You've seen all the clues. You've heard the testimony and eavesdropped on the secret confessions of the World's Greatest Super Heroes. Now, with the killer revealed, it's time to find out why. What could have driven a hero to the brink, to turn a savior into a murderer? Rifts will form between old allies, and the trinity of Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman will have their leadership challenged and will question their own judgment. Sanctuary has become something they never imagined...and it's still potentially carrying on without them!

    For a book that promised to deliver a meta-textual story, we are now eight issues down, we are down to the last 22 pages. Will it have a happy ending? Will it have any impact on anything at all? As a warning message about how PTSD affects a person, with the amount of time it has taken to get here, I am not sure how effective it is. At this stage, i think I can applaud the idea, even if at times the execution has been a tad wayward. Read Full Review

    Heroes In Crisis #8 is a murder mystery denouement filtered through a half-finished PSA - in its efforts to perhaps elevate the genre’s exploration of grief and the hero’s burden through the framework of a more traditional caped crimefighter tale, it winds up being half of both, and neither as satisfying as a team like King and Gerads are capable of delivering.

    In the end, my own confession is I'm still not sure how I feel about HiC, other than bad right now today. This comic is trying something, and it's complex. I'd like to see it in full before calling it a failure. I also haven't entirely processed why this story makes me feel so awful. It could be the wrong character or characters are involved, or the disorientation at the start muddied my emotional investment, or simply that mass murder is inherently awful, regardless of its context.

    The issue is one that I both love and hate. There's so much right and so much wrong at the same time. This will easily be the most controversial superhero comic of the year and folks will be up in arms. Unfortunately, that emotion is what stands out most of the issue. For a series about PTSD it has been hit and miss as far as connecting emotionally with those hurting and this issue is a prime example of that flaw. Read Full Review

    The killer is revealed in this issue, but despite all of the revelations, I still don't believe the reveal is the truth. Regardless, whatever is the truth, I feel as though it doesn't matter. This story has gone nowhere, and with a mere twenty-two pages left, I can't imagine that it actually will go anywhere. The interesting aspects of Heroes in Crisis are long gone, and now I just want the story to end so we can move on. There are too many holes, conveniences, and examples of piss-poor characterization for me to remotely care about this book or take it seriously" And that really is a shame because this book, as a whole, does have moments of greatness.

    This is issue as well as the series was so disappointing. What readers will find is an issue that explains the entire story. Sounds great right? Wrong! A comic that felt like a mystery with clues sprinkled in along the way turned into a writer withholding information for 7 issues, giving absolutely no clues, so he can drag readers along to make them THINK it’s a mystery when in all actuality King tried to make this series way to deep giving readers pointless and useless information for no good reason.

    This issue was so upsetting with a conclusion that appeared to be wrapped up in an issue that leaves fans scratching their head as to why he would do this to Wally West, a character that literally stood for Rebirth, and how he more

    Heroes in Crisis continues to be long and painful read, bastardizing everything its characters stand for, all in the name of barely coherent, incompetent deconstructionism.

    King tries, and fails time and time again, to do what giants like Alan Moore (Watchmen, Miracle Man) did before him, taking the concept of a good superhero fighting bad super villains, and twisting it around, giving it brutally realistic depth and switching black and white for an entire spectrum of greys.
    Here, in this series, however, this deconstruction was done so poorly and obnoxiously, it's hard to take it seriously even for a moment. Which is a problem, considering this piece of filth is set in the main continuity, thus can't be simply disposed, for more

    It’s confirmed the real “crisis” of Heroes in Crisis is Tom King’s writing.

    I expected a poor resolution to this story as by issue #5 barely any progress was noted in the story. I was unprepared to how absolutely abysmal this book and entire event would come to be.
    This is absolute crap, irredeemable garbage through and through. I do not recommend anyone read much less buy any issue from this title.

    Wally’s character is assassinated. Through his actions he is now a scumbag.

