A tragic death sends the Shadow War into overdrive, and Batman and Robin must solve the mystery before more blood is shed! Meanwhile, Deathstroke regroups with the Secret Society to plan an attack on Talia and the League of Shadows. If Talia wanted a war, she’s going to get a war!

ReSpawn is dead.

He was created using DNA from Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke and Talia Al Ghul, by the now dead Ra’s Al Ghul.

Batman and Robin confront the faux Deathstroke, who actually killed Ra’s Al Ghul, and…

…we learn that the main behind the mask followed Batman in the past before he violently makes his escape.

Deathstroke distracts Batman Inc., who Batman sent to protect Deathstroke Inc. aka the Secret Society of Super-Villains, but…

…they aren’t that effective in their duties.

Deathstroke escapes with his nefarious allies…

…to attack Talia Al Ghul who – along with new ally Angel Breaker – also has her grandmother, Ra’s Al Ghul’s mother, Mother Soul captive.

Here’s the Shadow War checklist for your edification.

A frenetic issue with engaging story and solid art. I remain entertained. 8 out of 10.
