In the aftermath of the war between Batman and The Joker, Jason Todd has a few decisions to make. Does Gotham City-or the world at large-really need the Red Hood? If Jason contemplates retiring the Red Hood mask altogether, what does that mean for Artemis and Bizarro? Can the Outlaws continue to exist without their leader? A family reunion with Ric Grayson doesn’t go as planned as he brought along his new friend: Punchline!

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Aug 28, 2020

    I have a feeling this book is going to be an important one in the Joker War event, something I'm really gripped by. When you reach that last page, you'll see why I'm saying this. I've been waiting a long time for this to be resolved, so I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Still, the allusion to Jason Todd's death was powerful. Shows how much he's grown since he came back to life. Read Full Review

    Lobdell seems to be wrapping up his run in a classy way, and I hope the next two issues are as good as this one. Read Full Review

    Some tie-in books dont add much to the main story, but this issue is definitely worth grabbing for readers who have been casually invested in this epic Batman event. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 25, 2020

    Both Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth are bringing their "A" games to this Joker War tie-in that really combines a lot of things from Jason Todd's past to screw with him in the present and I couldn't be happier. Yeah, it does get old when we always bring up Jason's death, but here it works well and makes me excited for what's to come from a lot of characters in a book that looks amazing the whole way through.

    Overall this issue is surprisingly good, building on Jasons mythology, moving the story forward in The Joker War and keeping things tight and right throughout. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Aug 25, 2020

    For a book designed to line up with the Joker War event, this was a fun read. Punchline's plan could have used a little work, and the conversation between Joker and Jason really didn't do much for me, but generally I enjoyed reading this. Additionally, Lobdell takes the opportunity to give readers another look at Jason and Bruce's relationship while also lining up some plot elements for later in the series. All in all, if you've been reading the Joker War books, this isn't a bad one to pick up. Read Full Review

    This issue places Jason Todd squarely in the events of the Joker War, in a way that is both bombastic and slightly hollow. Read Full Review
