King Brings DC’s Next Crisis Event

Heroes in Crisis - DC Comics News

From the landmark maxi-series Crisis on Infinite Earths, to Infinite Crisis, to Identity Crisis and to Final Crisis, DC Comics and the word ‘Crisis’ have had a long history together. For a time, DC seemed through using the term when they launched event series like Blackest Night and Flashpoint, but Tom King is bringing it back with Heroes in Crisis.

Heroes in Crisis is a new miniseries King wrote with co-creator Clay Mann. The series will center around Sanctuary, a trauma center for superheroes. The Sanctuary will be founded by the trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, but the book will explore what happens when it actually fails to provide for its patients.

King had this to say about the project:

I feel like I’m part of a rolling generation of people who spent their twenties overseas fighting terrorism. Millions of people cycle through that machine and come home to America. And I think that sort of experience of violence is shaping who we are as a culture, and as a country. And I want to talk about that. I want to talk about that experience, the experience of what violence can do to a person, to a community, to a nation, to a world.

Heroes in Crisis #1 is scheduled for a September 26 release date.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
