BUT… this all seems rather familiar, in a “yeah, we get it, he’s taken over Penguin’s mob” sort of way. When is there going to be some action? Well, action does come our way this chapter, though it’s of the type that it adds – or perhaps builds upon – Jason’s post Robin/pre-Red Hood past.
I would consider this chapter to be the calm before the storm, reinforcing characters and filling the void to pad the story out to its obligatory six-chapter format. However, seeds are planted that may blossom in the near future, so I encourage us all to maintain an open mind.
I like the idea of Red Hood battling crime from inside the underworld. His associations are dubious, and any of them could seemingly betray him, or he could betray them. It all helps maintain the “outlaw” aspect of his persona. I’d appreciate seeing more of that played up, but given this chapter’s conclusion, it could be a while before we get there.Rating: 4/10
