    The quality of this RHATO issue is more or less the same as the others. I'd say I went easy on the art this time, but I'm really getting annoyed with it. The writing is awesome, on the other hand. Tynion is tying plot lines together beautifully, and I can't wait for the real finale of the arc. Read Full Review

    This was another strong issue from Tynion, who once again proves that he's one of the most competent rookie writers we've seen in years. He's managing to keep Outlaws fun every single month, which I personally feel is an important element of the book. He also has a strong grip on the characters as well, which the title benefits from even more. Aside from the art woes, another strong read. Read Full Review

    The issue ends in such a way that everything that came before it is now clear. Admittedly the current arc was a little slow and a little scattered but now everything is starting to make sense. Moving forward this arc looks like it will really pick up and deliver a great ending. If you've been reading everything up until now this issue makes everything worth it with the promise of a satisfying conclusion. Be patient Outlaws fans, this story isn't over yet and you'll have to wait until Jason Todd's "Zero Year" tie-in finishes before we get to conclude the current arc. Read Full Review

    The introduction of Ra's into this book, which was expected if you read the solicits, really helps give the recent events something to sort of grasp on to. It's a nice hook, and could lead to some interesting dealings in future issues. Despite all that, the art and Roy crying (literally) and being a total downer all the time, does just that for the issue as a whole, and brings it down. For every enjoyable bit this issue presents, there's a scene or Roy feeling sorry for himself again, and a poorly drawn panel to compliment it. It's unfortunate, there's some good ideas here, but a lot of stuff just holding it down. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Oct 18, 2013

    This issue kind of slowed down the story, and I'm kind of ready for this arc to be over. Though Ra's showing up, especially with what he's been doing lately in other books, definitely made things interesting. Read Full Review

    After the Villains Month Batman and Robin tie-in issue last month (featuring Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins), I knew Tynion would be bringing him back. And he writes him so well, that I know for a fact that the continuing storyline, even though it is getting quite lengthy and starting to drag on, will be excellent. I look forward to see what the creators have up their sleeves. And the fact that Ra's referred to Jason as a "young detective" harkens back to the original theory that Jason really truly is more like Batman than anyone, including themselves, are willing to admit. Whatever they have planned, you can count me in. Read Full Review

    Recently this title has become The Outlaws and Red Hood, and that's not really the title I'm looking to read.  But now we have Red Hood in the forefront.  But it's not really Red Hood, it's a blank slate that looks like Jason Todd.  Really it's just disappointing.  But maybe next month in the Zero Year tie in we'll see a Jason Todd that is closer to the one we know and love.  All in all this we had the conclusion to a supposed big battle, that's not really interesting in the end.   Read Full Review

    "Red Hood and the Outlaws" #24 as a comic book story is more interesting than I expected it to be, but the characters and situations are no more compelling than they were when I last checked in on this title. James Tynion IV has a direction he is steering Jason Todd in, but the rest of the book seems like shrapnel from the explosion -- heading out from the core story in random directions without true purpose. I'm not sure who the target is for this title, but I do know it's not me. Read Full Review
