Happy Halloween, boys and ghouls! There’s very little as haunting as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a fact to which I can attest and an issue explored in Heroes in Crisis. The first issue was released September 26, at a time many were wrestling with the trauma of the Kavanaugh hearings. A lot of people were forced to relive their worst traumas during that awful incident, and it’s a bigger issue than I think this or any other comic can properly address. However, I admire the heck out of Tom King for trying, and for sharing his own trauma and channeling it into his work. HiC #2 was released today, I’ll give it a read and, in all likelihood, discuss it tomorrow.
Original episode description, from September 27, 2018:
I tried to distract myself from the depressing hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by taking up some of my listener’s suggestions for comics and comic-inspired media, and – well, it was a bad day.
Neither Tom King’s Heroes in Crisis nor the trailer for Dark Phoenix did much to improve my mood – although Daredevil Season 3 looks awesome, and I look forward to seeing whether DD is in fact Born Again when it premieres on Netflix October 19.
