There's no way to plan for every contingency...even for a son of the Bat like Jason Todd. His goal was to take down the Penguin and assume his role as the prince of Gotham, but the best laid plans go awry when Oswald Cobblepot gets the last laugh-and the last bullet! And not even the Red Hood and his posse can stop him. (How could they with the Iceberg Lounge under siege and Bunker, Wingman and the Sisters Su too busy to help Jason deal with a Penguin ascendant?) Don't miss the startling conclusion to "Prince of Gotham!" What can Lex Luthor offer former sidekick Jason Todd? Sidekicks... broken, battered and catastrophically dangerous sidekick more

    This likely won't be the last we've seen of Jason's allies. Even though Bunker is no longer on his side, he could be a friend or foe in the future. What does Wingman's Bat tattoo mean? Could he be Jason's father Willis? I have so many theories! This was a really solid issue and ending to Prince of Gotham. I can't wait to see what happens next. Art and colors were awesome!

    Red Hood: Outlaw #36 brings Jason Todd's confrontation with the Penguin to a climatic high which fizzles out in good time. Read Full Review

    Regarding the art, I like Jason Todd's look right now. I'm not talking about Red Hood. Jason has the businessman look down. Regarding his outfit, Peter Woods' rendition of the original Red Hood outfit is good, but not for me. I stand by his and Lobdell's decision to change the character's look with the shift in artists as much as I did when the change was first announced. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jul 10, 2019

    Red Hood: Outlaw #36 is the sigh at the end of a confused scowl. The production value is good, but the aimlessness of the past year on this title hardly set up an exciting"or even satisfying"conclusion. If you're a die-hard Toddler, or if you have some extra scratch, it's hardly a waste of money; but beyond that, you aren't missing out if you skip it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 10, 2019

    While the future looks bright for where this series is going, the way we'll get there was done in a rushed and forced manner to finalize this part of Jason Todd's life. The art was really great and there were some fun moments that showed you that Jason always had a plan for this part of his life, but it doesn't all jive in my mind and just comes to a close to fast to really feel important.

    Some of these plots actually feel like they could have been interesting long-term, but alas, there's event comics to be told. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - belleburr Jul 10, 2019

    Pete Woods, Rex Lokus and ALW's Troy Peteri do such a wonderful job of illustrating the moment above, of showing in the facial expressions of those on the receiving end of Jason's generosity just what it means to them, that it is just fantastic. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Franklin Milliren Jul 14, 2019

    A minor recton serves to undercut a previously great moment and drowns out what could be other great moments in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 10, 2019

    Where Red Hood heads next is up to him. Its the Year of the Villain, as DC keeps reminding us, so he may be a recipient of the offer Luthor is extending to various characters in various titles. Or he may have bigger problems to contend with. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - H. Ham Jul 11, 2019

    As much as I complain that DC doesn't have enough editorial oversight, if this is what it means for DC's editors to start making shots again, maybe we should go back to yesteryear and have writers doing whatever they want without any oversight. Read Full Review
