BONUS REVIEW by Shawn

"THE BUTTON" part one! 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!
Clearly designed to look like pages 81-101 of the DC Rebirth Special, this is the beginning of the latter part of the prelude to the opening of the "Watchmen Story".
It was worth the wait.
Even if you're not that big a fan of the current Batman run, the story really doesn't require much familiarity with the title in order to pick up what's going on.
Highly recommended, even for the only mildly curious. Speculation alert! This issue features the first appearance of Arkham Asylum Motivational Materials. All the kids are gonna want that poster!
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
