UPDATE #2! Batman and The Flash to Investigate ‘DC: Rebirth’ in Crossover

UPDATE #2:

And the beautiful lenticular covers keep coming! This time for Batman #22 and The Flash #22.

THE DARK KNIGHT AND THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE DIVE DEEPER INTO
THE MYSTERY OF DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH THIS APRIL!

Batman and The Flash Team Up For the Four-Part Mystery “The Button”
All Four Issues to Also Feature Special Lenticular Covers

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 that delivers the next piece of the larger, ongoing puzzle. DC has revealed three of the four lenticular covers for issues #21 and #22 of BATMAN and THE FLASH, with a mysterious fourth cover now throwing a wrench into the gears of this epic BATMAN/THE FLASH crossover!

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 Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive will discover something completely unexpected along the way!

As the lenticular covers have rolled out, we’ve seen Batman, The Flash and Reverse-Flash all change and transform as the image moves from one character to the next. Now, with the reveal of THE FLASH #22’s main image, we see someone not even hinted at in DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1! What does this mean for “The Button,” and who else might show up along the way? The ticking clock starts now… or is it completely smashed?

These covers are revealing a little more as time goes on. Check them out below:

The appearance of Thomas Wayne is certainly getting me extremely excited for this upcoming crossover.

UPDATE: As the truth behind the badge inches closer, you can now check out these incredibly cool gifs for the covers of Batman #21 and The Flash #21. Will they be special lenticular covers? Or simply alternate covers?

DC’s greatest detectives are teaming up to investigate Rebirth.

Last year’s “reboot” ended on a shocking note that characters from Watchmen have interfered with the DC universe.

Now, the World’s Greatest Detective is teaming up with the Fastest Man Alive in a crossover event to get some answers. Running in issues #21 and #22 of both Batman and The Flash titles, the two superheroes will finally shed some light on Rebirth.

DC’s Official Announcement

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. 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!

This is exciting. Not only are we finally going to get some more answers to the Watchmen mystery, but Jason Fabok is returning to Batman. He is one of DC’s strongest artists, and a personal Batman favorite, so I’m looking forward to these issues.
