    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 15, 2016

    Major character death is nothing new to Injustice, but some hurt worse than others and this one was painful as all-get-out. This world just got a lot bleaker for the loss of one of its wisest and most steadying characters, the death of whom may launch heroes on both sides of the regime into a grief-fueled holocaust. This is Buccellato at his best with art by Santucci that is both striking in its composition and powerful in its emotion. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 8, 2016

    While I really want to get some more story progression one of these weeks, the action on display this week was too good to ignore.  Superman vs Bizarro vs Solomon Grundy is a Battle Royal for the ages and while there wasn't a real winner, there was a loser.  It all ends with a peek at Superman's big plan and I can't wait to see it unfold.  Brian Buccellato gives us a fun slug fest and Iban Coello's art was outstanding.  Recommended.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 10, 2016

    Injustice has some fun things going on here and it sets up events that are to come with what Superman wants to do with Solomon Grundy. The bulk of the book is all about the action though and it succeeds well in this because Buccellato essentially just lets the power players here duke it out while trying to contain the fallout from it. Sometimes a slugfest is what you want and I definitely enjoy those in this series as the stakes always feel higher. His scripts are taken to the next level thanks to Coello here as he's really great and giving this a strong and dynamic look with all the action. The designs are solid and feel truer to the core continuity that some of the other artists in this incarnation are, which is something I can definitely appreciate. It's a fun book overall that I hope has some more meaningful impact down the line as we work through this final year. Read Full Review

    A major shocking moment occurs that may just rejigger the entire universe. That said, you'll finish this book wanting more. Read Full Review
