Trick or Treat

We haven't even gotten the second issue, and Heroes in Crisis is already off schedule.

Despite advance solicitations, Heroes in Crisis #2 will not be in your Local Comic Shop today. The book has been delayed at least a week. According to, it is now scheduled for next week, October 31, although Diamond's website,, offers no such assurances at this time.

Will we see Heroes in Crisis next week? We'll all find out together.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for another excuse to visit the fine people at your LCS, remember that Batman Vol. 7: The Wedding TP is out today. It reprints Batman #45, 46, and 47, among other issues. If you missed or were trade-waiting the story that explained what Booster Gold was doing in Heroes in Crisis's doomed Sanctuary, this trade is for you.

Fight of the Century

DC Comics' January 2019 solicitations are online at, and it will be a busy month for Booster Gold, appearing in two issues!

variant cover by RYAN SOOK
Wonder Woman versus…Booster Gold?! Diana finds out the hard way that Booster can be a formidable opponent when his back’s against the wall. Of course, being the prime suspect in a superhero massacre and exposing a secret trauma hospital for metahumans will do just that. Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash combine their detective skills to investigate what went awry at Sanctuary and uncover a serious glitch in the system—not to mention an explosive, spoiler-ific secret!

The secrets of the DC Universe are hacked! Sanctuary wasn’t supposed to keep records, but now that the A.I. is compromised, superhero secrets are leaking all over the ’Net. Booster and Harley set aside their differences to focus on who they believe is the real killer (assuming one of them isn’t lying, that is). Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash continue to investigate the mysterious murderer. The answer can be found in Sanctuary…but is it safe to go digging in the crime scene?

Booster Gold is going to throw down against Wonder Woman? That's not going to go well.

Hold Your Nose (and Your Breath)

To say Booster Gold fans aren't enthusiastic about what they've seen from Heroes in Crisis #1 is an understatement. That's understandable. It's hard to get up for a series that starts with our hero being accused of mass murder.

Last week's poll question: What is your reaction to Heroes in Crisis #1? (73 votes)

What is your reaction to <em>Heroes in Crisis</em> #1?

Thinking out loud here: Maybe mainstream American super hero comics — where all problems are traditionally solved with a healthy application of direct and overwhelming violence — isn't the right medium to be addressing the "ripped from the headlines" cultural dilemma of mental health and mass shootings. I've been reading DC comics for decades, and I'd suggest that they lack the vocabulary for a nuanced discussion about balancing responsibility and forgiveness.

In the context of a world where a Justice League exists to stop local bank robbers and intergalactic conquering starfish alike, how could something like the Sanctuary massacre ever happen? If Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman can't prevent this kind of humanitarian disaster, what hope do any of the rest of us have?

The DC Universe: every bit as terrible as the real world!

Opinions in Crisis

Upon first read, I thought I was okay with Heroes in Crisis #1. Yes, it is heavy on atmosphere and light on story, but after Tom King's criminal misuse of Booster Gold in "The Gift", I decided that this was at least somewhat more respectful of my hero (even as it spits in the eye of the entire DC "Rebirth" initiative).

Then I read what and and had to say about it. (Warning: links contains spoilers.)

Now I'm wondering if perhaps my worst fears about this series weren't fearful enough. Since so many people seem to think that writer Tom King is some kind of literary genius — an opinion I have not shared since I read Batman, Volume 4 #1 — might Heroes in Crisis poison Booster Gold for the general public in the same sort of way that Marvel's revelation that Hank Pym was a mentally addled wife beater tarnished that once great character? *Gulp*

But maybe I'm overreacting. Maybe I'm just overprotective of my favorite character. Call me Chicken Little.

Am I alone? Let's find out.
