The moment we’ve all been waiting for is nearly here: the killing off of a crapload of DC heroes to kick off the latest DC Comics super-mega-crossover event, Heroes in Crisis. The first issue hits stores on Wednesday, and today DC released a 5-page preview. It doesn’t contain anything too juicy, like the various confirmed death spoilers Bleeding Cool has been reporting on, or anybody’s penis, Batman or otherwise, but hey, they can’t all be winners.
Some copy from the press release:
Booster Gold and Harley Quinn both know how to cause plenty of chaos, so it’s surprising and more than a little sweet to see them away from the action and enjoying a meal at a sleepy diner in this exclusive sneak peek at HEROES IN CRISIS #1, the debut chapter in Tom King and Clay Mann’s much anticipated new comic book event.
Set at Sanctuary, a top-secret compound in rural Nebraska where heroes can go when the stress of their ongoing battle against evil gets to be too much, Heroes in Crisis is a tragic, gripping mystery that will unspool over nine powerful issues which promise to change the DC Universe forever. Sanctuary is a place of healing and recovery…at least until a horrifying event leaves many of the heroes there dead. Even worse, Booster and Harley look like they may be to blame. That can’t be right, can it?
Fortunately, in this preview the only thing they seem to be guilty of is indulging in some freshly baked pie. But as any farmer in tornado country can tell you, things are always quietest before the storm…
Check out the preview below.

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?
