    Tormey's art is fantastic. The action throughout is amazing and the sequence between Orphan and Ishmael is executed perfectly. Read Full Review

    This is the type of issue I've been waiting for.  Great, over the top action that uses the character work that came before it to make it that much better.  The art by Cian Tormey is perfect for the crazy action going on and I am so happy that I can recommend this issue! Read Full Review

    I have been enjoying Hill's take on Batman and the Outsiders. I look forward to seeing how they overcome the machinations of Ra's Al Ghul, and to see what shape the team is in after the dust settles. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Nov 13, 2019

    I've seen some people refer to Batman & the Outsiders as a slow burn. I don't think it's that at all. I think, more than anything, Hill needed to get editors out of his way, and he just needed a few issues to really find his footing. At this point, he's done that and then some! Batman & the Outsiders #7 is a stellar issue that delivers on plot progression, characterization, and throws in a surprising twist as well! I don't know where Hill plans on taking this book, but I know I'll be along for the ride because the title deserves your time and attention. Read Full Review

    This title tries to do a lot, and it doesn't always succeed, but the ambition is coming together into something pretty compelling. I'm hoping this next arc focused on Duke doubles down on those strengths. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Nov 13, 2019

    Batman and the Outsiders #7kicks off a new story arc while continuing to build on threads from previous issues, even if the Dark Knight himself is mostly absent from the title. Hill taking a slow-burn approach with the plot allows the readers to stay invested in the characters and is a great way to further develop them, especially with Duke. Time will tell if the Signal continues to shine bright or if he succumbs to the will of Ra's al Ghul. Read Full Review

    Batman and the Outsiders #7 still struggles a bit with too much exposition, but we're finally getting into the story for real now -- and it's one that has promise. Read Full Review
