Needless to say, Dick does lend a hand, which is good because with the KGBeast on the Outlaws’ trail, they’re gonna need all the help they can get. The three have settled into the team they’ve tried to be, and life is good for them. It would be a shame to see all that hard work go to waste.
The story is a pleasant interlude, a done-in-one that offers potential new readers a jumping on point, with a major investment in seeking out the back issues. All you really need to know is here: Red Hood was once a Robin, Artemis is an Amazon, and Bizarro am clone.
Tyler Kirkham’s artwork is a bit sketchier here than I recall. Believe me, it gets the job done with style and panache, but if you’re a fan of heavy black inks, you’re doomed to disappointment. It’s all done (seemingly) with pencils and colors, and that’s not a bad thing. Sometimes, it works very effectively, as it does here. My only concern is that sometimes, readers regard it as a rush job, which is unfair.
