Product Description

About the Author

Writer/artist Judd Winick has handled most every major character in the DC Universe including notable runs on GREEN LANTERN, GREEN ARROW, THE OUTSIDERS, JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST and wrote the critically acclaimed animated feature BATMAN: UNDER THE HOOD, based on his run on BATMAN. Winick came to national attention when appearing on MTV's The Real World: San Francisco, his experienced inspired his memoir, the award-winning "Pedro and Me: Friendship, Loss, and What I Learned." His most recent work includes BATWING and CATWOMAN. Born in 1963 in the Year of the Rabbit, Doug Mahnke embarked on a love affair with comics at the age of five, having received a pile of "Spider-Man" issues from a rugby-playing college student named Mike who lived in his basement. A consistent interest in the medium, coupled with some art skill, landed Doug a job drawing comics for Dark Horse at the age of 24 (the date is known precisely, as it occurred just two weeks before he wed his lovely bride). His first gig was illustrating a moody detective one-shot entitled "Homicide," written by John Arcudi. The two went on to collaborate on Dark Horse's "The Mask" and their creator-owned series MAJOR BUMMER, originally published by DC. Since then Doug has worked on a wide variety of titles (including SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL, JLA, BATMAN, TEAM ZERO, SEVEN SOLDIERS: FRANKENSTEIN, BLACK ADAM: THE DARK AGE and STORMWATCH: P.H.D.) with such writers as Joe Kelly, Judd Winick, Chuck Dixon, Grant Morrison, Christos Gage and Ed Brubaker, just to name a few. He resides in the midwest with his wife and six kids, one dog, and a bunny named Suzie.

Format: Paperback
A new vigilante is in town and he's shaking things up for Black Mask, the new crime boss of Gotham. But when Batman steps in he finds that this new guy happens to know lots of things about him, things his enemies don't know, couldn't possibly know. But who could know Batman so well, who could be... under the red hood?

I think most people coming to this book will know who it is under the red hood, so much so the subtitle of the book should be "The Resurrection of Jason Todd". Jason, the second Robin, was famously murdered by the Joker in the book "Batman: A Death in the Family" and became Batman's biggest failure. But hey this is comics, it's all middle story, nothing's forever. Superman died, Green Arrow died, and they're both alive, why not Robin too?

The book is actually pretty good. Besides some shaky dialogue characterising Batman as an extremely grumpy and unlikeable man (the back and forth between him and Nightwing was unlike the way their relationship has largely been written), the plot was full of action and intrigue moving forward at a blistering pace and throwing a few curve balls at the reader. I especially liked the final confrontation between Batman and Red Hood, I think what most people expected to hear wasn't what was said and that's always a good thing, that a writer can surprise like that. Think you know what motivates Jason? Think again. And of course Joker is knee deep in it as usual.

But I think the biggest problem most people have with the book is how Jason was brought back from the grave. It's included here at the end and I have to agree it was a bit convoluted.

Format: Paperback
These stories, running through Batman issues #635-641 and #645-650 are collected, along with Batman issues #617, #618, and Annual #25, as Batman Under The Red Hood TP. The stories in this volume have been collected as
Batman #635-641 - Batman: Under the Hood
Batman #645-650 - Batman: Under the Hood v. 2
Batman #617 and #618 – episodes of Batman Hush Complete TP
Batman Annual #25 is a recapitulation of the opening episodes of Batman Red Hood The Lost Days TP (Batman (DC Comics))

For those like me who are not familiar with him, the Red Hood is revealed here as the resurrected Jason Todd, the formerly dead Robin II. The main story is the escalating battle between the Red Hood and the Black Mask, with Batman caught in the middle. Alfred gets an excellent and substantial role also, as befits his place in the Batman Family. The denouement involves the Red Hood finally revealing himself to Batman and forcing him to choose between saving him or the Joker, and also reveals why Batman cannot kill the Joker.

The story’s epilogue fills in how Jason survived his death due to the ‘Infinite Crisis’, his being discovered by Ras al Ghul, and his eventual freeing by Talia.

This is an interesting, entertaining and still relevant Batman-universe-related story, with excellent artwork

Format: Paperback
I want to start off by saying that I did enjoy most of this graphic novel. I'm a Batman fan and have read what are generally considered the major ones to read. The Long Halloween, Year One, Hush etc...
But Under The Red Hood's main plot twist was an utter let down for me. I won't spoil it, but it sorta ruined the whole story for me.

BUT it's still worth reading. The Characters and artwork as good as they get, including a healthy dose of Nightwing. With that in mind I'm sure that alot of readers will still enjoy the story and disagree with me completely, personal taste and all that jazz. I still think it was worth reading though and I'll probably go through it a few more times yet just for all the better moments in the story.

9/10 for all the good bits
5/10 for the let down story twist

I did not expect to enjoy this that much. I expected to find out what happened to Jason Todd because I knew he died and then I knew he was back as the Red Hood which for those clever clogs out there might seem a touch odd since he had been in the ground for going on a few decades in real time.

I loved this. It couldn't have been better, except for the end which we will get to. The Red Hood is fantastically clever, witty, confident, a good tactician and most of all someone the criminals are terrified of. It is the opposite side of batman. Instead of no killing and stop all crime the Red Hood's philosophy is you can't stop crime and you can't stop people being criminals. So he kills, he tortures and he steals only to sell it to other criminals if he helps his overall cause. He isn't a villain though, he protects children, he stops crime and he hates 'the freaks'. It is a very interesting duality and there is a great sense that Batman is both happy he is back and horrified at his way 'son' has become.

The overall plot arc is very clever and moving. It is well reconned into other plot lines too so what is only one volume becomes a weaved story over multiple years of publications.

Now to the reason it has four stars. This has spoilers. The reason Todd is back is because Superboy punched reality in anger and made Todd come back from the dead. yes that is the best DC could come up with. It was utterly disappointing, i would have preferred nothing at all over that and it just hangs over the story when you think back on it.

I still wholeheartedly recommend this story, it is one of the best but keep in mind that someone at DC needed a serious smack for that last little bit.
