Red Hood and the Outlaws, (New 52) Vol. 1: Redemption by Scott Lobdell


Red Hood and the Outlaws, Vol. 1: Redemption
by Scott Lobdell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

New 52

Red Hood is intriguing to me, as I had never heard of the character before I started the new 52. I've read the whole "Death of the Family" arc and the Red Hood volume was good enough that I had to backtrack and find out more about him. Of course throughout all my DC reading he's popped up here and there but only very briefly. Roy Harper has made a few brief pre-Arsenal appearances as well. This volume has great dialogue and is very comedic. If you love banter among JL team members, there is a great deal of that going on here and it really made me like both Roy and Jason. Princess K we don't get to know very well but she's very powerful and everything mentioned about her past is very intriguing. Lots of action in this volume as we have a couple of side stories going on but the main theme centres on the new "team" tracking down the "Untitled" and finishing off the remaining members. A lot of Jason's background with the "All" is explored and I feel much more familiar with the character now. Interesting tidbit shows Nightwing's old blue costume having been left aboard Starfire's hideaway when Jason first finds her.
