KarmaMole The View From Here..

DC In Crisis


I like some of Tom King’s work, and some of his earlier Batman stories were really good (I’m ignoring the Batman Wedding debacle), but Heroes in Crisis should have been nipped in the bud by the editorial powers that be and exemplifies what happens when a writer gets too big for his ideas to be rejected. The very notion of a secret trauma hospital/therapy center for both heroes and villains is frankly ridiculous, and the notion that Batman, of all people, would go to it is completely inconsistent with the character and should never have been allowed into cannon.

I had really hoped, from early cover reveals that this would be something like Byrne’s Legends, but it’s not, and Clay Mann’s incredible artwork is being wasted on a story that should never have been green-lit, to begin with.

There, I got that off my chest.
