Red Hood and Arsenal are open for business! After working for the mysterious Tara Battleworth as on-staff outlaws, Roy and Jason have decided to branch out on their own as freelance problem solvers, investigators, and general butt-kicking specialists. But when the sinister corporate scourge of Underbelly rears its ugly head, can our heroes overcome pure evil and corruption made manifest?

    The artwork is gorgeous, the story is hilarious and the characters are genuinely likeable and relatable. If you havent picked up Red Hood/Arsenal yet, you are missing out on an extraordinary title that is a whole lot better than the current Bruce Wayne clone saga happening over in another book.

    Unfortunately, I did know it was only a matter of time before Jason would be face to face with the Jim Gordon Batman and I hope that Gordon does not monopolize the next issue too much as personally I am not a fan of this new direction of Batman. The issue had good action for a set up issue and an interesting new villain but I guess we had to see the new Batman if Jason and Roy were going to Gotham. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 12, 2015

    Red Hood/Arsenal continues to be a great title to just jump into when you want to have a little over the top fun and this issue in my opinion tops itself in delivering everything that we've come to love when it comes to these two characters.  Denis Medri's art improves from the first issue and it feels like we're starting to get something special from this creative team.  Hopefully that continues in the future and hopefully we get just one artist for this series....... jumping back and forth between artists isn't doing us or this title any favors.   Read Full Review

    All in all this comic is a fun read. Compared to other Red Hood stories Lobdell has written,this comic shows that he has made much improvements since then. The story is well written and the art is unique enough that readers will think of this art team when they think of this series. Read Full Review

    It's getting harder and harder to stick it out in this series. Though he's improved a little bit, Lobdell continues to deliver mediocre performance after mediocre performance. You would think someone who's been on and off writing duties involving these two characters for about four years now would be better-suited to write them, but you would be wrong. His partner-in-crime gives the same quality of art that made the debut issue hard to get through and the second issue such a breather. I don't know how long sheer love of these characters will get me through this series, although I did survive through 22 issues of Red Hood and the Outlaws under a not-so-great writer/artist team, so I guess we'll see.

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Aug 15, 2015

    The last thing that kept me pulled on this series was that it was at least kind of funny. That's gone. I'm almost certain Lobdell isn't doing this ironically, but there's a part of me that doesn't want to believe it. Read Full Review

    Simply FANTASTIC. Lobdell tackles pretty much every complaint about the vigilante-for-hire idea face on and gives a very satisfactory answer to them. His script is filled with action and humor from start to beginning and it ends with an amazing cliffhanger that it left me wishing next issue were out already But is Medri who steals the show. His art is magnificent, with some incredible panels filled to the brim with action and detail.

    Slightly better, but still a poor book. Plenty of unfunny jokes ("Red Arse dur hur hur"), and it feels like there's maybe only 8 pages of actual story stretched out giant panels.
