All three of the Outlaws are separated and having their own adventures in the country of Qurac. Artemis reunites with her lost lover Akila who explains how she came back, Bizarro is doing something or other with a mountain, and Jason looks back at how the Joker killed him. Honestly, I have loved this series so far but I don’t know that we needed another look back at Jason’s death. Dexter Soy’s art is still incredible though.

The Trip to Qurac

The Outlaws travel to Qurac in this issue beautifully drawn by Dexter Soy. Put this artist on every book DC. He is perfect. While in Qurac, Jason naturally reminisces about his death at the hands of the Joker as the Outlaws try to get the Bow of Ra back from the person they believe has it. This issue seems almost ripped from the headlines in terms of what is going on with Syria except that instead of poison gas, we have this magical bow. It has to be a coincidence. I really can’t say one bad thing about this comic starring Jason Todd, who knew I would ever write a sentence like that.
