    This is above and beyond an amazing issue. The comedy is topnotch and it's crammed packed with phenomenal character writing. Read Full Review

    With a smaller focus here but an important one, Injustice 2 gets more of the crew together that Batman needs to deal with this new threat. We've see Ra's put together his team early on and how effective they are and that's no surprise considering how generally competent the character is presented as an adversary for Batman. I really loved what we got with Plas and Luke here and a lot of the appeal is through how Redondo and Albarran brought it to life. The pacing is great, the humor works well, and the visuals are just spot on – especially with the facial expressions we get for Luke in the first half. Very good stuff. Read Full Review

    A solid chapter for the title, despite little plot movement. The real win is the way in which the reader is drawn into Wonder Woman's character while knowing she's really one of Batman's enemies. Read Full Review

    Injustice 2 #16 was a breather after the epic ‘conclusion' with Ra's al Ghul and it did feel a little like a filler, however it was interesting to see how Diana was rescued from Paradise Island and thankfully with minimum causalities. I also enjoyed seeing Barry atone for his sins and to help Galaxor plus it was a well illustrated issue with all involved. Read Full Review

    This is one of those issues where the digital-first format makes the title feel more like an anthology, with the story drastically switching gears midway through and creating a briefly jarring effect. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Dec 21, 2017

    The two stories in Injustice 2 #16read fairly well on their own, but they aren't really all that special. The artwork on "Step Forward" is the better half here, but that's not saying much. It all moves pretty fluidly on the first trip through, but there is little of note to encourage a second pass. If you're part of the Injusticefaithful, pick it up"otherwise, there isn't anything that demands your attention. Read Full Review

    Injustice 2 #16 is the first time I can say that this probably read better digitally. Read Full Review
