Nicaragua In Crisis or how I learned to love CIA and forget about the crimes.

You should definitely buy this book if you like Clay Manns art which (despite the problems with the portrayal of women) is very, very good. This issue is a gallery of Mann's art but there's zero plot. A filler issue. The "twists" and "revelations" were leaked before Heroes In Crisis #1 was published. The dialo more

Made an account just for this series. 32 year old with depression. Been fighting it my whole life. This book and especially the last two issues caused me to feel real shitty about it, spending my money to read this pile of crap. I've supported Tom King in everything he's done so far. But this is shit. From the treatment of characters I love and care to how mental health is portrayed in the book. I more

I keep reading it, because it affects so many characters. Could be true, but isn’t PTSD reliving trauma through flashbacks? I don’t think that was shown in any issue. As a fan of the villains& I’m reading comics just because of them, I don’t think they need to be aspirational, but that’s only my opinion. I understand if people have other expectations than me.

"I've battled with my thoughts, battled with my sexuality, I want both depicted correctly." How can King possibly depict your exact experiences?
