    Mercifully, "The Resurrection..." was less than two months long. If it'd been as long and involved as past Bat crossovers, I shudder to think what we might've ended up with. Still, at seven parts the story is overlong and this final installment proves what we've suspected the whole time: there wasn't much of a point. Read Full Review

    I would give the crossover a forgettable score, but of the books in the line this was one of the better ones. Who knows what part, if any, Ras will play in the coming year of stories. With stories like this one in hand, I cant say Im that excited to find out. Read Full Review

    The Return of Ra's al Ghul story arc was so amazingly underwhelming. And Detective Comics #839 was a fittingly dull finale to what was a disappointing and boring story arc. If you passed on getting this Ra's al Ghul story arc then you certainly didn't miss anything at all. Hopefully, all the Bat-titles can rebound from this story arc. Read Full Review
