Bizarro is getting... worse. Worser? Worsest. The backward Superman's diminishing cognitive state is causing problems for the rest of the Outlaws. Complicating things is the Red Hood's vendetta against the Penguin-can the Outlaws stop Jason Todd from crossing a line he can't return from?

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jul 11, 2018

    Dexter Soy remains one of my favorite artists in comics. His work is so underrated, it's criminal. He perfectly illustrates Lobdell's story. They are only getting better as a creative team. And this book is only getting better. This is one of the more exciting books on stands each month. Well done. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Jul 14, 2018

    Wow! That was intense, Red Hood actually murdered The Penguin. This is a big move for Rebirth, will we be seeing this villain again? This is going to create a ton of conflict between Batman and Red Hood, which may result in Batman trying to arrest him. This is going to be as painful as when Jason came back from the grave. As always, the art is great and detailed, Soy and Borges made a good combination. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves Jul 12, 2018

    The latest chapter in the history of Jason Todd as the Red Hood is coming to an end, and the creative team that has been guiding the Outlaws since the beginning of Rebirth is certainly closing it with a bang. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Justin Swenson Jul 11, 2018

    This issue captures Bizarro's fall from grace wonderfully. As Artemis deals with the self-destruct sequence of their ultra-hidden base, and as Jason Todd shoots Oswald Cobblepot in the head, Bizarro mindlessly watches super-hero cartoons in a stupor. A little past mid-issue, Bizarro has a touching moment with pup pup (his imaginary Superman plushie-doll). "I did my best, pup pup," tears rolling down Bizarro's face and me trying to hold back the feels. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Peter Saenz Jul 15, 2018

    Bizarro is now officially back to his original mind. This really isn't something that bothers Red Hood or Artemis, as they love the chalk skinned guy no matter what type of mind he has. It does, however, bother the thousands of Gothamites who live and work in the section of the city the Outlaws fortress is falling down upon. What happened to Artemis and Bizarro you ask, and how will they stop the fortress from destroying the city? I guess we'll just have to wait until next issue to find out. Read Full Review

    This book will never get the respect it deserves, but Red Hood and the Outlaws #24 is the best book DC has published in a few weeks. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 13, 2018

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #24 is a very affecting comic, with a tragic story transpiring for Jason, Bizarro, and Artemis. The story clicks, the art is good, and I found myself genuinely saddened by the tale. This one earns a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 11, 2018

    Red Hood and the Outlaws is coming out swinging with this issue and while the Smarty-Pants Bizarro just seems to have gone away without much fanfare, what we get instead is some next level, game changing stories that I can't wait to read.   Read Full Review

    This was another great story by Scott Lordell in one of the most underrated books in the current DC library. Let's hope this book continues to be this strong in this arc and beyond. Read Full Review

    If you thought the last issue of Red Hood and the Outlaws was emotionally devastating, then this week's issue will leave you wondering if you're even reading the same series. Read Full Review

    Its apotentially powerful issue. I say potentially because Im too jaded to acceptwhat Ive read at face value. Somewhere there may be misdirection and misrepresentation,but I suspect the truth will have to wait for next issue. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Jul 12, 2018

    Issue 23 was a somber look into an important character's past. We learned a lot about Jason. Here, we see him act on it in truly shocking ways. Ways that warrant an intervention from someone very important. It makes reading issue 25 all the more exciting. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 12, 2018

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #24 is the final chapter of a long story that set up a smarter Bizarro and a Jason Todd who seemed to be going straight, but both of those plots come to a tragic end here. Unfortunately, at least in one case, it feels like a massive waste of potential and brings up flashbacks to another, far worse recent DC Comic. Read Full Review

    Big 'death' scene. Big last page cameo. Big ship on self-destruct. Big props for this ish.

    Did THAT really happen? Pretty clear that Lobdell is bringing all the plots of the first 24 issues to a head, and he's doing it as well as ever.

    The beginning of this issue gives the readers a preview of what the Outlaws can become if they reach their full potential. I never knew how much I needed this lineup until now. It's an amazing scene and something I hope comes to fruition one day.

    We finally learn the fate of Bizarro and as expected it was emotional. Lobdell has done a great job developing Bizarro's character regardless if he is a super genius or Superman's opposite. Because of this, I know Bizarro will continue being a dynamic character in this series so I am fine with the outcome.

    On to Red Hood. Jason played up the theatrics spectacularly in this issue. Everything he did had a layer of EXTRA to it. I am a huge Red Hood fan but I can admit he l more

    An excellent issue that is dark and really, really has an excellent story for Red Hood. I hated the art and could have cared less about the writing for the Bizarro/Artemis but thankfully that story was minimal. But it still is a bummer because it still makes me have to dock a few points, despite how much I loved the art and writing for Red Hood's story. It captures the theme and mood of the story and takes the series in a new direction I can't wait to see. The issue also has an excellent cliffhanger, which makes you really want to read the next issue. All in all an (almost) great issue. Highly recommended!

    Welcome back anti-hero. It’s been too long. I like Jason Todd. I like his story. Someone who has gone through what he has would probably have no compunctions with killing. I hope he kills a lot of bad guys. Maybe even some bigger names. Artemis and he should be able to do some real damage.
