    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Apr 20, 2016

    The team of Buccellato, Redondo, Albarran, and Lokus knock it out of the park this round bringing the long-simmering Joker Underground story to the fore (and an abrupt and shocking confrontation with Superman himself). This is a heavily Batfamily-related issue (even more so than the last one), that gives Batwoman a chance to shine while setting up the momentum for what should be a cataclysmic finale. We've got a ways to go but after the events of this issue, I have a feeling things are about to go from simmer to white hot heat. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 11, 2016

    The bulk of this issue is action as the slugfest gets underway and just runs with it. This means less dialogue and story overall, though we get some solid dialogue with it. Where this installment shines beyond Shiera and what she says and does is with Iban Coello. His artwork here takes the book up a few notches from the norm as, combined with Nanjan's coloring work, just has a richer and more dynamic feeling about it. Part of it is that the characters feel more "on model" and that Hawkman really has a great sense of strength about him here that's often lacking in the series with other characters. Hopefully Coello is on board for a few more issues of this run at the least, if not a whole lot of them because his work is probably my favorite in the run. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 10, 2016

    This issue of Injustice is pure fun and I had a ball reading it, but it doesn't push the overall story ahead one bit. I loved seeing Hawkman, but loved seeing him get his ass kicked even more. The art and action are worth the price of admission, I just wish there was more story to back them up. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Apr 22, 2016

    With Rebirth coming and the end of this series on its way, the creative team of Miller and Buccellato seem to be really pushing now to move the story along to meet the video games timeline. I am certainly looking forward to them speeding things up. It is time to see Superman become a full fledged tyrant and Batman begin to investigate the inclusion of heroes from the Multiverse. The next few chapters will be very telling as to whether this is the route the story is heading towards. Read Full Review
