Batman #22

   The Rebirth story continues to heat up and this issue takes Batman and the Flash to... well, let's just say, surprising locales.

   They're trying to solve the mystery behind the Button, which we all recognize from its connection to the Watchmen series.

    Their search is taking them to other worlds, so the Flash has brought out the Cosmic Treadmill, an awesome Silver Age gizmo that allows him to move though time and/or dimensional space.

   (So, yes, it's like the Tardis without the roomy interior or the cool sound effects.)

    I can't say much more without giving away key elements of the story, but it's a surprisingly touching story with powerful art and plenty of surprises.

   This series is highly recommended!

Grade: A-
