Welcome to the Underlife, Jason Todd-you probably won't survive! Banished from Gotham City and estranged from the Outlaws, Red Hood takes up residence in Appleton, a would-be American town that's a secret haven for the criminal operators. When RH gets his hands on a crowbar and starts handing out some bloody justice, it really stirs up the hornet's nest. And when a new Underlife member is introduced, Jason's gonna get stung by the trouble he caused.

    Last thing, both Woods's cover and Yasmine Putri's variant cover were SO SICK. Putri's has me wondering something, too. Any shot we could get some more crowbar? Haven't seen it since Red Hood: Outlaw 26. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Nov 19, 2018

    This was very enjoyable and a fun way to up where we left off. Art was awesome but Jason looks like a completely different person is all. This Red Hood vs. Appleton is like the fight scene in Kingsmen in the church! A modern day classic! I think a lot of people will be excited with the guest character and Red Hood can kick a lot of ass with them. Read Full Review

    The issue ends on a cliffhanger. Lobdell doesn't continue the Wingman storyline but I'm assuming he will next issue. The art by Woods is fitting and fun. This is a great book. It's a nice, off the cuff gem by a strong creative team! Read Full Review

    With the new/old ally, I feel that Jason is better equipped than ever for dealing with the "Underlife." As long as the dynamic artwork and quick action draws us in again. Read Full Review

    I like theturn this series has taken. In its former incarnation " Red Hood and theOutlaws " the outlaws in question were a thinly-veiled reference to theBig Three. I would have preferred to see him take up with some actualsuper-villains (Kinda like Batman is doing). Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 14, 2018

    While Red Hood: Outlaw continues to be entertaining, there just isn't too much going on in the book right now beyond our hero just beating the shit out of people and while I do love that........ it does get a little old after awhile.  The art looks great and there is some promise going forward, but right now I'm a little underwhelmed with the title.

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Nov 14, 2018

    I'm disappointed.Red Hood and the Outlaws has been one of my favorite books of the past few years, but this issue is a sudden departure. Hopefully things will return to form soon. Woods is an able storyteller, and Lobdell is more than capable of producing better work. It just didn't do it for me this time. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Nov 15, 2018

    I do hope the creative team makes this standalone arc(s) of just Red Hood flying solo something worth reading and different enough so that we will appreciate it more when the rest of outlaws are brought back (fingers crossed). Read Full Review

    AIPT - Connor Christiansen Nov 14, 2018

    Red Hood: Outlaw #28 is rife with well illustrated action sequences, but the action lacks any context and the plot doesn't barely moves forward making for an enjoyable but ultimately forgettable issue. Read Full Review

    Overall, the series continues to not really work. Read Full Review

  • 2.0 - Nicole Drum Nov 14, 2018

    With the previous issue being nearly flawless, it was unlikely this week would reach that same height, but Red Hood Outlaw #28 might as well be taking place in an alternative universe. Read Full Review

    -That whole subplot meta humor was alright, I guess. The only thing I liked about the issue.

    THE BAD:

    -I did not like the art. It felt like a cartoon, and not a good one either.

    -So apparently Scott Lobdell has forgotten how to write Red Hood. Alright, then.

    -So let me get this straight. Jason is in a town that's known for its food, when all of a sudden everybody starts attacking him for no reason, he gets knocked out and wakes up on a cross facing a Bizarro reject. Okay. Sigh. This is some of the most stupid storytelling I've ever seen.

    -So he's wearing his suit when he's suddenly become Red Hood:Jesus. Did one of the Appleton residents dress him up in his suit more

    Only a personal note, wish Lobdell put how long Jason has been living there. Seemed like a few days. Other than that, issue was good! We see Jason use his fighting skills against the whole town as well as outsmart the DC’s Hulk. I feel like by now Jason had to at least find something evil and wish we either saw him investigating or revealing something that he found. I really didn’t get “wowed” or anything like that at the cliffhanger. The art was very good even though still trying to get used to Jason’s new look because he doesn’t look anything like he used to, not the costume I’m talking about, his human body.

    This was completely average. Violence only gets you so far.
