Batman has spent so long avenging crime that he's lost sight of his life as Bruce Wayne. However, his initial plan, a trip to London, is cut short by the arrival of hundreds of ninja Man-Bats, not to mention old flame Talia, daughter of his nemesis Ra's Al Ghul - and a boy she claims is his son
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Morrison made his reputation scripting such outré comics as Doom Patrol and The Invisibles but recently turned to chronicling such superheroes as the X-Men, Superman, and, now, Batman. His initial Batman story arc adds a significant element to the Caped Crusader mythos, for the character learns he has an adolescent son from a long-ago brief liaison with immortal criminal mastermind Ra's al Ghul's beautiful daughter. The youngster wants to replace Robin as Batman's sidekick, but, having been raised by international terrorists, his values and brutal combat methods clash with his father's moral code. Morrison's take on the Dark Knight may lack the innovation and brash fun of his recent, out-of-continuity reimagining of the Man of Steel in All-Star Superman, but it's still a satisfying mainstream superhero story with just enough kick around the edges, as in Bruce Wayne's efforts to reestablish his playboy credentials, to lift it above average. Second-generation comics artist Andy Kubert echoes the stylized dynamism of his renowned father, Joe, adding pleasing contemporary nuance.--Flagg, Gordon Copyright 2007 Booklist"
