I am torn on this comic. While it was interesting to see more of Talia's point-of-view in the telling of the tale, we have already read this exact same story in Batman Annual #25. I see no reason to waste an entire issue of a miniseries retelling a story that we have already heard. Talia's motivations for helping Jason were not worth the price of admission. That said, this is a good opening issue for the uninitiated. I am curious to see what, if any, role Talia will play in the remaining issues, given her central role in the opening of the story.

The art was very clean and well done, with good attention to detail. The coloring seemed a little to "digital" for lack of a better word, but I would not mind seeing this art team on some other books. Pablo Raimondi's pencils are certainly attractive.

I might check out issue #2 in the shop just to see if Judd Winick does anything interesting with the story, but this first issue was not worth it for me. If you have read Batman Annual #25, there is absolutely no reason to buy this. If you have not read it, this issue is a good starting point for learning the history of the Red Hood.

Story: 7 (3 if you have read Batman Annual #25)

Art: 7.5

Overall: 7 (5 if you have read Batman Annual #25)


Talia communicates with Jason after he is the Hood in emails, so she should be present throughout the mini.

Batman #663 review

An odd, but still interesting story. Despite some odd wording from Morrison, there are some cool ideas and moments that are packed within the pages. Van Fleet's art is odd, but compliments Morrison's bizarre story.

7.8* out of 10*

Red Hood: The Lost Days #1

A few years ago Jason Todd and Bucky returned from the dead. Since then Bucky has gone from strength to strength as Captain America and is a crucial part of the Marvel Universe. Jason Todd has popped up occasionally and his story is only now being fully told. Hmm.

This issue is mostly a story about Talia al-Ghul and her love for Batman. Her mothering of Jason seems quite at odds with what I've seen of Damien and while the tenderness fits the story it feels a bit odd for the character. Outside of this it's a well written book with a great emotional sting towards the end.

The art is as good as I've seen from Raimondi, capturing faces well in an issue lacking in big action. If the story continues with a similar pattern it will be well served, and Raimondi will find himself quite at home amongst the bat books. He's certainly more to my tastes than any of the artists on the main title since JH Williams.

A good start then, although I'm still irritated by Jason simply waking up one day and climbing out of his grave. Hopefully this will be addressed down the line.
