Red Hood is already globe-trotting in an effort to find the ancient assassins behind the slaughter of those who taught him some of his darkest skills... and if Roy and Kori are going to be of any help, well, they'll just have to tag along whether Jason wants them to or not!

    Red Hood and the Outlaws is shaping up to be a great and fun title. I had major questions concerning Jason Todd's past and we're getting some. That's what really sold on this issue. Seeing a glimpse into his past was what I wanted to see. As Jason moves forward with Roy and Starfire, we're also getting some insight into whether or not he's really a 'good' guy or the jerk we've sometimes seen lately. There aren't any shocking moments (*sarcasm*) with Starfire but something that happens with Jason here makes me question the conversation he had with Roy last issue. Rocafort's art is great even though sometimes characters look a little too pretty. I'll take pretty over ugly art any day of the week. I enjoy this issue more than last (which I also liked) and I have a feeling I'm going to like next issue even more. Read Full Review

    I was a bit confused given the rewriting which allows Roy Harper and Starfire to accompany the Red Hood on his journey (it's obvious he left for the quest alone at the end of the first issue). It's a litle confusing. However, those who were up in arms over the first issue's deception of Starfire should be a bit molified that she's been toned down in this issue. Worth a look.

    This issue gets a lot more done than last (which, to be honest, was probably intentional, what with last issue being not just a #1 but a relaunch #1 designed to shock and awe) and the central conceit of each character is a lot more enjoyable. Read Full Review

    As a team book, Red Hood and the Outlaws is heavily flawed. But between the attractive visuals and the emphasis on Jason Todd, this book is finding a place for itself nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Overall, "Red Hood and the Outlaws" #2 isn't bad, but we've also seen better. This issue feels like it's treading water, something that's admittedly better than the near-drowning of last month's installment. Next issue needs to settle into an actual stroke and start moving forward, though, or it's going to lose readers and interest at a rapid pace. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Oct 29, 2011

    The art is very pretty but is also overly-complex, to the point that it distracts the reader and prevents him from knowing what is going on. All those unnecessary lines look like an artist who is showing off instead of showing us what is happening. Read Full Review
