    While I'm hopeful that the series moves onto some more interesting material soon with the larger fight that's going on as it adapts the overall game narrative, I suspect we'll be bogged down in Harley/Joker relationship stuff throughout it. And that does have its place, it's just that it feels so overwhelming at this point when there's so much ground to cover. There are some very fun moments here and I'm hopeful that Harley's gang continues to find a voice and role in the series, but I'm hoping for something a bit more concrete soon. This chapter definitely makes out better with Pop Mhan involved once again as his take on action is solid and fun to watch the first, second, and third time you go through it and catch all the details. Here's to some change and progress in the coming issues… Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Mar 15, 2017

    Christopher Sebela balances the burgeoning turf war between Batman and Superman with Harley and Joker's love-hate train and a whole of magic tricks from that other realm we haven't seen since Year Three of the original series. This issue has a stronger coherence than the last one and we seem to be finally building toward the kind of cataclysm Injustice is known for, even if the stakes feel rather low at this juncture. Maybe a good knock-down, drag-out fight between Bats and Supes will perk this up. Or maybe we've just seen it all too many times at this point. Derliz Santacruz's art (with inks by Andy Owen) is the highlight of the issue: his Harley is beautiful and believable, and his Joker looks like he stepped right out of the video game.

    This chapter is mostly action which really bothered me. I would have liked more story to keep the series going but it's taken an abrupt halt to have this random Croc and Bane fight. The art is still really good, Harley being the shining part of it. It's clear, so far, that this series is only to be a Harley and Joker outlet that they just slapped the Injustice name onto it. I yet to see the point of the Injustice name yet but we shall see as we continue the story. Read Full Review
