    But Why Tho? - CJ Aug 14, 2019

    Batman and the Outsiders #4 is a stellar piece of character work from a stellar creative team. Next issue concludes the "Lesser Gods" story arc, and I hope that Hill, Soy, and Gandini close it out in style. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Aug 14, 2019

    There's not as much high octane action in this particular issue, but Soy's artwork is still very engaging even if most of the characters are just having conversations. Soy does incredible work with the facial expressions and body language of the cast that compliments the tone perfectly and remains dynamic with its perspective. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Adil Syed Aug 15, 2019

    An outstanding issue that really builds up to what should be an action-packed conclusion to the first arc. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Aug 14, 2019

    Batman And The Outsiders #4 has the dominos all lined up, but Bryan Hill seems to have left the table on a tilt, giving the story a sense of urgency and futility. While this is frustrating, and a bit of a downer, I know that with a writer of his calibre (and Kailber), the rug of doubt could be pulled out from under me in the blink of an eye. With a creative team as strong as this one, I'm looking forward to whatever the future may bring. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Aug 24, 2019

    Batman and the Outsiders continues to deliver as one of the more thoughtful team books out. As the team finally set off on their mission we understand who the team really are. As a testament to Bryan Hills writing, it is just as exciting to witness the outcome of the mission as it the mission itself. Read Full Review

    I feel like this could become a great series, but it'll have to do it in the second arc. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 26, 2019

    From what we see in the panels of Sofia and Ra's, it seems the Demon's Head has done his work well and the Outsiders will have their hands full in the battle to save Sofia's soul. For fans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 14, 2019

    Another issue of Batman and the Outsiders standing around while Sofia (you know, the girl they need to save) suffers.  I love Dexter Soy's art, but this book needs some forward momentum real soon.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Aug 22, 2019

    ......don't bother with this book if you have other things you're interested in. The only good things about it are Dexter Soy's art and the tiny interactions between Katana and Black Lightning. Those parts seem like they were edited in from a better book and that's about it. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Aug 15, 2019

    Batman & the Outsiders #4 isn't bad, but it's also far from great. There's a lot of potential here between the roster and the plot, but Hill is trying to do too much at once. There doesn't appear to be a consistent or cohesive focus, and that's only gutting the momentum of the story. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Aug 14, 2019

    It's not a bad issue. It's just not particularly great as it lurches forward towards what is (hopefully) an action-packed future. Read Full Review
