By | Feb 1, 2019 | Reviews

“Heroes in Crisis” reaches the halfway mark and the two main intentions on this series become clearer. The combination of a core detective story, with an appealing discussion on trauma, mental disorder and paths to recovery (or lack thereof) make for a complex and interesting package, and one that is better appreciated upon multiple read-throughs.
