Injustice 2 ends here-so as the story segues into/sets up the Injustice 2 video
game, we take one final look back.  Batman and Superman's alliance was torn apart years ago by the events of Injustice. But when Bruce Wayne receives
unexpected visitors, he is reminded of a happier time when Clark was his savior. A time of the World's Finest friendship.

    I'm too verbose to be speechless (see above), but this issue is a triumph of character work. I don't play video games and I have no idea what this game is like, but I wish this comic would continue under this creative team. Would the main DCU Batman be allowed to grow and emote this much. It doesn't matter if you've read any issue of this series or none, if you have a basic understanding of Superman and Batman you will enjoy it. Everyone should buy this comic! Can I give this a 6 out of 5? Read Full Review

    This annual issue is a fitting capstone for a series that few expected to be any good, much less a New York Times' best-seller and critical darling. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Nov 27, 2018

    The Injustice 2 Annual #2 was another impressive read from Tom Taylor who really drew the emotional draw cards out for this issue. It was a great comparison seeing close friends Batman and Superman where they once were to where they are now in their lives. Furthermore, it set some perspective into the universe of Injustice again by revisiting the catalyst of this alternate timeline, particularly from a point of friendship and broken friendships. The issue is also spectacularly draw and really brings the emotions to life thanks to the excellent Bruno Redondo. Read Full Review

    Tom Taylor's multi-year run on this comic book adaptation of the Injustice-verse comes to a close with Injustice 2 Annual #2, and he drops the mic with what's actually one of the best Batman and Superman stories in years. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Nov 23, 2018

    Injustice 2 Annual #2is unexpected. It's not a grand finale chocked full of spectacle and bombast. Rather, it's something much better. This comic is a character-driven meditation on family and forgiveness. Taylor's script is emotional, pulling on its readers' heartstrings. Redondo's pencils are splendid, highlighting the gravitas of melodrama. In short, this bookend issue is brilliant. Give it a read. It won't disappoint. Read Full Review

    Final Verdict: 8.5" Tom Taylor's writing, combined with the expert artwork, colors, and lettering, creates a truly tragic tale to close out the “Injustice 2” comics. Read Full Review

    While this might not be flashiest ending for the mostly fantastic Injustice 2 series, it's the right one; one that captures both the true relationship between Batman and Superman and its perversion here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 25, 2018

    Tom Taylor, Bruno Redondo and Rex Lokus did a great job closing this series out with Injustice 2 Annual #2. In exploring Batman and Superman's friendship from where it once was to what it became over the course of Injustice Taylor was able to give greater depth to how the sequel game started. If you are a fan of the Injustice video games I highly recommend checking out Injustice 2 Annual #2. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Nov 21, 2018

    This is a series of good scenes that don't quite come together to make something great, but it's still captivating reading. The intentions and themes are better than the story itself, which isn't bad just loosely constructed. Taylor gets some strong character work out of the Kents and Lois, and anything that attempts to reinforce the strong friendship between Superman and Batman is okay by me. At the very least, if you felt like the Injustice 2 comic lacked a proper ending, this will surely suffice. Read Full Review

    It's kinda odd. This is wrong setting for a good Batman and Superman story.

    But Taylor still does it. Awesome Batman/Superman -story. And a great send-off.

    This makes the Injustice -series even more heartbreaking.

    Just a perfect ending to one of the wildest rides in DC history. I wasn't prepared to love this comic as much as I did. This is one of the most touching Superman-Batman stories I've read and there have been so many great ones it almost seems like there'd be nothing more to tell. Now that I've read it I can't imagine ending this terrific series in any other way.

    Injustice/Injustice 2 took us to every corner of the DCU and it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. But at its heart it was a Superman-Batman story. I'd almost forgotten that until the final issue brought it all back home.

    I'm trying really hard not to give out 10's lately but that's been so I have somewhere to go when I'm beyond blown away. This kind of more

    This is how you humanize characters. Tom King needs to read this and take notes.

    A surprisingly good ending to this series considering it's largely a flashback. It's bittersweet to once again see what Clark and Bruce were like before the events of the game, but it works well here because Tom Taylor is such a good writer who has spent a lot of time with these characters in this setting. He writes the Kents so well and their interactions are great with Bruce, the dialogue in the bar between Jonathan and Bruce is great. And in the ending, Bruce finally shows some emotion, but too late...really makes you think about this series Art is also great, Redondo always brings his A-game and gave this title a very distinct style. I'm going to miss it so much and I'm so glad I own every issue. I love the games and the comics as long more
