    Another thing that makes this book so amazing is the artwork. As always Dexter Soy and Veronica Gandini bring the ruckus but there is a simply gorgeous scene with our three leads that will stay with you long after you put the book down. The layout of each frame, the shading and facial expressions and the physicality of each character lends weight to the words being said that takes excellent dialogue and elevates it to something beautiful.

    For readers who haven't yet decided on the series, issue #4 is a good point to jump back in. For those that have stuck around, the story is finally starting to payoff. Either way, Lobdell and Soy have set up an adventure worth following. Read Full Review

    Character work is on point as Red Hood's heroic goodness rears its head. The team is coming together, a major development between Red Hood and Black Mask culminates, and the art is gorgeous. Read Full Review

    I really like this book. I am not ashamed to admit it. Jason was never my favorite Robin. He and Damian are tied for last place, but as Red Hood, he is just perfect. He brings the issues of the Bat world to life. It is fitting that this book and Mother Panic come out the same week. Hopefully, those two books will smash into each other as she and Jason are kindred spirits. Read Full Review

    Red Hood and the Outlaws #4 continues the series’ trend of delivering a story filled with great character interaction, great character building and beautiful art. The greatest accomplishment of this book month after month is how Jason is written as a character that anyone can emotionally resonate with. If you’re looking for a feel-good story with some cool action sequences too, make sure to check out this book! Read Full Review

    I'll just go ahead and say it: I really, really like this book. I can find flaws, but my experience of reading each month is mostly happiness. Kudos to Lobdell, Soy, Gandini, and Esposito for making me a believer, and for making Red Hood and the Outlaws #4 read even better and look even better than it has before. Read Full Review

    It looks like in Red Hood and the Outlaws #5 we'll finally see the birth of the new Outlaws as a team. That is if Red Hood and Artemis can survive long enough to break Black Mask's control over Bizarro. I'm guessing they will.) Worth a look. Read Full Review

    It was bound to happen eventually and this month we get a down issue of Red Hood and the Outlaws.  Scott Lobdell gives the reader some big Black mask developments, but that doesn't completely shake the feeling that this first arc is starting to drag a bit.  I want the Dark Trinity together and I want it now!  Read Full Review

    With the cliffhanger here of Bizarro being controlled by Black Mask's virus, I can't wait for the next issue, but I'm sure we will only get one issue of a controlled Bizarro since this Dark Trinity needs to really start to come together. We have seen a few brief moments of them together, but Artemis felt removed so I am looking forward to seeing them all out in the open and teaming up. Read Full Review
