TITLE: Batman – One Bad Day: The Penguin #1
AUTHOR: John Ridley
ARTISTS: Giuseppe Camuncoli, Cam Smith, Arif Prianto (Colorist), Rob Leigh (Letterer)
RELEASED: October 18, 2022

This one wasn’t quite as gripping as the Riddler or Two-Face issues. If you’re looking for something with more of a character-driven punch, I’d recommend Joker’s Asylum: Penguin #1 or Penguin: Pain and Predjudice.
Still, John Ridley is a respectable choice to take on the Penguin, as he excels at grounded, street-level stories. Camuncoli, Smith, and Prianto also turn in a respectable artistic performance. It’s not that this is a bad issue, per se. But it does underachieve compared to its predecessors.
