My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I just heard that Tom Taylor is due to come off of this title in the near future…
I get it, but man does that SUCK. Injustice has got to be one of the best, if not the best title DC is putting out right now. And thats coming from a guy that typically isn’t a fan of alternate universes or video game tie-ins. Usually hate the shit. (Cuz it usually sucks). Injustice continues to be the exception(for me at least).
Year 2 Vol. 2 picks up right where Vol. 1 left off. Still something of the Green Lantern show in this one, but that’s ok. Haven’t enjoyed Lantern stories like this since the Sinestro Corps War and some of Johns other Lantern epics. Sinestro continues to be great in this one. I was all over the place with loving and hating the guy. Still hate Supes. And Hal….what a dick. Taylor has gotten me to feel passionate about characters I rarely, if ever, felt anything about. Black Canary also shines. Loved her toe to toe with Superdouche. Lots of great moments that make this a must read title. Even if some of it has been done before, Taylor does it well.
The artwork continues to excite. Bruno Redondo, Mike Miller, and Tom Derenick make a great team. The transitions between artists is never jarring and none of them disappoint.
The only thing I would have liked to have seen is a little more of Bats and maybe add a few more of DC’s iconic villains to the mix. But trust me, these are very minor complaints. I wanna believe Tom is working towards something with this title.
If you are a fan of any of the earlier volumes, PICK IT UP. If you haven’t read any of these collections, you’re missing out on some greatest stuff DC has put out in a long time. Start at the beginning and catch up. It’s DOPE.
