Black Lightning is an Outsider no more! It's up to Katana to take up the reigns of leader-ship as things look their darkest for the team-and the new addition of Babylon has thrown the team into flux. Plus, Batman is far from thrilled with the secrets that the Signal and Orphan are keeping from him. And this is exactly what Ra's al Ghul wants: a broken team that doesn't stand a chance against his new League and their deadliest assassin yet.

    The“A League of Their Own” doesn't put Batman and the Outsiders in a league of its own, but it does remain a very solid superhero comic that gives its characters ample opportunity to shine. Hill's very good at imparting ethos into the script, and Soy masterfully brings it to life. As the arc races towards its conclusion, you have to wonder what the actual final battle is going to look like with all of the machinations and chess games between Batman and Ra's Al Ghul going on, and I'm ready for it.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 11, 2020

    Dexter Soy delivers some blistering and dynamic action in this issue. The fight scenes are amazing and there is so much great detail throughout. Soy does some great work with scale in this issue as well and the final image is a testament to his skill. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 11, 2020

    Bryan Hill and Dexter Soy continue to deliver some top-notch storytelling with Batman & the Outsiders. I know it's been my go-to phrase when I think a creative team is killing it, but this is some serious masterclass work here and it's a shame more people aren't talking about it. This issue delivers one hell of a fight, some additional plot/ character development, and establishes some threads that should carry into the next arc! Again" This is some masterclass work!

    Though, there are some who could still pose a threat and push this group to the limit, and Ra's' is certainly one of them. Read Full Review

    But this is one of the most ruthless takes we've ever seen on Ra's Al Ghul, and he ends Batman and the Outsiders #11 by taking an action that's one of the most evil things he's ever done. There's a lot of story set up here, and I'm excited to see how Hill surprises us next. Read Full Review

    Bryan Hill has given us an intriguing new take on the Outsiders , but he has kept enough elements of the classic version that it doesn't feel like an entirely new concept. I have been enjoying his take on Batman and the Outsiders, and I look forward to seeing what Hill has planned for the team. Read Full Review

    In truth, there is a lot of establishing in this issue, but it works well in that it helps resolve some of the emotional notes that have been running through the series as well as bring all of the major players to a spot where the real fight can jump off: going up against Ra's.

    While continuing to save the final fight with Ra's in reserve, there's still enough here fans of the comic can enjoy. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 11, 2020

    Batman and the Outsiders #11 is a good combination of action and story and what I've wanted from this book from the get-go.  Dexter Soy's art is the icing on the cake, and this is a quick read, but for all the right reasons.  It's not perfect...Batman seems out of character, even from the last issue, but I had a good time watching the Outsiders kick butt, and that's a lot of what I want from this book.  Recommended.

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi Mar 12, 2020

    Batman and the Outsiders #11 is a visually pleasing issue with some fun action but held back by some choppy dialogue. Though not the strongest issue in the series, it contains enough to keep the reader interested in what is to come. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Mar 12, 2020

    I want to like this book so much then I am, and I feel iconoclastic writing about it. Everything that happens – on paper – is awesome. The fact of the Outsiders rolling over Ra's' men is cool, but there's no excitement in the scripting. If the plots stayed the same, but there was a different approach to the dialogue and outlining of the events and sequencing, this would be an easy series to recommend. But every month each scene reads as rote, uninspired, and obligatory. I know it can be better. There's too much potential in the characters to really spark off the page. Read Full Review
