Exclusive Preview: Batman #64
If you’ve been holding your breath for the conclusion of “Knightmare,” you’re going to have to wait until Batman #66 for Tom King to get back to his run. In the meantime, writer Joshua Williamson and artist Guillem March are stepping in for Batman #64. This is the first part of “The Price,” a four-issue crossover between Batman and The Flash. And by the end of this story, these two friends may be at each others’ throats.
In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Batman #64, the action takes place between issues of Heroes in Crisis. Someone murdered the heroes in Sanctuary, and neither the Dark Knight nor the Scarlet Speedster have been able to crack this mystery. Before they can find out who killed their friends, they’ll have to get past the Justice League of Amazos!
Here’s the official description from DC:“THE PRICE part one! The two greatest detectives in the DC Universe take on the one cold case that will tear them apart!
As chief architect of the Sanctuary program that cost so much for so many, especially Wally West, Batman will be held accountable…by the Flash!
A cold case from the Justice League’s past has mysteriously re-opened, and Batman and the Flash—the only two heroes who stand a chance of cracking the case—are at each other’s throats! Our heroes must combat a demon from the past while burying their own inner demons in the process…and neither the World’s Greatest Detective nor the Fastest Man Alive will ever be the same again! But who is really pulling the strings here? And how does Gotham Girl fit into all this? Friendships will be tested and blood will be spilled in this titanic crossover event…”
