Robin goes off the deep end as the temptations of Ra's prove too strong to resist! Even if Nightwing takes his big brother role to heart, he may not be able to drag Tim off THIS ledge!

    Artist David Baleon's pencils are uneven at best, and at most times, entirely too cartoony and light-hearted for this subject matter. With only two issues left, "The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul" is quickly running out of time to turn into the storyline I had hoped for - an exciting, sweeping epic that takes more than a few pages each issue to examine the complex dynamic between the intermingling Batman and Al Ghul families. I fear that the series will only continue to deliver the type of uneven storytelling we've seen thus far. Read Full Review

    DC continues to demonstrate its lack of understanding of how a crossover is meant to work. This late in the game, it's not a stretch to say that Detective Comics and Batman are the only important portions of "The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul" while the other two titles are more tie-ins. Unless you're really into these specific characters, Robin #169 isn't worth your time. Read Full Review

    I dont really know what to think of this storyline anymore, its been an overall disappointment but at least is hasnt tied into Countdownyet. I really think Fabian Nicieza will handle the next issue well, no matter how strange it will be to see Nightwing and Robin fight. This storyline is wrapping up and has still has two issues to try and make it compelling. Read Full Review
