Timothy Green II's artwork somehow works a lot better in this issue than it did during the Starfire arc. Perhaps it's just the outer space stuff Green wasn't suited for, and the more street level stuff here, combined with the twisted nature of The Joker, that makes his art surprisingly effective. Green definitely draws one of the more eerie new Jokers.
We really get to see how far the team has come in these past 15 issues, Starfire has opened up a lot more, and taken interest in Roy Harper for reasons beyond those sexual. She's a much less stiff and formal character than she was at the beginning, and her relationship with Roy is developing into a genuine one.
But let's face it, most of this issue is about Red Hood in Gotham as he deals with the reappearance of The Joker in the process of Death of the Family. The Joker has cooked up a BRILLIANT scheme to rope Jason into this story that forces him a lot more than the others. It's interesting how some people he laid out traps and waited for them to be sprung, others he forcibly coerced into his hands, and still others were just grabbed and pulled unwillingly into his clutches. Jason is in the last group, and the way he's backed right into Joker's hands ties deeply into some of the character development he's had across the first year, and deep ties to his past.
One thing this tie-in does that none of the others do is really emphasize the question "does Joker REALLY know who they are, or is he bluffing?" Even though the warehouse where this all takes place is a little dull, he's laid out careful clues to Jason's past that really gnaw at him. But when you consider that The Joker claims responsibility as an architect for Jason Todd's origin, Red Hood's identity is the one he should be most likely to know. But Jason raises a good and intriguing point. He claims to know their identities AND his traps play around heavily with aspects of their identities; yet never once does he go to confirm it. He always calls them by their superhero names, he didn't even refer to Barbara's mom as Batgirl's mom. Is it just the way he is, or is there something more to it?
In Conclusion: 4/5
Timothy Green II's artwork was a really negative point for some of the previous issues, but I think it's mostly a positive here. One of the big problems in this issue is the way Red Hood's battleground is so ordinary, just a dull concrete building that could be literally anywhere. The rest of the family have had far more elaborately decorated deathtraps, even if you include the brilliant nods to Jason's origin to convince him Joker is speaking the truth. Also, why did he drop Jason with Tim? What's different about them that lets them share a trap, when the others were so personalized?
