Jason Todd was ALWAYS been my Hero! :') Because when i was a kid, you could say my life was like Jason Todd. My mom & dad hated eachother.... I'm always at the side of the corner trying to make them STOP! but if i did my dad would hit me or spanked my butted. I actually did smoking when i was a kid...
When i left my hometown... My Uncle or (Bruce Wayne).. & my cousin.. bro (Dick Grayson).. misses me... but when i came back home my bro would just laughed at me about coming back home... i wanted to kill myself... coz my friends here in Dc would just steal my money... games... DVD's... i even payed for that... no one was there to protect me... no one to defend me... in Highschool i got bullied by 5 guys... i wanted to kill them...so much... this loneliness inside of me won't go away till today... That's why Jason Todd you are my hero! :')
I read both of these and was bawling at the end of both. You two did excellent!!! Poor Jason. Six Robins and he, only the 2nd, he has to be the one that everyone hated. This guy was the spunkiest, most charming of all the Robins, but nooo...they left his fate in the hands of the fans, and what did the ever-loyal fans decide? Kill him. Pfft--forget the Joker. We killed Jason Todd. Or rather, they did.
Meibi made a great point. I love Tim Drake, but from Jason's point of view, he was betrayed, replaced, and basically told indirectly of a sort that he was nothing. For all the kids you've adopted/mentored, Bruce, you really do make a terrible father!!
Oh God, this made me cry... But it was beautiful, all of it. The illustrations, the descriptions, the emotions...goodness, this has to be the best Jason tribute I've ever seen. <3333 Wonderful, wonderful job to the both of you. (:
this is soo sad!! jason is my favourite member of the bat family and it's so sad to think that Batman never dared to cross that line but didn't care if all of the robins kill, the only robin who didn't kill nobody was Dick and he DID let some villains to die, to me Bruce is just a COWARD!
What a haunting story. It's always interesting when an author and an artist look at such a popular story in different ways. It makes you think, and in particular, makes me inspired. It's a nice feeling, in amongst the gloom.
Depressing is the first word that comes to mind :[ but beautifully executed and so very in tune with what Jason is. ;___; Its made me realise that im still conflicted over loving and not loving Jason's character and his feelings towards Bruce.
/hyperventilates oh my god this is just... ;-; I'll have to go stalk the author to send my comments to them as well. Your art is truly amazing, I love how everything is pale and out of focus, like looking through tears, through Jason's fading eyes. Jason's fading hope, but not quite, it wasn't hope, it was something else that even he truly couldn't understand. But that doesn't matter now, because maybe it was all for Gotham all for Batman all for Robin or maybe all for nothing
oops I got carried away, anyway the limited colour scheme was effective, and I'm loving this, even though you didn't write it, you made it your own all the same.
this really makes you empathize with the character. Realization is a difficult thing to capture into anything kind of art. Now showing the " blindness" and process of realization is an excellent feat and the illustrations just make it that much better.
