“The Button,” Part 01
Writer: Tom King
“THE BUTTON” part one! The cataclysmic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continue here! The Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall. What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party—and it’s not who anyone suspects! It’s a mystery woven through time, and the ticking clock starts here!
It is almost time! The clock is ticking down – the mystery of the button will be solved! Batman and The Flash are teaming up for a four-issue crossover and honestly, my excitement is through the roof. Ever since the appearance of The Button – formerly owned by The Comedian of Watchmen – the entire comic community has been in turmoil. What does it mean? Will we ever know? Well, prepare yourself, because tomorrow marks the start of one of the most anticipated crossovers in recent comic history.
The publisher has been very tight-lipped about story details, but did say this:
“What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party—and it’s not who anyone suspects. It’s a mystery woven through time, and the ticking clock starts here!”
“The Button” kicks off tomorrow in Batman #21 and will continue through Batman #22 and The Flash #21 and #22.
