By now, you’ve probably become well acquainted with “The Button,” a crossover incorporating both Batman and The Flash, which is set to unlock one of Rebirth’s greatest mysteries. And considering that it encompasses only four issues, it’ll be over before you know – but do expect the finale to arrive slightly later than originally planned.
Fortunately for us all, the delay is only that of seven days, so there’s no need to overly fret. You see, The Flash #22 had been first slated for release on Wednesday, May 10, but will now arrive on May 17. See? That’s not too bad, now is it? Likewise, The Flash #23 has been pushed a week, now scheduled to hit shelves on May 31.
While the reasoning behind this hasn’t been disclosed, it’s most likely due to writer Joshua Williamson having to pull double duty, as we recently learned that he’s scripting Batman #22, with both him and Tom King co-plotting the story.
While you (ironically) wait for The Flash #22 to arrive, be sure to check out the official synopsis below:
“THE BUTTON” part four! 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!
