Watchmen closer to DC reveal – The DC Comics “Rebirth” one-shot comic book that launched the new universe saw Batman finding the Comedian’s bloody smiley face button lodged in the wall of the Batcave.
This was just one of the many clues that have been floated in various DC Comics titles pointing to the appearance of the Watchmen in the DC Universe.
Batman and Flash are arguably two of the best detectives in the DC Comics Universe. They team up in Batman #21 & #22 and Flash #21 & #22 to investigate the strange occurrences that have been going on ever since Wally West came back from the speed force. Hopefully this 4 issue mini-crossover event will shed some light onto why Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias have been altering the histories and timelines of the DC Universe.
If you’ve been wondering about how the mystery behind Geoff Johns’ DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continues, you’ll find out more beginning this April in “The Button,” a four part story arc in issues #21 and #22 of BATMAN and THE FLASH.
Courtesy of the Batman team of writer Tom King and artist Jason Fabok, along with The Flash writer Joshua Williamson and artist Howard Porter, 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.
