CM Podcast 175 – Heroes In Crisis

Heroes in Crisis is the new 9 issue miniseries by writer Tom King and artist Clay Mann.

It is published by DC and it is their 2018 event comic.  How do I know it’s an Event Comic?  Well, it does have “Crisis” right there in the title.  I mean, that’s a dead give away right there, man.  C’mon!  Do you even comic book?

Enough of that silliness, let’s get back to serious business – talking about comic books!  Jon and I had the opportunity to read the first issue of Heroes in Crisis that came out this past Wednesday and we decided to give it a review on the podcast but also take some guesses as to who is the murder.  What?  You didn’t know it was a murder mystery?  Yep.  There are many murders in this book and it was a hero that did it?  (Or was it?)

Okay.  Before we go too much further in the plot, let me just say right here:

  THERE WILL BE SPOILERS IN THIS PODCAST! 

Now, it’s just the first issue so I don’t know how much we can actually be spoiling but we do take some “stabs” at guessing who ultimately is responsible for the deaths at Sanctuary.

First Spoiler: There are 2 suspects that the reader is given at the end of the issue…

Harley Quinn

and

Booster Gold

I know exactly what you are thinking: “Who is Booster Gold?” or “Hell Yeah, it’s Harley Quinn!”  Both are valid points.  Listen to the podcast and we give our opinions on who really is responsible for the murders.  It just might change your opinion!  We also go over a quick history of Booster Gold for those that need a refresher.

Heroes In Crisis is starting off with a bang (and a stab)!  We look forward to the rest of the series.  Also, if you want to know why “Crisis” is DC’s event brand, you should really listen to Podcast 132: CW’s Crossover Event: Crisis on Earth-X.  I rundown all the related Crisis titles DC has published.

Your comics pal,

Jim
