I’ve been reading a lot of comics lately, trying to get my mojo going again for my webcomic. I like to try different books and not just lock in to the Big Two, and I’ve found a bunch of good ones. The one I look forward to the most though is one I just wasn’t going to give a try in the beginning. I am so glad I did because Red Hood and the Outlaws DC Rebirth has been a great read for me. I thought the idea was good but with so many Rebirth titles, didn’t give it too much of a chance.
Of course the cover caught my attention first, but what really got me hooked was the dynamic between the three of the Dark Trinity. Having Red Hood, Artemis and Bizzaro working together (somewhat) has been not just a growing experience for them, but they are entertaining as well. Red Hood has been a favorite of mine since Under the Red Hood movie, and his part as the unofficial leader is very well done. Artemis has quickly grown on me as a tough, take no prisoners Amazon that actually has a great story behind her motives for working with the two. Bizzaro’s story even has me rooting for him to find what he’s looking for, people to respect him. From the art to the dialogue, the story so far between the three has been refreshing because they don’t apologize for who they are, they just do their thing and go with the flow. Batman’s line in one of the stories I though captured the whole book: “the world might have just enough heroes, Jason. Maybe we can do with a few outlaws.”
Let me know, what books are you reading that should be on my Hot List to read? Drop your comments!
