Injustice 2 #1 from start to finish is one exciting book; it takes place in various locations and features various characters. Don’t let the thought of that drive you away though — even though there are multiple stories to follow in this issue there’s a good amount of time spent with each story to ensure you understand who each person is and what is yet to come in future issues.
Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Juan Albarran, Bruno Redondo
Publisher: DC Comics
There’s some great storytelling courtesy of writer Tom Taylor that delivers some emotional and powerful dialogue. The conversation with Batman and Superman is a genuine work of art and has some captivating moments; you’ll catch yourself reading over it again and again because of how well it was delivered on the page.
Injustice 2 does well in ensuring the reader that even if you haven’t read the previous Injustice books, you can start fresh here. There are some minor details that may be a little confusing when you come across them, but it’s pretty self explanatory for new readers.
This book is important to read especially if you’re a fan of the game. There’s so much more to a story that a video game can only show a portion of. This comic book will lend more story to the Injustice 2 narrative and aside from telling more of a detailed story, you get to know and understand more about your characters and their personal journeys.
Injustice 2 #1 is an excellent issue all around that leaves the reader with laughs, cliffhangers, and jaw dropping moments that level the playing field for the upcoming game. This is a comic that even someone who has only played the games and never touched a comic could enjoy and find themselves picking up the next issue in excitement.
