We're living in strange times! Magic and metahumans are everywhere, but good and evil are easy to spot-right? The heroes of the world would never let anything happen to it...unless it happened already. Red Hood and the Outlaws are about to discover that the line between moral and immoral is very thin indeed.

    By the end of the book, a couple of familiar faces answer Ma Gunn's ad for help. And a villain appears ready to cause some trouble. For the most part, this is an exciting issue. Lobdell has done it again here. Williams is an excellent artist as well and I look forward to seeing more work from him. Well done. Read Full Review

    I'm in love with the writing style of Scott Lobdell, he really has a way of making the characters jump off the page. I want to jump into the page, so that I can be an Outlaw! I'm very interested to see how Jason, Artemis and Bizarro get back to their old “normal” team dynamic and how that will affect everyone else that had a side role in Red Hood Outlaw #43, because I'm hooked!

    This book continues to take place in its own strange continuity where any subplot from five years ago can be pulled up at random. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 26, 2020

    Scott Lobdell is throwing everything he can at you this issue and while some books may suffer from dealing with too much, the pacing here came off pretty well and dealt with all of its pieces in an interesting manner...... even if some came off a little jokey for my liking.  Overall though, the art is fun, the story is fun and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    There's promise, but between the recent issues and the way Red Hood: Outlaw #43 went, it's hard to get your hopes up " even though Lobdell gives you reasons to be excited. Read Full Review

    Despite its gorgeous coloring, this latest issue will leave fans feeling so-so thanks to its thin pacing, but any moment featuring Bizarro is nothing short of a treat. Read Full Review

    With Jason and the crew on their way to Qurac, Ma Gunn trying to find suitable teachers for Generation: Outlaw and someone deliberately unleashing Jason specific threats onto the whole world, things look to be heating up. Let's hope next issue's artwork matches the quality of the writing. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Feb 27, 2020

    Red Hood Outlaw #43 is the clear beginning of a new arc that focuses on the original dark Trinity, but it comes out stumbling. The covers are beautiful and the colors pop off the page, but I am just not sure where this is going. I am willing to give Lobdell a mulligan. This could really be the start of something amazing. He does like a good cliff hanger and these issues seem to be getting shorter and shorter, so he can only get in so much drama before he runs out of space. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - H. Ham Feb 27, 2020

    Ultimately this issue was garbage. They barely explain at all what the new plot is going to be, and most of this is going to be explained better in the next issue. So just skip this one. Read Full Review
