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.
