In the wake of Ra’s al Ghul’s recent resurrection, Batman’s body lies near death in a heart-stopped coma. Meanwhile, his delirious mind travels back to a defining adventure in the life of young Bruce Wayne…the hunt for his parents’ killer! This special flashback tale also revisits Batman’s life-changing Thogal ritual in the caves of Nanda Parbat!
"I mostly understood what was going on this issue, but I still didn’t really care. Batman works through a near-death experience and flashes back to a dream sequence he had while undergoing mind-bending sensory deprivation in an issue of 52. And THAT’S what I consider ‘mostly understood’. With Grant Morrison on this book, it’s a bit of sliding scale. Much like most of his run on Batman, this is the rarest of Grant Morrison books: the kind that aren’t fun to read."
