    With Artemis and Biz back in play; Jason trying to train and protect young metas in the way that Bruce never truly did for him and Lex"being Lex, all over everything the next phase of Red Hood: Outlaw should be very, very interesting indeed. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Aug 6, 2019

    Awesome issue! Great for an annual. I'm so happy to finally know the whereabouts of Bizarro and Artemis. I have missed them a lot. Bizarro got to do a lot without his super intelligence! I think the post-apocalyptic vibe made it super interesting and was super creative. Art was awesome and I loved their new look! Read Full Review

    But, things are going to get weird if Jason is still with Isabel when Artemis gets back. (Drama!) Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Aug 1, 2019

    The only thing that I didn't quite understand is why we needed the prologue here. It feels rather tacked on and awkward. That being said, besides that, this is a strong annual and a very enjoyable and exciting story here. Read Full Review

    Though a bit extended at 40 pages, this annual blows right by at an adrenaline-pumping pace. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Chino DT Aug 1, 2019

    This strange comic is very fascinating and is one of those dystopian adventures that make you want and know more about the events that led the world to this situation, I really want to know more about that Hero Day and I think this dystopian Wasteland deserves more epic stories like this issue, I wouldn't imagine that Bizarro and Artemis would make a good team, this comic is really a job well done.

    I expect someday DC will explore what transpired on this temporary Earth to whichBizarro and Artemis were transported. Is this trip really necessary? Not really. But perhaps in the right hands, it will provide an entertaining diversion when the creative well of Red Hood solo stories runs dry. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 31, 2019

    While we didn't get as an engaging of a story as I would have liked for Bizarro and Artemis' time away, it was still nice to see them interacting and knowing that they'll eventually make their way back to this book. The art was decent here and for the stories that this annual sets up going forward, I can't wait to see what we get out of this series in the next couple of months. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Aug 1, 2019

    Red Hood finally looks as though it will return to it's better days by bringing Artemis and Bizarro back into the fold. While that excites me, this story is just ok. Lobdell starts the book off strong, but after taking time to establish the story, he's forced to rocket through the rest of the narrative, leaving out most of the set-up. It's entertaining, but the substance is lacking. In the end, it's just a decently weird story. Forgettable? Perhaps, but at least it wasn't boring or bad. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charlie Ashby Jul 31, 2019

    It's been a rough time for the Bat-Kids in the DC universe, but it looks at though Jason's life may be back on track soon if his friends manage to find their way back. The core of these characters and their outsider nature works so well for this book. Hopefully, the team will be reunited and will continue adventures for years to come. If you're not an avid reader of Red Hood and the Outlaws, this annual may not be the best jumping-on point for new readers " but if you are? It's a great little backstory. Read Full Review

    The guest art by Adam Pollina is serviceable, but lacks the smoothness of the regular artist and some of the fight scenes are unclear. There's a few interesting ideas here, but ultimately " Forget it, Jake, it's Lobdelltown. Read Full Review
