    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Mar 16, 2016

    Solomon Grundy's cameo is made wonderfully purposeful by not only being an impetus for Superman and Bizarro to clash, but connecting back to the story of Lex Luthor and Superman's suspicion that Luthor's not been entirely honest with him. And he just makes for a great brawling bit of fun as Superman tries to subdue two extraordinarily strong opponents with whom he can't rationalize. Injustice continues to do a great job of being a video tie-in without having a plotline so superficial it wears out its welcome before you get to the end of the game. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 17, 2016

    Writer Brian Buccellato is able to tap into that blend of humor and hard-hitting action that has so frequently made this comic entertaining. He wisely avoids resorting to traditional, convoluted Bizarro speak, instead simply writing the character as a confused, childish, but ultimately well-meaning brute. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 28, 2016

    Injustice looks to potentially be moving to its next big moment, though I know it could be undercut pretty quickly depending on if there's a trick up the team's sleeve for it. What we do get here is a pretty solid focus on one event with a few threads playing off of it and that keeps it moving and fun throughout. Though Batman's team has been whittled down significantly, to the point where it's almost not really a team anymore, they're still pretty damn capable and fun to watch as they execute things. Similar to the previous issue, Redondo and Albarran continue to bring out some solid work that fits the theme and style of the book just right, making for some wonderfully dynamic action moments and some creative pieces that work well, notably when Bane lands his first hit on Batman about midway through. Good stuff that against gives me a weekly taste of some of my favorite characters in a very different light. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 27, 2016

    This issue gets Year Five back on the right track and while it was mostly setup, it got Harley Quinn back in the story and that's worth a million setups if you ask me.  The issue ends with two crazy cliffhangers and even if we kind of know who won't die, I'm still looking forward to next issue.

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Mar 18, 2016

    Overall, the story still has me interested but Im hoping for Bizarro to now get folded into the bigger story with the Insurgency. It would be cool to see Batman attempt to join forces with Supermans clone. Of course, this would drive a wedge between him and his team but that would fit with the multiple times he has done something against the teams wishes. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Garrett Walz Mar 21, 2016

    The art by Coello and Miller is actually really good for how much I disliked the issue. The art fits the story well, especially for this heavy action beat book. All the characters look great and don't share the same faces, which shows these artists are doing great work with their character designs. The art of this book saved this issue from a 3 of 10 rating. Definitely hoping next issue the story and art are both fantastic, like I know it can be! Read Full Review
