Batman/Flash Crossover Brings Gotham Girl Into the Sanctuary Murder Mystery

Barry Allen suffered a tremendous loss in the pages of Heroes in Crisis and, this February, its effect on the relationship between the Flash and Batman will be explored in a four-part crossover story arc.

DC Comics has released their February 2019 advance solicitation information revealing that Joshua Williamson is writing both issues of Batman and The Flash in February featuring a crossover, titled "The Price," between the two heroes as they investigate a cold case related to the DC refuge of Sanctuary and somehow involving the superhero Gotham Girl. The safe haven had suffered a mass shooting in the opening pages of the crossover event Heroes in Crisis this past September with Barry's friend and protege Wally West among those lost. The advance solicit info from DC and cover illustrated by Chris Burnham is below:
