Any Red Hood Comics where he is the main character?

#1 Posted by TheOnlyRedHood (14 posts) - - Show Bio

hey i'm new to Comic Vine and sort of new to comics as well.

I've been reading Batman and Deadpool mostly, but Jason Todd/Red Hood has really grown on me as an awesome character. Upon some research to see if there are any Red Hood focused comics.. i only found "Red Hood And The Outlaws" which I guess started back in Sept. 2011 and is only around issue 9 or 10. Can't really find any Red Hood focused comics.. or if there are even going to be any?

I know he's more of an antihero from what I understand.. but would love to see a series where he is the main focus.

with that being said... are there any?

i will read Red Hood and the Outlaws but want to know if anyone could give me a series where Jason Todd as the Red Hood is a focus.

and with THAT being said.. are there any Jason Todd comics I should read in general?

thanks in advance :D

I enjoyed Lost Days which is a focus on him, Battle For the Cowl, which he is a big part in and obviously his big one being Under the Red Hood story arc.

Oh, and avoid both Grant Morrison's and Judd Winick's run on him through Batman and Robin.

@Z3RO180: I like Morrison's BnR too. But as a Red Hood fan I was appalled by his take on Jason Todd and if you liked his take then good for you. Most RH fans I know do not.

@god_spawn: My only clypes about morrison red hood was Jasons first costume i did not like the cap and that tube thing he had on his head. Also his side kick scarlet i thought was a nice touch but need a lot more work other than that BnR was awesome im still waiting on volumes 2 and 3 to come throo in the post.

Under the Red Hood, and Red Hood and the Outlaws is all I dare suggest.

There was this other short series, where Jason teamed up with Kyle Rayner and Donna Troy and they traveled the multiverse...but the name escapes me.

@TheOnlyRedHood: Under the hood, Lost Days, and Maybe Battle for the cowl. There the only series that I can recommend because of how great they are. He had a some crossovers with teen titans, the outsiders and one with green arrow. Jason's portrayal in batman and robin was really shooty at best. Morrison didn't have a good grasp on the jason character, his problem was mashing up different versions of jason from different ages of comics. Countdown to infinite crises was okay but just okay. I think the first three i listed are in continuity. the batman and robin story i think is not in continuity. because there is no mention to his sidekick or mention of him going to jail in the new 52.

@god_spawn: Grant Morrison did write him horribly BUT Judd Winick's issues of BAtman and Robin werent 1/2 bad. The biggest detriment to the story was the ever shifting art and the fact that it was RIGHT before the New 52 so it almost felt a bit pointless/

That's pretty much why I would tell anyone to avoid it. It wasn't as good as Winick's first take, but still.
