if you don't know, now you know- Red Hood: The Lost Days / Batman Under the Red Hood

10:29 AM

DCU: The Source just announced a 6-ish mini-- Red Hood: The Lost Days-- to coincide with the next animated flick set to hit this Summer- Batman Under the Red Hood.  Both stories are masterminded by SF's own, Judd Winick and for anyone that read the original story by Winick & Doug Mahnke (with fab covers by Jock) is probably going bananas like I am over this news.

Judd Winick states, “I’m thrilled to return to this character, and it’s both a joy and challenge to tackle this new story. LOST DAYS tracks the time from the Red Hood’s rebirth to his return to Gotham. In it, we get to understand this anti-hero in a new way. I think it explains both how he’s sympathetic, and an unrepentant monster. He’s a wonderfully complex character, and I hope this adds some even greater depth to his mythology.”

I expect this this mini to carry over and dive deeper into the story that capped off the series in Batman annual# 25, which is simply one of those classic reads that you can't help but re-read and urge others to jump into. 

And as for the flick-- how can you not salivate like Cujo at experiencing some of the Death in the Family story threads animated?!?!  Yes indeed.  DC Animated is really doing wonders for diehard fans and casual readers by weaving these classic tales into a singular story. For more tasty deets check the Under the Red Hood first look that was included in the spectacular Justice League Crisis on two Earths DVD.
