A Year of Cool Comics – Day 266

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!

Today we look at Mike W. Barr and Jerry Bingham’s graphic novel, Son of the Demon…

Enjoy!

The graphic novel kicks off with an impressive action sequence by Barr and Bingham…







How much ass does Bingham kick there? That was awesome.

In any event, Batman learns through Gordon (and Talia) that these men were agents of a bad guy with ties to Ra’s Al Ghul…


Batman agrees to team-up with Ra’s to defeat their mutual enemy. In an impressive sequence, Barr both gives us the information of what turned Ra’s former protege against him and what Batman must now do to be a part of Ra’s group…





Once again, Bingham delivers with some incredible storytelling.

This story is mostly remembered for the following plot development…


Grant Morrison later used that basic idea as the formulation for his creation of Damian Wayne.

This was a striking piece with beautiful artwork. DC reprinted it when Morrison’s run began, so you should be able to find an affordable copy. Well worth a read.
