    Reviews - Batman: Tales of the Demon - TPB

View this issue

Issues to inconsistent to recommend. - Thai

To begin with I like the whole Ra's Al Ghul concept for a number of reasons.
Well over 400 years old.
Batman match physically and mentally
The whole Talia subject matter.
So I decided to start at the beginning of Ra's career and find out what makes the ''Demon Head'' what he is.
On the plus side the book does contain a lot of stories although some he's not even in (Or for a very short period) the art has also been altered/remastered & looks great as a result.
There is also a shirtless sword fight which you always have to have in a Ra's story
One point though, the cover is very strange as Robin is on the cover lying as if dead but only appears briefly in one story?
A minor point but worth mentioning.

Unfortunately though there is a major problem.
I found some of the stories didn't continue on to the next issue and completely took away the point of reading them in the first place as they had no conclusion.
There is one arc that continues through 3 issues but the others have very random end's and obviously lead on to an issue not contained within the book which too me is completely pointless.
A great shame really as the book contains some really old school Batman moments like a ''Bat Sub'' , a fight with a martial artist (In a Gi no less) amongst others but as a whole I really can't recommend this and Ra's deserves better.
