Jason Todd - Batman's one-time sidekick, currently the anti-hero known as Red Hood - has been imprisoned in Arkham Asylum for the past several months. But after a period of good behavior, will a transfer to a lower-security prison mean reformation for Jason Todd . . . or is trouble waiting in the wings for Batman and Robin? Don't miss "The Streets Run Red" part one of three!

    The issue pretty much serves as a way to get you up to speed on who is the Red Hood and what he loves to do. The cliff hanger ending pretty much keeps the tone of the issue going and left me wanting more. Judd Winicks writing is spot on along with Guillem March & Andrei Bressans's art work.

    A very well plotted and VERY well paced start to a promising storyline. The heroes are in place, the villain is loose, and I can't wait for the next issue! This is the first initial-storyline issue in a long time that has made me feel that the allocated number of issues isn't enough–this story feels like it could be much bigger and more epic than its three issues will allow.

    The Red Hood is out, and things should be about to get interesting. I actually like this version of Jason Todd (in the biker outfit, not the worst comic costume of all-time), and I'm hoping by the end of the storyline we get a little better sense of how he's going to fit into the DCU and, more specifically, the Batman universe. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Worrying about the state of Batman and Robin during Tomasi and Gleason's hiatus seems to be for naught. Winick, March and Bresson have supplied an entertaining follow-up to Grant Morrison's Jason Todd arc from earlier in this series. Let's hope they can continue this hot streak next month.

    Maybe it was the red hair, maybe it was the talking animals, I don't know, but for some reason, this issue didn't draw me into the story like I expected it to. It was still better than most of the Batman titles, but it just didn't provide the greatness I was hoping for. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 19, 2011

    With "Batman and Robin" looking like it's turned into the new "Legends of the Dark Knight" with rotating creative teams, "Batman and Robin" #23 isn't off to a bad start. It's taken a character I loathe, and made me mildly interested in what happens to him next. So hats off to Winick, March, and Bressan, because that's such an impossible feat that, well, who knows what's next? Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - John Barringer May 20, 2011

    I don't mean to be the back-seat driving comic book fan that the internet is full of; I was excited for this issue, anxious to read Winick back writing Jason Todd and eager to watch Red Hood battle it out with Batman and Robin, all of which we could very well get in the next issue, but I'm going to bag and board this and I honestly can't imagine a moment where I would pull it out again.Finally: was it just me or was there an Arresdeted Development quote (ala Tobias Funke) in there from Jason Todd when he said ""how are you?" Maybe it's just me. Read Full Review
