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

    Yet another issue that feels like a wrap up, and again I ask is it ending soon? 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

    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

    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

    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

    Solid conclusion to the arc and to a lot of things that have been going on for longer. Not loving this year of the villain thing, but I suspect Lobdell doesn't either. Great art, especially for Susie, who is that rarest of rarities, an obese woman not drawn to look like a freak.

    Good issue. Finally the Red Hood shooting Penguin story gets addressed more& we get to know more about how Penguin survived& about his recovery. I don’t remember his name, but I like the guy, who freed Penguin, since Jason betrayed him.
    It’s only sad, that Penguin is portayed quite weak here. He’s written in character, but he’s not allowed to do any harm to Jason. Would have been more exciting if Penguin was. The dog was also cute.
    The year of the villain offering didn’t feel that right to me& somehow the event isn’t exciting yet. Everything takes too long without any real developments. Anyway we‘ll see next issue.

    Stylistic impressions as we dive in: 1) Jason Todd looks to be 35-40 in this book. If that's the case, Bruce Wayne is Frank Miller Dark Knight old. Not sure DC wants to go there. 2) Kudos to the writer for strategically placing BRIEF narration boxes around key plot points. Like "Who's that character?" or "What's that knife?" or "What's the backstory on Penguin's eye?" Narration boxes, when used judiciously, are godsends.

    This Wingman character. Todd has no idea who he is. Yet he takes his helmet off. And Todd worked for the World's Greatest Detective. Guess the fruit fell pretty far from the tree when it came to Todd.

    And then, on the boat, does the Batman tattoo suggest that Wingman at least knows Todd was Ro more
