Synopsis: Welcome to the Underlife, Jason Todd—you probably won’t survive! Banished from Gotham City and estranged from the Outlaws, Red Hood takes up residence in Appleton, a would-be American town that’s a secret haven for the criminal operators. When RH gets his hands on a crowbar and starts handing out some bloody justice, it really stirs up the hornet’s nest. And when a new Underlife member is introduced, Jason’s gonna get stung by the trouble he caused.

 

What You’ll Need To Know: So, Jason is after this underground drug trade called The Underlife, and has been since he’s been exiled from Gotham. Exiled for shooting Penguin, who un-miraculously survived. Roy Harper was working with him, until he decided to go to rehab, but that resulted in his death and deaths of many other heroes at the house. Batman, the one who essentially “banished” Red Hood from Gotham, broke the news to Jason. Devastated, he went to a cute little town called Appleton. Seems like a swell, friendly community and the type of place where Jason could recover.

 

In This Issue: We start off the issue in the hospital that Red Hood put the crooked Sheriff in, after he murdered an FBI agent. Appleton is like nice little rural town we go for family trips, what could go wrong? Weirdly enough, his leads from The Underground led up to this. It all makes sense when the sweet old couple pulls a gun on him, and the whole town attacks him. I had the utmost confidence Jason would have won that fight if this person hadn’t had a sledge hammer. Jason was not prepared for that kind of fight though. Definitely not for what comes next, a huge mutated dude the size of Bizarro? Why’d the keep Jason captive instead of just killing him there and WHY does that monster live there? And survive a grotesque impalement like that. After that, an angry mob comes after him along with an angry rival, who may just be his only hope of getting out of here.

Summary
This was very enjoyable and a fun way to up where we left off. Art was awesome but Jason looks like a completely different person is all. This Red Hood vs. Appleton is like the fight scene in Kingsmen in the church! A modern day classic! I think a lot of people will be excited with the guest character and Red Hood can kick a lot of ass with them.
Good
  • Fun, Bloody Action
  • Jason beats up old people
  • Reunion with a frienemy
Bad
  • Where was that Wingman Subplot? Was there even a point of putting him?
  • Hard to find one!
