    Brian Buccellato may not have been the original architect of the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic book, but he can certainly deliver the emotional punches necessary to make the big moments meaningful. Read Full Review

    With a lot of things going on with the characters here, we also get a push from Olympus at the very end here that sets the stage for what could be the larger battle of the Year at hand. It wouldn't surprise me if it's a feint, but the potential for a lot of fun there, and for Batman to end up either being a thorn in their side or an ally, could lead to a lot of fun " particularly since his team is all women now and the Amazon's are ready to attack for Zeus. The book spends its time well in a few different areas " I loved Harley's taking over of the Arrow-Cave and stashing Billy Batson there until he turns into a less-creepy-situation form for her " and I'm really curious to see just how far this event will go that involves Zeus.

    Last issue, I made a point of saying that Injustice is always going to be a good read, even when it has weak links. This issue is no exception: a roller coaster of action with just a few hitches in the ride. I love that Buccellato is exploring the relationships of the principal characters more without sacrificing any of the momentum that he's begun to build. It looks like all-out war is on the horizon for the next issue, perhaps with Team Supes and Team Bats having to combine their forces to keep the immortals from taking the planet from them by force. You'll definitely want to pick up the next issue to see what midpoint turn this story might take. There's still plenty of issues left for lots of exciting things to happen. What do you think Injustice has in store? Read Full Review

    This is the second week in a row that I've been disapointed by Injustice.  I have loved this book since the first issue so it upsets me when I can't recommend it.  I really hope that Brian Bucellato can shake things up and get things back on track.  It's not too late, but time is running out.

    With a war that has tainted both sides, Injustice has brought its own version of backup to the party. The Greek Gods now step onto the playing field to teach both sides a lesson but will it be enough to stop the 4 year war? Read Full Review

    In conclusion, this issue isn't bad, and should definitely be picked up if you're reading the entire 5-year series like I am. It feels like filler at times, and seems to have lost the real-world sense that Year One/Year Two had done really well (I mean, are there any people that aren't superheroes still alive?), but it's overall clearly a continuation of the story into the coming war. The art remains lacking, but seeing as how it has since Year One chapter 1, I don't see there being much of a change there anytime soon. All that being said, I'm looking forward to watching Superman (and possibly Wonder Woman?) kick some Amazon ass next week. Read Full Review
