It's the shocking return of Artemis and Bizarro! But when did these old friends become foes? Red Hood's former Outlaws are ready to kill Jason Todd, and the kids of Generation Outlaw might be the only ones who can stand in their way! Sure, they're the super-villains of tomorrow, but for today they're just kids trying to learn how to survive in this crazy world. Will their final lesson be not to trust Jason Todd, or will they ultimately prove to be the end of his old teammates? It's all been leading to this showdown between the Outlaws and the New Outlaws!

    David Messina takes over artwork duties this issue and there's a fluidity to his work that I really like. Everything is soft yet powerful, whether it's the eyes of a panicking Cloud 9 or the battle between G:O and The Outlaws before everyone is brought back to their senses, each panel is gorgeous and helps tell the story.

    I can't wait to see how our next Generation of Outlaws handles life now. Read Full Review

    The issue feels a little bit short, even though it is very good. Lobdell really has a love for these characters and it shows on every page. The art is pretty cool in this issue as well. Read Full Review

    I feel like Lobdell, despite some plotting missteps in this book, has managed to develop a strong characterization for Jason and the title is looking up now that the full gang is back together. For all his protests, Jason is his father's son. Read Full Review

    The story is decent. Its a fine conclusion to the Generation Outlaw story arc. I just wish we could have gotten something a lot better. Read Full Review

    I honestly dont know that Ill continue this series. Maybe only to review it until it hopefully ends at Issue #50, but this was lame. If not for Messina and Lokus art, this book would rate far lower than it already is. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Jan 1, 2020

    The best thing about this issue is we should be done with the kinds and onto Red Hood and the Outlaws again. They have a lot to discuss and I, for one, can't wait for Jason and Artemis to talk about their kiss from Red Hood and the Outlaws #25. Read Full Review

    The exposition is thick to wade through but has enough payoff to make its density well worth it. Read Full Review

    I am not thrilled with that final panel. It makes me feel as though my worst fears are going to be realized and that Red Hood and the Outlaws are going to be a new Justice League Dark. In general, huge group comics are hard to read. The three headed monster that was the Red Hood and the Outlaws was perfect as it was. I will be back next month with my fingers and toes crossed.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 1, 2020

    While it's great that Artemis and Bizarro are back now, nothing about that actually matters this issue, while the story instead becomes about a character that none of us really know, even though the editor's notes keep suggesting a story was previously there.  I love the art here, but the story was just a mess and I can only hope that things can pick up now that Jason has his two besties back, but I won't hold my breath.  Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jan 1, 2020

    This issue falls into the trouble the arc has had of trying to do too much with little direction. Lobdell rushes through solving problems before readers understand why they're problems, and tries to show off his cast of characters, but ends up leaving things feeling chaotic and unfocused. Instead of trying to find a balance between character work and action, this issue leans too heavily into action and takes shortcuts by introducing new powers, and character motivations that have had little set up or explanation prior.
