He’s back! The one and only Red Hood — aka Jason Todd — hasn’t been seen in the pages of Batman and Robin since Grant Morrison’s run. Now, as Judd Winick takes over the writing and starts a brand new arc, we delve back into the often problematic Red Hood. His first task? Get the heck out of Arkham Asylum. But how? A great time to pick up this title!

Jason Todd – Batman’s one-time sidekick, currently the anti-hero known as Red Hood – has been imprisoned in Arkham Asylum for the past several months. But after a period of good behavior, will a transfer to a lower-security prison mean reformation for Jason Todd… or is trouble waiting in the wings for Batman and Robin? Don’t miss "The Streets Run Red" part one of three!
DC Comics’ Batman and Robin #23 comes in on Wednesday!
Uncanny X-Force has been hot lately. Issue #8 was Rusty’s pick for Best Book of the Week, and issue #9, though it didn’t share that same honor, made the list of nominees with no problem. This Wednesday sees the next installment in UNCANNY X-FORCE #10. We highlight it here today for two reasons:
- It’s a great place to jump on to an excellent series; and
- You get two comics for the price of one, because Iron Man 2.0 #3 is reprinted in the back of the issue! That’s the issue when Rhodey gets his new armor!

A reporter prepares to release photographs of X-Force killing military personnel leaving the squad with one of the hardest choice of their lives, how to deal with her? Nothing can prepare you for the ending, or the ramifications as X-Force are forced to unite with a former servant of Apocalypse! Ramping up to one of the biggest chapters in X-history, and yes, you’ve heard it before — but nothing will ever be the same.
