Comic book legend Neal Adams is returning to one of his most famous creations.


DC has announced the August launch of Batman vs. Raís al Ghul, reviving the immortal assassin also known as the Demonís Head for one more attempt to save the world ó in his eyes ó while undoing the good work of Bruce Wayneís alter ego in the process.


The six-issue series will be written and drawn by Adams, continuing a recent trend of his revisiting characters heís famously worked on before; prior to Batman vs. Raís al Ghul, he was responsible for 2010ís Batman: Odyssey, 2016ís Superman: The Coming of the Supermen, and 2017ís Deadman, which included appearances by both Raís al Ghul and the Dark Knight; to return the favor, Deadman will show up in this new series.


The plot of Batman vs. Raís al Ghul is at once simple and complicated, as the master villainís latest mission has the straightforward ambition of killing Batman once and for all, but a complicated execution that involves helping the city of Gotham when itís under attack from a group of terrorists, although thereís more to them than meets the eye. (Of course.)


Tying in with the launch of the new series, DC will release a facsimile edition of Batman No. 232, the first appearance of Raís al Ghul, with art by Adams and Dick Giordano, and a story by Dennis OíNeil. The release launches a new line of facsimile editions of classic DC comics, which will include debuts of fan-favorite characters as it continues.


Both Batman No. 232 Facsimile Edition and Batman vs. Raís al Ghul No. 1 will be released August 21.
