The Button event comes to a close as fans finally get an answer to one of DC Comics biggest mysteries! And as an added bonus, a character from DC Comics past makes a triumph return (sort of)!
The Flash #22 picks up immediately after the events of Batman #21. Hot off the heels of an alternate Earth adventure, the team of Batman and The Flash chase down the reverse Flash who’s heading towards a certain doom.
Also while chasing the reverse flash through a chaotic time stream, Batman and the Flash encounter a hero who should be familiar to longtime DC Comics fans. Yes folks, Jay Garrick is back! Well, sort of. Jay shows up at the last minute to save the day but then disappears as quickly as he reappeared. No biggie. These kind of things happen all the time in the DC Universe.
After you get done this issue, it might take a few minutes to process the jaw-dropping conclusion. Oh, and make sure to pick up the next Watchmen/DC related event in November.
