Red Hood and the Outlaws #8

I post here...never. I don't think I've posted anything since I joined ages ago. I'm such a lurker. But I didn't see this scene posted yet, so I thought I'd do the honors. If I messed it up somehow, broke any rules, or missed these pages being posted somehow, please feel free to tell me and I'll do what I can to fix it. :)

Jason and co are in Gotham saving some kids at a hospital when Alfred sends out his distress signal, concerning the Night of the Owls stuff. Jason is about to leave when Roy points out that a lot of people are on the job already, but Tim picks up that Jason has intercepted their call. He asks Jason to stick around and help, and Kory -- Kori, whatever -- asks Jason if he knows Tim.

This lovely little flashback occurs.

I've wanted some nice brotherly love from Tim and Jason since he came back to life in 2005. I know a lot of people are put off by the reboot, but I think this made it worthwhile for me. (Although the idea of Alfred's cooking being anything but perfect is clearly absurd. :P And I don't like how Tim's being portrayed in Teen Titans... But that's a story for another day.)

Did anyone else love the idea of Tim and Jason being buds as much as I do?

Again, I'm okay with this development. I just wish it was, y'know, developed.

I honestly think this is the biggest issue I have with him writing Jason. I like the Jason we have in his book now for the most part, but Lobdell does way too much "telling" and not enough "showing." And the frustrating thing is that a calmer, more rational, not-close-but-not-so-antagonistic-with-the-Batfam-Jason is pretty much the only place his character COULD go and that journey is KINDA important. And we saw very little of it at all. That was always gonna be a huge character growth arc for Jason and I'm really not pleased that we're not gonna get to SEE him go through, if that makes sense?

Aww so much THiS! Pretty much my thoughts exactly. But ngl, kinda loved this moment, along with the one from Robin that FabNic wrote.
