Batman & the Outsiders #4

Batman & the Outsiders #4 offers the calm before the storm as Ra's al Ghul bends Sofia Ramos to his will and the Outsiders lick their wounds and gearing up to jump into the fray once more. The issue offers an allusion, if not a full explanation, about why Batman isn't joining the team on this mission. I'm guessing that the comic is referring to events tied to City of Bane, but honestly can't be sure as writer Bryan Edward Hill vagues this up as much as possible. Whatever the reason, it appears the Outsiders are on their own.

Despite the storyline feeling stalled throughout the entire issue, are a few moments of interest including Batman's conversation with Black Lightning, the comic explaining Katana's relationship to her sword (and the love trapped inside), and a nice moment of Cassandra offering comfort to Signal.

From what we see in the panels of Sofia and Ra's, it seems the Demon's Head has done his work well and the Outsiders will have their hands full in the battle to save Sofia's soul. For fans.

[DC, $3.99]
