"Wow. A strangely well-timed book about power in all its forms, wrapped in a compelling, gritty adventure. The atmosphere created by the existence of deadly ticks, and the horror they inflict in a grim future, is background to a story of family -- those we are born into and those we create -- misplaced loyalties, heroism, and ultimately a glimmer of hope. I hated to come to the end, as I wanted to stay with the characters as they move into that future." --

"Batman and The Flash unite after a mysterious button shows up in the batcave, signaling something is afoot. This BEAUTIFUL compilation is a must-read for anyone who enjoyed the
series, or just any comic fan who digs quirky crossovers in general (this is the prelude to a
mash-up), and also continues the
saga. The artwork is top-notch and consistent throughout, to say nothing of the collectable hologram cover. Cannot wait to read more! --
