Episode 155: Chris Burnham Interview • HEROES IN CRISIS Review


HEROES IN CRISIS #1 is one the most beautiful books you will look at this year! The story needs to catch up to the art, which is not a negative. The art is just so damn good.

Welcome back to the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast! This week we chat about Tom King’s Heroes in Crisis, and artist Chris Burnham calls in to talk about his latest book DIE! DIE! DIE! written by Robert Kirkman of The Walking Dead fame.

DIE! DIE! DIE! is an over the top political, social commentary on today’s society, very reminiscent of Garth Ennis’ The Boys. The first story arc is a definite must-read.

Heroes in Crisis #1 is a gorgeous book. Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey have elevated comics to a new standard with issue one. Tom King comes out guns blazing in the first issue. If the issue is real, this fan will have an issue. If it is for shock value, that may be an issue as well. With eight more issues to go, this is a marathon, not a sprint. Trust the storyteller at this point.

After you read Heroes in Crisis #1, come back and let us know what you thought of the first issue.

About Heroes in Crisis #1:
HEROES IN CRISIS, there’s a new kind of crisis threatening the heroes of the DC Universe, ripped from real-world headlines by New York Times bestselling author Tom King and artist Clay Mann: How does a superhero handle PTSD? How do DC’s Trinity—Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman—handle massacres and mass shootings? Welcome to Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes who’ve been traumatized by crime-fighting and cosmic combat. Kicking off this limited series, something goes inexplicably wrong. 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?
