Batman & The Flash Come Face-To-Face With

The Ultimate DC Comics Mystery in

THE BUTTON FINALE!

The Batman and Flash cross-over has had a major baring on the lives of the world's greatest superhero detectives. From the death of a major Flash villain, to the meeting between Batman and the one person he never thought he'd see again, things are shaking-up, and no one can tell if it's for bad or for worse for our heroes. Now, they're trapped in the timestream, on the trail of Reverse-Flash moments before his ultimate demise at the hands of the being he could only describe as "God". But, Thawne is convinced he KNOWS who the button belongs to!
And he plans to bring him down!
This is it, everyone!
What we've been waiting on!
THE FINALE OF THE BUTTON! And a classic DC Comics character returns in...

THE FLASH #22

STL041124 (1)

"THE BUTTON" part four! The cataclysmic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continue here! The Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall. 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, and the ticking clock starts here!

And, of course, like the others, there'll be two other covers: A cover B and a lenticular cover...

MAJOR New Releases!

Before we close off the Soundwave Newsletter this week with the complete listings of Wednesday's new releases, we'd like to ask you guys to help us out...
Every week, Greg has to figure out which titles we want to carry in the store. As you all know, we carry quite a bit; While most stores stick to the major sellers (Marvel, DC, Walking Dead, Saga), we try to carry everything from everyone, as much as we can... We try to have a large variety to make sure our friends, family, and customers are well taken care of, but sometimes we can't always do that. Every company is always putting out brand-new titles, and of course we have to always keep Marvel and DC in stock, so sometimes the indies fall to the wayside and we start making cut-backs on certain things.
Every so often, you guys are looking for something we aren't carrying or that we don't buy enough of.

But, we don't want that to happen anymore.
