    Batman-News - Sean Buckley May 26, 2015

    Overall: Fun, fast-paced, and full of moments that bring back memories of comics-gone-by, Batman and the Outsiders provides readers with everything that was promised with the release of Convergence. If you are following this event at all, or are fans of the original Outsiders runs, this is a definite pick-up. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Max Eber May 22, 2015

    This is one of the better Convergence two parters, it's flashy enough or perhaps solid enough art-wise to set it apart from some of the more slapdash issues. Convergence Batman And The Outsiders #2 is nothing stellar but it's also a lot better and it's cool to see the Outsiders in any capacity after Batman Incorporated. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 20, 2015

    Considering the limitations this issue is working within, it pulls off an entertaining, engaging story with a great economy of space. The ending is a giant cliffhanger, which is both a good thing and a bad, but even with the cliffhanger, it actually feels satisfying and complete. Theres not a lot of character or story, but the action and dialog are both strong enough to make this an easy recommendation, particularly to fans of this permutation of Batman and the Outsiders. Even with little prior knowledge, theres really only one large, OMAC-shaped hole in the basic understanding of the issue, so its still an easy recommendation. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair May 20, 2015

    Overall this was a pretty decent issue, it showed off some characters that I am now a little more interested in…and I would be curious to know if their portrayals were accurate. Although I am not too familiar with the original Batman and the Outsiders run, this story has piqued an interest and I may be going back to see what this team accomplished during its run. This was definitely one of the better tie-ins that I have read and would definitely recommend to any Batman fan. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 25, 2015

    A well-drawn issue, with nice character work, that ends abruptly (but at least it gets an ending.) Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie May 27, 2015

    No, this isnt a particularly bad issue, it just pales in comparison to the potential demonstrated in the first half of this particular tie-in. This is definitely one of those stories that suffered not for the characters, plot, writer or artists, but rather for the amount of time it had to be told (or lack thereof). Its not a complete loss though, if Marc Andreyko accomplished anything with this story it was making me interested in going back and reading older Batman and the Outsiders stories to find out more about the characters.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 20, 2015

    This issue was a letdown, but not because of anything Marc Andreyko did.  The restraints of the Convergence Event was to blame for what Andreyko didn't and couldn't do.  It's a testament to his storytelling that I wanted so much more and hope that someday we will get it.  Carlos D'Ando's art was great again, but in the end, this issue felt like another Convergence missed opportunity.
