Superman’s increasing hold over the Earth has concerned the Guardians of the Universe.

So under the direction of the Guardians, two more Lanterns – Guy Gardner and John Stewart – are sent on a diplomatic mission to Earth to see the effect of Superman’s rule.

    I'll be blunt: I love this issue. Not only does it do a tremendous job building the hype for what's to come, but it's incredibly well-written and consistently good looking. It'll make you laugh, it'll hit you right in the feels, and it'll absolutely make you excited for the series' future. There's been a whole lot of buildup in this volume so far, and, based on the writer's history, I'd like to believe that Taylor will make the upcoming showdown well worth the wait. We all know Superman's regime will still be in power 3 years from this point, but this series has proved time and time again that knowing the future hardly takes away from what occurs in the present. Needless to say, I'm stoked to see what what'll happen next in YEAR TWO. Seriously, you should be reading this series. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 25, 2014

    With this series, every time you think things can't get any more complicated and awful, they do. Even the most delicate alliance between the likes of greedy Sinestro and rogue Superman spells the worst kind of trouble for the Green Lantern forces and Earth. Meanwhile civil disobedience ramps up in Gotham with an unlikely alliance forming up around outstanding leadership. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 25, 2014

    Injustice: Year Two has been about the journey, the destination and the multiple pit stops in between.  Issue #6 continues the greatness with Tom Taylor taking his time to develop his characters and the messed up World they live in.  Things are about to explode and with Bruno Redondo on art, I guarantee it will look great when it does.  Every comic book fan should be reading this book.

    I really cant say enough good things about this series and this may have been the best issue since Year Two kicked off. While it is anything but action-packed, it is thick with rising tension and hints of larger conflicts to come. The worst thing I can say about this issue is that with 42 issues (counting the Year One annual) in the storys past and a game in the storys future, this isnt a great jumping on point, but again, if you arent already involved in this series, I highly recommend picking up Year One. If you have any interest in DCs Elseworld-type stories, I feel fairly certain this one will pull you in. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 25, 2014

    Injustice Year Two #6 is doing exactly what you want from this series. Big things are coming for all who are involved and Tom Taylor knows how to work those angles so that there's never a dull moment. For the number of characters you see in a chapter, in some way they all feel relevant to the bigger picture. That is something I continue to like as you know that everyone has a stake in this fight. Whatever is to come next with the Green Lanterns, all you need to know is that war is coming. Read Full Review

    The Daily Crate - Jennifer Bosier Mar 26, 2014

    I'm torn on Injustice: Year Two #6. If you've been keeping up with the series, this snail's pace will feel familiar and possibly “okay.” There are obvious, crucial pieces of information in here for future issues but it's hard to keep the spark alive for this series. I've ended the last two issues with an eyeroll, and that doesn't bode well for my interest. Surely I can't be the only one bored with this? Read Full Review
