Batman/The Flash: The Button Deluxe Edition
The road to DOOMSDAY CLOCK begins here, with the invasion of the Watchmen into the DC Universe! BATMAN/THE FLASH: THE BUTTON DELUXE EDITION is the prelude to this epic story from Geoff Johns and Gark Frank.   During the unforgettable events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH, Batman found a mystery he can’t even begin to solve—a strange bloodstained smiley-face button embedded in the Batcave wall. All analysis suggests the button is not of this universe...so where did it come from? And who left it here? These are questions only the Flash can help answer.   When the button is stolen by Reverse-Flash, Batman and Flash follow his trail to a parallel world, a twisted alternate timeline that shouldn’t exist. Someone is sending the heroes on a bizarre trip through reality, showing them glimpses of fallen loved ones and forgotten friends—but who? Wally West warned the Flash of an unseen force influencing our world—distorting histories, pulling the strings, watching all—and the strange yellow button could be the key to finding it.   Featuring the all-star creative team of writers Joshua Williamson and Tom King alongside top-tier artists Jason Fabok and Howard Porter, BATMAN/THE FLASH: THE BUTTON collects BATMAN #21-22 and THE FLASH #21-22. The road to DOOMSDAY CLOCK begins here!NOTE: Lenticular motion cover was only available on first printing copies!

When a mysterious, blood-stained artifact from an alternate universe (that readers might recognize from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons's seminal Watchmen) appears in the Batcave, followed by a powerful villain willing to kill anyone who stands in his way of possessing it, Batman and The Flash join forces in an adventure that transcends time and space in search of the solution to a mystery that threatens the very fabric of reality. The superstar creative team of Williamson (Justice League vs. Suicide Squad), King (The Vision), Fabok (Batman), and Howard Porter (JLA; The Flash) provide enough action for an entire summer's worth of blockbuster movies and hint at a larger story that's set to unfold across the DC universe over the coming year. What really stands out is the shocking and intensely moving finale, which offers rare insight into Batman's psychology and motivations and might just change the character forever. This hardcover volume collects single Issues of Batman, 21–22, and The Flash, 21–22. VERDICT Readers excited to see two of their favorite characters interact will be delighted, as will those intrigued that this is ultimately a prolog to the upcoming "Doomsday Clock" series, which promises to explore how characters from Watchmen are influencing the DC superheroes.—TB
