The most unlikely team-up ever comes to an end. It's the crashing finish to the brief alliance of Batman, Robin and Jason Todd, a.k.a. The Red Hood, against a common foe. After all, the three "sons of Wayne" can put their differences aside for just so long. And when one fight ends, another will begin...

    This is a solid issue and most people who happen to be familiar with these characters can probably pick up this issue and read it as a stand alone without any problems. However, I highly recommend any Red Hood story written by Judd, so I highly recommend the two issues prior to this one as well. This is a very well written, entertaining book that will not disappoint Jason Todd fans. Read Full Review

    "Batman and Robin" has not been a must read for me since Quitely left, though I hung on devotedly for a while, but there was some fun and interesting stuff going on in this issue. Perhaps more importantly, it was a look at Jason Todd that made me see the potential for him as a truly interesting and layered pseudo bad-guy. Read Full Review

    A strongly scripted but poorly penciled conclusion to the Jason Todd “Streets Run Red” storyline. As much as I'm looking forward to having Bruce as the one and only Batman again, I'll miss Dick and Damian's relationship. Read Full Review

    Yes, the dialogue was good-to-great, something Winick is a master at, but the story, and even the look of Jason was the Morrison version! And anybody who knows me knows I hate the red-headed, acne-riddled Morrison version of Jason Todd... Now if Winick would have written HIS version of Jason, I'm SURE this storyline would have been eight different shades of awesome. But he didn't, and so it wasn't. Read Full Review

    That said, there are a couple of nice scenes where we're given a look into Todd's view of Dick Grayson, and vice-versa. This storyline, even when it has struggled at times has done a good job focusing on the differences between the first two Robins. Personally, I would have liked more of Damian's thoughts on Todd whose outlook is far similar to the Son of Batman than his current boss. With a look. Read Full Review

    And that's a shame because Winick's latest Jason Todd story is actually quite interesting. It's filled with Winick's trademark wit, some great banter between Dick, Damian and Jason, and even circles back around to reintroduce the Grant Morrison creation of Sasha, who has become Todd's twisted female version of Robin. This issue, and storyline in general, would have had more impact if the art actually matched the writing. Read Full Review

    I used to really love Winick's work. What the hell happened here? For once, I'm looking forward to a reboot of this series at least to get it back on the rails it was chugging along just a few months ago. Read Full Review

    The art from Greg Tocchini and Andy Smith is decent enough; nothing that knocked me out of my chair or even really made me take notice. The best artwork of the entire book was Guillem March’s cover. Batman and Robin #25 is a testament to just how done this series is. When the big Subway sandwich inserts are more exciting than the rest of the book, it’s time to call it a day. Read Full Review
