Leave it to Red Hood to get Lex Luthor's strangest offer of all: to train the next generation of super-villains! Hand-picked for their incredible talents, not to mention their potential to spread villainy and doom across the globe. As the only super-villain in the world to have trained under Batman himself, Red Hood is the ideal instructor. But has Jason Todd fallen so far that he'd take on the task of forging tomorrow's Legion of Doom or Crime Syndicate-or is he trying to work from within to undermine Lex's villainous machinations? Even if Red Hood's heart is in the right place, he still has to butt heads with his powerful and dangerous new more

    Kenneth Rocafort returns to do the art this issue and honestly, as much as I love Dexter Soy & Veronica Gandini and Pete Woods' respective runs on this comic, I genuinely adore Rocafort's work. His run on Wonder Woman is still some of my favorite artwork ever and that stands true now. I don't know how long we'll have him on the book but I'll take it for as long as I can get it.

    It's great to see Rocafort drawing this book. Anytime that he is an artist on a book, it's immediately worth reading. This is no different. His art really carries this story very well. This is a nice first issue in a new direction. I can't wait to see where they take us next. Read Full Review

    Red Hood Outlaw #37: Year Of The Villain Dark Gifts Tie-In will come in two covers; the Cover A was drawn by Regular Kenneth Rocafort Cover; Cover B was drawn by Variant Philip Tan Cover. A word of advice" even though Red Hood's print run is usually around 21,000 as of the writing of this review #37 is already sold out on-line at several comic shops, so don't expect that this will be available for Saturday Warrior if you haven't already reserved one.

    Yet again Lobdell has blown my mind out of the water and I get so much entertainment out of this series. The plot line for this new arc is interesting and I'm really looking forward to seeing where this is going. (I'm still holding out for Jason to get his own Teen Team). Lobdell seems to enjoy leaving everything on a cliffhanger, so we shall have to wait until next time to see what happens to Red Hood and his merry band of misfits. Read Full Review

    If you have not picked up a Red Hood: Outlaw book before, this is the perfect time to start. The old team is trying to get home, the new team looks to be a hot mess but what else would you expect from a band of outlaws? Plus, there are jokes, lots of action and a cliffhanger ending.

    This was a good introduction to a new arc and a new set of characters. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 28, 2019

    While I love the idea of this new status quo for Jason Todd, the execution for this introduction issue left a lot to be desired in my mind. Beyond the new characters being weird, angsty teenagers, who don't get along with each other, I don't know much about what's happening here and sadly, I wasn't really a fan of the art either. That's just me though, I know there's a lot of K. Roc fans out there who will probably eat this up. Just not enough of anything to get me really invested in these new characters, but I was excited by the cliffhanger........ and I'm probably the only one. Read Full Review

    Last thing regarding Red Hood: Outlaw #37: the variant cover is sick. There have been some outstanding Red Hood variant covers " maybe the most consistent good-or-better variants out there " and I definitely don't mention them enough. Excellent job by Philip Tan, Marc Deering and Jay David Ramos with this one. Read Full Review

    Lobdell likes to dig deep into his runs to find characters, but I can safely say I never expected to see the lead character from Doomed again until the end of this issue. Lobdell's certainly ambitious, but unfortunately the ambition fails to come together into a compelling read. Read Full Review
