"The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul," Prelude
Ra's al Ghul has enigmatically returned from the dead...but what does that mean for Batman's teenaged son, Damian--whose mother is Ra's al Ghul's daughter? It will take the combined skills of Batman, Robin and Nightwing to get to the bottom of these mysteries and stop Ra's al Ghul's insidious plans. Part 3 of 10.

    Fresh off his run with Geoff Johns on Teen Titans, artist Tony Daniel provides some strong - albeit conventional - pencil work, taking a rather straightforward approach to Batman in particular that gives this story a somewhat iconic feel. While not dazzling by any stretch of the imagination, Daniel seems like an appropriate artist to take over for Andy Kubert. And seeing that Daniel is most likely capable of finishing more than a half-dozen issues a year, I'm fairly pleased with DC's decision to have him join Morrison on this book. Read Full Review

    By now you have probably made a stern decision on what to make of Morrison's run, but this story arc is proving epic enough to warrant at least a second look for those naysayers - after all, when it comes right down to it, as one of the few DC titles not affected in anyway by Countdown, by default Grant Morrison's Batman becomes one of the company's best books.

    I'm not sure what I just read and how it ties into the Ra's storyline, but Ra's returned in this issue and some stuff happened. I'll let you know when I figure it out. Read Full Review

    Im supporting this crossover because thats the kind of Batman fan I am, there is a huge chance that I will end up getting angrier and angrier with each part of the eight-issue run. Kind of reminds me of the rest of whats going on in the DCU. Read Full Review

    I really, really want to get back into the Batman books again, but with mindless, boring drivel like this, its apparent I will not for some time. Morrison's Batman continues to be a terrible, out of character take on one of comics most iconic characters, all while focusing on annoying, vague, and downright random stories. He may be good on fourth wall breaking weirdness, but Morrison is not the writer for a series like this. In all honesty, Tony Daniel's art is the single saving grace of this issue, and even that is not enough to make me want to continue reading this series. Read Full Review
