The Chamber of All has been excavated by the Untitled in Qurac, which means it’s up to Red Hood, Artemis, Bizarro and Essence to prevent an unspeakable horror from wiping out all of humanity once and for all. Sounds like a tall order for the Outlaws? Don’t worry, they get help from the most unexpected (and misunderstood) super-team of all time: Red Hood and the Outlaws! All this, plus Ma Gunn learns the tragic reason Monsieur Mallah and the Brain want to teach the students of Generation Outlaw.

    I really loved this issue. This is all headed towards a fine conclusion for Lobdell's lengthy run. Read Full Review

    While Im still not a fan of Pantalenas faces (seriously why do ALL THE WOMEN LOOK ALIKE???), the overall feel of the book is very dynamic, with each scene moving wonderfully and the Chamber of All rendered beautifully. Honestly, if Pantalena ever figures out that women of different ethnicities and races have different noses, skin color and mouths this book would get a Five out of Five rating every week. Unfortunately, he hasnt so here we are. Read Full Review

    All in all, a decent issue " which about as good as we can hope for from Lobdell right now. Read Full Review

    There are at least two really cool moments in this book that may make a die-hard Red Hood and the Outlaws fan squeal and while I sort of let out a half squeal myself, that doesn't make up for the rest of the book that while looks alright, doesn't do enough in the story department to make this issue continuously entertaining, while also taking the wind out of the big bad of this arc's sails.

    If you're a fan of anyone in this roster of characters (including a few unexpected faces), this issue is probably worth checking out, but everyone else might just think it's underwhelming. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jul 28, 2020

    The issue as a whole is in desperate need of some tension. Everything comes far too easy for the Outlaws despite this situation supposedly being one where the fate of the world is at stake. Almost nowhere in the issue do I feel like the characters are in real danger, and the few moments I do are either unearned or quickly resolved. While the story does progress, the events are sometimes lack clarity. There are cool moments and scenes, but without tension to strengthen those scenes the issue generally falls flat.
