The story in all was nothing truly special. True it was the end of Ra's resurrection. I didn't get the feeling that it really wasn't going to happen. All through the issue Batman and his allies made it seem that they were going to die during the battle and not make it out, but there really wasn't any single action that really made me feel they wouldn't make it out. The very beginning of the story had Batman beating Ra's body so badly he was actually starting to tear him apart. I felt that the story line was also trying to add more to Ra's Al Ghul's past by revealing that White Ghost was his son. The action did seem to be basic, but I did like some of the art work in the book all in all if you wanted to read a Batman book go ahead and by it, just don't get your hopes up.
