A strong start, this series has started on the right foot, and what I like is how far it is from stupid, poorly made inclusive ideas and politics, it is only darkness and action. The art is good enough and the covers are beautiful.

Lobdell gave Red Hood incredible things, All-Cast, resurrecting Willis was a good idea, but was not well managed(Taylor copied that idea with Nightwing and his half sister) Solitary, the Untitled were good characters, however they could have a better development.

Merlyn - Aug 11, 2021

@LeiaFavaz: I agree with your assessment about Lobdell, I didn't say he's Alan Moore or something, just that he got Jason and he took him in a good direction. Very good analysis, I mostly agree with it.
