starkiller809's Red Hood and the Outlaws #5 - I'm Free as a Bird--and this Bird you Cannot Kill review

Race Against the Clock

Rd Hood and the Outlaws has been telling the story of three 'outlaws' who are working together to get what they want and do what they think is right. What is this team up to in issue #5 of their own on-going series?
 
THE GOOD:
Kenneth Rocafort was unknown to me before this series and I'm really liking his art. I think that it's well defined but there is a sketchiness to it and I really like it. I also like the details he adds to the background and it makes the character's world feel more alive. The story is pretty good in this issue. We get to see Roy Harper save Starfie and I think that was a great part. We also get to see Jason Todd fight a hidden monster, then now has people angry at them.
 
THE BAD:
I really like Jason Todd and Roy on the team, but I just can't help but feel Starfire should've been used on a different team. Why not put her on the Teen Titans. I think she works better with them. However, Starfire is starting to fit in more too me.
 
THE VERDICT: 4/5 (Great)
This series is a different series then some of the other series that is being published. These characters work together and do what they think is right and it make for a fun story. There is plenty of action and the story plot is easy to follow and straight to the point. We may be in a bit too far for you to go get all of the issues, but you can wait till trade and you probably will enjoy it quite a bit. It's fairly good.

Current incarnation of Teen Titans is a mess. I don't think it's a good idea to use Starfire there.

    Letting Go but Gaining More 0

    The Good: This issue was absolutely fantastic. This issue had major revelations for the characters and the team itself. We finally see Jason let go of his ideas on revenge for the wrongs that were caused to him by Bruce and Joker completely. Jason has a new goal and it is for the greater good in the end of it but still showed that he isn't getting rid of the "outlaw" attitude due to commentary after his fight. Roy mans up and shows that he isn't one to be messed with when he wants to be and he i...
