    Default Post-Crisis Jason Todd?

    I'm looking for a bibliography of comics featuring Jason Todd as Robin between Crisis on Infinite Earths and Batman: A Death in the Family. Can anyone help me out?

    Jason Todd actually had very few appearances post-Crisis. His origin was retold in Batman #408 and 20 issues later he died in #428.

    In the Batman title, Max Collins was the main writer after Year One, and his run was pretty bad. Jim Starlin took over with #414 and his run was much better but he hardly ever used Jason at all.

    In the Detective title, Mike Barr was the main writer but his stories were more pre-Crisis in nature than post-Crisis. He was still using the pre-Crisis Catwoman and Jason's personality was more of his pre-Crisis self as well. Alan Grant eventually took over, and he never used Jason at all. The one and only time Jason ever appeared in Alan Grant's run is during the Mudpack storyarc, but that was Clayface IV shapeshifted and not really Jason.

    Really the only memorable post-Crisis Jason Todd story was the foreign diplomat rapist two-issue arc right before Death in The Family.

    ^ That list is kind of deceiving. While Pre-Crisis Batman technically did end in Batman #400 which was kind of a swan song to him in a similar way "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow" was for Pre-Crisis Superman, I would be hesitant to call #401-403 truly Post-Crisis modern Batman. Modern Batman truly began with Year One in #404-407. Then #408-409 was the re-telling of the origin of Jason. So #401-403 are kind of in a limbo state somewhere between pre and post crisis.

    Similarly with Detective, Year Two was where modern Batman truly began there and that started with #575. Its even more evident here because Mike Barr was still plainly using Pre-Crisis Catwoman prior to #575 and Jason still had much of his Pre-Crisis personality.

    The list is also deceiving because in some of those Jason only appears in a few panels. Ten Nights of the Beast in particular I only recall Jason appearing in one scene in the entire storyarc. The list also oddly leaves off Batman #416 which was a big Jason issue where he meets Dick for the first time.
