Beginning April 19 in "Batman" #21, the storyline brings together the Dark Knight and the Scarlet Speedster, described as "the two greatest detectives on any world," to solve the mystery of how The Comedian’s blood-splattered smiley face button from “Watchmen” appeared in the Batcave at the end of “DC Universe: Rebirth” #1.

The first cover, drawn by Jason Fabok, features the return of Jay Garrick, who burns a hole through space, time and even the illustration, a partial recreation of the cover of the character's first appearance in 1940's "Flash Comics" #1. Howard Porter's variant cover, meanwhile, also showcases the Golden Age Flash with the red-and-yellow crackling lightning injecting color into the otherwise black-and-white illustration,

“The Button” begins  in “Batman” #21 and “The Flash” #21, and concludes in May in “Batman” #22 and “The Flash” #22. The “Batman” issues are written by Tom King and illustrated by Fabok, with “The Flash” by Joshua Williamson and Porter. All four issues will feature lenticular covers by Fabok.
