Batman and Son

Batman and Son by Grant Morrison (2007)

Description: When Bruce Wayne travels to London to attend a charity benefit, he finds his past waiting for him. Talia, daughter of the evil mastermind Ra's al Ghul, engineers an attack by an army of mutual Man-Bats to kidnap the Dark Knight. But why? The answer lies with a young boy named Damian - a boy Talia claims to be her son with the Batman. But is he really? To what end does Talia leave him in Batman's care? And what kind of child is he if he has all of the skills of Batman... but none of the morals?

Review: A dark tale surrounding the Dark Knight. Unbeknownst to Batman/Bruce Wayne, he has a son with the daughter of one of his biggest foes. The family reunion didn't quite go as planned, but is all lost? I could not put this story down. It enthralled me from beginning to end. The artwork was outstanding as well. This is a must read, especially for Batman/Dark Knight fans.

Score: 4 out of 5
