Batman: The Adventures Continue #13

Jason Todd is done watching. First, he's abducted Tim Drake from the Batcave and hidden him away in a death trap. He's also had altercations with both Alfred and Leslie Tompkins before turning his attention on the Joker who he manages to ambush at the Penguin's club. Nearly all the pieces are in place for the Red Hood's end game.

Other than a few too many panels being wasted with the Joker and the Penguin's henchmen going at it, things keep moving here as Jason Todd is able to get his hands on Batman as well.

After having made changes to Jason Todd's final encounter with the Joker as Robin, lightening it up a little for the audience of Batman: The Animated Series by not having the Joker actually kill the boy (although hitting him repeatedly with a crowbar probably didn't help Jason's personality), I'll be curious to see what the current creative team has in store for the culmination of the Red Hood's master plan.
