    This one proved that this team knows what they're doing, even if the characters don't. It's safe to say that Red Hood and the Outlaws is not only in safe hands, but that it's not going anywhere. So do me a favor and if you dropped the book after Scott Lobdell left, go ahead and pick up this issue. Trust me. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    If you miss the depth that the DCU lost after Flashpoint, Red Hood and the Outlaws is still your best bet. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 30, 2013

    A lot of exposition in this story, but for the most part it was all pretty fun. The story was dragged down by Starfire and Essence, which sadly was the majority of the book. Really I just want this story line to end because I'm tired of reading The Outlaws. I want Red Hood back. Until that happens I think this title is going to suffer. Read Full Review

    This issue makes some clever ties between old DC lore and new, along with establishing a baseline of this New 52 league of assassins. While the connections made are all well and good, in doing so, the issue lacks any serious action or excitement that would propel it above being an okay issue. Read Full Review

    Though honestly, it does kind of look like Roy just time traveled here from the '90s with that amount of gear on him. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Jul 24, 2013

    Though some of the dialogue felt a bit forced, it was hardly the biggest problem plaguing the issue. The series is buckling under the weight of its own increasingly complex mythology that's becoming more and more removed from the core of these three characters' stories. Visually, the book is slightly less inconsistent than it has been, with artist Julius Gopez stepping up his game. Hopefully, Tynion and company will move past the cumbersome mythos that's been holding this title back, because we see promise there, even if they haven't quite reached it yet. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Jul 24, 2013

    The art looks much better now that there's an inker on the team but the story itself is exposition heavy and kind of boring. It sets up a lot of interesting things to come in future issues and even goes into Ra's Al Ghul's past somewhat, but getting through all that exposition was a bit of a slog and I'm getting weary of all the magic elements in this series. If you enjoy more magical/fantastical elements in your comics then you'll definitely enjoy this series more than I do, but I'm quickly losing interest and often feel like I'm giving it a pass just because I like Tynion's Talon series so much.
