DC reveals first look at Batman: White Knight Presents: Red Hood

DC Comics-Con’s Batman White Knight is one of my favorite little corners of DC Comics Con, and now it’s expanding again. Just as Batman: Beyond the White Knight has been teased, DC is releasing a new series called Batman: White Knight Presents: Red Hood that, as its title suggests, brings Jason Todd back into the spotlight. He won’t be alone though, as he’ll have his own Robin fighting alongside him, and will co-write the miniseries Sean Murphy and Clay McCormack (Bloody Hare) with artwork by Simon de Meo (Future Condition: Harley Quinn) and Dave Stewart (Batman) colors ).

As fans of Beyond The White Knight saw, Jason and Bruce Wayne had a reconciliation of sorts before Bruce got out of prison in an effort to stop Derek Powers. Jason will take his own battle to Powers, and will revisit his past a little to find an ally he thinks can help turn the tide against Gotham’s greatest threat.

“People have been asking me for years about Jason Todd in the world of White Knight,” Sean Murphy said. “We try to reinvent Jason in the post-post timeline, while honoring what made him so compelling to readers in the first place. In Batman: White Knight Presents: Red Hood, there is definitely a grudge between Jason and Grayson and Batman’s two eldest sons who will have to find ways to put their differences behind them from in order to save Bruce.”

“It gives me great pleasure to help form the White Knight realm alongside two masters like Sean and Simon,” said Clay McCormack. “Jason’s road is pretty tough, regardless of the universe, and we definitely put him in the competition here. He’s a hot head with a Batman-sized chip on his shoulder, so giving him a newbie with a brighter look at Batman creates a frustrating contrast for Jason, and a lot of fun for the reader.” “.

Bruce Wayne is Batman. Four words saved Jason’s life and ruined his future forever. Banished by his mentor and destroyed by the Joker, the former Robin is left to become something different, something stronger, a relentless force for justice in the city… Red Hood! With no one to answer for, he walks the dangerous line between hero and villain. This was until he meets Gan, a local girl from East Backport who needs his help to save her neighborhood from a super criminal who is terrorizing her citizens. And she’s willing to fight on his side, no matter what!

“Working with Sean and Clay is really inspiring, and working with two professionals like them can only help improve my work,” Simone Di Meo said. “Creating a new Robin is a really exciting thing to work on, the emotion when making choices and the relationship with Jason. I can’t wait for the fans to see her.”
