Scott Lobdell's RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS Re-drawn & Re-cast

Some people critique comics, others put their pencil where their mouth is.

There's been two issues so far for RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS. It has been the center of controversy when the first issue featured Starfire with what seemed to be a new attitude. With all the discussion, it's clear that some people are really digging the series while others have voiced their opinion on why they don't like it.

LOL: A Special to Comicvine
By Scott Lobdell

I've certainly heard from a lot of people about RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS... but only one critic has gone so far as to re-write and re-draw and re-cast issue the series! And trust me when I say it is deserving of a wider audience!

VoxVulpina is a riot -- a very talented artist. Even better, a very talented satirist!

For everyone who misses the days of NOT BRAND ECHH and WHAT THE -- ?! VoxVulpina totally captures the cutting irreverence that made those series so biting and funny in the day. Here is hoping that we see more of this person's work in the future. (Very few people remember this, but I actually cut my teeth on WHAT THE -- ?! "The Last Charlie America Story" and "Marvel Balls" -- and I even wrote an entire MARVEL RIOT book where I savagely spoofed my own work on Age of Apocalypse back in the day!)

And yes, I could certainly do without the mean comment section, but that's just because I'm a person and no one actually enjoys being insulted. But... I will let you in on a Secret Of Being A Comic Book Writer: some people like your writing, some people don't!

Go check it out on VoxVulpina's DeviantArt site... and who knows, maybe ComicVine will collect the all the pages when they come out!

Here is the cover and first page.

After ditching Superboy and escaping the costraints of his book, Rose Wilson sets off in search of her father, Deathstroke, in order to wipe his new cheesy "scariest badass on the planet" persona off the face of the Earth. On the way, she bumps into this weird-ass mismatched trio in a jeep who’re speeding like crazy to get away from their evil writer, LOL-bdell. This newly emerging supervillain has traumatized our heroes, subjecting them to the worst forms of torture you can think of, including loss of braincells, hours of mandatory posing and Frat Boy Syndrome.
