Based on 7 critic ratings.

Jason Todd (a.k.a. Red Hood) and Dana Harlowe (a.k.a. Strike) find their relationship strained in more ways than one.

While in costume, Red Hood—as well as other members of The Watch — urges Strike to give up the vigilante life, and in their civilian lives, seeds of jealousy begin to drive a wedge between Jason and one of his oldest friends.

Meanwhile, Demetrius Korlee Jr. and the villain known only as Suluku both have their own sinister schemes for the town, but what will happen when they converge?

Things are heating up in the Hill!

When it all boils over, will anyone be safe?

    Jason continues to sort of be on the fringes of this series, which is a very interesting choice. He only appears midway through the issue, which makes me think this is essentially Martinbrough using a popular character to tell the story he really wants to tell—and that works, because Dana’s story is very compelling. Martinbrough and Greene are doing a great job of showing the impact of everyday crime and supervillain violence on average citizens—and how it leaves deep scars and ruined lives long after the superheroes leave the battlefield. How Jason fits into this is becoming clearer after the end of this issue, as he seems to get pulled into the quest whether he wants to be or not. But while this series is taking its time setting up its story, it introduces a major new player in the cliffhanger who takes the threat level up quite a bit. This continues to be the best Jason Todd-led series in a very long time.

    Red Hood: The Hill #2 explores the balance between order and chaos, and what some characters are willing to do to maintain that balance. The series might be a slow burn, but it’s giving us some good character work. Plus the addition of a longtime Batman foe hints at even more conflict in store for Red Hood – which is where Jason Todd operates best.

    Red Hood: The Hill #2 brings us DC’s greatest anti-hero in ways you’d never expect to see him; humanized and handling the peace of his new part of the city. Don’t mistake this for a simple superhero comic, as it’s bringing a great deal of tension, and we can all look forward to seeing it pay off.

    This story is hard to follow, and the ultimate point or plot is really hard to pin down. My best guess is that Dana is a character that Jason can see himself as, and as a result, he wants to save her from becoming just like him. Interesting thought as Jason has fought to not become Batman.

    Red Hood: The Hill #2 is more of the same from last issue. The focus remains on the local vigilante group The Watch’s ability to protect their community from the criminal gangs that threaten it. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and their ties to their home is the title’s biggest appeal, but it can create the sense that it’s still waiting for something to happen. Fans of Jason hoping he’ll play a larger role in the comic with his name on the cover will need to wait for future issues.

    Red Hood: The Hill #2 feels like a repeat of the first issue, just with a few more details and a little more complexity – and Jason continuing to take a backseat to the rest of the players in this vigilante story. Generally, there is potential here. The idea of getting into a story on the edges of Gotham that is about how the violence that permeates everything in the area truly impacts people is a good thing, but given the rather long and at times confusing narrative, it’s starting to feel like this story is less a slow burn and more something that should have been a full graphic novel for how complicated it can be in keeping track of everything going on.
