‘Red Hood: Outlaw #52’ (review)

Written by Shawn Martinbrough
Art by Tony Akins, Moritat
Published by DC Comics

 

The new creative team had a lot to live up to with their first issue.

They have done a great job of really bringing their “A” Game and I am really looking forward to where they are taking us.  This is a fine issue as well, and I to say that I am completely enjoying this new take on this character.

Jason Todd had one hell of a return to Gotham City in the last issue. If he thought that he might get a little downtime, he was sorely mistaken. As this issue starts, he finds himself in the middle of a turf war. The issue starts off with a lot of action and it doesn’t let up!

Jason takes the side of the new vigilantes trying to protect his old neighborhood called the Hill. They are going up against Killer Croc and his gang, after all.

But it an uneasy alliance as Jason doesn’t really trust them. He is forced to, however, as they are the only ones that can seemingly help him.

One of Jason’s childhood friends has been a target in this turf war.

Jason is not going to let that stand. He does everything he can for her in this issue. It does all lead to an explosive ending that really made me wonder what the hell is going to happen next in this comic!

It is a good feeling. Writer Shawn Martinbrough does a great job writing this book. It is fast and exciting and full of exceptional writing.

The artwork by Tony Akins and Moritat is especially good as well.

Overall, I am excited to see where this goes and cannot wait for the next issue.

RATING: B+
