You want action? You’ve got it! You want a stunning conclusion? It’s right here! Joshua Williamson has made Eobard Thawne more menacing than ever…more sinister and yet more pathetic an individual, more dangerous and yet more lost. It’s a great conclusion to this arc, setting in motion some intriguing possibilities for future issues. I have some minor qualms, an we’ll get to those, but overall this is an outstanding conclusion to “Running Scared”. Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!

There are some upside-down and backward things happening in this issue. We start with a look in the 25th Century at the Flash Museum, where they celebrate The Flash’s best friend and ally…and it’s not who you think. That being said, we do have a visit from one of Barry’s true best friends, and the return of…well, you’ll need to follow us after the jump for more!
DC has released the preview for Batman #21, which is the first part of the upcoming Flash–Batman crossover, and you can see it at Comic Vine. The issue is out this Wednesday, and is part of a four-issue story titled “The Button”. And as you can see, it features the return of a long-missed villain.

The upcoming Flash–Batman crossover “The Button” will begin next week, and DC’s released another telling cover from it. This one’s a variant from Batman #22, and features disturbing allusions to guest-stars Professor Zoom and Flashpoint’s Thomas Wayne (you can see the main cover for this issue here).
We saw at the end of Flash #19 that Professor Zoom’s alive and remembers the events of Flashpoint, including his death at the hands of Thomas Wayne. It’ll be interesting to see if he meets with Flashpoint Batman during the crossover, as he’s already expressed the intention of attacking his son. Plus, of course, there’s the mystery of the Comedian’s button which Barry Allen and Batman will be tackling.
The crossover begins on April 19th with Batman #21, and continues the following week in Flash #21. It will then continue in issues #22 of the Batman and Flash series.
