So I was fairly enjoying RHO until the whole erasing of Jason Todd's memories story and dropped the book, but with Scott Lobdell returning I think I might give this series another shot. I'm a big fan of the team's dynamic and the history behind the characters. I'm really hoping it has a soft relaunch when he returns to the book. Is anyone currently reading this book or considering picking it back up?
He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
I started picking it up in trades. Had been turned off by the Starfire portrayal but they really did good with her in second trade. Currently digging Red Hood in Eternal and will be picking up volume 3 and 4 at my LCS's half off trade sale.
Sorry guys, but i love this series.. there may be a few bumps in the road.. but the characters are great.. their interaction together perfect. the over sexualisation does not bother me, it does nothing for me though

This book is ok. I got the first two trades for 4$ each, so I can't complain.
I'm behind about 10 issues, but maybe I'll get caught up again.
My one complaint about it, isn't the overall quality - it's the fact that this book has some of the most interesting characters in the DC, but the story feels so minor. There is huge blowout potential in this title, and it's not being utilized as it could be.
I still enjoy this series, though I find that it reads better in trade than from month to month, even though that is still generally how I am consuming it. I find it hard to keep the story in my head on a month to month basis. I'm a little bothered by the oversexualization of Starfire, but they've done some nice arcs with her history that have helped to balance that at least a little. But really, any book that could make me care this much about Jason Todd is a winner. I was pretty young, but I still remember reading "A Death in the Family" and basically rooting for that snotty nosed kid to go down. Now, as an adult and a RHO fan, I am somewhat ashamed of that.

The Christmas themed annual was a wicked good time. Will be receiving volume 5 in next month's shipment but really feel this is a fun series. Wish they'd tone down the Starfire sex vibe but love what they're doing with the three main characters.
I have been buying up Jason Todd post crisis stories. Between this and Barman Eternal the Red Hood has become one of my favorites and I'd love to see more of him and Babs.
