Overview

From the endlessly creative minds of comics legends Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert comes a startling new chapter in the life of Gotham's Dark Knight.

The mysterious Talia, daughter of arch villain Ra's al Ghul and Batman's one-time love, returns with a boy named Damian and claims the child is Batman's.

Stunned, the Dark Knight takes the child in, but the boy, raised among the brutal dictates of the League of Assassins, has his own agenda.  Soon, both Tim Drake, Bruce Wayne's newly adopted heir and Alfred, Wayne's faithful butler, find themselves targets of this genetically perfect and very angry child.

Is Damian really just a misguided boy trying to prove himself to his father—or have long years of Talia's indoctrination left him an operative solely designed to destroy Batman?

Under the masterly skills of Morrison and Kubert, BATMAN AND SON is one of the most intriguing Batman tales ever told.

This volume collects Batman #655-658 and #663-666.

Meet the Author

Grant Morrison
Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.

Andy Kubert began his career at DC comics illustrating the first highly successful BATMAN VERSUS PREDATOR and ADAM STRANGE series. Andy went on to Marvel Comics’ popular X-Men title, which was consistently a sales juggernaut and remained their top-selling comic during his six-year run. At Marvel he also illustrated such titles as Ghost Rider, Captain America, Ultimate X-Men and the Marvel 1602 miniseries in which he collaborated with New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman and which earned a 2005 Quill Award for Best Graphic Novel.
         In addition to having been named to Wizard magazine’s Top Ten Artists, Andy is also an instructor at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey.

    Intricate and unique

    The story is simple: batman supposedely has a punk for a son. I know that alot of people were talking trash about this story arc when it was coming out monthly, But I disagree totally with the others whom did not appreciate this story as I did. this starts off with the joker getting shot in the face by an imposter batman. I'm not going to give away any more of the story, just know that it is unlike traditional batman stories, Grant Morrison has a touch for the unique.(Arkham Asylum) Andy Kubert's artwork is also beautiful. All in all, this is a good batman story. I would not call this a 'Must Have', but it is good enough to check out.

    Damian Wayne as Robin

    I've started to look for more comics featuring Damian Wayne, the ten year old assasin raised son of Bruce Wayne. Damian might be a punk but he has good points and is a very interesting character to follow.

    A perfect Grant Morrison Batman adventure.

    The Worlds Greatest Detective meets his own offspring in the form of the young and arrogant Damian, but Damian has much to learn from the Caped Crusader. This fantastic story has all the excitement and action any Batman fanatic could want and the artwork along side is perfect. Highly recommended.

    batman has a son what?

    Grant Morrison has done it again in Batman and Son. Batman has a son named damian and you will not believe who the mother is.Batman uses a gun to kill someone or does he?In this book there are 3 different Batman's and there is a lot of bat-men ninjas.This is by far my favorite comic in the world. Batman and Son is a must have for everyone so get up and buy it at your local Barnes and Noble or comic book store.
