DC Expands Tom King and Clay Mann’s Heroes in Crisis to Nine Issues. Lee Weeks and Mitch Gerads Gets Added.
Beginning September 26, Eisner Award-winner Tom King’s new limited series, Heroes in Crisis, introduces a new generation of readers to the concept of a “Crisis” within the DC Universe. This time, instead of a reality-ending event, this crisis is ripped from real-world headlines: How do superheroes handle PTSD? How do DC’s Trinity—Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman—handle the traumas and anxieties of fighting crime and saving the world, over and over again? And what happens when the safeguards that have been in place for years, fail?
First announced as a seven-issue series by Tom King and artist Clay Mann, Heroes in Crisis now expands to nine issues, with King collaborators Lee Weeks and Mitch Gerads providing art for the added issues. These issues will provide added insight into King and Mann’s epic tale, with Weeks handling art duties for issue #3 and Eisner award-winning Gerads providing art for issue #7.
Heroes in Crisis #1, written by Tom King, art by Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey, lettered by Clayton Cowles and edited by Jamie S. Rich and Brittany Holzherr, hits shelves September 26.
