Two Bat comic books reflecting on what was and what is to come, as the Batbooks continue their theme of separating Batman from his Batfamily. And both written by Scott Lobdell as well, an industry outlier himself…
In Red Hood: Outlaws #29 it’s only Batman that joins Batwoman to Red Hood, but they are both estranged from the man and only have Roy Harper to talk about…
Though there is a Batcharacter who Batwoman clearly stays in touch with. There was no Question of that.
Not much chance of that, Jason.
While Nightwing #54 has Batman and Batgirl to talk to, but has no interest in who they are and who he used to be…
Even if there’s someone else taking his own role.
And an in-continuity Funko Pop of his past self…

RED HOOD OUTLAW #29
(W) Scott Lobdell (A/CA) Pete Woods
Batwoman joins the fight! Both Kate and Jason find themselves exiled from Gotham for taking the law into their own hands. But just because they both angered Batman doesn’t make them allies…does it? Maybe not, but both are on the trail of a rogue player in the Underlife-the secret cabal of criminal conspirators who play by a shared set of rules-and teaming up could be the only way to take him down. What’s actually hiding under the seemingly perfect surface of Appleton? The Red Hood might not live to expose it!In Shops: Dec 05, 2018
