    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 3, 2017

    I thought this issue read like a brilliant first chapter to an epic novel. The artwork did not distract me from the story at all. I was particularly fascinated with the portrayal of Jason Todd's current psychological state. Since we are dealing with comics, there's not much to go on in terms of the effects of the brain after death. I am not a neurologist but one could speculate that there would be some type of damage towards the brain as a result of asphyxiation. I hope that writer, Judd Winick explores this a little bit more in this mini-series. All in all, a spectacular start to an already addictive story! Read Full Review

    But all that doesn't change the fact that Winick's take on Ra's and Talia is alone worth the price of admission. There's something powerful about the way the two react to the news of Jason's death, and then stumble about in different ways to deal with his resurrection. If you're a fan of the characters, definitely give this book a try. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 5, 2010

    Issue #1 fills in Todd's time with Talia and Ra's al Ghul before regaining his mind in the Lazarus Pit. I've always been a fan of Talia and it's nice to see a side of her here other Batman writers (*cough*Grant Morrison*cough*) seem to have forgotten. It seems the Bat-books can do no wrong lately…well, most of them, anyway (*cough*Grant Morisson*cough*), and I'll be happily waiting to see how this story plays out. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 3, 2010

    This book wasn't supposed to be this good. This book wasn't supposed to make me want to come back for more. Winick and Raimondi, however, had other plans for this book, and I'm glad they did. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jun 6, 2010

    There's something so vaguely familiar about this entire issue, that those who have been reading the Bat titles for the last five years are going to think Red Hood is a reprint of something they've read previously. There are some interesting aspects to the story but it just seems to be one giant clip show with a few new elements thrown in. Those unfamiliar with everything Jason Todd will enjoy this as a way to catch up on their hero/villain history, and it is worth a read. The next couple of issues should reveal more, but for now, Red Hood: The Lost Days #1 is worthy of 3 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jun 9, 2010

    Red Hood The Lost Days #1 was an okay start to this mini-series. If you are a Jason Todd fan you are sure to enjoy this issue. For everyone else this is a mini-series you can pass on as Winnick does not do much to try to make new readers like the star of this mini-series, Jason Todd. For me I am still not sure if I will be picking up the second issue and will probably leave to a last minute decision at my LCS when it comes out. So for Jason Todd fans pick this issue up, for everyone else just skip this mini-series and pick up another comic book. Read Full Review
