    I'm all in for making The Button more relevant, as I think it didn't live up to the hype and originally I thought it was pure promotion to Doomsday Clock, but as times passes it proves itself to be more and more important. I still think the arc had flaws, but at least I can appreciate it more than before. I can't say the same for The Price yet, though ...

    I'm coming to think the same things. I still don't necessarily enjoy reading The Button itself, but I think King did some hard work trying to make it important to the whole thing.

    Hah, I laughed more than I should have at that. Needs to be a line on the WB series.

    I'm assuming we'll get the answer when the rest of the issue comes out on Wednesday, but why did Thomas decide to be a creeper in the shadows instead of going to Bruce once Thawne dumped him in this universe? Thank god The Button took place after Rooftops.

    Haha. Batman, no matter who is in the cowl, is always kind of a creeper.

    Great issue.

    I loved the reveal behind Thomas's motivations, and loved the Memento-esque approach to the backwards narrative (appropriate enough since City Of Bane has more than a few parallels to Dark Knight Rises).

    Can't wait for 85!

    I walked away from the X-men because I was exasperated by the alternative realities and the hyperconvoluted plots and what did I find in Batman? A run heavily based on alternative realities and hyperconvoluted plots; is it some kind of curse?

    I don't read Marvel beacause of that and I can feel you man. IMO Batman should stay away from alternative realities, time travels etc. it should be only streetfighting and detective, there are many other franchises for these kind of scenarios.

    I liked the issue. It adds more depth to Thomas' motivations and I enjoyed the parallels, which are essentials in King's run. Jorge Fornes is spectacular as always, same with Jordie Bellaire. There were two mistakes, though. One I can forgive, which was a coloring error that made Flash look like Reverse Flash. The other, was making the Penguin one of the rogues Thomas kills. The Penguin was alive in the original Flashpoint Batman story by Azzarello and Risso and he was helping Thomas in his business with the casino Wayne owned. It's one of those errors that I wonder how it slipped through writer and editors. He's even in the cover of the first chapter of Knight of Vengeance wearing the same outfit he does in this issue!

    Finally, another full Fornes issue!

    I don't know if the entire issue should've been dedicated to the Thomas Wayne flashback, but I suppose that it was necessary to spend a decent bit getting down the motivations for FP Thomas Wayne (and I suppose also exposit what happened in The Button for anyone reading the run who skipped The Button) and I do find that it was one of King's better written issues in this final stretch of his run.

    Though I do have to agree, how did nobody catch the Flashpoint Penguin error? Unless King decided Flashpoint was one of those alternate continuities where Oswald had a completely identical twin brother named Otto who became the Penguin while Oswald became Wayne's employee. I think maybe instead of the Penguin, King should've used Falcone or one of the other starter villains of Batman to further the parallels with Bruce's career.

    I really liked this issue. It felt like King finally putting pieces into place after oh-so-long and drawn out stories.

    The use of reverse flash instead of Dr Manhattan for explaining Flashpoint Batman surviving was a nice of to continuity.
