    Overall really enjoyed this issue and this is a great pay build up to the final issues of this arc. Lobdell’s Red Hood has been strong since the start and it continues that trend. Peter Woods art is also fantastic. I’m eagerly awaiting the next issue. Read Full Review

    This is a great story by Lobdell. He works so well with the artist Pete Woods. Woods is great. He makes everything very matter of fact in the artwork and it just is marvelous. He really has come into his own. This is a very good issue in a great series. It may fly under the radar but it shouldn't. It's one excellent series indeed. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jan 16, 2019

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #30 is a promising step back in the right direction. Jason's solo trip was never going to be as engaging as the trio, but Lobdell, Woods, and company have given a positive spin on this leg of the journey, and I'm anxious to see what happens next Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Jan 22, 2019

    A decent issue with a lot of setup for later stuff and a bit of wrap up of previous stuff. A lot of flow is lost in the middle ground but otherwise I thought the issue was pretty fun. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Jan 24, 2019

    Great issue! I feel like this built up a lot of action we're going to get soon. I would love to see Jason leading vigilantes in Gotham only for it to blow up in his face again! The art and color went together great. I'm looking forward to seeing Artemis and Bizarro again! Read Full Review

    Lastly, it looks like Red Hood found Solitary. Now, Jason had been looking for someone else in addition to this mad scientist, and it appears these two might be one and the same. Hopefully, we get that answer to start Red Hood: Outlaw #31. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Williamson Jan 16, 2019

    A good issue that, while lacking any majorly exciting sequences, helps prepare interesting plot threads and continues to make good use of Jason as a character. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jan 16, 2019

    Pete Woods artwork remains consistent, which in this case is not the hobgoblin of littleminds. Its a professional quality that enables the artist to render Gotham,middle America, remote Mexico or a decaying industrial environment with equalease. Some artists might complain for being able to draw aliens or spaceships,but thats not the job. The job is draw what the story calls for, and Woods hasthat firmly under control. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charlie Ashby Jan 16, 2019

    So, overall Red Hood: Outlaw #30has decent art, but a slow-paced story. However, that story is starting to really kick off and makes you want to come back for more. Read Full Review

    Overall, the issue was solid in and of itself but the hints at the future helped this issue leave me with a very good feeling. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 16, 2019

    While there are certainly a lot of reveals and callbacks in this issue that will get a lot of fans excited, it's the lack of substance that makes me feel like this issue is just padding itself out.  I continue to really enjoy the art and think it's probably the best it's been, but things in this issue just feel like they happen just for the sake of happening and it's thrown me off of this story a bit.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 16, 2019

    There are times that Scott Lobdell's long-running take on Jason Todd's various misadventures almost finds its footing and does something interesting with the character, but it always seems to pull back and throw him into some dumb plot that doesn't work. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Connor Christiansen Jan 17, 2019

    Pete Woods and Rex Lokus' art does a fantastic job crafting a genuine sense of suspense and tension, however the ensuing narrative spends more time teasing what is to come instead of focusing on the current story. Read Full Review
