COMIC REVIEW: FTN reviews Red Hood & the Outlaws #26

January 2nd, 2014 by Sarah Barclay Comments

Writer: James Tynion IV

Artist: Julius Gopez

Published by DC Comics 

Finally, some sort-of good news for our dear old Jason Todd! After getting just about everything thrown at him in recent issues, Jason finally gets a break, and a return of his memories.

Let’s be real, here. Who doesn’t like stories with the power of friendship? I really enjoyed Roy and Kory’s support for Jason, even when the chips were ridiculously low. Also really liked how Cheshire was slightly helpful to the Outlaws as well. Tynion really gets these characters and it shows. He’s really awesome at showing the personalities.

I’m still not a fan of Gopez’s style, but it wasn’t too distracting this time. Though, I could have been distracted by my enjoyment of the story. Nevertheless, it was there, and it wasn’t bad. Really digging the colors, like an incredible amount.

Two words: flaming swords. You gotta love when an issue ends with flaming swords. I feel this arc is nearing its endgame, and I have to admit: I’m pretty pumped for it.

Self proclaimed as hilarious, Sarah is a strange mixture of weird human and sports fan. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA (but currently studying photography in Ohio) she spends most of her time running into tables and tripping over herself while waiting for a TARDIS to show up in the courtyard. If not in a tree or receiving medical attention, she can be found on the tweeter-box (@alfredthebatcat) ranting about ice hockey, baseball or her undying love of Dick Grayson.
