Let me start by saying I love Jason Todd, he is probably my favourite member of the bat family and his adventures with Starfire and Arsenal were brilliant but I am not going to let that sway my review I promise.

So Red Hood Rebirth #2 hmm I hated it

Nah course I didn’t, its Red Hood!!

This issue begins with a small origin tale of Artemis who was introduced at the end of the last issue and looks to be taking over Starfire’s role in the outlaws, she is drooling over the Bow of Ra which admittedly is pretty impressive but if I’m honest I much prefer her BFA (BIG Frickin Axe).

Jason and Artemis begin their partnership in the same way all good partnerships begin by having a massive MASSIVE brawl before realizing how good they work together, even finding the time for a wee chinwag under a hail of bullets.

While our dynamic duo are busy fighting/making friends the black mask exits stage left with his prize until Jason discovers a previously unknown aeronautical ability which leads to the discovery of…….. Well if I told you that there’s no point reading it is there.

The rapport between Artemis and Jason is excellent with little digs at each other that I hope to continue throughout the run

I do miss Starfire and Arsenal but hopefully, the new team will bring a whole new dynamics to the adventures

Bring on issue 3

 

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
