Neal Adams returns to DC this fall to write and draw Batman vs. Ra’s Al Ghul, a six-issue series tying into DC’s “Year of the Villain” event.
“…Adams shows a Gotham City under siege by terrorists, with Batman determined to find the source,” reads DC’s description of the series. “But when Boston Brand, a.k.a. 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!”
Adams co-created Ra’s al Ghul back in 1971’s Batman #232 with Denny O’Neil and Julius Schwartz, and coinciding with this new series DC plans to release a facsimile edition of that issue.
Batman vs. Ra’s Al Ghul #1 (of 6) is due in stores August 21.
