    Outsiders #6 is one of the most original single issues that we have read in a long time. The creative team demonstrates their love for the mainstream and obscure elements of the DC Universe, and the setup for the next issue has some…planetary implications. In addition to the incredible narrative, the art, coloring, and lettering was stellar throughout the entire issue, working in perfect harmony to make this title our pick of the week. We truly hope that the team continues to explore these aspects of the DC Universe, because it was genuinely impressive.  Read Full Review

    Where is it going next? I have no idea, and that's a rarity in comics these days. I hope Lanzing and Kelly keep this gloriously weird book going as long as possible. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Collier Jennings Apr 9, 2024

    Outsiders #6 once again breaks into the realm of metafiction, delivering some jaw-dropping revelations in the process. I might sound like a broken record at this point but it bears repeating: comics like these don't come along that often and when they do, they're worth a read. Read Full Review

    A bonkers issue which deftly illustrates the futility of searching for answer in an infinite multiverse of possibility. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 9, 2024

    Outsiders #6 takes the comic entirely out of reality. The writing is intelligent and unique, approaching the book from a fascinating angle. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - James Attias Apr 9, 2024

    Outsiders #6 is a very unusual meta-issue that aims to add to the bigger picture when in reality it made everything feel just a bit more confusing. Hopefully, we'll get a more linear tale next time. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Apr 9, 2024

    This was alright, but the actual Outsiders are taking a backseat to Wildstorm! What is abundantly clear is that this is DC's attempt at literally reviving Planetary. With Drummer's secret partially revealed, I can comfortably recommend this to any Wildstorm lover enjoying all the revivals around DC at the moment. The biggest flaw of this book is the uselessly colorful dialogue and narration. Nobody talks nor writes like that except other writers. Moreover, I believe Carey's art style is disappointingly inconsistent, but may not affect enjoyment at this stage. Lucius's portion is interesting and regrettably should have been a bigger part of the book sooner. Overall, this book has had its share of incomprehensible ups and downs, but this issue at least provides half of the answers. Read Full Review