    Harley Quinn is confirmed as an actual patient as Sanctuary, a recovery/rehab center for HEROES, something she is decidedly NOT and thusly HAS NOT PLACE BEING THERE.

    Now, while there is one issue left for King to fix this mess of a story up, it doesn't change the fact that this event was a tremendous failure, from start to finish. The peak of this mess (unless King REALLY outdoes himself with issue #9) comes from this issue's complete bastardization of Wally West. I really don't know what to say in regards to this character arc, aside from it being completely out of pocket and contradictory to the foundation of what Wally's character has been built upon since his re-introduction 3 years ago; part of me is just baffled by the inane logic that led up to this point (the whole "few billion years, few seconds" thing is simply awful), and part of me isn't sure where they'll take things from here.

    Perhaps this story works for the team behind it. Perhaps this is a meaningful psychotherapy for the writer and artists. I can respect that and I understand it. I give this series a low score because it doesn't work for me and it has affected negatively some of my friends. Yes, it's "just comics" but as comics can affect you in a positive way, so they can in a negative way. There's not a lot to say here. This issue was spoiled before the series started and so is #9 for those interested.
    I have no problem with sad stories, stories that make your heart cry. One of my favorite books is Secret Six and it's full of sad, depressing moments. And so is Clean Room. Which also has more gore and violence.

    SPOILER in this review:

    I surprisingly overall liked this issue, because it makes a lot of sense.
    My problem with Rebirth, when it first started was, that it concentrated way too much on the heroes, because only they seemed to remember their Pre52 life, while the villains were totally left out. It also never made sense to me, that the heroes just could live with memories of 2 lives& could deal with them. Having memories of 2 different lives would turn everyone crazy& like it or not, but most of the heroes are just humans. HIC adresses this problem.

    I am really over DC's event comics that are not what DC promises. The reveal feels convoluted and outside the character of the murderer. DC continues to get a pass on these books that are supposed to rewrite the status quo but never do. Doomsday Clock never is out in a timely manner and we have long passed the promise of the importance of Dr. Manhattan being a major part of the DC Universe. Dark Knights Metal though many enjoyed( I did not) was quickly overshadowed by the weekly Justice League relaunch. Almost every New Age of Heroes book has been cancelled. DC Black Label got bogged in controversy and DC did not stand by their product but the extremely slow release schedule of every title makes it seem like an afterthought.

    Why does DC hate its red headed characters?

    Ive been a Wally fan since Wolfman and Perez New Teen Titans, then read all of his Flash solo series when he got the mantle, well into the fantastic Mark Waid run.

    He was my favorite character on the Justice League tv show, which is my favorite cartoon series of all time.

    Grant Morrison's JLA had some of the best flash moments ever, and it was Wally.

    This issue would be very sad for me if I hadnt burst out laughing at how god fing awful the way the "accident" happens.

    Oh my god, this is so needlessly convoluted and stupid. Not to mention, the dialogue here is atrocious. Like Bendis on his worst days. You want to tell a story about a hero driven to the brink and lashing out? Maybe don't spend the bulk of it on a mystery that intentionally goes nowhere because that hero, that character we're supposed to feel for, also methodically set up a murder scene, framed two innocent people, and distracted the superhero community for days (or was it longer like "The Price" suggested?) just so he could admit to accidentally killing people? Also, computers don't work the way King thinks they do so that whole part about Flash finding all the data and putting it back together in an instant is shenanigans.

    The art was fine but this story was so bad that even that couldn’t save it for me. Tom King seems to have never read anything with Wally West in it before because he knows nothing of this character and how he thinks. He also seems to not understand how computers work. He takes Rebirths symbol for hope and makes him an “accidental “ mass murderer by losing control of the speed force? Pretty sure that the last time the speed force unleashed a storm like that people got powers. Anyway, Wally then goes around and frames Harley and Booster, the guy who has saved countless lives is now framing innocent people. Wow. Then he goes into the future to kill himself?

