    Just when you think Injustice Year Two would slow up, Tom Taylor hits you with the next big thing. This is surely the next arc in a story that shows how things will only get worse before they get better. As much as enemies, betrayal, and lies hurt in this world, chapter 5 proves that the truth can hurt just as much if not worse. There's no questioning the legitimacy of the answer Superman got in this issue, and that is one you'd never be able to scrub from your brain once you have sat there and processed it.

    For fans of Injustice, it is strange to have two issues that put the big shocks and twists on the back burner in lieu of strong character and story development, but the book is better for it.  We get more insight into how far back Superman's anger really goes and who he holds responsible.  Year Two is building to something bigger and more explosive than anything we have seen in the series yet and I can't wait to see it.

    Bruno Redondo continues the maintain the grueling pace this series demands, illustrating both chapters with his clean, expressive style. As the action heats up, this comic becomes more cinematic and movie-worthy than ever before. I can only hope Redondo is able to keep up this pace for as long as this conflict rages. Read Full Review

    I have a feeling a number of you won't be as enthusiastic as I am about this one (especially based on the community's response to the last installment), but I think Taylor's doing a great job delivering a huge amount of buildup. It's a concise, well-written and visually satisfying issue which assures the book will take a more explosive turn sooner rather than later. The tension continues to grow and there's no doubt it'll make you anxious to see what stems from this development. Now comes the tough part: waiting two more week's for the next chapter.

    The ongoing set-up of the first four issues starts to pay off now that open warfare has begun in earnest. Strap yourselves in: it might be a good time to jump on the wagon if you haven't been reading so far. The next issue promises an escalation, so start now to maximize the impact of the siege-to-come.

    The Daily Crate - Jennifer Bosier Mar 12, 2014

    With Sinestro literally whispering into Superman's ear, it's obvious we're in store for a Green Lantern conflict on a massive scale. The real question is on whose side Hal Jordan will find himself. Nothing good is in store for the Earth-born Lantern, but the question is how will this affect the rest of the galaxy?
