Author: Dennis O'Neil
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: December 01, 1992
If you're looking for the definitive Ra's Al Ghul story, look no further than his origin story, written by none other than the father of the Demon's Head himself, Denny O'Neil. Along with artist extraordinaire Neal Adams, O'Neil created Batman's deadliest foe way back in the 1970's, but it wasn't until 1992 that he sat down to pen Ra's' riveting back story, a sweeping tale set six-hundred years ago that reveals the tragic nature of Ra's past. Batman is determined to destroy every Lazarus Pit in the world. Before he can, he must face his former love, Talia and learn the true origin of the Demon's Head.
