Jason Todd and friends are under new management in March, as a writer returns to the DC Universe after a six year hiatus (though, as pointed out by a reader, he did do work for the publisher on The Spirit a couple of years back).
Following James Tynion's run on the series, as he clears up his schedule to focus on Batman: Eternal, Will Pfeifer returns to DC to take over Red Hood and the Outlaws with #29 in March, 2014, Newsarama has learned exclusively. He'll be joined by Rafa Sandoval on the series, which will be Pfeifer's first work for the company since 2008's Blue Beetle and Catwoman.
Interestingly, the first cover for his run, by Phillip Tan, features only Jason Todd, and the solicitation text for the issue mentions only Red Hood and Starfire, throwing some question as to the status of Roy "Arsenal" Harper. The text from DC Comics reads, "Jason and Kori set out to deliver justice to alien murderers, but they’ll need to steal a spaceship to do it! Now who in The New 52 has something like that they could “borrow”…?" We'll have more directly from Pfeifer about his return later this week.
Newsarama Note: DC's solicitation initially miscreditted Pfeiffer as Wil, not Will.
