I’ve been a huge fan of DC’s Rebirth. This has been a company-wide turnaround that’s accomplished everything the creative teams have intended. Rebirth kicked off strong with the final page of Rebirth #1 where Batman found a mysterious button in The Batcave.
Now DC is advancing that shocking cliffhanger further with a four-part arc The Button. Only a handful of people in the DC Universe has been manipulated and The Button finds Batman and The Flash teaming to learn its secret and who placed it.
Batman writer Tom King and artist Jason Fabok collaborate on Batman #21 and #22. Over on The Flash, regular writer Joshua Williamson teams with artist Howard Porter.
Here’s DC’s synopsis:
The two greatest detectives in the DC Universe unite to unravel the mystery behind a certain blood stained smiley face button stuck in the Batcave wall. However, what begins as a simple investigation soon turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party – and it’s not who anyone suspects! This is a mystery woven throughout time, and the countdown starts here!
In addition to the standard $2.99 covers on Batman and The Flash in late April and early May, each of the four issues will feature a special $3.99 lenticular cover, all drawn by Jason Fabok. Don’t miss the chance to find out more about the mysteries behind DC REBIRTH when these issues hit your local comics retailer beginning April 19!
It’s been a major testament to the quality of the Rebirth titles that I haven’t been impatiently waiting for the payoff to Rebirth’s cliffhanger. Now we’re starting to fill in the blanks, I can’t wait to see where The Button leads Batman and The Flash starting April 19.
