Batman is going to push the Outsiders to their absolute limits in order for them to stop Ra’s al Ghul once and for all. He’ll force them all to use their powers in ways they never imagined and possibly push them over the edge in the process! Batman and Black Lightning will need to decide who the true leader of the team is, or Ra’s’s victory will be assured!

    Batman and the Outsiders #14 is another fine issue from Bryan Hill and Dexter Soy. Each month they maintain a consistent level of excellence. I look forward to seeing how the story progresses as the Outsiders' war against Ra's Al Ghul plays out. Read Full Review

    This title has consistently built since its first arc, and it's one of DC's most underrated books at the moment. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Jul 7, 2020

    Batman and the Outsiders #14 presses the pedal to the gas, darting back and forth between two different storylines with ease. Now that the story is starting to pick up speed, I'm eager to see how the Outsiders deal with Ra's doomsday weapon and what Lady Shiva's ultimate endgame is. Hopefully, Soy and Gandini continue to stick around for the rest of the arc. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 8, 2020

    Dexter Soy delivers some beautiful visuals throughout this issue. Not only does his style perfectly match the tone and themes of Hill's story, but it also visually stunning in various moments including Jefferson using his powers as well as a subtle conversation between Shiva and Katana.

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jul 8, 2020

    The Outsiders continue to inch ever so slowly toward their retaliation against Ra's Al Ghul. If you wanna see Black Lightning levitate or Duke teeter over to the dark side, you're gonna want to pick up this issue.  Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 15, 2020

    Batman & the Outsiders #14 (thankfully) marks a more proactive turn for the heroes who up until this point have been reacting to Ra's plans. It also reveals to the Outsiders that Shiva is in communication with Batman and has been working, at least in part, with him for the last few issues. Read Full Review

    Batman and his team have literally made the walls come tumbling down this month, so the Demon's wrath will be terrible indeed. I can't wait to see his response! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi Jul 30, 2020

    Batman and the Outsiders #14 (Hill, Soy, Gandini) is a pleasant surprise in a series that seems to have had a slow start. Hill has several power dynamics going with Batman, Lady Shiva, and Black Lighting that could be extremely interesting, which just might be the spark the series needs. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 8, 2020

    This is far from a perfect issue and overall falls short as far as plot progression is concerned. There are some strong moments though " even if they are low-key. If there's one thing I've learned though, it's to trust Bryan Hill and Dexter Soy. They clearly have a vision, and I haven't been disappointed yet. So, while I do wish for the pace to pick up a little, I know there's a purpose to everything we're getting now. Read Full Review

    Batman and the Outsiders had definitely hit its stride in terms of story and while things do drag a little in terms of pacing in Batman and the Outsiders #14, the issue rightly focuses on a bit of character development"Black Lightning getting his upgraded powers in particular"in a way that starts to truly set things up for a coming battle with Ra's al Ghul.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 6, 2020

    This issue takes a huge step backward with scenes that make no sense based on previous issues, and little to no plot progression by the end.  Dexter Soy's art is good, but that's it.  I hope the next issue rebounds because this one was plain bad. Read Full Review
