Page 45 Review by Stephen

The book whose marketing inspired Rick Veitch's gloriously diseased BRATPACK when DC readers were encouraged to vote on whether Jason Todd, the second Robin, should live or die. The result was overwhelming - particularly for poor Jason - for it was a resounding thumbs-up!* Fans of BATMAN: HUSH may want to check out the resurrected Robin's beef (which isn't as rude as it sounds) for this is where he copped it and Batman singularly failed to avenge him eye-for-an-eye-stylee. The culprit's the Joker and this extended edition reprints BATMAN #426-429, 440-442 and NEW TITANS #60-61.

* Fact: Roman emperors never used the thumbs-down gesture to dole out death to gladiators. It was a thumbs-up gesture, which makes you wonder what Paul McCartney really thought of photographers.
