Batman: Son of the Demon

 BSOD   (DC, 1987)

and 1987 DC Comics

Reading the opening pages of this story, you get the feeling you're watching a first-run action movie, before the opening credits roll. Combining the exact amounts of action, romance, exotic locales, beautiful women and beliveiable bad-guys, Mike W. Barr writes an excellent story to match beautiful art by Jerry Bingham.

The story centers around Batman's arch-enemy, Ra's Al-Ghul (pronounced Raesch-Al-Ghoul) and actually shows a human side of Batman when he will become son-in-law to Ra's and the father of Talia's baby.

If you ever want to introduce a non-comics reader to the world of Batman, show them this story. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best, this story rates a 1,000,000.
