There are also some great pieces of artwork that either consciously or subconsciously pay tribute to The Dark Knight Returns and its sequels.

Altogether, the issue is a satisfying piece to the puzzle we know as The Button.

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 in Batman #22.
