    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Feb 3, 2016

    There's betrayal on the horizon as Bane's hostage situation starts to boil over. Will Catwoman be the catalyst that destroys Batman's Resistance? And what's going on between Superman and Wonder Woman? Their cross-purposes may be coming to a head. This is an exciting time in Injustice and the team of Buccellato, Redondo, Albarran, and Lokus bring to it a wonderfully fast-paced, action-packed adventure that's returned to the dark roots we saw in Injustice's early "Years".

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 5, 2016

    This issue of Injustice was heavy on setup, but what it setup was pretty heavy.  See what I did there?  Superman is making deals that are bound to bite him in the ass, but desperate times...While Buccellato's story is satisfying, Tom Derenick's art is just okay.  It all ends up being a good issue of Injustice that continues making me excited for this series going forward.

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Feb 12, 2016

    Like I said before, this issue was mostly just filler for the upcoming face off between Clark and Bruce. The plot point of Bane abducting and torturing Catwoman to get Bruce to show himself was a good way to make that happen. Although they are keeping us focused on the two big guys facing off, its exciting to see Bizarro's story getting sprinkled in and I have a feeling that his arrival will definitely elevate the story.

    The latest incarnation of Injustice is feeling more in line with the first two volumes of the series, and that's a good thing. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Garrett Walz Feb 15, 2016

    The art by Redondo has a very distinct look with dark shadows and makes the characters look epic in scope. It is always awesome to see battles with characters that wouldn't normally fight each other but the grand scale of this art pulls it off! The colors by Rex Lokus show good contrast from characters that live in the shadows vs the characters that live in the light. Great color palette and some of the best action in a comic book portrayed by Redondo and Lokus. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 5, 2016

    The stage is pretty well set here with what this year is going to be like as Superman firms up his control and makes it clear what he intends to do. Giving some finality to various characters is going to work well to reinforce that as well as the way those on his side are becoming more subservient to him. I like the play that Bane is making " though I can see him working both sides for his own advantage " and I'm definitely interested in seeing where Diana really ends up falling within all of it by the end. The series has a good flow about it and this installment hits a few good points while also drawing to a close a pair of fights so it can move forward with the next arc. Good stuff overall and definitely a fun piece of the bigger picture. Read Full Review
