“THE BUTTON” part one! The cataclysmicevents 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! (DC Comics Website)
Great Storytelling in this issue, along with dramatic panels and amazing one-liners, this issue is a great start to the Button saga. The three prominent characters keep the story going smoothly, without overwhelming the reader.

Also the issue features a two page scene of Batman getting REKT by Reverse flash. The timer ticking in the corner of the panels also is a very effective story telling method. A shock in this issue was the appearance of Thomas Wayne, The Flashpoint Batman, when he appeared in the bat cave for a brief moment.

The only downside to this beautiful book is that the Lenticular Variant/Any Variant feauturing the button is not available in the UK or Europe yet due to copyright reasons. This is why i had to opt into getting this cover.

Definitely a great read, cannot wait for The Flash #21: The Button Part 2.

10/10
