In Red Hood & The Outlaws #26, Jason Todd, Red Hood gets a brand new look, courtesy of Pete Woods, away from his iconic full-face helmet. The cover gave us our first shadowy glimpse.
With the alternate cover by Yasmine Putri showing the ‘Red Hood No More’ style image.
While the DC Icons cover to Red Hood & The Outlaws #27 plays more peekaboo.
But today’s DC Nation #3 spends pages and pages going through Pete Woods’ designs – probably more publicity than this comic has had in its history. Woods talks about the change, referring to his writer on the book, Scott Lobdell.
Scott wanted to go in a much more crazy direction. I was still stuck in the past, while Scott was looking forward a bit. I realized I had to push even further away from the current look…. Scott wanted to take the helmet away and be much more in-your-face, so we dropped the helmet completely. I liked the idea of keeping his old domino mask-I wanted to make sure he looked like Jason Todd without taking everything away.
While also showing the final design…
DC Nation #3 is published today. Red Hood & The Outlaws #26 in September.
