"Bizarro Reborn" part three! They may only use the title "Outlaws" as cover for Red Hood's clandestine war on crime-but their status as Gotham City's most wanted has landed them in the prison yard at Belle Reve Penitentiary! But are they locked in with the Suicide Squad-or is the Suicide Squad locked in with the Outlaws? Harley Quinn, Killer Croc and Deadshot go out of the way to make Red Hood, Artemis and Bizarro feel right at home in this maximum-security prison...while Amanda Waller rustles up three new brain bombs!

    I'm back on board with this issue. It was well written, there was a nice bit of humor, solid story, and tremendous art. Scott Lobdell is truly a great writer and Soy and Gandini are a magnificent team on the artwork. A big thumbs up to the team for this issue. Include it in your weekly pull. Read Full Review

    Brief tangent again referring to the Weird Science podcast, as those lads said if Red Hood and the Outlaws sales struggled or dipped low enough to be cancelled they should be absorbed as characters into the Suicide Squad, well I will go a step further and say regardless of sales figures I think they should be part of Suicide Squad as they fit so well and they can replace some members of the squad that are probably only in the comic thanks to the movie. In looking at you El Diablo and Enchantress. Jasons team could replace you in the comic and then go on freelance missions in the Red Hood title. But I digress, based on fact the two teams are both outcasts and I can see story lines revolving around Jason working with his killer's ex squeeze. Read Full Review

    A fun ride! It's another “versus” issue. If you're looking into starting this series, this wouldn't be a bad adventure to start off with. It's witty, cute, and filled with action. Welcoming to all ages! By the way, I am loving how DC did the thing: Read Full Review

    Overall this was a good issue but I still wonder where all this is going. Why all the guest stars lately? Whats it leading to? Most importantly, who is the man Bizarro is so desperate to keep Jason safe from?Hopefully well find out soon. Read Full Review

    Regardless, the storyline is fine and agreeable, but some tweaking of dialogue and character seems to be in order. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Nov 10, 2017

    #SquadGoals? As a title? A little silly, but okay. I expected more interactions between these antiheroes (emphasis on anti). I have a ton of faith to see what this opens up to however. Art by Soy is killer as always. Read Full Review

    What things end up like for their future once everything is out in the open, as a fan, makes me eager to learn more. That said, I'm still a bit worried that what that new dynamic will be will change the chemistry between the team members, and things may not be the same. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Nov 9, 2017

    Despite the great artwork and good dialogue, the story itself just isn't very gripping and often confusing in its scope. I feel like we have strayed away from the core point to the arc which was Bizarro attaining a genius level intellect. Even last issue showed him broadcasting to Gotham that he and the Outlaws would clean up Gotham, but now they are teaming up with Task Force X to take down a subterranean villain who could destroy the world. It just feels like the focus should be more on the fact that Bizarro literally died and is now back with an enhanced intelligence thanks to Luthor. Hopefully, the story is circling back to this point soon. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 8, 2017

    While the progression of this story doesn't make a whole lot of sense, the art in this issue is great and the adventure our Outlaws are going on seems pretty cool......... I just wish we would have had a way to get there that didn't seem like it was thought of last second.   Read Full Review
