A trade paperback collecting the thrilling 9-issue miniseries by acclaimed novelist Greg Rucka (Smoker, A Fistful of Rain) with art by Klaus Janson (BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS)! A dying Ra's al Ghul has no choice but to beg Batman, his greatest nemesis, for help against a woman who once shared his life, centuries ago. In exchange, he offers the Dark Knight a chance of a lifetime - the ability to speak with his dead parents. But what Batman's parents have to say to him will profoundly affect both the man and the hero. This collection also includes an introduction by series editor Matt Idelson and behind-the-scenes unused pages and sketches featuring commentary by Janson.
