    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs Jun 21, 2017

    If you're a fan of the game or just DC comic books in general then this is a good series to read and Injustice 2 #4 is another fine installment. Alternative universes are fun because anything can happen, writers can go wild! While some action is present here, it's mainly about the story this issue which I enjoyed. There was even a tender moment between Harley and Ivy, not a romantic one but a nice friendly one nonetheless and in this new harsher world friendship is hard to find. Every issue leaves me eager for more so here is looking forward to number five. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison May 2, 2017

    Even if you're not a video game fan, Injustice 2 is an enjoyable comic from start to finish. With great characterization, fantastic artwork and a fair amount of humor, this is one book that should be on every comic lover's pull-list. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 2, 2017

    Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo don't seem to able to do any wrong when it comes to Injustice. We get a couple of great reunions, a scene that fans will love so much and a cliffhanger that will certainly make you come back next week. Seriously, you'll get more out of this one digital chapter than some "big" books give you in an entire arc. If you haven't given this series a try, jump on now while it's just getting started, I promise you, you won't regret it. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 21, 2017

    This was essentially a bridge issue until the next leg of the series, but thanks to a pair of exceptional character moments, this was an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 21, 2017

    The first half of this book is a mixed bag with some cool reveals, but the battle between Ra's and Harl is kind of over-the-top. Nevertheless, the second half pulls no punches in the awesome department: in fact, it just rips your heart out and stomps on it until you're squeaking for mercy like a pet toy being mauled in the jaws of a ferocious dog. Because no matter how rotten-awful Damian has been in this series (which is actually even more rotten-awful than he usually is in regular continuity), Taylor reminds us that he's still Batman's kid and that Batman loves him.

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto May 2, 2017

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason Jun 22, 2017

    There is an equal measure of heart and humour in the writing and the art is great. The characters are drawn differently than their regular counterparts which makes sense as it is an alternative reality. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 4, 2017

    The first four issues of Injustice 2 have been a blast and I don't see that dialing back anytime soon. While I would prefer a bit more relaxed material and worldbuilding in the mix I also know that's not the intent or style of this series, as much I wish there was more of it. Tom Taylor continues to craft a fun and engaging piece that's juggling several things already while having it wonderfully brought to life by Redondo and Albarran, two creators who definitely work well together. The fun is really just beginning here and the excitement already feels like it's about to push the needle past ten and I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Jun 21, 2017

    I'm a huge fan of this art style, even with its dusk back drop it still pops with vibrance. I also absolutely love Harley in this comic, I wish Tom would be more involved in other versions of her. It'd be fantastic if he got involved in making an animated movie. I just love his characterizations. His dialogue between characters are always so natural and smooth. Even though much didn't happen in this issue it was still very solid, and I can't wait to see what Tom Taylor has for us next. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Jun 21, 2017

    Injustice 2 #4 is beautifully illustrated by Daniel Sampere who really captures the soul of the DC Universe and even though this is not the world we all know and love, it's familiar yet equally disturbing. Writer Tom Taylor also excels at bringing these characters to life and really gets inside their heads. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole May 3, 2017

    Every comic book and video game fan I know is beyond excited for Injustice 2, the video game, to release on May 16. This book is the prequel to the storyline that will be explored in the upcoming video games Story Mode. Alternate realities and warped versions of the heroes we know and love are always an interesting read because anything can happen and usually does. Despite the fact the entire story line of the Injustice series is set into motion by the murder of a pregnant Lois Lane, another misogynistic and over-used plot device where a woman is brutally killed to further the story of the man, I love this alternate take on the Justice League and look forward to learning more about what is happening in this world as the series and game releases.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 22, 2017

    If you love Harley Quinn and Batman then this is an issue you will cherish. There is some great character work with Batman that would be at home in any incarnation of the Dark Knight. The Harley Quinn part makes the issue uneven, despite moving the story forward. Too much Harley can be too much to take. Read Full Review
