We are looking at every single character, hundreds of superheroes, the same way we looked at Scott Free in Mister Miracle. There's no worlds blowing up or merging or little Lex Luthors trying to escape from things. I’m just tired of having the world end and everything. I feel like we’ve seen the world end. Sometimes I think every day we are looking at our own world ending. -- Tom King

The best part about “Knightmares” is I got to do seven, basically one-shot issues with seven different artists, seven different genres — I did horror, I did comedy, I did noir. But each of them was building on to something, and it was building on to the breaking of Batman, to this great fear. -- Tom King

Beyond being part 5 of the Knightmares arc, it’s a sneaky sequel to the (bizarrely) award winning Batman/[Elmer] Fudd. -- Tom King

It is unoriginally but accurately titled, “Batman’s Greatest Case.” It’s a sort of summation of my work on Batman drawn by two of the best Bat-artists ever. -- Tom King

I had my own crisis, I had my own what they probably call a ‘nervous breakdown.’ It was my wife’s birthday. I’m out with my family, I have three kids and a wife, and we are at a hamburger joint. Everything is going well, I’m about to start on Batman, I’m about to finish Vision, I’m on top of the world then all the sudden my chest is on fire. My wife and my kids take me outside, and say, “What’s wrong, Daddy?” I couldn’t write something more depressing. I got that tunnel vision, that blackout thing … I thought this was it, I was leaving this Earth. But my wife got me in the car, and we get to the emergency room. My father calls me, and we aren’t close so he never calls me, so that’s weird. He goes, “How are you doing?” I go, “Great, except for the emergency room and the death and all that shit.” And he says, “Your Grandma died.”

I was raised by my Grandma, and she died that day. I went up to the doctor and looked in his eyes, with my Grandma's death and my own insanity — I tell the doctor, “I think I’m having a panic attack, or I’m dying, so tell me if I’m dead or insane, and I hope I’m insane.” And he’s like, “Yeah, you’re crazy.” It was the most relieved I’ve ever been to be crazy. But what happened next is what [Heroes in Crisis] is about.

For the kind people who have been asking what my next new project will be, the sort of next Mister Miracle/Vision ambitions hopefully cool limited series thing, there’s a big hint/clue in Heroes in Crisis 5, which is out this Wednesday. -- Tom King

"If we did a story about the universe ending or worlds colliding, everyone would see right through that. That’s every Thursday. So we counter programmed. What makes it a ‘crisis,’ Earth-shattering as Marv Wolfman and George Pérez did, is that if you care about it, if you’re emotionally invested in it, if you feel it’s real in your heart. That’s what I’m going for, the emotional connection. Not just repeating those same beats." - Tom King

[I] have full confidence in the intelligence and patience of Batman readers to figure this out. -- Tom King

"Knightmares. The series will consist of six one shots, each building on the mystery at the end of 60: how do you break the Knight?" - Tom King

"To me, this project is a follow up to Mister Miracle—a realization of that original idea. Mister Miracle was a look at one small character, this C-list level character, and dissecting that person and looking at his impact on the entire DCU. We’re taking that concept and following it up by opening that to the entire DCU and looking at every single character the same way we looked at Scott Free." - Tom King
