A little plot and dialogue heavy, and not the kind of story arc that you want to use to begin a new series. Batwoman begins her series dropped into a setting we've never seen before, full of characters we don't care about.

I love Kate Kane/Batwoman. I think there is huge potential for her character and I couldn't wait to see how her new series under the Rebirth initiative would serve her. Unfortunately, despite the exciting and well drawn art, there seems to be little going for this series, at least as of now. We are only two issues (three if you count the one shot) into this series and the most I can say for the st more

The issue is good, not as good as Batman 21 though. The art isn't as good as issue 1 of the button, but very few artist can draw as well as Fabok. I felt the story was a little slow and there could be more substance. The ending is awesome and it will be interesting to see where they go with this. Definitely a pick up if you like flashpoint and DC history. Trying to be spoiler free so I will st more

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

Not as strong as the opener but still very satisfying. The ending felt a little ruined by the cover solicitations but the story getting there was still well done. Art was a step down from Fabok but got the job done sufficiently. Overall, still enjoying this crossover and can't wait for Batman #22.

Sorry buddy,but the current art is done by Howard Porter who made some of art for Geoff Johns's Flash run,but don't worry Jason Fabok is doing the art for Batman #22.

I know, I still liked the art quite a bit but it wasn't as great as Fabok. I know that Batman #22 has Fabok back however the change in art did affect my grade slightly.

DC's long history is one step closer to being relevant again and that is nothing but good! This issue was low with the action but high with the mystery and intrigue.

This issue is very different from the last one, and that was something to be expected. Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter have very different styles than Tom King and Jason Fabok. I was afraid that this second creative team would imitate the first one, but it didn't happen, and that's why this issue is excellent. Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter do what they do best. That means no 9 panel grid more

I enjoyed the first chapter more, although with Saturn Girl and Johnny Thunder both introduced now, I'm wondering how they're going to wrap up everything in two issues. Fabok and Porter have different styles so if you wait until all four chapters are out and then read them all in one sitting, it can be bit jarring. This chapter wasn't bad but it leaves us on a cliffhanger meeting between Batmen of more

Hmm... Ms. Marvel is usually one my favorite books from Marvel, but I thought the resolution was a little weak here. Doc.x' defeat didn't make too much sense to me, personally. The beginning with everyone coming together in the hallway was pretty great, however, and easily the highlight of the book for me.

I knew that Tom King would deliver. I know that a lot of readers haven't been hot on his run so far but I have thoroughly enjoyed it so far, very different than your standard Batman books. I love how his run connects itself to Rebirth as a whole in this issue. Fabok on art was a great call, as expected. Can't wait for Flash #21 next week, looks like it will be a great crossover.

The covers. The emotional depth. The character development. Only having a one-issue break in the art with a one-shot guest pencil-er prevented this from being a perfect rating. I read this after The Vision, so the standard for emotional resonance is probably too high, but it's an amazing book, even though I didn't know much about Rayner beforehand. Must-read.

I sincerely appreciate the discussion, everyone. Challenging thoughts all around. I suppose I was trying to say that the severity of the negative reviews (it's okay to not like an issue!) seems to be not recognizing that one may not be the target audience for a book. Agenda was too strong of a word, and 5 was an arbitrary number. I try to put more than just the # in my review, and even if it is short, I will consider my word choice in the future. As a new user, I love the passion on the site!

Superior fan - Apr 8, 2017

As do I, BucSwin611. There are many books not made for me. But even if it isn't something I like, I'm more concerned with technique. For example, I loved Gwenpool #1-forward. Yet I lowered the ratings on some issues because the fill in artists lacked the technical proficiency of the Guihiru group. I communicated that the artwork would be weaker, yet still I enjoyed the book.
