Heroes in Crisis Reading Order

Written by Tom King and penciled by Clay Mann, Heroes in Crisis is a 2018-2019 DC event from the Rebirth Era, dealing with trauma and murder.

The story takes place at the Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes and reformed supervillains 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?

Nothing is essential for understanding the story. For those who want a better picture and understanding of why specific characters are at the Sanctuary, you can read:

The tie-ins are about dealing with the events.  For this reason, I opted to add Titans #27-28  on this list, even if DC didn’t collect them in the trade paperback above. Green Arrow #48-50, on the other hand, is more connected to No Justice than Heroes In Crisis, so I didn’t put them in this reading order.

What to read after Heroes in Crisis?

From the pages of Heroes in Crisis comes two spin-off series. The first one is the limited series Flash Forward, which continues Wally West’s story and set up Wall’s role in Death Metal. The second spin-off was Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, where they deal with the aftermath while coming to terms with each other.
