One of the great things about Tom King’s Batman run is that every issue feels a little bit different from the ones that preceded it, even within the same story arc. That’s also turning out to be true for “The Button.” Batman #21 showed us what King and artist Jason Fabok can do when seeking to pay homage to Watchmen. In The Flash #21, Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter pushed the story in a bigger, more colorful direction. Now, as the crossover returns to Batman, we see the creators playing musical chairs as Williamson scripts and Fabok draws this issue. Not only does this constantly shifting approach give the storyline a strong sense of variety, it’s resulted in what’s easily the strongest and most well-rounded chapter yet.
