Legendary creator Neal Adams is returning to the world of the Dark Knight this August with Batman vs. Ra's al Ghul, a six-issue miniseries under DC's Year of the Villain banner.
The story sees "Gotham City under siege by terrorists, with Batman determined to find the source. But when Boston Brand, aka Deadman, tries to intervene, he discovers an even more disturbing and deadly truth: the terrorists are led by an inhuman monster! Ra’s al Ghul volunteers his own private security force to aid the GCPD, and now they are the saviors standing between nuclear terror and the townspeople!
But al Ghul’s true goal is hidden from everyone’s eyes. He will destroy the city and kill Batman—this time for good. Watching in horror is…Bruce Wayne?"
In addition to the miniseries, DC is also releasing a facsimile edition of Batman #232, the issue in which Adams and Denny O'Neil first introduced Ra's al Ghul to the DC Universe.
Written and drawn by Neal Adams, Batman vs. Ra's al Ghul #1 goes on sale August 21 from DC.
