Présentation de l'éditeur

A collection of the three DEMON tales, each story explores the connection between Batman and the villain Ra's al Ghul. The first tale focuses on the two teaming up and a union between the Dark Knight and Talia al Ghul; the second focuses on Ra's attempting to father a heir; and the third explores the real story behind the seemingly immortal villain and his motivation for world domination. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

il s'agit plus d'une biographie de Ras al Ghul qui regroupe 3 series que des aventures de Batman. A reserver aux fans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally! The Demon Trilogy in One Package! 13 mars 2012
Par Anarchy in the US - Publié sur
Format: Broché
In 1971, Ra's Al Ghul was created. An opponent of the Batman that, unlike his many other rouge villains created: Ra's was extremely intelligent, honorable, well financed, patient, unyielding, and had vast respect for his adversary. Ra's was an opponent that was ahead of his time; enough so where he has gone on to be what many consider Batman's greatest foe, even over The Joker (and if Joker is #1, then Ra's is a close second place). Ra's is even considered one of the greatest super villains in comic history. That's impressive, considering he was created in the mid-Silver Age of Comics, unlike many other famous villains created in the Golden Age and early Silver Age. And where as Batman: Tales of the Demon is the first Ra's stories told (and a definite pick-up for any fan of Ra's), there is only a hand-full of select definitive Ra's stories out there...until now...and finally collected together for the first time as "The Demon" trilogy!

Batman - Son of the Demon (DC Comics)(Written by Mike W. Burr and penciled by Jerry Bingham)
Batman: Bride of the Demon(Written by Mike W. Burr and penciled by Tom Grindberg)
Batman: Birth of the Demon(Written by Dennis O'Neil and penciled by Norm Breyfogle)

(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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the greatest Batman stories of all. 3 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Birth of the Demon is possibly the greatest Ra's Al Ghul story of all time, and certainly the best post-crisis tale featuring him. Batman has discovered a way to use Ley lines to find out where Ra's will have to dig his Lazarus Pits, which are responsible for his prolonged life. This leads to an account of Al Ghul's history, his discovery of the Lazarus Pits, and how he became the man he is today. The inevitable confrontation between Ra's and Batman is spectacular. Denny O'Neil, one of our finest writers, agains demonstrates his complete mastery of the written word, and artist extraordinaire Norm Breyfogle provides the breathtaking painted art. This is a magnificent tale; if you're a Batman fan, it's required reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent primer on Ra's Al Ghul 16 juillet 2012
Par Anthony R. Regina - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There are three stories contained in this collection: "Son of the Demon", "Bride of the Demon" and "Birth of the Demon". Each story was originally published as a one-shot by DC in the late 80s - early 90s, and they're all very enjoyable. "Son of the Demon" is a tale where Batman and Ra's team-up to stop a terrorist with a link to Ra's past. Throughout the tale Batman and Ra's form a bond in a way and Batman even fathers a son (Damian, who is now Batman's latest Robin). This story strengthens the odd familail element present in all stories featuring Ra's and Batman, showing how they have simiarl goals, but can never really see eye-to-eye. Also, like most great Ra's stories it makes Batman into the globe-trotting James Bond-esque hero of the story, and that's always a fun depature from the grim, street level crime stories he is usually a part of.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Origin of Ra's Al Ghul 15 février 2009
Par Gus Gordon - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Ra's Al Ghul is easily Batman's most intelligent and feared nemesis in the entire Rogues Gallery of Gotham. This book sets out to finally quell in questions the well-read Demon and Batman reader's questions about how Demon's head got his name, where he came from, how he came to be the mad man we know now. This book doesn't disappoint. The artwork makes you fall right into it, as if you were living it rather than reading it. A must-have to complete the saga of Batman and his struggle to defeat the world's oldest living eco-terrorist: Ra's Al Ghul.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Collection of 3 Ras/Batman Epics 18 février 2013
Par Dallas - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Most reviewers give "Birth" all the praise, but the other two books are also quite good. Son of the Demon was very enjoyable, especially the beginning. Although continuity is questionable, and a whole other discussion, the part where Batman finally opens up with Talia and lets himself become emotionally vulnerable is interesting to see. Bride of the Demon is sometimes reviewed harshly, but I still thought it was an enjoyable tale. A little lengthy, and the art isn't quite as breathtaking as the other two, but nonetheless a good read. You can tell the origin of this book is dated - it appears to be set in the late 70s/early 80s. However, it doesn't feel dated though because the issues they face in this book are still major issues today - global warming, greenhouse effect, ozone depletion, etc. Finally, Birth of the Demon is already reviewed at length by many of the others on here so I won't go into detail. If I had to rate them right now off the top of my head, I would give "Birth" a 5 of 5, "Son" a 4.5 of 5, and "Bride" a 3.8 of 5. While many might not consider this an essential batman TPB, it would be a shame not to read this, especially if you're past the "recommended reading" of Batman (Long Halloween, Hush, Year One, Dark Knight Returns, etc). If you enjoy "Birth", Ras' origin tale, you may also enjoy "Tales of the Demon", which is more of his Year One in confronting Batman. They are very different, however, in that Tales is more of a collection of short stories and is not an epic such as Birth. Not a bad combo for a Ras fan, however.
