    Besides all the hype and media-coverage, this is a truly solid read. Outsiders is one of D.C.s gems, and Winicks energy has become infectious. Read Full Review

    The art of Carlos D'Anda has a rather sketchy, unfinished look about it that left me rather disappointed, and I can't say I was overly impressed by its ability of convey the emotional states of the characters, as all the characters spend most of the issue sporting the same deadpan expressions. Now I will give the art credit for the visual impact of the scene where Grace discovers what's behind the door, and the art nicely captures the character's rage when she's pummelling a thug senseless in her search for answers. However, the art never quite manages to overcome the sense that it's only half-finished, from it's largely empty backgrounds, to its decidedly conventional panel layouts that never display any real sense of imagination in their delivery of the material. Still, I will concede that the art does manage to effectively present the important ideas, and I guess that's the most important element when it comes to the art. Read Full Review
