Go figure. The 1 year jump ahead as a result of Infinite Crisis event actually seemed to help the Outsiders title. A little. It’s not the “holy shit!” upgrade I’ve been hoping for from Judd over the last couple of collections, but it’s something. The team has certainly changed a bit. The lineup isn’t exactly the same (view spoiler) and that makes for some interesting new interactions bet ...more

Clones with problems, villainy at its most sympathetic (a talking gorilla trying to manufacture a body for his soulmate, a talking brain encased in a metal box), with solid action-packed art pacing Winick's twisted story, a situation your average superhero would never think they would find themselves in, only the Outsiders could get out of. And what a great, ominous foreshadowing of an oldtimey bad guy sure to wreak havoc in the upcoming volume. A lotta fun.

This story arc begins One Year Later after the events of Infinite Crisis. The Outsiders are believed dead and begin a covert operation to avoid a civil war in the country of Mali. They stumble upon cloned metahumans which lead to a reunion with enemies they're all too familiar with. Heroes straddling the line of what's right and what needs to be done leads to great characterization. Some of Winick's strongest writing.

I would like to once again thank the DC writers for smoking crack so that I'll never have to. Of course Mallah and the Brain are in love and trying to make a body for the Brain so they can be together. I'm not sure if I feel horrified or gleeful about that characterization choice, but it definitely made this trade more interesting.
