    Another solid issue from Tynion that gives us the return of the Arsenal we remember and have wanted to see for quite some time. What's not to like? Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Aug 22, 2013

    James Tynion IV and Julius Gopez are continuing to explore the new "team" dynamics within this book without forgetting to insert very-necessary humor. The first few issues of this new creative team's run were a little slow, but they've really come into their own and are starting to portray the three main characters (and the new cast of the inner circle of the League of Assassins) not only accurately and intelligently, but in a fun and unique manner not felt in any of the other DC books on the stands.

    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Aug 22, 2013

    The story seems to be picking up pace right now, though. The Untitled have gotten into the city and Jason seems to have agreed to lead the League. Why do I get the feeling its all a ruse? And flaming swords that materialize out of nowhere? Just another day in the life of Jason Todd, I guess. I think that's what makes this title so fun, you literally have no idea what's going to come next. Read Full Review

    Herotaku - Jamal Melancon Aug 21, 2013

    Despite the inconsistencies and gripes with the art, Tynion is bringing it on with a very engaging story. I think Jason's path in life having to do so much with the League of Assassins is just brillant. At the end of the issue he's officially become their leader and vows to help them win the battle with the Untitled currently racing towards them. Roy's jokes are funny, amnesiac Jason is starting to feel more natural, and Starfire's strength and conviction are more than significant. Read Full Review

    While I've enjoyed the battle that has been brewing between the League of Assassins and the Untitled, all while the Outlaws are caught in between, what's really holding this book back for me now is the art. Comics are a collaborative process, and work best when writing compliments the art and vis versa, but the art here is doing nothing for an otherwise solid story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 23, 2013

    I had a really hard time trying to understand the decision to make Red Hood and the Outlaws more about Arsenal and Kori, and barely have any Red Hood at all, but this issue gives me a little insight. Arsenal I find has the super power of badassery. Kori, and Jason are pretty useless in this issue, but this is more in line with the DC Presents: Arsenal, which gave me more respect for the character. Not really a fan of the continuing arc this book is doing, but I'm a loyal reader, and I'll keep reading, and waiting for Jason Todd to become the central badass again. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Aug 27, 2013

    There's the odd smile with cocky lines of dialogue and big guns, but at the end of the day, this series is in no way a landmark entry in the lives of Arsenal, Red Hood and Starfire. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Aug 21, 2013

    Nothing about this feels like a bat-title to me anymore. Jason no longer acts like Jason, there are too many mystical elements for me to fathom, and I think it has some of the ugliest art of any book I review. I'm dropping this title and I'll trade-wait from this point on. Read Full Review
