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.
