Batman and The Flash Watches the Watchmen in New Crossover Event

The secret of Rebirth is finally revealed.

The biggest mystery of DC Rebirth is that Alan Moore’s Watchmen characters are responsible for creating the New 52 and the confusing timeline and continuities.  I mean, even The Comedian’s bloody button is found in the Batcave as well.  While we still have to wait for Geoff John’s return to finish that storyline, a new crossover event between Batman and The Flash will have the two great detectives trying to resolve the issue themselves.

Titled “The Button,” the four-part crossover event will spin across the Batman and Flash ongoing series, and this is what DC has to say “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!

“The Button” will run through Batman #21 and #22, and The Flash #21 and #22.  They will be released in late April.  This is going to be an interesting read, as we are finally going to find out what Comedian’s smiley face button is inside the cave, and maybe why Doctor Manhattan wants to change the DC Universe in the first place.  If anything, it might even pave the way to John’s eventual conclusion to the epic storyline.

Are you excited for “The Button?”  I know I am.
