Some thoughts about Red Hood: Outlaw #36
Jason's empire is over once that The Penguin returns. However, this might be the push he needed to get his life in a new direction although it might not be the best one.
This arc comes to a conclusion and is a pretty satisfying one all things considered.
Scott Lobdell offers the final chapter of this little era and gives a sense of closure while at the same time planting the seeds for the future. The characterization is once again pretty solid due that the ramifications of the return of The Penguin are reflected in each character, particularly if we're talking about the friendship between Jason and Bunker which doesn't seem like it could be fixed. The rest of the cast also get a good portrayal, especially Suzie Su who has really grown as a character and is no longer a villain but an actual friend of Jason and he appropriately responds to that in the story.
If there's a complaint I have is that I'm not sure if I like the direction they're taking with Jason which seems like yet another editorial mandate and might be related to the current events that are happening in DC's line. Hope things work for the better.
Pete Woods' art remains solid with expressive characters and a fluid style that depicts the story clearly.
Good issue, hope things stay this way.
