    It may not tie-in to Robin War very well, but it's a solid done in one issue. Come for the fun action sequence and strong character development of Joker's Daughter. Read Full Review

    As far as tie-ins go, Red Hood/Arsenal #7 is as flimsy a tie-in as one can get. If you want important ramifications, stick to the main series. However, if you have been enjoying Red Hood/Arsenal since it launched, and favor "buddy-cop" team-up stories featuring renegade outlaws and their zany adventures, with amazing art, then this is the comic book for you.

    While readers might not get the Robin War tie-in that they were hoping for, what they will get is for my money the best depiction of both Jason Todd's and Tim Drake's origin story that I've ever seen since the beginning of the New 52.  It doesn't last very long, but it delivers an emotional impact and really solidifies why Jason and Tim are so close.  We've also got a Roy and Joker's Daughter story...... that while most of this book consists of, it never lands the punch that we got from the beginning of this book, but still ends up feeling like a half decent story for this series.  Put all of that together with excellent art all the way through and you get yourself a fine installment to the Red Hood/Arsenal series, just not the Robin War event that was advertised.   Read Full Review

    To be quite honest, this book has very little to do with "Robin War," aside from mentioning it. It works better as a standard issue ofRed Hood/Arsenal. You really won't miss much if you do decide to skip it, but I found it to be an entertaining read. Read Full Review

    It was fun to see Arsenal and JD fight the three thugs but this was just a means to set up the next arc. Over all this Robin War story did not interrupt the Red Hood and Arsenal story. It just provided a transition to the new arc. Read Full Review

    I'm content, but I really do have high hopes for Red Hood / Arsenal. I just think about their personalities and they have the potential to flow better within the storylines that they have been through in the past six issues, but I guess I'll take what I can get. I really don't mind the bromance, but all these moments that they have gets tiring. I want actual story rather than emotions when it comes to this. The artwork helps at some points throughout the comic book, but really, it's the colors that make it and not break it. Read Full Review

    By no means is this essential reading but I've enjoyed Red Hood since people were crying foul that Starfire was drawn like a stripper during issue #1 of the new 52 relaunch. What made this issue enjoyable was making Joker's Daughter a personable character. Prior to this, you didn't know much about her. She came out of nowhere and was not as likable as Harley Quinn who had way more personality. Now you see her as a lost soul and I think there's potential for this character after all. But in terms of Robin War, this didn't do much to move that event. In fact they coulda just dropped Red Hood fir this month's title and called it Arsenal with guest star: Joker's Daughter.

    Pretty good issue by no means do I like Jokers Daughter as a character but the latest issue seem to make her a more sympathetic character.

    This issue was simple and good. Some good action and moments with arsenal and J.D, a nice talk between red robin and red hood and a cliffhanger to end. 8

    Easily the weakest part of an otherwise strong event. Characterization is very weak here, with Jason once again whining endlessly about how he never lived up to Dick. The Roy and Joker's Daughter adventure ended up being mainly pointless. Worthless exposition continues to be haphazardly thrown around the pages.
