Red Robin #11

I really do love this comic. Aside from making Tim Drake interesting again, Christopher Yost has managed to use a villain like Ra's al Ghul to his fullest - and he's not even breaking a sweat. Here's a the kind of hold-nothing-back revenge plot a villain with near unlimited resources like Ra's would actually employ.

His attack Drake comes from every side. There are no feints, each is meant to wound and, if possible, kill. Not only has Ra's set targets on all connected to Red Robin (Dick Grayson, Oracle, Batgirl, Alfred, Damian, Julie Madison, Lucius Fox, Jim Gordon, Selina Kyle, Vicki Vale), but there's another plan behind the scenes involving Hush that is hinted at but (thankfully) not revealed.

A must-read, and worth every penny.

[DC $2.99]
