There's a new kind of crisis threatening the heroes of the DC Universe, ripped from real-world headlines by CIA-operative turned comics writer Tom King- How does a superhero handle PTSD?

About the Author

Tom King is a comic book writer and novelist, best known for his work at DC Comics including Batman, Mister Miracle, Grayson and Omega Men. He often relies on his experience as an ex-CIA agent and experiences during the recent conflicts in the Middle East in his writing, especially apparent in Grayson (alongside co-writer Tim Seeley) and Omega Men and in The Sheriff of Babylon, published under the Vertigo imprint.

Reviews

"Heroes in Crisis is a fresh look at the normalization of hypermasculinity, which leaves no room for emotional vulnerability." --Newsweek

"Dives into the far-reaching effects of post-traumatic stress disorder, all through the lens of a superhero comic." --Inverse "The nuanced look at characters both iconic and obscure adds an even greater sense of richness to this story." --IGN "Hooked us in from the first few pages." --Nerdist "Treats death like what it is--tragedy." --Polygon "Mythological and grandiose." --io9 "It's a gut punch for readers and Wally's fellow heroes alike." --SyFy Wire "Clay Mann's art and Tomeu Morey's colors are enthralling, and the warm, September afternoon feeling of the book only adds to the overall sense of dread." --Den of Geek "Absolutely compelling." --Black Nerd Problems "Writer Tom King weaves a tense whodunnit into a sometimes controversial plotline that examines
the psychological turmoil beneath the costume, from PTSD to addiction." --The Ringer "An underlying story about emotional pain and trauma among superheroes...a story of heroic, larger than life characters who must also deal with the very real fallout of post-traumatic stress disorder in the wake of the brutal circumstances surrounding their adventures." --Publishers Weekly
