This week kicked off a new big story for DC with Batman #21 starting the new storyline: The Button. This is a team up story for Batman and the Flash and they are investigating the Comedian’s button, which landed in the Batcave when Wally West tried to reach out to Batman. This first issue kicks off with a glorious display of Jason Fabok’s artwork. The colours explode off the page, as Batman engages in breathtaking action. This first issue intrigues me beyond belief as it has been being built up since the reboot of the DC universe. I won’t go into too many details so I wont spoil anything, but this looks like the beginning of an arc that will be remembered along with greats such as Killing Joke and Death in the Family. This week also featured great comics such as: Nightwing, Super Sons, Superman, Trinity, All-Star Batman and Batwoman.
Marvel also kicked off a Secret Empire with Captain America: Steve Rogers #16 and Secret Empire #0. I have been enjoying Captain America for its whole run, this comic is full of twist and turns that keep me intrigued and keep the comic fresh. Secret Empire #0 put Steve Roger’s Hydra takeover in full swing with tactics of a man who has been planning this for decades, once again I wont go into spoilers because for those who read it I want it to be unspoiled. But this event has the potential to be really incredible, it seems fresh and exciting and will definitely mix up the status quo of the Marvel universe, which is exactly what it needs. Marvel also had a few other goodies this week with: Daredevil, Doctor Strange, The Punisher, Royals and Star-Lord.
