there's going to be another one with more red

  • John Lennon: What's your favorite idea? Mine is being creative.
  • Ringo Starr: How do you get that idea?
  • John: I just try to think creatively. Now, when you look at this apple, tell me, please: what do you see?
  • Paul McCartney: It's just a boring old apple.
  • John: Maybe to you, but not to me. I see a silly face!
  • Ringo: Woah!
  • John: Walking along and smiling at me.
  • Paul: I don't see what you mean.
  • John: 'Cause you're not thinking creatively! So take a look at my hair. I use my hair to express myself.
  • George Harrison: That sounds really boring.
  • John: I use my hair to express myself. Now, when you stare at the clouds in the sky, don't you find it exciting?
  • Threetles: No.
  • John: Come on, take another look!
  • Threetles: Oh wait! I can see a hat, I can see a cat, I can see a man with a baseball bat! I can see a dog, I can see a frog, I can see a ladder leaning on a log!
  • John: Think you're getting the hang of it now -- using your minds to have a good time.
  • Ringo: I might paint a picture of a clown.
  • John: Woah, there, friend. You might need to slow down.
  • John: Here's another good tip of how to be a creative whiz kid. Go and collect some leaves and sticks and arrange them into your favorite color.
  • George: Blue!
  • Paul: Red!
  • Ringo: Green!
  • John: Green is not a creative color. There's one more thing that you need to know, before you let your creativity flow. Listen to your heart, listen to the rain, listen to the voices in your brain. Come on guys, let's get creative!
  • Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: *is created*
  • John Lennon: Now let's all agree to never be creative again.

Ooh, cool. I’d like red ones, but I’d be a Jedi, so I’d probably switch to a less “evil” color to avoid any confusion :P

ah screw it, go red, break with tradition! theres gotta be a way of making red look ‘good’, some kinda hilt change or tint to it or just marked deviation from societal norms - YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR LIGHTSABER COLOUR, DON’T CAVE TO WHAT THEY SAY YOUR COLOUR HAS TO MEAN ABOUT YOU

So I found your blog recently and I absolutely love it. It's amazing I was wondering if you could possible give some details on Jason Todd's personality and stuff. Also what comics of Jason would be good to read. Like ones that keep his character correct and such. Thanks.

I’ve actually gotten this question like 5 times and I apologize for taking so long.  I wanted to go back an read all the Jason arcs before addressing this, because it’s been a while since I read some of them.  Also, I’ll address Jason’s personality in another meta (which I also have multiple questions for) because that’s going to be a long rant.

Here are my suggestions for Jason Todd reading.  For the most part this is going to be Post-Crisis and Pre-Flashpoint, AKA- the ‘modern age’ continuity.  

Batman 408 - 429 & Batman Annual 12 is Jason’s run as Robin in the Batman comics.  Honestly all of this is pretty good, but I’m going to pick out the best (in my opinion).

Batman 408 & 409
This is where Jason Todd is introduced, he steals the Batmobile’s wheels and gives Batman a bunch of attitude.  Batman and Jason come to an agreement: Batman wont turn Jason in to the social workers if he starts attending a local boy’s school ran by a woman who calls herself Ma Gunn.  Ma Gunn’s school turns out to be a school for crime, and Batman and Jason work together to take her down.  At the end, Batman decides to take Jason home with him.

Batman 410 & 411
These are the Two-Face issues, who I am already biased in favor of because he’s one of my favorite rogues.  Batman and Robin go up against Two-Face, and Jason finds out that Two-Face murdered his father.

Batman 416
This is the issue where Nightwing is reintroduced.  Dick is annoyed that Bruce took in Jason and made him Robin, after having fired Dick for getting shot up by the Joker.  This is actually one of my all-time favorite issues, because there’s a lot of emotional moments between Bruce and Dick, and Dick also kicks some bad-guy butt with Jason at his side.

Batman 422
We see a lot of that “darker” aspect of Jason that is referenced later on in this issue.  From Batman having to physically retrain Robin to keep him from beating a guy excessively, to him outright telling Batman that he thinks sometimes killing is justified it if puts a mad dog down.

Batman 424 & 425

This is the Felipe Garzonas arc, which I have referenced many times before and will continue to reference to my dying day.  I love this arc, I’ll admit it, it’s my absolute favorite couple of issues for Jason.  Jason gets frustrated that a rapist, Felipe Garzonas, managed to worm his way out of jail.  After Felipe’s victim is found hanged, Jason takes matters into his own hands and kills him.  The following issue, 425, deals with the aftermath of that, and the consequences of Jason’s actions.  These events are not referenced nearly enough once Jason comes back from the grave, if you ask me.

Batman 426-429
Actually not super fond of these ones, but being that it is the arc where Jason dies, it’s definitely something that needs to be read.  Jason goes on a search for his real mother, the Joker gets involved, and the second Robin is put to rest.

New Teen Titans vol2 20-13 (roughly)
This is the arc where Jason teems up with the Teen Titans.  It has some good moments, such as Jason having to deal with everyone expecting him to be Dick Grayson.  I did a much longer meta on it [HERE].

Batman 636-641 & 645-650 & Batman Annual 25
This is the Under the Hood arc, which many people know thanks to the movie of a similar name.  Jason returns to Gotham to get revenge and impose his own style of vigilante justice.  Batman Annual 25 deals with the details of Jason’s return.  All of this is good.

Red Hood: Lost Days
This is a retcon/expansion on Batman Annual 25, giving more details into the nature of Jason’s return and what happened between that and Under the Hood.  Personally, I prefer this to Batman Annual 25.  They’re both written by Judd Winick, so I typically consider Lost Days to be him tweaking his own canon.

Teen Titans vol3 29
Jason beats the ever loving shit out of Tim Drake.  He breaks into Titans Tower in a Robin suit (plus pants because he’s obviously too lazy to shave).  This is a good issue for establishing what Jason and Tim’s relationship is really like in canon.  They don’t like each other.  Jason hates Tim, even more than the others, and Tim has long grown out of the “Robin hero worship” phase. 

Green Arrow 69-72
Okay, this is another one of my favs.  Green Arrow and Batman teem up in Star City because Brick and Red Hood are causing mischief.  The catch?  The switch villains.  Batman ends up fighting Brick while Green Arrow fights Red Hood.  And it is glorious.

And those are my recommended arcs for Jason Todd.  Theres a few decent ones I didn’t go over here, like Batman: The Cult, Outsiders 44-46, Batman and Robin 23-25, and Li’l Gotham.  These are all varying degrees of ‘not bad’ for me, though some people really like them. (Despite liking Winick’s work on Jason Todd, I’m still not particularly fond of Jason Todd in Batman and Robin, even when Winick is the writer.  I still see too much of Morrison’s influence, but that’s just me.  Other JT fans really enjoy this arc, it’s a matter of preference).

There are a few Jason comics which are just plain bad, though.  I hesitate to say “don’t read these”, because in some cases I like the stories and other characters, I just hate the way Jason is written.  So the Jason portrayals to avoid are:

  • Robin vol2 182-183
  • Nightwing: Brothers in Blood
  • Battle for the Cowl
  • Batman and Robin 1-6 (roughly)
  • Red Hood and the Outlaws (and basically anything New 52, lets be honest)

Like I said, not all of these comics are horrible in and of themselves, but the Jason in all of them is.

Ashey, in the pic of Louis from last night's concert after he changed into Harry's shirt there's one where you can see a little bit of his "it is what it is tattoo". I see a red mark near the end of the writing. Is that just acne?

Another day another game of “acne or lovebite?”

Hmmm. I don’t know.
