This is a quick, to the point section on what I picked up in comics in the last couple days and what I think of them. I might of picked some of them up last week.
Injustice Gods Among Us #1-10
I realize it’s been a while since I’ve written one of these. I’m not going to catch up with what I’ve missed but should have my thoughts on this weeks releases sometime this weekend. From there hopefully I will be back to regularly delivering these posts on Thursdays or Fridays.
First off, I purchased all issues of Injustice Gods Among Us from Comixology for $0.99 a piece. This is not normal continuum DC. I’m going to tell you right now this series is fantastic and I don’t subscribe to any monthly DC comics. But unfortunately to sell this to you I’m going to have to spoil the first issue. My hope is that you’ll just trust me and try out the first issue without reading this. This comic series has made me massively interested in a videogame that I had no previous interest in purchasing. Also this series is still ongoing. I’m assuming it’ll go to issue #12 and allegedly will function as a prequel to the game.
First issue spoilers start now. Injustice Gods Among Us asks what would it take and what would it look like if the Justice League decided to inflict world peace on the world. The story starts with Superman waking up to hear two heart beats coming out of Lois. She’s pregnant. Both of them get very excited. Superman asks Batman to be the godfather. Meanwhile, Batman investigates a recent kryptonite theft from Star Labs. All in all, Joker was bored and tired of losing so he decided to mess with Superman. He combines Scarecrow’s gas with kryptonite, kidnaps Lois, and with the kryponite scare gas tricks Superman into killing Lois. The issue ends with Superman sticking his hand through Joker’s chest and declaring an end to war.
