djotaku's Red Hood and the Outlaws #4 - Come Fly With Me--Come Die, Just Die Away! review


The issue has a funny start with Red Hood and Arsenal at the bar. This scene also reveals that Arsenal's vice in the new 52 was changed from being a drug addict to being an alcoholic.

But I'm also referri...
