    1. As someone who has written a serialized story that solicited input from the reading public to determine the course of the plot see the greatest adventure tale ever told, The Chronicle of Heloise Grimple , I fully appreciate the gimmick of canvassing readers to help shape a story On the other hand, there s something so horrifically impersonal about the idea of comic readers calling a 900 number to weigh in on whether Robin Jason Todd should live or die as opposed to their usual reason for calling [...]


    2. Treasure of the Rubbermaids 8 Dial 1 900 For MurderThe on going discoveries of priceless books and comics found in a stack of Rubbermaid containers previously stored and forgotten at my parent s house and untouched for almost 20 years Thanks to my father dumping them back on me, I now spend my spare time unearthing lost treasures from their plastic depths The Robin character is something that has been a problem for Batman stories since comics matured As Batman was turned into an increasingly gri [...]


    3. Gayness he said, is built into Batman I m not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay There s just no denying it Obviously as a fictional character he s intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay I think that s why people like it All these women fancy him He doesn t care he s interested in hanging out with the old guy and the kid Grant Morrison on Batman quote took from The Caped Crusade Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture pg 277 Befor [...]


    4. This best selling 1980s graphic novel let the readers decide if the second Robin, Jason Todd, would live or die after an explosion In this late 80s graphic novel there s an actual copy of the advertisement and the 900 number to call to decide upon the fate of the Boy Wonder The fans decided they didn t like Jason Todd much and voted to kill him and no that isn t a spoiler based on the title and cover Apparently the vote was close Over 10,000 votes were cast, with the final vote being 5,343 votes [...]


    5. SPOILERSJoker busts out of Arkham Asylum the place is useless, really and heads to the Middle East to sell a cruise missile he s had in storage, and Batman follows to stop him Meanwhile Jason Todd aka Robin is working through some emotional issues and finds out that the woman he thought was his mother wasn t his biological mother so he sets off to track down his real mum.I know this book is always on peoples lists of must read Batman stories but, besides Jason s death, there really isn t anythin [...]


    6. I ve always enjoyed this story and how truly insane the Joker really is I grew up on the late 70 s and early 80 s comics and even tho the art is nowhere near where it is today, I just love the nostalgic feel they have These oldies but goodies will always have a place in my heart When I was little, my grandfather, Papps God rest his soul , took me and my brother every Friday to the comic book store, without fail, and bought us whatever we wanted So every time I reread one of these stories, I have [...]


    7. I first knew about Jason Todd through the story Under the Hood written by Judd Winick which turned out to be his resurrection story I watched the animation film with Supernatural s Jensen Ackles as Todd s voice actor and then I read the collected edition a few months after To explain briefly, Jason Todd was the second Robin who succeeded Dick Grayson shortly after the latter quit and then joined the Teen Titans instead Bruce Wayne first met Jason in the infamous Crime Alley when he was on patrol [...]


    8. To begin, I ll talk about what I enjoyed about this comic.I loved the way Batman is generally concerned for Jason Todd Children should not be forced to grow up so quickly, as Todd had to He was never given the time to deal with the death of his loved ones and therefore has much anger within him Jason becomes cruel to criminals, rather than merciful which ultimately leads to Batman forcing him to take a leave of absence.Now, Todd is not only facing the loss of his family but also is facing the lo [...]


    9. This left a sour taste I just don t feel right about Jason Todd s death It doesn t feel justified Jason is reckless and nihilistic following his parents death, so Bats puts him on the bench Soon after, though, Jason learns that his birth mother is alive, and he s narrowed it down to three women living in Lebanon, Israel and Ethiopia The Joker is raided and he flees toyou guessed itLebanon, to sell a cruise missile to some Shiite terrorists And Bats follows the Joker not knowing Jason is already [...]


    10. My co worker lent this to me with the Batman Hush graphic novels and told me to read this first I followed his suggestion and will admit that knowing this background information helped me to understand Hush However, I would be hard pressed to find another reason to read this comic, other than the obvious one to come to understand why and how Robin died.As for reasons not to read this comic, a few immediately jump to mind The illustration is dated and unimpressive, the plot is contrived, and at p [...]


    11. I didn t know Tim Drake was named after Tim Burton I m not sure how I feel about that I guess you learn something new every day.Anyway, I love Tim He s so adorable and lovable just as the writers intended for him to be The art is a little off and the writing is a little cheesy, but that s what you should expect from these older comics The 5 stars are for the story of course the end of Jason Todd as Robin and the beginning of Tim Drake This is one of the greatest stories in all of Batman history [...]


    12. This was such an utter disappointment, I can t even put into words everything that was wrong with this story I was going to give it two stars because I did enjoy the first half of it but it honestly doesn t even deserve that The Joker becomes a UN AMBASSADOR FOR IRAN, let that sink in for a moment The writing was abysmal and the art was extremely basic I m not sure why this has been added to so many must read lists.


    13. You can find my review on our blog by clicking here.Let s cut to the chase If the cover of this trade paperback doesn t single handedly give away one of the biggest events in Batman s history, then something s wrong Aside from the fact that Batman A Death in the Family is considered to be one of the most important reads for comic fans and that the death of a Robin is seldom tragic, this volume was a stunning disappointment I ll be frank, I jumped into the volume without prior knowledge of the st [...]


    14. Malpractice, kiddie porn, international terrorism Oh My Or perhaps should I say, Great Scott While silly schemes skullduggery evidenced in the 1960 s led Adam West TV serials might have merited such a silly expletives, a proper exclamation in A Death in the Family would probably be, Oh F Not only are we graced with a hard story but a particularly dark one And this narrative is darker than the darkest of freshly laid down asphalts Again we are visited by the eternal Batman and his typical proteg [...]


