Expect "The Button" To Heavily Affect Batman Titles This June

In the past week, there’s been much discussion surrounding Batman titles and understandably so. With major story arcs wrapping up in the near future and “The War of Jokes and Riddles” kicking off in June, there will no doubt be much riveting reading material for Dark Knight devotees to consume in the coming months.

With a lot of emphasis being placed on the upcoming showdown between Joker and Riddler in Batman #25, the contents of issue #24 somehow became overlooked by all. But now that DC’s June solicits have been released in full, we now know that it’ll continue the “Aftermath” story begun in the previous installment.

In addition to serving as, well, the aftermath of the “I am Bane” arc, it’ll explore the fallout of whatever is to happen in “The Button” (apparently Dark Days: The Forge #1 will be doing this as well). Full details can be found below.

“Aftermath”! Gotham City is at peace…but a war is coming. Armed with the terrifying knowledge gained from the mysterious button, Batman prepares for the coming storm by making a proposition to one of his enemies—one that will change everything for the Dark Knight and his allies!

Naturally, reverberations from “The Button” will also be felt in the Caped Crusader’s other flagship title, Detective Comics, with at least one of June’s offerings continuing that thread. From the sound of it, Batman will be off doing his own thing while Azrael has more pressing issues of his own, but I’ll let you check out the descriptions and judge for yourself.
