Red Hood And The Outlaws #8 Review

“Of course I knew her. Diana of Themyscira. Their champion. The one the rest of the world knew as Wonder Woman. I had never met her. But I had heard the legends. Let’s just say I wasn’t impressed.”

Some comics work best when they’re telling an epic story that is spaced out over several issues. Others can present a self-contained story that focuses on character development and motivations. Red Hood And The Outlaws 8 is a stand alone issue that focuses on Artemis and her quest for the Bow Of Ra. There’s a bar fight, a mythical city and an appearance from Wonder Woman.

Red Hood: The Lost Days Review

Seeing the origin of a character can shed new light on their motivations. In the case of Jason Todd, the journey of how he became Red Hood is a dark and bloody tale. I’m reviewing Red Hood: The Lost Days by Judd Winick. Winick has also written Batman: Under The Red Hood, so his grasp of the character is impressive.

Red Hood And The Outlaws #7 Review

Today’s review is on Red Hood And The Outlaws #7, written by Scott Lobdell and drawn by Mirko Colak. This month’s issue has a slower pace than the Black Mask arc, with the story concentrating on the relationship between Jason Todd and Bizarro. I’ll start by saying I love the cover because it has an Of Mice And Men quality to it, which is a strong influence in the comic.

Batman: Under The Red Hood Review

“You. I’ll be you. The you you’re supposed to be. If you had killed Joker years ago, beyond what happened to me…you know what hell you would have saved this world. But no. His murder is a long list of sane acts you refuse to commit. You never cross that line. But I will.”

It was only a matter of time before I got around to reviewing my favourite graphic novel, and here it is with Batman: Under The Red Hood. Written by Judd Winick and drawn by Jeff Loeb, the story is centred on the conflict between Batman and Red Hood. The comic was adapted into a successful animated film, but there’s something more visceral about seeing it on the page.

Red Hood And The Outlaws #6 Review

“I didn’t ask you to be Robin because I wanted someone perfect. I wanted someone who can do their best. Who can learn from their mistakes. Someone who makes me a better person just by being with them.” – Batman

Today, I’m reviewing my favourite comic with Red Hood And The Outlaws #6, written by Scott Lobdell. For those who haven’t been following the series, Jason Todd has been working to bring down Black Mask. In the last issue, Black Mask took control of Bizarro by linking their minds together with a virus. Artemis is on the scene and she’s battling with Bizzaro while Jason is fighting Black Mask.

As The Pop Culture Playlist was so well received last week, I’m going to turn it into a regular segment. This week, I’m putting the spotlight on Red Hood with a playlist that tells the story of his relationship with Batman and how he’ll always do what he thinks is right.

Resurrection And Redemption: The Story Of Jason Todd

The world of Batman is one of the most well known in popular culture, from his Rogue Gallery to his gadgets. There are people within it who walk the same path and there are those who fight against it. Red Hood is someone who exists somewhere in between. For the character spotlight today I’ll be focusing on Jason Todd and why he is the most human character I’ve ever encountered.

Batman: Under The Red Hood Movie Review

As this blog becomes more active I’ll be posting different reviews of comics and movies. To start off with I’d like to review one of my favourite animated movies, Batman: Under The Red Hood. Having come out in 2010, it became the highest rated direct-to-video Batman film until the release of the The Dark Knight Returns in 2012.  Jason Todd is my favourite comic character, so it was great to see his story told faithfully and maturely in this film.
