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)
UNFORTUNATELY I WAS NOT ABLE TO GET THE LENTICULAR COVER AS MY LOCOL COMIC SHOP DON’T STOCK THEM. ARGH. IT’S SO COOL. HAD TO OPT TO THE STRANGE LOOKING VARIANT.
Firstly, great storytelling, once again. Beautifully written and laid out, really digging the recent issues. DC are beating Marvel in comic sense by miles. In this issue Bruce finally talks to Thomas Wayne and we get to see snippets of their relationship before the Waynes died. I found it really cool how you can see symmetry of Thomas and Bruce in their mannerisms but also the differences are pretty evident. This issue felt really short but the content was there, quality content.
“Sometimes we fall son…But always remember…Waynes never stay down…WE RISE.”
