So Talia AGhul resurrected Jason. Ok.

I find it interesting that this whole 0 issue is simply a mild riff on Starlin’s Death in The Family. Rather than being a fresher take on Jason’s death by Joker. You really already know this story if you’ve read Starlin’s work.

Credit due…It’s well done, to a point. However, the art is quite inconsistent–which I should expect with apparently 3 different people on art.

THe last few pages told from the Joker’s perspective are fun, as is the voice that Lobdell creates for Jason as he narrates his back story.

I’ve only read one other issue of Red Hood, but it seems quite clear that Lobdell is very good at writing Jason Todd. I might go pick up the back issues.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 3 - Good


  1. This doesn’t make the story of Jason Todd anymore interesting in the New 52 and it just keeps peeing on the ashes of the continuity of the DCU. Flashpoint has turned into the “Dallas: No Pam it’s a dream Bobby isn’t dead” version of the comic book universe. Some of the truly good writing like “The Killing Joke” and “Identity Crisis” just gets thrown away like it wasn’t good source material. While I thought the whole original Jason Todd reboot was a little silly in the first place it was at least well written and psychologically intriguing but now this version is just goofy and campy.

  2. No truly weird complications; just a solid story settling Jason Todd’s existence and past in the New 52. I dig it.
