While not as great as Batman #21 the first Flash chapter of the "Button" crossover adds some great intrigue to the story. This issue is a bit slower focusing on the mystery of the Button and where it came from as we see Flash and Bruce set out in time to try and find the origin of the Button. The writing in this issue works really well to keep the mystery unfolding while still building interest. T more

The first misstep of this League of Shadows arc. What we get here is mainly build up for the final issue. While this isn't bad by any means it was a bit of a slower read with some below average dialog from what we are used to. But for me where this issue really suffered was the art. The use of Batmans eyes to convey extreme emotions was absolutely terrible. This isn't a deadpool or Spider-Man comi more
