batman-and-robin-25-coverThe most recent Red Hood storyline comes to a (somewhat disappointing) close in this issue. Whether events were cut short to make room for DC’s new reboot, or not, that’s certainly how things feel here.

Batman and Robin’s team-up with Jason Todd to save his former partner Scarlet runs into early snags as former hero turned crime boss turned… whatever the hell he is now repeatedly doublecrosses the Dynamic Duo.

The issue isn’t bad by any means, but it does have a rushed feel and is stuck with an anticlimactic ending that, given the looming reboot, will never truly be resolved.

That said, there are a couple of nice scenes where we’re given a look into Todd’s view of Dick Grayson, and vice-versa. This storyline, even when it has struggled at times has done a good job focusing on the differences between the first two Robins. Personally, I would have liked more of Damian‘s thoughts on Todd whose outlook is far similar to the Son of Batman than his current boss. With a look.
