    Injustice 2 continues to be more than a mere video game tie-in book. In terms of quality, both in art and story, this is as fine a comic as you will find anywhere. It is one of my favorite titles and one I recommend whole-heartedly, even to those who haven't played the games. Read Full Review

    Injustice 2 #18 was a really fun read and once again I loved the characterisation of what Tom Taylor delivered and his unique look into this twisted version of the DCU. More importantly, he nails the characters perfectly and with the great dialogue and world building, Injustice 2 #18 was my favourite comic of the week. Add in the flawless art of Xermanico who creates some very dynamic and explosive panels and the words of Taylor with this art comes together very well. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 10, 2017

    Injustice 2 moves forward the storyline with the infiltration team well while not giving it a whole lot to do but instead making it more character driven. That's fine because the bulk of it is given over to one of my absolute favorite characters with Animal Man and provides insight as to why he aligned with Ra's. I don't expect to get these stories for all of those that have done so but I definitely appreciate it here. Taylor gives Sampere and Albarran a whole lot of fun material to put together with the natural elements as well as a good variety to the characters. It's a fast moving issue in a lot of ways but it merits slowing down and letting the emotional impact settle in when working through Buddy's story. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    This issue utilizes emotions from an angry Oliver to self-doubting Ma and Pa Kent to tell the story. While it's not looking good for Batman and his allies, it doesn't feel like it's gotten completely away from them. However, they've got to have a real win soon, otherwise it may be too late for the human race. Ra's plans keep escalating as Batman and team seem to be clutching at straws. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jan 18, 2018

    Taking the fight to Superman once again (though the Man of Steel remains in custody at this point). Nevertheless, Wonder Woman is soon to be a threat again and Ras is looming with his cohorts to obliterate humanity. Batman and his crew are looking to expand their team and the Teen Titans might fit the bill"if they can be rescued from the Phantom Zone. Not sure how I feel about Bats bringing more kids into the mix (it worked so well with Jaime Reyes, didn't it?). And our Dark Knight is likewise in hot water for putting Oliver and Dinah's kid at risk. But by all means, let's see if they can sae the Titans. They've got quite the SuperDefences to get through first! Read Full Review

    This isn't the smoothest issue Taylor has done, but he's going back to the beginning of the series, and the story is the better for it. Read Full Review

    After a few amazing issues this one was a bit of a letdown withit feeling like a mixed bag of either small nice character touches or beatingus over the head with telegraphing the cliffhanger ending. Read Full Review
