Running a casino has turned out to be more dangerous than Jason Todd ever imagined. Especially when he's the public face of the Iceberg Lounge. It turns out Oswald Cobblepot has way more enemies than the Penguin-and with the crime boss missing, they descend on Jason and his crew. But Jason doesn't need to look far for an extrajudicial solution to his problems: apparently he has the Red Hood in his contacts.

    Eventually, the Red Hood launches into action and there are some incredible moments at the end of the book. Nothing is resolved at the end but that's okay. It's still a fantastic read and, as usual, I can't wait to read the next issue and it can't get here fast enough. Read Full Review

    Lobdell always seems to have some fresh ideas for the book, which helps it from getting stale. No matter how long this casino owner arc lasts, its already living up to the premise. Read Full Review

    Overall, the issue was a fun read and I am thoroughly enjoying this arc and how it placed Jason in such a different role than he has been in recently. Read Full Review

    Overall this issue does a great job of tying Jason's past to his present while opening up some new mysteries. However, the fact that the old mysteries of just where the hell Artemis and Bizarro are or who is behind the push for Jason's return to Gotham, haven't been resolved continues to be the elephant in the room.

    Lastly, you'll notice the score for this issue is an 80 out of 100. If Jason didn't say, "Hold my beer," to Isabel, the score would've bumped up to an 85. It was forced humor. Failed humor. Red Hood is better than that. Scott Lobdell is, too. Read Full Review

    You looking for a kick ass time?  Well, Red Hood is there to for you baby because his new crew and him are wiping the floor with people throughout this issue.  Not only that, they're making you realize how cool continuity is too, while showcasing it with some amazing art.  Is this a perfect issue?  No, but it's fun as hell and I look forward to it every month and this issue is no exception.

    Little bit of a filler, but still a fun read! Woods and Lokus did a great job making the pictures and color pop. It had enough action to keep you gripped. It was good overall! Read Full Review

    Red Hood: Outlaw #33 isn't great, but it is a lot of fun. Lobdell's battle banter never gets overly silly, and Woods and Lokus turn in some excellent visual storytelling to keep the kerfuffle moving along. Read Full Review

    Pete Woods is back at the drawing board, and doing his usual stellar job of it. I'm looking forward to seeing this story play out. I didnt particularly care theJason-Todd-plays-Jack-Reacher, nomadic troubleshooter concept they had goingfor a while. If I wanted to read something like that, Id read, well, JackReacher.

    Just an odd curiosity of a book with no real direction. Read Full Review

    This issue is about as neutral as they come, even for a Red Hood book. It's not particularly bad, but nothing stands out the keep you interested either. Read Full Review

    The ending was a bit disappointing but other than that the overall quality was great. It is action packed with the return of a long-time-no-see character mixed with witty quips from Jason. This Casino arc looks promising.

    Entertaining, but starting to feel a bit lighter and more disposable that it has. The Su sisters are not nearly are interesting as Artemis and Bizarro.

    Well it’s good to see Jason being more of a villain again, but unfortunately he’s still nothing like his Pre52 self. What is quite disappointing, I’ve never liked the idea of excusing his crimes as it was done in New52. I’m also missing psycho Red Hood as he was in Battle for the Cowl.
    However in this issue Penguin is still held hostage by Jason, while he took over his Casino& life. Penguin is organizing a break out& we don’t see, if he succeeds. That’s the entire plot.
    Just like in his Nightwing arc Lobdell is doing a great job writing the characters, but we still don’t get any explanation how Jason took over Penguins empire& why. Or why does Batman accept it just like that? These are questions, that hopefully get more

    Ok .... Why does Lobell continue to try to team people up with The REDHOOD?? I enjoyed the Bizzaro & Artemis team up but once they left and he became “RED HOOD OUTLAW” I began to enjoy RH 1000 times more! As the issues went on and RH was alone solving things , he was at the height of being one of DC’s badass hero’s. But these last two issues , with him teaming up and then running the ice club with a gang of women , really watered down the Dark, mysterious and tactical ability the RH is about! I’m happy this line is over and hope and pray Lobell gets RH back to being .... An OUTLAW !! Right now Slade Wilson is running with the Teen Titans , it would have been so much more interesting if RH would have had issues blending in with tha more

    Mostly just boring action with an extremely abrupt ending.

    It’s really helpful how those new guys clearly and cogently explained their plan for us like we’re morons who couldn’t have figured out that they were there to look for Penguin on account of how they were introduced to us by one of them being like “hey dude we haven’t heard from Penguin in a while maybe let’s go check that out.” Thank god we have someone there to hold our hands and explain to us exactly what’s happening at all times it’s so helpful.

    -I will admit that this Red Hood Outlaw nonsense is better than when it started.

    -Pete Woods is always hit or miss, this issue was a hit I guess. I liked his art, not a lot, but it was alright.

    THE BAD:

    -I don't know why the opening exists and I don't want to find out, so with that in mind, the opening failed.

    -I don't care about Jason running the iceberg lounge. Another writer might (?) do it well, but Lobdell doesn't have it in him.

    -I truly don't care about any of these secondary characters this issue expects me to remember. I don't and won't, knowing that soon enough, they will be forgotten by everyone, as they should be.

    -What is it wit Lobdell more
