While Ra’s Al Ghul is one of Batman’s most interesting and odd fitting villains, I’ve always enjoyed stories involving him. Here DC collects three different tales all being Ra’s centric. In Son Of The Demon we get a story, that at one time was a throw away tale, which now is a huge moment in the Bat family’s past. Seeing Talia and Bruce together is good but not always believable. Being with Talia always seemed against the rational Bruce’s mindset. In Bride Of The Demon we see Ra’s at war and Bruce unsure where his loyalties should lie. Then there is a historic look into Ra’s’ past in Birth Of A Demon. Its an intriguing look into his past but its too fantastical to not laugh at and the art made it hard to differentiate the different characters. Overall this was decent read especially if you like Ra’s Al Ghul.
this is one great graphic novel, Batman vs Ra's al Ghul and having a child by Talia, his daughter. i have searched for this one for years, and to now have a new copy. the artwork is a wonder, the read is fun and exciting...so far. i haven't finished it yet. i got this for my birthday from my sister, and i got three Batman books out of the deal. all are great. i know on Amazon i could find used copies but to get a new one, is just wonderful. thank you very much.