    He is the only one, who could fake this, who had the power and the knowledge to do how. I get that. He was a broken guy, I get that. In some way, it makes sense.

    If it wasn't for this huge issue that Kings has. He doesn't change the story to fit the characters. He changes the characters to tell his story. And it shows. King tries his best to tell why Wally did it. But it's still wrong, doesn't work and the revelation feels so forced.

    We get the answer, but to what end? King almost always has great endings to short series so I am trying to reserve judgment. But it seems like one other artist or editor involved would say "hey is this a great idea after bringing Wally back, only to make him a accidental killer and then cover-upper?"

    Wally has his own Scarlet Twilight and I predicted it from the first issue. As expected the response is quite wild, but this issue is not entirely without merit. It does show a dark look at mental illness, and it isn't like the seeds weren't planted since Rebirth. What sucks is the execution. I feel like Wally snapping and doing it of his own free will would have been a lot heavier, instead he sees he isn't alone and loses control of the speed force, which makes it look like an accident and that he hates the idea of other people sharing similar pain. Also, instead of looking to his friends for help and explaining that he didn't mean it... he executes an overly convoluted plan tha more

    "I lost that control"

    Disappointment. It's the feeling that accompanied this book from issue #3 onward for me and for many others from the very beginning. Now everything is revealed. The whos, the hows, all of it. And it is utterly disappointing.

    Not everything is in this issue is in Crisis though. Surprisingly, the dialogue doesn't feel very Tom King. The word "yeah" is used, I think, once maybe twice. Some of the explanations that are presented to us make sense. At least as much as anything can in this book.

    - Moving people with such speed, they don't even notice; well he is supposedly the fastest of the fast;

    This comic deserves a 5 based only on the art, which is phenomenal. Unfortunately, the story simply doesn't match up. I take umbrage with the pacing of the story, the convoluted manner in which it got to this point, the treatment of Wally West as a character, and the simple fact that the payoff wasn't anywhere near as good as it was worked up to be.
    I have read the recent Batman and Mister Miracle runs by Tom King, as well as Heroes in Crisis, and I'm beginning to see a pattern emerging. All of his central characters suffer from depression and seem to be weak husks of people behind their masks, with no resolution and a lack of fight. They seem to only be puttin more

    I visited my Local Comic Shop late this week and by the time I got there, the ending had already been spoiled. Actually, I'm not sure if you can really talk about this comic without discussing the reveal so Ill get it out of the way. 

    Wally West, traumatized from the events of DC Rebirth and the loss of his wife and children has snapped and is revealed to be the murderer behind the events at Sanctuary. 

    So my working theory walking into this issue was th more

    Still a better story than Identity Crisis! There, I said it.

    I have extremely mixed feelings about this. Yes, it's a complete assassination of one of my favourite characters of all time. I hate what's happening here, and there's no justification for it. But on the other hand, I found the writing to be much better than on the previous issues, and I've quite enjoyed reading this issue, besides the fact that it also made me furious as well. As I've said, I've got very mixed feelings and I am very confused about all of this. The art has been fantastic, though.

    Ok… I get it, Wally is having a tough go of things. His family is gone and the love of his life doesn’t know who he is. That sucks and I sympathize. That does not give King an excuse to ruin Wally’s legacy. His revival was considered a “return of hope,” but what did we get instead? A bizarre explanation as to why Wally hacked Sanctuary, accidentally killed everyone and then proceeded to cover it up in the most convoluted way possible..? It reads like a pathetic D-list villain’s origin story, not the first-string Leaguer the Flash is known as. I was one of the few who really enjoyed the direction HiC was taking, humanizing gods and giving an insight to some of their biggest troubles was interesting to me. This took it way too far more

    There are so many other ways this series could have drawn upon the issue of mental illness and given a pounding finale. I have no problem with who the killer is but the story is wrecked by an oversimplified story, a lazy reveal who is the killer and worst of all, a boring story that could have been made far more exciting.
