    This is an excellent relaunch that I highly recommend. I didn't expect much from this series when I first heard about it, but it has successfully completed its mission in keeping me hooked. Read Full Review

    I think Dixon's Batman and the Outsiders can be a successful and important part of the DCU, but I don't see it happening just yet. Without a firm knowledge of what the team is up against, it's difficult to care all that much about their recent missions. Likewise, there's not enough of a consistent thread between each issue and each mission to make me understand just why and how this team exists in the first place. In interviews and promotional pieces, we've been told over and over again that the Outsiders are a team that carries out the cloak and dagger missions that the Justice League has no stomach for. That might be the case, but we've yet to see it proven convincingly in the actual series. After all, there's nothing here that the JLA, Checkmate, the Suicide Squad or the Birds of Prey couldn't handle. Read Full Review

    For people who are fans of the current cast of "Batman and the Outsiders", I can imagine this must be a thrilling series to have all of their favorites gathered into one place. For readers who aren't particularly invested in them, though, it's more than a bit dull -- not the best way to draw in new readers, unfortunately. In the end, it's just not as exciting as it should be. Read Full Review
