Many details in Seeing Red were previously established in Judd Winick’s Green Arrow run: Constantine Drakon first appeared in GA #27, Brick was introduced in GA #40, Mia Dearden became the new Speedy in GA #45, Oliver Queen was revealed to be the mayor of Star City in GA #60, Ollie defeated Deathstroke in GA #62, and Natas made his debut in GA #66.
Search for a Hero is the final arc of the Tim Drake Robin series. It follows a tie-in story to Batman R.I.P. and leads into Battle for the Cowl and Drake’s new series, Red Robin. By this point, Stephanie Brown’s death in War Games had been revealed to be a hoax, and she had returned to her pre-Robin role of Spoiler.
The explanation for Jason Todd’s new costumes in Search for a Hero–both the domino mask look and the Red Robin attire–is provided in Countdown to Final Crisis. For an explanation of his Batman costume in The Underground, see the link below to Damian Wayne Week 3’s coverage of Battle for the Cowl.
The General was first introduced in Detective Comics #654 as part of the lead-in to Knightfall. This story was discussed by World of Bats here.
