    So does this issue of Injustice confirm that things will indeed get crazy from here? Yes it does and I would love to see just how the Green Lanterns would fair against a highly motivated Superman who would not tolerate their interference. Surely after that little revelation from Ganthet their welcome on Earth is all but gone. Tom Taylor is building up to something big, and while some could complain about how much happens within each issue, I say that enough happens to make you want to pick up the next issue.

    Unfortunately, the book loses a bit of its charm without Redondo providing the art. Xermanico's work is perfectly fine, but not quite as sleek or cinematic. As much as I enjoy reading this comic, I would be perfectly willing to keep Injustice on a biweekly release schedule if it meant a more consistent visual presentation. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 22, 2014

    Injustice: Year Two #8 continues the buildup by visiting Oa and the Green Lantern Corps.  The Guardians step up to the plate with a plan to end Superman's reign, but Hal Jordan is not on board.  Bruno Redondo's art is as good as usual, but he doesn't get to show off his full talents.  Still, Tom Taylor gives us another solid chapter that is well worth the price of admission.

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jul 23, 2014

    Anytime you jump a significant time period between comics you're going to lose momentum and create a weird time pocket in which to wonder what the heck has everyone's been doing all these months. It's good to see Batman getting on his feet (if only just barely), but it's time for the showdown and it's been time for a while now. The tag for the next issue reads: "Absolute. Freaking. Carnage." Bring it on, Injustice crew! We're more than primed. Read Full Review

    The Daily Crate - Jennifer Bosier Apr 24, 2014

    The most frustrating thing is that, to its credit, the issue is the first of several to progress the story. But that's also the problem. The pacing in the series has been off since Injustice: Year Two #1, and this doesn't do much to fix it. The next several issues need to progress the upcoming war and keep up a steady pace to redeem this series. Read Full Review
