DC Comics, Tom King, and Clay Mann’s [easyazon_link identifier=”B07FM7PFFW” locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Heroes in Crisis #1[/easyazon_link] officially released on this New Comic Book Day, and fans have some strong opinions about the new book.

DC Comics’ official solicitation for the book reveals the focus of the series will be on how superheroes handle PTSD.

“There’s a new kind of crisis threatening the heroes of the DC Universe, ripped from real-world headlines by C.I.A.-operative-turned-comics-writer Tom King: How does a superhero handle PTSD? Welcome to Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes who’ve been traumatized by crime-fighting and cosmic combat. But something goes inexplicably wrong when many patients wind up dead, with two well-known operators as the prime suspects: Harley Quinn and Booster Gold! It’s up to the DC Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to investigate-but can they get the job done in the face of overwhelming opposition?”

Well, fans have finally been able to read the highly marketed series from DC Comics and they don’t appear to be too happy about what they’ve read.

A number of people showed their dissatisfaction with the first issue, but did caution to wait and see how the rest of the series will play out. O

There were a few people who did enjoy the story.

It definitely looks like Tom King might be quickly falling out of favor with DC Comics readers. Not only were tons of fans upset with his decisions in [easyazon_link identifier=”B07F2PVPBZ” locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Batman #50[/easyazon_link], but now Heroes in Crisis have a number of fans declaring they are no longer interested in DC’s entire line. And while I’m sure Heroes in Crisis will do big numbers for the first issue, King’s decisions on Batman #50 have seen the Batman book fall below 100,000 in sales starting with Batman #53. The last time Batman was below 100,000 was back in April where [easyazon_link identifier=”B07B6DNVPC” locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Batman #45[/easyazon_link]only shipped 96,448 copies.
