Catch up on three untold tales from the final year of INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US. Harley Quinn goes to The Joker's oldest hideout only to find a band of ex-Joker lackeys have taken up residence there. Ares returns from his imprisonment on Apokolips to try and win the favor of Superman's regime, but can anyone trust him? Black Lightning-not seen since Year One-switches sides and takes a leadership role in Superman's plans to rebuild Metropolis.

    It's great to have just a little more Buccellato on Injustice before the reigns go back to Tom Taylor. These three stories aren't mind-bending or soul-crushing and their implication for the future of Injustice don't seem to be that critical, but they are lots of fun and excellently well-rendered. One of the three tales feels less conclusive on some levels than the others, but that doesn't totally diminish the reading enjoyment as a whole. I had almost forgotten how much I have missed Injustice and this was just what I needed to reconnect to this amazing alternate world. Read Full Review

    Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Five Annual #1brings to mind a quote often attributed to Abraham Lincoln – “People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.” This comic is enjoyable for what it is and fans of Injustice will find this a fitting capstone for the series.Still, it's a shame that the finale couldn't be quite as revolutionary as what came before.

    It's always nice to have another chance to dive into the Injustice universe, but only one of the three stories in this annual offers much to write home about. The other two fail to take advantage of their dramatic potential and strive for little more than to connect a few dots between the comic and the game. Read Full Review
