The new issue of Batman Ras al Ghul continues along the same ragged path as the previous issues.

Neal Adams is the writer, artist and colourist. Deadman and Batman are trapped in another dimension. Back in the ‘real’ world, there’s another Batman. Plus Ras al Ghul.

From there, it’s stream of consciousness wandering, with fluid, chatty dialogue connecting the mind-expanding strands.

The visuals are stunning. Adams, the longtime Batman veteran artist, puts a lot of thought and creativity into drawing this issue. The creatures are lithe, writhing, inventively planned and placed. The creatures will keep you compelled to continue the weaving and bobbing of this Batman story, which keeps bob-bob-bobbing along.

Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
