    Injustice: Year Four is finally delivering the epic brawl between superheroes and gods we've been waiting for. This issue has a few clunky elements, but it offers a lot of spectacle and a decent amount of character drama to boot. Read Full Review

    Injustice has been doing the forward/backward thing a bunch in this particular year by showing us events and then backing up to show us how it got there. That works well enough in some ways, but if you do it too often it starts to feel forced and gimmicky. That said, I liked the background we get from both Bruce and Luthor over the plans and the entire Pandora's Box that's being opened, but it's also a truth that the stakes are high and it can go on for only so long before things fall apart in a cataclysmic way. You have to believe that Batman has a whole other second level plan in the works here, because that's who he is, so it's a matter of enjoying the ride and the chaos of it all, and then whether the trick of it all is met. It's a fun issue overall that further nudges the fight to come into the center stage. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Aug 5, 2015

    Maybe it's fair to say that Injustice has devolved a little into tag-team Wrestlemania, with Team Bats and Team Supes trading off fisticuffs at every encounter. Maybe we've lost some of the nuance and plotting finesse that made this series so compelling at the outset. And let's face it: there's hardly anyone left to die that would have the impact of killing off someone like Guy Gardner or Dick Grayson. All that said, this is a fun book (more fun, still, than some of DC's flagship titles–for me anyway). So yeah, I'm going to continue to give it the thumbs up. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 16, 2015

    The beginning and end of this book were strong.  We get to see why Lex is going to war and how smart Batman is.  However, the middle part of the book is not only bad, but goes against what we saw last week.  The end result is the same, but it still bothered me.  Mike S. Miller's art was the best he's done on this book, but in the end, I can't recommend this issue.  I haven't lost faith in Buccellato's story, but I'm starting to worry. Read Full Review

    Injustice has an old fashioned fist fight to the death as lovers face each other in the ring. Will Superman pull out all the stops to not hurt Wonder Woman or will they end up fighting till only one is left standing? Read Full Review
