When tracking down an ancient evil that can hide in anyone, Red Hood and his Outlaws have to surreptitiously sniff out their enemy by similarly hiding in plain sight...Are you ready for the Outlaws to go undercover? The Untitled are unlike any foe they've ever faced, so if the Outlaws are going to win, they're going to need to improvise!

    To date I thinkRed Hood Outlaw might be my favourite comic book. There's such awesome plot and character writing from Scott Lobdell and it's always bought to life by the amazing artists that come and work on the comic. I'm really enjoying the team being back together and slowly finding their groove again. The plot seems like it is going somewhere interesting and I can't wait to see what happens to my disaster kids next. Read Full Review

    4 dye jobs out of 5PS: We need a Justice League Dark crossover with this book. John Constantine and Jason Todd snarking at each other for several issues while battling supernatural evil is the thing dreams are made of. PPS: Someone appreciates Jason Thick Thighs Save Lives Todds assets. Ahem. Read Full Review

    Lastly, could've done without the Ma Gunn stuff. Hopefully the pay off is worth it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Apr 5, 2020

    This issue was very okay. It didnt have quite the explosive action of previous issues, nor many great character moments, but it does succeed at least being a fun time filler. Paolo Pantalena only continues to get better at art and it was accentuated by Arif Priantos excellent colors. If you were a fan of Lobdells New 52 Red Hood and the Outlaws and hoped that stories of that ilk would continue, this is certainly the issue for you. Read Full Review

    A great return to form from Lobdells quality writing and much better art since last time. What more can I ask for? Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Carlos R. Mar 25, 2020

    Red Hood Outlaw #44 continues the mystical mission the Outlaws are on and while it makes for a fascinating plot, this issue falls short on its delivery. There are some great scenes between Bizarro and Jason, but not much else offered. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Apr 1, 2020

    Since this comic started at the beginning of Rebirth, I felt it would have worked better as a bi-monthly instead of a monthly. There is always too much going on. This month Red Hood Outlaw #44 has that same problem. It seems likely that all of these various ideas are going to merge into one cohesive story, but for now, it is a bit scattered and having to wait a month seem cruel. Read Full Review

    So far this arc of Red Hood is turning out to be interesting. While this issue still felt like much of it was was setting up the story, it had some really nice moments. Jason and Bizzaro getting to spend time together is something I've missed, and I also was happy to see some more of Jason's history. I'm still waiting to see how Essence will really play into all this but, generally, this issue of Red Hood was a fun read and enough to keep you entertained for a little while. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 25, 2020

    While this book feels like it wants to get back to basics, while also doing a rundown of Red Hood's greatest hits, this issue doesn't really do much to explain to new readers what the Untitled are or really anything about Jason Todd's or Essence's powers..... Yeah, recap can be boring, but the way this story is being told just seems like it wants to skip over the details so that it can do something new and exciting........ but the problem is, it's not all that exciting and I'm not the biggest fan of the art here.
