    Dexter Soy and Veronica Gandini return, and as always they bring their a-game with panels that enhance the story and pop off the page. There's several standout scenes but the truly gorgeous shot of Jason leaping off a skyscraper is a lesson in how to make every shade and detail stand out. It's breathtaking work that shows how much these artists not only know their game but love the characters they draw. Read Full Review

    Scott Lobdell's dialogue is sharp and precise while Dexter Soy's art (with color by Veronica Gandini) is pitch perfect, particularly in the issue's final panel. Read Full Review

    RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #20 picks up the series' pace as it engages with its characters and brings them closer to the underlying, central conflict of the series. Read Full Review

    For fans of the current comic run, this will either bring about stronger resolve among the super friends, or heartbreak. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Mar 14, 2018

    Dexter Soy is back in at the drawing board. He must be given credit for his consistent quality of work, issue after issue. Its refreshing to see someone remain on a title, in this age of rotating artists. Scott Lobdell deserves equal praise for his stories. The book is surprising fresh, without descending into rehashed clichs and over-used story-telling techniques. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Mar 14, 2018

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #20 initiates the endgame of Lobdell's tale of Bizarro's brainy rebirth. It might be the best issue of the series in some time, and I'm happy to have the end of "Smart Bizarro" in sight. Soy and Gandini produce another excellent collection of pages, and Taylor Esposito continues to makeRHATO a readable book with clean, well-place balloons, and interesting approaches to SFX. May this book"still the surprise hit ofRebirth almost two years in"receive the recognition it deserves, and may we see it on comic store racks for years to come. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Daniela Mendoza Mar 16, 2018

    From chatty henchmen to a spying Bizarro, the issue has plenty of twists and turns. Jason is forced to see his actions in a new light, and Artemis and Bizarro have a long awaited discussion. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 14, 2018

    While the art in this issue continues to be amazing, especially since we have Dexter Soy and Veronica Gandini back on art duties this issue, the story itself feels like it's overstayed its welcome and has become kind of boring as we continue to see the progression of Bizarro down his dark path, while our other two heroes don't have much to do.  Hopefully something comes of these side stories down the line, but right now, there just isn't much to this title anymore.

    AiPT! - Connor Christiansen Mar 14, 2018

    There's nothing horribly wrong nor right about Red Hood and the Outlaws #20. Its biggest flaw is that it fails to end a story arc that has been dragging this series down. Read Full Review

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    I may be in the minority on this one but I LOVE smart bizarro. I really do. Now, he appears smarter than the average super villain with some of the stuff he’s done... but smart bizarro is pretty cool.

    I also love him basically freaking out because he can solve SO many issues with Gotham, build SO much tech including quantum doorways, but he can’t stop himself from becoming old bizarro again. He’s preventing it pretty well but can’t stop it. I just feel for the guy. And I can’t go back to that bizarro speak... I hate reading it!

    Ok, it's not a bad issue. Some part are really interesting, but Lobdell didn't succeed to improve his writing.
    I'm a little tired about all the "Do we kill or not our best friend Bizarro ?" ....
    I hopped for something else, but that never come. I'not sure to take the May issue.

    Cover - The variant. Like it & surprisingly related ^^ 2/2
    Writing - It's ok ... But I feel like this team could have been more. 2/3
    Arts - I really Like Dexter Soy arts. 3/3
    Feeling - Mixed as always since the too long first arc. But I realize that if I give more than 0/2 I would be under my Vampironica Review & this title is less good. 0/2
