It's the ultimate battle royale as team member faces off against team member! It's Geo-Force verses Black Lightning for the control--and the fate--of The Outsiders, and the team will never be the same again!

    So, for the time being, I am still in. If any Outsiders fans out there want to fill in some of my gaps here, or tell me if I have misread things completely, please chime in. Read Full Review

    Outsiders #28 isn't necessarily a bad comic, but it's not a good one. If DiDio can turn this boring, contrived initial conflict into a launching pad for greater stories, this debut arc might just turn out to be a necessary evil and means to an end. For now, it's just a mediocre superhero comic. Read Full Review

    In the end though this issue was a let-down for the most part due to the reasons mentioned above. It just became extremely hard to buy into the story when so many characters were fundamentally flawed in the authors design. It is possible that Didio can turn things around because there is some potential there in the foundation to build upon. However, it is of utmost importance that a better grasp of who these characters are is necessary to make that happen. Read Full Review

    The saving grace of this issue is the art. Philip Tan’s pencils are not on top of his game but capably tell the story and convey emotion well enough. It just suffers for inconsistencies all the way through but luckily does not cause any distractions because that is the last thing this issue would have needed. It is all not negative though as I feel that Didio does an impressive job of pacing the story and adding a depth to the plot. If he could manage to get a grasp on just who these characters are and how they behave he may be able to churn out a seriously good title instead of this identity crisis that plagues the Outsiders.
