    This issue felt too short, simply because it was primarily a fight, but the last page will absolutely make you wait in eager anticipation for #18 out next week. Read Full Review

    This chapter left me debating between 3 and 4-stars for a good amount of time. There's a handful of smaller criticisms and they really do begin to add up, but I'm guessing a number of them won't be an issue if you're not all that into power levels and what not. Despite the complaints, I was still very entertained by this chapter and it did leave me looking forward to the next one. The focus on character isn't as strong as it once was and the main plot is moving at a gazillion miles per hour, but given all of the plot threads Buccellato has to work with, it's understandable he's trying to give each of them some progress in some very, very fun and exciting ways. It's looking like things are about to get even more chaotic, but once the dust settles from that next brawl, it would be nice to see things slow down just a bit so the series can offer a little more heart and personality. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the action-packed madness. Read Full Review

    Injustice is, at this point, all about throwing the big fight at the characters and getting some of this hashed out. It's been brewing for quite a few issues now and the skirmishes has most everyone, especially on Superman's side, ready to get it done. That doesn't mean there aren't complications, as Batman always has a trick or two up his sleeve and Constantine's self preservation is always a factor. What makes it more interesting this time around is that Diana has her own ethics and morality that isn't playing well with what Superman is doing and even Superman feels like they're going too far in some circumstances. But he's set up all of this for awhile, perhaps without really realizing it, and is now starting to pay the price for the actions that he's sanctioned. There's a lot of fun action with this and some good dialogue with the matchups, and a nice little tease at the start about what may really be going on with the Spectre too. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 20, 2015

    Injustice: Year Three continues to be a good book, but this is the first Buccellato penned issue that has me a little worried.  He has all the pieces for a great Injustice issue, but when they are all on the page, something just feels off.  I'll give him a little time to work on getting the voices of the cast heavy book and I hope he can capture the humor that Tom Taylor threw in among the crazy deaths and action.  For the most part, it's missing from this issue and while Xermanico and Bruno Redondo make everything look just right, the story and dialogue need a little spark to get up to par.

    Still pretty bad. Characters continue to be incredibly shallow, much like they've been for the whole series. Writing is flat, and the artwork is just lackluster. Not sure why websites like IGN and CBR drool over this so much, other than video game ad revenue, I guess.
