(If you want a better review of each book, please click on the links above. I won't go in-depth as much consider each link will give you proper information)
"Batman: Son of the Demon" tells the story of Batman and Talia Al Ghul looking into an powerful organization that's headed by a man named Qayin; a man who wants revenge against Ra's Al Ghul since he was a child. Both Batman and Ra's can't get Qayin without the others help, so they form a union to hopefully catch Qayin. What we get is story what many consider one of the best Bat stories ever written. A James Bond-esque action story, with the link and metaphors of Batman being Ra's own son is heavily prevalent, and unlike anything done before, as well a powerful look at the love between Talia and Batman.
"Batman: Bride of the Demon" is predominantly about Ra's search for a bride, all the while planning the biggest scheme conducted in his usual environmentalist way. Batman has to find a way to stop Ra's biggest plot yet. While not as impactful, or as clever as Son of the Demon or Birth of the Demon, this is still a great read. A lot of action, and definitely more about the battle of wits between Ra's and Batman, like a cat and mouse game.
"Batman: Birth of the Demon" is the last story of "The Demon" trilogy, and involves Batman spending years trying to stop Lazarus pits from being found to finally stop Ra's Al Ghul. What we get though, is a majority of the read is the origins of Ra's Al Ghul. Again, considered one of the best Ra's stories every told, we get a complete origin: Ra's birth name, rough birth date, early profession, ideology toward mankind and nature, and even his name itself, "The Demon's Head". It's all here.
Owning this book is the holy grail of Ra's Al Ghul tales you could own, and is definitely among some of the best material in the Bat catalog. Originally released in order of 1987, 1990, and 1992 respectively...this is came out among the same time period as Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, Batman: Arkham Asylum (15th Anniversary Edition), and Batman: A Death in the Family, so the maturity and content match the time period of the Batman, as well as Ra's himself. Where as Batman: Tales of the Demon started it all, it had little to do with modern day Ra's or Batman's dynamic relationship. These books on the other hand were the prime influences that material like BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES and most modern day Bat stories took inspiration off of. That speaks volumes, and the fact each book individually sets the bar for Ra's and Batman's relationship further cements this book as a pickup. Even the writing and art hold extremely well for today's times! If that's not enough, each book at my comic shop individually is around $40 apiece (meaning $120 for all 3!) so having it here in one nice package is a no brainer of a pick-up.
If you're worried about continuity as well: don't fret. Grant Morrison's run on Batman Batman and Son actually recons Son of the Demon into continuity, but you really don't need to do that unless you want to. Although it's called "The Demon" saga/trilogy, each of the 3 stories is stand alone tales from each other, yet they leave just enough ambiguity and vague hints that each tale could connect to one another...but again, that's not needed. And for anyone who regards the concept of Son of the Demon, where Batman joins Ra's (we all know Batman would probably never do that) it's a hypothetical story that was once considered a "Elseworlds" story, so please don't get uptight over that story plot.
As for extra's, there's barely anything. No introductions and you get the original paperback collection covers. If your one for extras, there's really nothing here, but it's sub-marginal compared to the rest of the contents.
BATMAN: BIRTH OF THE DEMON is a rare book for Batfans: it's good for new readers on Ra's Al Ghul, a must for collectors, has some of the best or if not the best Ra's stories on the market, and it has a price you just can't beat considering what's here. And even if one of the stories doesn't do it for you like the others do, you'll still find something from the other stories. And most of all, this is a phenomenal case study on one of Batman's greatest foes, as well as their deep relationship. Pick this up detectives.
However, the centerpiece of this collection is "Birth of the Demon". This story is worth the price of the collection alone. With a story by Denny O'Neil and painted art by the excellent Norm Breyfogle, this story follows the origin of Ra's Al Ghul and tells us of the tragedy that lead him to become the man he is now. I won't give away anything contained here, because I feel it's best to go in cold. You'll appreciate it much more that way. This is a must read for any Batman fan though. Often-times retroactive origin stories tend to be disappointing, or take away from the impact of a character. However, O'Neil is talented enough and has enough faith in his creation that he creates an excellent, nuanced story for Ra's, and it only gives him more dimensions as a character.
