Jason Todd – Batman’s one-time sidekick, currently the anti-hero known as Red Hood – has been imprisoned in Arkham Asylum for the past several months. But after a period of good behavior, will a transfer to a lower-security prison mean reformation for Jason Todd… or is trouble waiting in the wings for Batman and Robin?

Don’t miss “The Streets Run Red” part one of three!

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Can I just say I am not a fan of March’s art? It’s really awful.

  2. While I wouldn’t say it’s “awful”, I’m not a fan. It seems that he’s on EVERY bat-book, even though I cannot recall fans clammerin’ for more Guillem….

  3. This cover has a Quitely vibe to it. But then you see the long chin Dick has and I realize it’s March.

    I’m not a fan of Winick but hopefully he wins me over. 

  4. It’s a Quitely vibe because it’s a direct tribute to the B&R Issue #1 cover. March even wrote “After Quitely” under his signature.

    Can I say I absolutely love the cover, and while I plan on not following the Winick arc I’m buying this issue just for the cover? I wish they’d followed the theme and done tributes to the whole first arc.

  5. Winick is awesome! I love that guy. Iam not sure about March. Jason Todd looks like he has big boobs.

  6. @AmirCat  I agree 100% on Winick.  This should be fun regardless.

  7. I’d dropped Batman and Robin, but I’m back on for a Judd Winnicj Red Hood story. I love the Under the Hood arc, so this was a definate get. I’m not a huge fan of this new Red Hood costume though.

  8. Reminds me of Racer X.

  9. Todd fighting B&R. Nice to see they’ve run out of new ideas for the title before the two year mark.

  10. Jumping on AGAIN because of how much I enjoyed Generation Lost.

  11. Is it really going to be Jason Todd? My prediction is that Jason Todd is the new Wingman, this is some other nut job from Arkham High security, maybe the Joker.

  12. Winnick on Batman is usually somewhat decent… I can’t stand March though.  He’s the reason why I dropped Sirens!

  13. @Elementaljj  If it’s Winick writing, it’s Jason Todd.

  14. from what i have seen from March i like what he does. It’s kind of a lost western manga style

  15. I left this book with Morrison, but with Greg Tocchini on the horizon I’m getting back on board! I really hope the writing doesn’t disappoint.

  16. What happened to Tomasi and Gleason? Was really hoping to keep them on a long run just like GL had with them.

  17. I’m in love with this Cover and March is a good artist when it comes to a batman book. I’m ready to give this a try.

  18. That cover…Red Hood looks like he has a potbelly crotch or something.

    I like March’s art sometimes. Other times, it’s just weird.

  19. @rift1128  I’m sitting it out until Tomasi returns. He is returning, right???

  20. About time I start reading this again.

  21. @Hailscott well David Hines is listed as the writer for August so…maybe not. Which sucks, but at least I’ll be able to cut down a book.

  22. I really like Winick and March, so I’m excited for this.

  23. Morrison’s Red Hood arc was easily my least favorite of the series but I haven’t read Winnick’s take on the character so maybe I’ll be surprised.  I like Guillem March OK, no problems there.

  24. @therodfather Huh, it does say ‘After Quitely’. Good catch

    I’ve grown to like March over the years. His work on Gotham City Sirens I thought was too generic save for the buxom (and I do mean buxon) of cheesecake ladies all over the place. But his covers have been dynamite and his run on Azarel was pretty damn good. Hopefully we get some good March here. 

  25. Should’ve kept Tomasi on this, and put Winick on Daniel’s book. The Batbooks have been declining ever since Bruce came back. Most are still good, but not as good. 

  26. Hopefully he gets Damian right.

  27. I’m done after this arc.  I don’t enjoy anything Hine does.

  28. I’m giving it a shot.

  29. What about Tomasi and Gleason?, Oh boy …….I´ll drop this one

  30. I just want one “I did your mom” joke from Jason to Damian

  31. @MoniBolis: HAHAHA!! That’d be amazing. It is Winick so let’s cross our fingers. 

  32. @MoniBolis 

    I certainly don’t think they were on to anything, but I’ve always liked the conspiracy theorists who think Jason is Damian’s real father. I feel like that would have been a cool twist if they’d played it out.

  33. @MoniBolis: You almost got that with Jason asking Bruce about Talia.

    This was a disappointment for me if I’m honest. Never been a fan of Winick’s superhero stuff but nothing about this screamed that he’s a great writer for Jason Todd. Ultimately a generic issue with two great artists but I wanted more of March damnit!

    3/5 (Being generious there) 

  34. Ya had me Winick. Ya had me until the last panel when Lion-O and Cheetara showed up. That was a big “Heh?”. No worries though. I still love ya.

    Lookin forward to #24.

  35. grant morrison is hard to replace

  36. When did Jason Todd turn into a redhead?

  37. Finally there’s a writer on this book that I like. I really loved this issue. I really got a feeling of Rorschach in prison.  But it wasn’t too heavy handed, and it didn’t last too long.

    @Bansidhewail In one of his appearances he mentioned that Bruce made him dye his hair to look more like Dick.

  38. @bansidhewail  When Jason Todd originally appeared pre-CRISIS he was a redhead who dyed his hair to become Robin. That got retconned out post-CRISIS but Grant Morrison brought it back in the second arc of this series.

  39. I loved this comic. Art and writing both were incredible, IMO. I really enjoy the way Winick writes villains–like human beings who can actually be kind of funny. He brings some Marvel into the DCU that way.

  40. Jason Todd needs his own book …
