    What else can I say? This is one of the best Rebirth series! This issue did such a good job at showing how smart Bizarro really is even if he's a little aggressive at times. But of course Red Hood was the same way so why can't Bizarro learn? And Colak is the perfect artist for this series. He captures the characters perfectly and that last scene?! B-E-AUTIFUL!

    This wonderful issue remains true to who Todd is while adding a new layer that many readers never considered. As a result, Jason Todd and the reader are left in a better place. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 8, 2017

    This a quick and awesome read that solidifies this book as one of my favorites of Rebirth.  Artemis makes an appearance, but this issue is all about Jason and Bizarro.  The story is surprisingly touching and while I prefer Dexter Soy's art on this book, Mirko Colak does a decent job.  I can't recommend this book enough.

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Feb 8, 2017

    This book is great. I like the direction Lobdell has taken. I like that Jason compares himself to both Bruce and Bizarro. He has grown up so much in the Rebirth era while losing 10 years of his life. Complexity is always good. Complexity is probably an understatement.One must be a bit off one's rocker to strap guns on, throw on a hood and go kill people in the name of justice. This is a great book. It is only issue #7. Get on board. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Feb 9, 2017

    Although the artwork leaves much to be desired (putting it nicely), I was still drawn into this issue with Lobdell's writing and character development. The relationship between Bizarro and Jason is a fascinating one that I can't wait to see what will happen in the future. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Feb 8, 2017

    Read this book at least twice. If you're like me, you may find that it changes (dramatically) for the better. While the characteristic zing of Artemis takes a break, the touching story of Jason and Bizarro goes gorgeously full-frame, daring you not to be moved. If you're still sitting on the sidelines waiting for Scott Lobdell to slip up, do yourself a favor and stop it. Lobdell and his team of artists have earned your attention, and they aren't taking it for granted. Red Hood and the Outlaws #7 may be the best installment yet. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Mar 8, 2017

    A problem I thought I was going to have with the series was its apparent focus on Red Hood and Bizarro, with their relationship really forming the emotional spine of the book up until this point. Bizarro doesn't even show up in this issue, as Lobdell wisely develops the relationship and chemistry between Jason and Artemis. Despite the contrivances with the nature of their conversation, I found myself enjoying their banter and dialogue, since they haven't had a moment of peace together since they first met.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Wesley Messer Feb 8, 2017

    It's a strange journey and a bit messy, yet surprisingly Red Hood and The Outlaws isn't half bad.It's not a perfect comic by any means, but it has a lot of heart and I appreciate that. There's enough here that I'm game to give the next issue a shot. Red Hood and The Outlaws works better for me now than it did in the New 52 incarnation that's for sure. I guess as I said in the title, Bizarro as always is number one in my heart. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Feb 11, 2017

    Make no mistake, this is a comic about Red Hood first and the Outlaws second, but given the series title that's to be expected. Red Hood And The Outlawshas been like a reliable old Ford pickup; solid and reliable, but unlikely to set the land-speed record. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Mark Henely Feb 8, 2017

    Red Hood has to decide what kind of man he is going to be. Is he the kind of man who lets Bizarro run wild? Is he the type of man who kills Bizarro right now for the threat he might become? Or is he a third option? An option that looks a lot like how Batman lives his life. Is he a man who is ready to do what needs to be done, even if it means killing a man, but will do everything in his power to make sure that he never has to cross that line? Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 16, 2017

    Eventually taking the more difficult road of accepting the role as Bizarro‘s guardian (in much the same way Batman chose to do for Jason), Red Hood cements the membership of the new Outlaws but also signs-up for hard days ahead keeping Biazarro in check. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - belleburr Feb 8, 2017

    Unfortunately the artwork doesn't hold up. Mirko Colak, filling in for Dexter Soy, isn't quite up to the challenge. The detail I've come to expect in a RHATO book just isn't there. The lines aren't as clean, the backgrounds aren't as crisp and the character work isn't consistent. Read Full Review
