    The best issue since #1, and by tying together some of the threads, it improves the story featured in the two issues that preceded it. Read Full Review

    I feel as though Adams has given me Stockholm Syndrome: I can't stop reading these issues, though I know they're hurting me. They are not inherently bad, but I also am of the thinking that Adams isn't the Batman writer (or artist) for me. I'm deeply interested to see where this series goes, and with two issues left, I certainly hope it's been worth the wait. Read Full Review

    There is a time when all good athletes must retire. And while Mr. Adams can dribble and shoot, he can no longer remember the plays (script). As for Batman Vs Ra's al Ghul #4, leave the script ideas to someone new and keep drawing. His art is awesome. His scripts are not! Read Full Review

    Batman Vs. Ra's Al Ghul #4 is the continuation of a strange series of Batman comics by Neal Adams going back almost a decade, meaning this entire series was guaranteed to be bizarre. But I wasn't quite prepared for just how bizarre. Read Full Review

    I can't say I hope Neal Adams " comic book legend, need I remind you " reads my takedown of his story. I'm not kind on this book, on account of it being" bad. But what I would hope he knows through all of this is that it comes from a place of love: love of his work, love of the characters and, indeed, love of this book. This is a more palatable form of Batman: Odyssey, and you can't ask for better (or worse) than that. Read Full Review

    The dimension-hopping plots is far from a normal Batman tale and it's beginning to be evident why that's fairly uncommon. Read Full Review

    While it's good to have Neal Adams doing another Batman adventure I can't really praise more than his classic artwork. The story has been slow and doesn't make much sense to me. I can only recommend it to fans of Adams' work. Otherwise I'm afraid it's too stale to be on the same level of story as his legendary Odyssey saga.
