    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 18, 2017

    This book has transcended the video game tie in that it is and become a really great alternate Earth story featuring the greatest heroes of the DC Universe. Tom Taylor has found the right voice for these characters in an extreme situation while peppering in some nostalgia along the way. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison May 31, 2017

    I can think of no higher complement for a writer than this. Taylor took a character I'd rather not existed and told a story that made them likeable. Such is the skill that he displays every week in this series and such is the reason why I sing this series' praises. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs Aug 31, 2017

    While the previous issue certainly had more in the way of physical action, Injustice 2 #8 is still a solid experience. Yes, a reader can miss this issue and not lose anything too vital but fans will enjoy it. I'm personally a biased fan of Damian Wayne and his father, so while the moments were brief I liked how they showed Damien's humanity as he dealt with Alfred. Also, Blue Beetle returns, wanting to avenge Ted Kord's death. While not the most important issue in terms of story, this is still a good issue to pick up and read due to the good character moments coupled with humor and stellar artwork. Read Full Review

    Tom Taylor is a magnificent writer. It always surprises me how well he writes these heroes, especially Harley and Batman. The humor that was integrated into this issue was hilarious and not over done. My only hope is that Tom furthers his career and begins writing for the Justice League in continuity. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Aug 16, 2017

    Injustice 2 is a true rollercoaster ride thats getting more and more insane and although you want it to finish, you also want it to go on a little longer and if Taylors past work is any indication, the play-off is going be big and more importantly, a killer conclusion! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Aug 16, 2017

    This is one of those exciting comic books that doesn't need to rely on big splashy fight sequences to make it sing. We had a big splashy fight last go-round, and here's the aftermath, which easily could have been dull exposition and moving people around on the story chess board to set up the next big splashy fight. But Tom Taylor is an expert storyteller as always, predictably satisfying and tossing out a few surprises in the mix of it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 31, 2017

    This is a great character chapter of Injustice 2. While mostly a flashback, it's both bittersweet and paves the way for a redemption story down the road...or an even eviler one! Either way, the story and art kill it again and I can't recommend this series enough. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 17, 2017

    This issue should make long-time fans of the Injustice comics very, very happy. Tom Taylor has the opportunity to reconnect with one of his most memorable characters from the Injustice: Gods Among Us days, and that magic touch hasn't worn off one bit. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 2, 2017

    Injustice 2 does some very good stuff here with the quieter material, even if I wish it had spent more time working with Bruce and Connor as there's some interesting possibilities there. The flashback material with Alfred just made me all the more sad at his loss and remembering how it happened, but I really enjoyed the Damian material even though I typically don't care for the character. The series has lots of room to play with yet and this is some good foundational material that I'm sure we'll see being built upon later. The team here did a great job with this issue and I can't wait to see what's next to come. Read Full Review

    Nation Of Nerds - Federico Aug 21, 2017

    To sum up, really cool issue of Injustice 2, you could say that it is the calm before the storm. After you read this one, you definitely will want more, and now! This is the warm-up before Tom brings the action and Ifor one cannot wait! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto May 31, 2017

    I would have to say this is one of the weakest issues yet. Not because it is a necessarily bad story, but because it does little to contribute to the story except for the last bit. The last bit has a moment where Batman seems to want to inject Connor, Green Arrow and Black Canary’s son, which seems weird. However that isn’t out of character with this universe as people often do things that you wouldn’t necessarily expect them to do. Still this could be something new and different. Read Full Review
