Red Hood and the Outlaws #28 Review

Red Hood and the Outlaws #28 - Page 1Writer: James Tynion IV

Artist: Stephen Segovia

Colorist: Nei Ruffino


Jason, Roy, and Kori sojourn to the island of Elysium for some well needed R&R but things turn sour quickly for the trio and their guest Isabel.

The Ups: In this issue there is a strong sense of emotion that is paramount in making the characters relatable to the audience but also driving the story forward. The book is paced in a way that all the pieces connected to the exposition of this arc are set up in front of the reader and writer James Tynion IV does a splendid job of hinting at where they will lead. The artwork done by Stephen Segovia is almost in complete contrast to the emotional level in the issue with its dark tones and that is quite interesting.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #28 - Page 4The Downs: The issue is paced a bit too slowly and the problem the characters are faced with seems to come out of nowhere.

Overall: This issue truly is a brilliant exposition to another arc in an amazing series but the pace that the book moves at is a bit too slow and the confusion brought on by the antagonist may be enough to put some people off but to others they may greet the issue with open arms which isĀ  just as fair.
