I would actually give this 3.5 starst but there is nothing like it and some of the other reviewers didn't actually review but gave this their personal take on the writers tactics instead of the story itself. This title has been hit or miss, this collection, though adversely affected by the change in artist in the middle of it (the original artist had health issues which took him out of the title for a while) still manages to tell a good action story.
Taking the story by itself readers should find it a good, fun read with enough twists to make it interesting.
There is too much space devoted to the revelation of one of the characters as lesbian and the ending is a little lackluster (or shocking, depending on your take) but I believe that it should satisfy the regular reader. As long as you are not waiting for a perfect portrayal of long stablished characters, I think most would enjoy it.
Volume 5 of the Outsiders is showing it's age. Inconsistent writing and characterization, on top of less than stellar artwork, leaves much to be desired. It's easy to see why sales for the comic book are dropping. Winick and company need to look back at the first two volumes and remind themselves of what they were doing that everyone liked.
This one is for die hard fans only. Definitely not a book to grab onto if you haven't read the previous volumes (not to mention Infinite Crisis and umpteen tie-ins). There are many references to events and characters from outside the actual Outsiders comic series.
Fantastic. I was enjoying this series before I read this book. After reading it, I love it.
This book's realistic beginning set in an African Dictatorship embroiled in civil war caught my attention. The Outsiders seem to be slipping into moral gray areas and a notable member of the hero community voices his concern in a surprise cameo. Another visit from a couple of Golden age superheros put a smile on my face the following chapter.
If you've enjoyed the other Outsider books in this series so far you'll find lots to like here. In my always humble opinion this is the best of the series yet.
