    The Outlaws in space continues. Seeing Jason and Roy partake in Starfire's adventures isn't something I expected to happen when this series first started. Seeing it play out has been fun and you have to love the banter and relationship between the three. We finally have a new artist since Rocafort will be moving on to SUPERMAN. I almost didn't notice it because Blond continued to do the colors and I was focusing on the story. There were some minor issues but the book appears to be in safe hands. The story is getting interrupted by next month's zero issue but stuff like this has happened in other titles before. It'll just serve to build up the suspense. RED HOOD is continuing to be a fun ride in a comic book form. Read Full Review

    In terms of character dynamics, what doesn't quite work in this issue are the two romantic pairings. Jason's current fling still feels like a random and unnecessary inclusion even after several issues. And while I'm warming to the Starfire/Arsenal romance somewhat, I don't buy it when Lobdell writes of Starfire as being fundamentally changed by her newfound love. The relationship simply hasn't been developed or explored enough yet. And maybe that's indicative of the central remaining flaw with the series. It's a solid book as far as Red Hood and Starfire are concerned, but less so regarding Arsenal. That's something to focus on for Year 2. Read Full Review

    The logic of Arsenal getting himself captured, tortured, and telling his captors all about his days in space not withstanding, the story utilizes the comic's offbeat sense of humor well. I'm pretty sure I'm going to hate whatever the hell the “Thirteen” is which is ominously mentioned at one point, but, at least the comic has gotten back on its feet after a horrible mis-step last month. I'm also happy to see Timothy Green II has taken over as artist for the title (even if some of the art here looks a little rushed). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    So, Red Hood and the Outlaws has reached its twelfth issue, giving us a full year of the series. It was one of the legitimately new titles of the New 52, and I have to say it is a good addition to DC's lineup. Grouping together Red Hood, Arsenal and Starfire as a pseudo-team bonded by their own damaged souls is a really great concept, and Lobdell has shown that several times. However, I also think it would be best for Red Hood and the Outlaws to get a new creative team. It's strange how Lobdell seems to have a fairly good handle on how well the characters work together yet the stories he's interested in telling are all wrong for them. Read Full Review

    I don't know... every book has it's low points I guess? If anything, there were a couple of nice character moments between Roy and the other two on separate occasions, that I've come to expect and like from this book. Read Full Review
