiders is a commitment with great payoffs, and I hope this is just the very beginning of things to come! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 12, 2020

    This series hit its stride after a strong first arc, although its weak spot remains generic villains Kaliber and Ishmael, who show up near the end of the issue. The Outsiders seem on the verge of a reunion, and it looks like it'll be a hell of a showdown. Read Full Review

    Batman and the Outsiders incorporates enough of the original title's elements to feel like a true successor to the original. But it also includes plenty of new elements, making it more than a rehash of its earlier incarnations. Bryan Hill has produced a captivating reimagination of the Outsiders for the post-Rebirth era.

    Although the needle doesnt move too much in terms of significant story progression this is another issue that doesnt have to struggle to sustain reader interest as this arc rolls on. Read Full Review

    Nothing really stands out in Batman and the Outsiders #10. Once the excitement starts the issue is over. If you are currently following the series then pick up a copy. If you have not been following then wait for a trade or the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Feb 13, 2020

    This book is written as an action book, first – last – and always, but it has the potential to be much more. More scenes establishing the dynamics of Bruce and Jefferson, Jefferson and Duke, Duke and Tatsu, Cassandra and Jefferson – all of that would be appreciated. It's very single-minded on its main hero/villain plot, and that only goes so far in terms of interest. It's right on the cusp of being truly good. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 24, 2020

    While most of the issue is actually dialogue offer clues about a doomsday weapon and Shiva's interests in partnering with Black Lightning, there is some action towards the end as Black Lightning and Shiva run into a bit of trouble though they do get some unexpected assistance from the sudden arrival of Katana, Signal and Cassandra. Maybe the team might survive Ra's machinations after all. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 12, 2020

    Batman and the Outsiders #10 felt rushed in both story and art.  I liked where we ended up, though, and look forward to an action-packed next issue, but something was just not right here. Read Full Review
