"Dark Trinity" part three! Red Hood and Artemis set aside their differences when they discover the powerful weapon that Black Mask has been after: a fully-formed clone of Superman! But what should they do with it? They can't possibly let something this powerful fall into the hands of the nefarious Black Mask, and perhaps if they play their cards right, he could become a powerful ally...but is the risk worth the reward?

    Overall, this series is still going strong and I can't wait for the next issue. The truly great thing right now going forward is that we're definitely going to get some great action, but Lobdell is delivering on the writing and character developments so we will actually care about what happens to them.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 12, 2016

    Red Hood and the Outlaws continues being one of my favorite Rebirth titles and we haven't even gotten the full Outlaws up and running!  Scott Lobdell and Dexter Soy make this book so much fun to read, even when the story itself is far from lighthearted.  The only thing I'd change about this book is getting it twice a month!

    If you're looking for team building Red Hood and the Outlaws is turning out to be a master class in the subject. The story is slowly building towards team cohesion which increases anticipation and – if Lobdell can pull it off – one hell of a payoff. Read Full Review

    Lobdell and Soy took on an interesting new roster of outcasts and are giving readers reasons to care about each of them. If this pacing and character exploration continues, this book deserves to stand out among the other titles set in Gotham. Read Full Review

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #3 is a sum greater than its parts. I have a number of problems, some more significant than others, but when I reread it, I can only smile. Consistent excellence from its artists, and lots of heart and humor from its writer make this book one that I'm looking forward to each month. Read Full Review

    This is not a quick moving title, but the events are progressing at a reasonable pace considering the characters involved. It helps that Lobdell has a cast that's not involved in other pockets of the DCU and he can take the time to develop the team's origin. I'm enjoying this one a lot for its patience. There will be plenty of time for the action, but the team formation can only be done once. Better to get it done properly this time. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Mark Henely Nov 11, 2016

    I believe the artwork in a book like Red Hood and the Outlaws needs to be built around the main characters looking badass. That sounds shallow, but I do believe there is a contingency of fans who are subconsciously attracted to this book because the characters look cool. The character that really takes home the badass award this issue is Artemis. She looks angry and imposing in every panel she appears in. Most of the time, she is in a cool action pose. I don't think this should go uncommented on. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 18, 2016

    Although he apparently still has Black Mask's trust, Jason is forced to admit the gangster continues to be several steps ahead of him (just as he must admit empathy to Bizarro's current situation which will eventually compel the hero to act). Red Hood may not know why Black Mask needs Bizarro, but he can be sure nothing good can come from such a pairing. Worth a look. Read Full Review
