To sum it all up..

If you want something good to read outside of the Batman main titles, then Red Hood And The Outlaws #15 is your book.

Posted October 11, 2017 by



The Belfry—it was constructed and innovated by Bizzaro, who, after being saved by his creator, Lex Luthor, is currently one of the smartest characters in the DC Universe. The invisible floating building over Gotham City has been responsible for cleaning the streets of Gotham from crime. Should this be a concern for Batwoman and the gang?

Scott Lobdell provides a lot of conflicts and plants a lot of seeds in RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #15. Let’s start off with Bizarro. Making Bizarro one of the smartest characters in the DC Universe is something unheard of. Personally, I find it peculiar but it definitely works to Scott’s advantage in telling a dynamic story. While we still have to find out where this story goes, I cannot deny the fact that Bizarro alone got me hooked into this story.

The conflict between The Belfry and Batman’s protégé is also interesting. However, the only thing I didn’t like about it is that it made one side look like the bad guys. I don’t think it was a good idea but it probably is a necessary development to further the story.

The most interesting conflict that Scott introduced in this story, at least for me, was Jason Todd’s I wouldn’t say much about it. It is something readers would love to find out. So check that out.

Dex Soy’s interior artwork is the selling point of this book. His line art perfectly compliments the tone of the story and the characteristic of the protagonists in the story. There are a lot of beautiful panels in this issue. Veronica Gandini’s colors is also worth mentioning. Not only does the color bring the panels to life, but it also makes Dex’s line art pop out.

Two more reasons to get the book: One, Romulo Fajardo Jr. is the colorist for the main cover of this book, and two, The Dark Knight Philippines, a local Batman fandom, is featured in one of the panels.

Overall, I am interested where Scott Lobdell and Dexter Soy are taking this story. If you want something good to read outside of the Batman main titles, then Red Hood And The Outlaws #15 is your book.
