We have encountered a major problem within the community of geekery. My fellow nerds and my fandoms were once a safe escape from the rest of the world. When the jerks of the world were making it hard to get through the day, I could turn to my fictional escapes, and to my friends – online and in real life – that shared the same passions. I could turn to Instagram or Twitter or wherever. I remember being excited for new adaptations of comics or books or games, whatever, just because I had a new version of something I cared about to enjoy.
But things have been going downhill for a while now, and not just for me.

“The secrets of the DC Universe are hacked! Sanctuary wasn’t supposed to keep records, but now that the A.I. is compromised, superhero secrets are leaking all over the ’Net. Booster and Harley set aside their differences to focus on who they believe is the real killer (assuming one of them isn’t lying, that is). Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash continue to investigate the mysterious murderer. The answer can be found in Sanctuary…but is it safe to go digging in the crime scene?”
Heroes in Crisis issue 5 is out today, and Tom King is here to tug on our heartstrings again.
I decided to ask my followers on Instagram (@angelyoung13 for anyone interested) to suggest some favorites they’d like to know. So, here were some of my top favorites I was asked for:
Let’s talk comics, shall we?
One of the quickly rising characters DC has introduced us to recently is The Batman Who Laughs. He became popular with Dark Knights Metal, the badass universe Scott Snyder envisioned and brought to life with Greg Capullo and so many others in 2017/2018.

I was lucky enough to hear Scott and some of the others discuss it all at the very beginning during Fan Expo Canada.
