Heroes In Crisis #1 by Tom King, Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey arrives this Wednesday, but you can read the first six pages now at DC Comics’ blog.

Set at Sanctuary, a top-secret compound in rural Nebraska where heroes can go when the stress of their ongoing battle against evil gets to be too much, Heroes in Crisis is a tragic, gripping mystery that will unspool over nine powerful issues which promise to change the DC Universe forever. Sanctuary is a place of healing and recovery…at least until a horrifying event leaves many of the heroes there dead. Even worse, Booster and Harley look like they may be to blame. That can’t be right, can it?

The preview might look like it says ten pages, but the first four are alternate covers. Also, two of the six story pages are a single-image double-page spread.

I don’t get very excited whenever a new “Crisis” pops up, but I have to admit the unusual tone of these pages has got me curious. Read the full preview here.
