Batman and the Outsiders #10
Batman has a talk with Sophia while the rest of the team regroups and decides what to do next. Jefferson works his way to Ra’s al Ghul with the help of Cassandra Cain’s mother. When things don't go as planned, the Outsiders arrive.
Batman and the Outsiders #10 moves quickly because nothing happens. The one positive is that the Outsiders get a beach day out of it. I always enjoy that Batman and Bruce Wayne are distinctly different characters. Batman’s dialogue with Sophia feels so natural and human while Bruce Wayne sounds strictly business regarding Martina. They both play important roles. Because he knows about Martina, I was hoping he would make an appearance– although Black Lighting in action is pretty cool.
The highlight of the issue was Black Lighting stopping Martina’s car. That happens in a couple panels. Right when things are about to go down and the rest of the team shows up, the issue is over. I am all for buildup in a series, but there wasn’t any buildup. The whole issue revolved around finding out where Ra’s is through Martina. Obviously this issue was just filler, but I found myself skimming pages on multiple occasions. Big picture wise, I can see the importance of this issue, though.
Nothing really stands out in Batman and the Outsiders #10. Once the excitement starts the issue is over. If you are currently following the series then pick up a copy. If you have not been following then wait for a trade or the next issue.
