This was believed to be a follow-up to his two-issue story in Red Hood for DC Comics, itself a sequel to Christopher Priest's Batman: The Hill. And it looked as if Shawn Martinbrough is returning to the characters rather soonish. But there was no sign in 2022. He then posted to in September of this yearX, "Just got an update on the release of this six-part sequel from @DCOfficial. I appreciate everyone's patience & can't wait to share! Early #2024 #writing"

And now DC Comics has confirmed in full, Red Hood: The Hill #1 of 6 for the 13th of February, drawn by Sanford Greene, and a Red Hood: The Hill #0 collecting Red Hood #51 and #52, on sale on the 6th of February.

Shawn Martinbrough's Red Hood Is Coming in 2024, Promise

In Gotham City's early days, The Hill was one of Gotham City's most dangerous neighborhoods, one that required the residents to band together to keep themselves safe when the police – and sometimes even Batman – wouldn't. Now, as the Hill finds itself gentrifying, old habits die hard as the vigilante known only as Strike works with her team to keep the town safe—but she's not alone. Jason Todd, one of the Hill's newest residents, is more than happy to don the visage of Red Hood to help Strike keep his new home safe. But a new villain is emerging from the shadows. Will Red Hood, Strike and the Hill's small militia of vigilantes be able to keep their home safe? This series features a main cover by series artist Greene, with a variant cover by Tirso Cons. On February 6, check out the story that brought Jason Todd to his new home, in Red Hood: The Hill #0. This thrilling tale collects Red Hood #51 and Red Hood #52, also written by Shawn Martinbrough, with art by Tony Akins and Moritat. As The Joker War ravages Gotham City, a new vigilante group has formed to protect their turf, and Red Hoof finds himself caught in the crossfire! This two-issue collection features a new cover by Sanford Greene."
