    Default Batman #22 ("The Button" Part 3)

    Some info about this issue:



    According to Newsarama (and also a listing on the DC website for Batman #22), Josh Williamson (who writes The Flash) will be doing the script for Batman #22 instead of regular Bat-writer Tom King.

    DC's current crossover "The Button" will undergo a few minor changes in plans as it moves towards its May finale.

    First, The Flash writer Josh Williamson will now also script Batman #22 rather than regular Batman writer Tom King - a decision with several reasons behind it.

    "As we worked out the story details of the issues together, it become clear to me that Josh could script Batman #22 better than I could," King explained. "My responsibility is to put out the best Batman issue possible for the fans, and in this case, the way to do that was to step back a bit and let Josh take the lead. Reading it over now, it's obvious I was right; I love the issue and I love this event, and I can't wait for everyone to get it in their hands."

    Williamson added that scheduling considerations also played a part in the decision, saying "Tom and I had been working together on this insane 'Button' crossover for months, so when he needed to focus on the next arc of Batman with 'The Brave and The Mold' and 'The War of Jokes and Riddles,' it was super easy for me to jump in and help take the script across the finish line. Tom and I had talked with DC editorial about what we could reveal in Batman #22 and how it would play out and we’re happy with the story we developed together. The next parts of the crossover are going to be a wild ride."
    And Part 4 (in The Flash #22) will be out a week later (May 17th instead of May 10th).

    Let's hope that DC are finally able to send the lenticular cover to international comic shops.

    Williamson's already writing the main Batman book. He's really moving up at DC .

    I'm really surprised there's not more talk about how King isn't writing Batman #22.

    I noticed it, but since I'm not a super hardcore reader of Batman, I hadn't really commented much about it. I wonder if it was too much for Williamson, as well, since Flash has been delayed for the month of May.

    Let's be honest, the Button as an arc is much heavier on Flash mythos than it is on Bat mythos, so I think that this is fine. It's the return of Jay Garrick after all.

    Considering that we're talking about going from writing a twice-monthly title and now you're adding a third issue he's writing that month (plus any other outside projects he may have), a one week delay isn't all that terrible.

    I'm still waiting to see if that will happen at the end of The Flash #22 or not.

    I think part of it is that Williamson and King clash in styles. Anyway, I think King's issue might still end up the best issue in this arc with the simple hockey thing that was clever and kinetic.
    Thank you AMericA for votinG for chAnge.

    I am beyond hyped for this. I love ThomasBats (GrandpaBats) so much and seeing him with Bruce will be amazing.
    My favorite characters of all time are Bruce Wayne and Dracula.

    yo this issue is going to be f#$%^ing lit. I never get like super hyped to the point of jitters, but my grown ass feels like this is a paradox that has been a long time coming. It's like the conclusive emotional roller coaster for Bruce that's going to give him some sort of mild closure. This is huge for the Bat-Verse.

    Flashpoint was represented in Convergence, so maybe that had something to do with it. At the end of Convergence the Multiverse was restored, each timeline developing as if the event that ushered in the next one never happened.
