    There has never been an artist that clearly draws Batman and Bruce Wayne with such care and precision. And Adam's contributions to the Batman canon are an art to behold (ManBat, Ra's Al Ghul). However, the dialogue and rhythm of this story is a tough read. If you are into retro, and you want your characters around the 1970s and 1980s, then perhaps this is your Batman. It's a lighter, different side of Batman (albeit a whining side and not a winning side). However, this is your father's Batman"not yours. Read Full Review

    Batman vs Ra's al Ghul #3 (Adams, Robins): Beautiful artwork and odd, whimsical story, greatly weighed down by lots of unnecessary dialogue that doesn't actually make much sense. Read Full Review

    Despite how critical this review probably sounds, I hold out hope and remain optimistic. Have some of my favorite comic runs of all time had dud issues in the middle that I didn't like? Absolutely. But did it stop me from enjoying the series overall? Not at all. So, with some slightly lowered expectations, I head into issue four cautiously optimistic, having enjoyed Batman vs. Ra's al Ghul #3 but knowing that I just wanted something…more. Read Full Review

    How the hell do I score this book? This is a question I've been asking myself for three months now. I keep finding myself giving low scores for a book that, sure, clearly has a lot of problems" and yet still ends up being the comic book I'm most invested in from month to month. Read Full Review

    This mini-series is only half over and it already feels like it's run its course two issues too long. Read Full Review

    The story is fitfully amusing, but completely fails as any sort of coherent narrative. Adams is a legend, and I'm glad he's having fun. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 27, 2019

    When all is said and done I cannot recommend Batman vs Ra's al Ghul #3 to anyone. It's writing is poor and the art does it no great favors either. With a rich history of stories to inspire and draw from, I cannot fathom how this is what has come of Batman. I sincerely hope that Adams can take the coming issues and bring this story back around.
