Batman collaborators Tom King and Clay Mann are working on a new seven-issue DC Comics "murder mystery" event titled Heroes in Crisis. The series will center around Sanctuary - a trauma center for superheroes - that King has hinted at in various comic books and appearances. Heroes In Crisis plays off the DC event tradition of events with "Crisis in their name, and comes ten years after DC's Final Crisis.
"[Heroes in Crisis] will trace what happens when Sanctuary fails to adequately provide for its patients and what happens in the aftermath," according to THR.
Sanctuary will be founded by the DC Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman, and Heroes in Crisis will reportedly also feature Harley Quinn and Booster Gold as lead characters.
“I feel like I’m part of a rolling generation of people who spent their twenties overseas fighting terrorism," King said. "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."
King and Mann are scheduled to be joined by colorist Tomeu Morey and letterer Clayton Cowles.
Heroes in Crisis #1 is scheduled to debut September 26.