    15. As someone who jumped on board with Batman comics during DC s New 52 , this certainly is a must red for the new Red Hood and the Outlaws storyline I have always known about the general premise of the A Death in the Family before reading it, but it ended up liking it much better than I predicted Sure, you can definitely tell that this comic came out in the 80s with it s format and artwork, but it really is a great look at Jason Todd, and reflects to a fantastic degree who he was and what he has b [...]


    16. My first mmm Comic Yes Well, my best friend is a know it all when it comes to batman and sent me a bunch of Batman comics straight from Peru So, being this the first time reading comics I have to say i enjoyed it a lot, enough to do it again I love how the story develops and you can not really infer as you would on a regular book not sure if this is because i had no previous knowledge when i read it May be At the end i had strong feelings about Robin, I just didn t like the kid He sounds a lot l [...]


    17. This is one of those classic stories I never got around to reading, or had much interest in until lately I had no real connection to Jason Todd except from the Under the Red Hood stories and the movie While reading this book, I wasn t sold on Jason as a likable character, though his quest was sympathatic The Joker is off the wall throughout, even if the end twist is pretty darn stupid The real story, Jason Todd s search and end, are very well told and I like the Middle Eastern setting for it The [...]


    18. Amazing These books that I ve read long ago but have never reviewed, or becoming and frequent, and its always the really good ones, what s wrong with me So to put this short, this is definitely in my top 5 favourite batman stories Of course it does mark a sad moment in batman comic history, but symbolises one of batmans failures, and proves that even batman can t always save the day Honestly a very moving story, and one every batman fan has to read


    19. I was pleasantly surprised by this one Though I m a Robin fan, I ve never been particularly intersted in Jason Todd I m glad I finally got around to reading this though I thought it was really well done Jason is so different from Dick Grayson or Tim Drake and Stephanie Brown for that matter His character brings out a different side to Batman This has made me want to do some Jason Todd reading.


    20. WOW What a great Batman series of comics I found this to be a great telling of Jason Todd and Bruce Wayne s relationship The story was amazing and so was the art Definitely a must read for any batman fan.




    21. Wow I am very impressed at how high in quality A Death in the Family turned out to be I ll be honest, the stigma of this graphic novel being a bit aged initially turned me off to the idea that it could be as worthwhile as some of the contemporary graphic novels I ve read before I figured, at most, I would get a decent story out of it and not much Boy, was I wrong A Death in the Family is by and large one of the best written and most enthralling Batman graphic novels I have read thus far, easily [...]


    22. I did put off reading this one for a while because i just thought it would be too much angst, i mean i know it s batman and angst is his middle name but there is a limit, however this at points is quite campy very 60 s tv batman, like joker raiding his closet for his sunglasses and the delivery of his jokes are so deadpan they re spot on his character in this is just balls to wall crazy The plot you ve just gotta go with it, yeah it was mucho coincidental everyone ends up in the middle east toge [...]


    23. Only notable for the death of Jason Todd at the hands of the Joker No, wait back up the Joker beat the living shit out of Jason Todd, that s true, but it was the fanboys, by way of votes by telephone, who actually sealed the fate of Batman s sidekick Otherwise, we ve got the Joker involved in a plot to sell weapons to people who really shouldn t have any Jason Todd out lookin for his real ma , and he s narrowed down his search to three final suspects candidates he ends up finding her, but she be [...]


    24. How to spot a dismal Batman book a Jason Todd is Robin, and or b Superman makes an appearance.What saves it is the obvious that Jason Todd bites it , but it s still pretty bad The writing is mediocre, and the art well, thank god for costumes, because otherwise everyone looks pretty much the same Bruce Wayne and Jason Todd are nearly indistinguishable a problem because Todd isn t supposed to look 35 years old and they blend in with every other male face drawn.Favorite moment Batman and Robin are [...]


    25. So this collects the ultimate moment in Batman, where things got real it shows that it wasn t just a grown, rich man and little boy in tights fighting crime It shows that Batman is human, the situations are dangerous, life threatening, and the Joker is not to be messed with So this is one of the earliest comics of Batman I read, and I can t help but notice the art See in the current Batman books I have, the art is dark, atmospheric it s Batman s style, and it fits him Here though, the art is lig [...]


    26. 3.5 I am torn on A Death in the Family I absolutely loved the first half of this comic that focuses on the death of Jason Todd, but I was not into the Titans sections, even though I realize they are connected I ve never been a fan of Jason Todd, and I found myself feeling far sympathetic to Bruce s feelings throughout, even though, frankly, Jason was a dick He is no Dick Grayson, and I realize I have to try and not compare them, but I thought Jason Todd s death was really well done Joker s outf [...]


    27. I understand the historical importance of this book, but it s deeply bizarre The plot is laughably strung together, Batman and Robin seem like little than heavy handed buffoons, The Joker is not really The Jokerd Robin speaks Farsi Jason Todd, the boy caught stealing Batman s tires a year ago somehow became fluent in FARSI The waves of stupidity become big enough to ride safely on once the Ayatollah shows up and mutaschio d Superman saves the UN Counsel oh, but not really see bombs , but even t [...]


    28. Wow Totally forgot how lame this is Maybe I m being too hard on it, butis book sucked Robin gets killed in ONE page, only throws one punch, and the whole affair has some pretty weak build up Batman and Robin fighting in the middle east I realize it s a comic, but its pretty hard to suspend ANY disbelief when BR are in full costume, running around the desert punching Arabs Joker becomes a member of the UN It is understandable that they want to put Batman at odds with himself ie wanting revenge vs [...]
