“THE BUTTON” part three! The cataclysmic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continue here!
The Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall. What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party—and it’s not who anyone suspects! It’s a mystery woven through time, and the ticking clock starts here!

I was a little unsure of “The Button” — DC’s mini-crossover between Batman and The Flash exploring the mysteries of Rebirth. Its first issue, while thrilling with its all-out brawl between Batman and Reverse-Flash, was light on any meaningful investigation. That all changed with last week’s The Flash #22, sending DC’s two best detectives on a wild ride through the Speed Force and landing them in the Flashpoint continuity. That alone raises big questions, but I’m most looking forward to Bruce interacting with his father — especially once it’s revealed that Thomas Wayne became the sort of vengeful vigilante Bruce hs always struggled against becoming.

“THE RISE OF STAR CITY” part two! The Ninth Circle’s puppet mayor Nathan Domini cripples Seattle’s ability to defend against the ever-increasing chaos of disease, fires and crime while Green Arrow and Black Canary face a confederacy of foes unlike anything they’ve encountered before as Cheshire, Brick and Eddie Fyers tear the city apart!

The first chapter of “The Rise Of Star City” floored me. With a roster of classic villains (and Brick, who – let’s be honest – was never a great villain in any previous incarnation) laying waste to Seattle, I’m anxious to see what Ben Percy and Juan Ferreyra do next as the heroes take the field of battle.
