This series started off interesting right away. There was a new person in charge, a new member and an underground child smuggling ring. A couple of the comics revolved around some of the members that they wouldn't normally highlight and that made it so much more interesting and exciting, to see these characters in a different, more intense way. It also gives us a villain that I haven't read about before, which made that story a lot more exciting! We find out that they have been conducting busine ...more

Outsiders: Wanted was pretty much the high water mark for Judd Winick’s run on the title. Judd’s focus was on the members of the team that are personal favorites of mine and there were couple of pretty cool moments. Winick delves deeper into the relationship between Nightwing and Arsenal and there are interesting similarities to that of their mentors. Although they seem to interact more like brothers. And by that I mean they beat each other’s asses. Nightwing has continued to be distant from the ...more

Very much a volume of two speeds and voices - part of it is the familiar ground of heroics and bright colours, bravery with a quip and ongoing storylines that are neatly tied into wider events happening in the DC universe at the time

The other part is far more somber, dealing with child abduction and paedophilia and the colours and art are far murkier and impressionistic for this part. Its uncomfortable reading, but I didn't find it sensationalistic or insulting - indeed it was a surprise to find

And here's where everything hits the fan. The previous two volumes were fun, fast-paced action, but here all of the sparse character moments of those books finally come together to reveal their greater significance. This volume is heavily character-based, which is a welcome change of pace, and twist after twist is launched at the reader. A wonderful "centerpiece" to this era of the Outsiders. The art also changes here, from the more realistic style of previous volumes to more stylized, angular p ...more

I am simply loving the Outsiders. Regret no getting into them a lot sooner. I have always love Nightwing and Speedy (Arsenal). I first glace I didn't think The Outsiders make a good team. But, wow do they ever and having members like Jade and shift in the team makes them that much better. This This trade papeback is simply amazing. Great story great art and great super heroes. My one and only problem was the "cameo" the show "Americas Most wanted" did. It took me out of the fantasy I enjoy from ...more

The theme of this trade is clearly fatherhood, and that increases the awesome tenfold. Perhaps it is my obsession with the domestic, former drug addict now world's best dad Roy Harper that leads me to focus on the parental relationships as opposed to simply the lost childhood aspects. I really liked the child slavery ring as a villain instead of the Joker or someone comically evil, but I liked it best of all because Winick brings it home with Roy. The side scenes with Batman, Green Arrow, and De ...more

Overall I liked it, even if the plot was a bit messy and seemed to jump out of nowhere. Then again, this is the third book and I haven't read the previous ones. I liked the character diversity, I liked the fact that there are more girls than boys, I liked the interspecies relationship and I liked Batman's little visit. Also I found Shrapnel absolutely hilarious.

Sort of juvinille. Some interesting twists and powers - but generally too juvineille. Interesting twist about child prostitution.

I mean, it wasn't bad but it was a far cry from my style. Perhaps if I'd read the volumes leading to here.

Anyway, take it or leave it.

This one was hard to get through. There's a lot of dark stuff going on. Not super villain dark but real world dark. Trigger warnings for mentions of rape, sexual abuse, and abuse.
