    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.

    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

    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

    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
