Diners are currently very dangerous places to be if you are up against a DC Comics superhero. Especially one from the Batman comic books. Heroes In Crisis #1 showed us the damage that Harley Quinn can do with a butter knife even against a heavy armoured foe like Booster Gold…
Nightwing #50 showed us the damage a cup of coffee can do when you’ve been shot in the head…
And today Red Hood uses a sugar cellar.
The moral of this story? Never go into a diner if anyone from Gotham is hanging around. This is also where Jason Todd learns about what happened with Roy Harper in Heroes In Crisis #1.
Though what happened with Dick Grayson does not get brought up. Whereas Titans #27 goes the other way, with an initial recognition of the death of Roy Harper, that’s it for the entire issue, and they are more concerned with the shooting of Dick.
It’s almost as if different editorial teams were told different things about what was happening in Heroes In Crisis… and Titans had to rush a Harper-recognition at the last moment… and no one was told that Wally West did alongside Roy Harper…
RED HOOD OUTLAW #27
(W) Scott Lobdell (A/CA) Pete Woods
Everything changed for the Red Hood last issue. This time around, everything changes for Jason Todd! Devoid of partners and exiled from Gotham City, Jason gets a fateful message from the last person he expected to see again. The news he learns leaves him with no choice but to don the Red Hood mask once more and double down on his two-fisted crimefighting approach. Pray for whoever gets in Jason’s way as “The Outlaw” kicks into high gear. In Shops: Oct 10, 2018 SRP: $3.99

Newly awakened metahuman Ionbound suffers a fateful transformation that rocks the Titans team to their core. If they can’t save these Source Wall victims, what good is their latest mission? But does this development hold the key to helping them? Or is it a harbinger of more death and destruction to come? That’s a lot of questions to answer; good thing there are two issues this month to cover all that ground! In Shops: Oct 10, 2018 SRP: $3.99
