    Injustice doesn't do a lot new here or really move forward either of the main storylines much, but it provides for some good incremental nudges while making it clear where the lines are drawn at this point. There will be players on both sides that overstep, but we're moving into that phase where it's just going to be an almost black and white situation in a sense. Buccellato handles it well, though I wish we had time for more scenes with Damian as well as a stronger dialogue between Wonder Woman and Superman, but that's just me wanting more right away. With solid art from the team and a smooth flow about the whole thing, there's a lot to like here as the buildup continues. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Mar 3, 2016

    Superman and Batman are back to the sort of skirmishing we saw early on in the series, though the players have been brought down a notch now that the A-game has been mostly decimated. There are still plenty of interesting characters on the board, however, and Buccellato makes good (though brief) use of the Rogues here. With Bizarro now on the scene and Lex strapped to make little green pills, it should be interesting to see yet another tip in the balance of power. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 3, 2016

    Injustice: Year Five has offered a necessary shift in focus for the long-running series. However, it's not really Batman and Superman who are benefiting so much as their allies. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Garrett Walz Mar 8, 2016

    The art by Derenick is good when it's non-zoomed in panels because the detail, especially in the character's faces, are a little out of focus when a character is up front and center. The art still fits into this story as many of Derenick drawn characters look similar to the art throughout this whole story. The art by Redondo is awesome and it's the art I was looking forward to in this book. The characters look detailed and the emotions layers that every character is dealing with, is right at face value. Readers don't have to look too deep into the art to figure it out. Redondo's Bizarro looks incredible. The art from these two looks fantastic together and it definitely suits an issue that needed character emotion and drive against one another! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 20, 2016

    This was an okay issue of Injustice and while I like a quieter issue now and again, I don't want it from this book.  It's still worth the $0.99 entrance fee, if only for Bruno Redondo's art.  It's tough to recommend this book to newcomers as it has a very long history behind it, but I can recommend it to people who bailed on the book recently.  Just come on back and enjoy the ride.

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Mar 4, 2016

    Despite some solid action scene with Bizarro battling the Rogues, these chapters were good, but not great. They still have me excited to see Bizarros role in this story get more fleshed out now that he has stepped out into the light so to speak. Read Full Review
