    I am very happy, and I could not praise this issue any more (well I could, but we'd be here for a while). I loved all of it, I cannot wait for more. I've only read part one and I already have this massive, goofy grin on my face, just thinking about getting to read the next issue. Lobdell's work is great and I'm very excited to see where he's going with this new story arc. Read Full Review

    This is some great stuff. The script takes all sorts of turns in these twenty two pages and it's awesome. I have no idea where we might be going next! The art is fantastic as well. Segovia is a perfect fit for this book. I'm excited at where this is going. This is some great stuff indeed. Read Full Review

    Lastly, Stephen Segovia took over the penciling this issue. He got rid of Jason's buzz cut, or whatever Pete Woods had given him before " a smart move. Definitely not the looks of a "businessman." Jason also looks less bulky. We'll see if that remains the case if suits up as Red Hood under Segovia's watch. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Mar 20, 2019

    A really great issue! I loved Segoiva did really great in the art, he captures Jason's ideal look. I feel like the past issues, even though the art was awesome, Jason looked NOTHING like himself, yes of course he got a buzz cut but his facial features were totally different. Color popped as well! This opens up potentially more drama with Batman which in the future I hope resolves, but for now it's really interesting to see. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Mar 14, 2019

    Overall, I like where this arc is headed and with the cliffhanger of Penguin in Jasons own personal cell. I think there will be a great mix of tension and excitement as Jason turns the Penguins empire legitimate by destroying it. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 13, 2019

    Lobdell has some fun playing up the premise of Red Hood as a casino owner. It's easy to see how much trouble this is going to bring about. As is usual with Jason, this probably won't be a long term gig, but it'll be fun while it lasts. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Mar 13, 2019

    Red Hood: Outlaw #32 feels like a fresh start for this series. It doesn't abandon what Lobdell has built these past few years; but, in leaving the distractions of the past few months behind, it allows the central drama"both in this run and in Jason Todd's character overall"to come back into the forefront. Segovia is an able partner, particularly with Lokus's quality color work, and this book once again feels like a bargain in quality when compared to other options on the rack. Read Full Review

    RED HOOD: OUTLAW #32 could prove to be the start of the redemption of Jason Todd, or of his damnation. Only Lobdell knows for sure. Read Full Review

    Red Hood is moving on up in the world and heading back to Gotham City, which is pretty damn exciting, but even for this setup issue that lets you know all about it...... I feel like too much was left out to make it feel believable.  I love the art in this issue and I love the use of characters, I just hope that the story picks up from here on out because this setup feels like it could lead to something exciting.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Mar 13, 2019

    I believe its okay to take a break once in a while, and this issue could have been suchby being all about Jason. Other than a brief flashback scene which served no purpose to me, Red Hood was nowhere to be seen. I can appreciate the title is Red Hood, Outlaw, not Jason Todd, Outlaw, but for all the times we see him in mask and costume for the entire issue, I'm not opposed to not seeing him once in a while.

    The Brazen Bull - Doug Bornhoeft Mar 13, 2019

    Red Hood and the Outlaws (2016-) #32 is a positive move forward in Todd's arc but the issue could have been improved with a less redundant summary early on in the story. Read Full Review

    Overall this issue does what it needs to do but doesn't live up to the groundwork that's come before. Read Full Review

    Scott Lobdell's comics often feel like they take place in a parallel version of the DCU where nothing makes sense, and that's definitely the case with this bizarre issue. Read Full Review
