Fan shares alternate look at Quitely’s Red Hood

First off, a big thank you to Robot 6 reader Mark Spitz, who shared this with us over email. Mark recently purchased some original Frank Quitely art from Graphic Collectibles, and it included a bonus of sorts.

“I was lucky enough to purchase a couple of Frank Quitely pages from Batman and Robin #1, including #22 (the “do not miss” page),” Spitz wrote. “I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there were actually two versions of the Red Hood panel and both were included in my purchase. The original shows the Red Hood in a different costume with different guns.”

Here are all three versions, starting with the original version and ending with a scan from the published issue:




Again, thanks to Mark for sharing this cool purchase!



Oh wow, that’s kind of a shame. I love that Western-gunslinger look he’s got in the initial design, the duster’s a classy touch and nod to the Nick Cave song.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing also.

Towards the end, the Red Hood experienced a slight johnson-reduction.

Cool. Reminds me of the design for the Red Circle character the Hangman. Maybe that’s why it was changed.

I kind of like that first design a lot. It’s not all typical super-y.
