This story just never clicks. There are too many writers and artists involved, and for every good moment there's about five boring or confusing ones. It's disappointing because Ra's is usually such fun villain to read. Skip it. ( )

I read this thinking it a necessary chapter of Grant Morrison's run on Batman. ugh. It's a year's worth of stories from four different Batman series (and creative teams), all revolving around a convoluted plot to bring back Ra's al Ghul. It's fairly sub-standard work from all writers and artists involved. Badly drawn fight scenes and whiny dialogue. Even Morrison phones it in. Skip it. ( )

A mish-mash, both art-wise and writing-wise, of the good, the mediocre, and the terrible. ( )

Ra's al Ghul has resurrected himself into a decaying corpse of a body, and is attempting to use his grandson Damian's body as a perfect vessel for him. This, of course, meets with opposition from Damian's parents, Batman and Talia. The story suffers from the glut of writers and characters, and Tim Drake contemplates a betrayal at the end that seems very unlike him. Uneven artwork, too. ( )

I liked the general story, but a few bits confused me:

When the White Ghost fell into the Lazarus Pit, I thought his body became the new host for Ra's. We don't see him for quite awhile, but we do see the bandaged Ra's. Then, all of a sudden, White Ghost is back and Ra's is saying his host body was Sam Tang. Who the heck is that?

At one point Ra's says he's either going to transfer his mind into Damian or Robin, but later, Batman says any transfer would need a blood relative, so how was Robin ever a possibility?

In the last section, right before Ra's permanently transfers himself into the White Ghost, WG's hair is all of a sudden short. At first I couldn't figure out who that was. WG always had the long flowing hair.
