The End is Nigh in ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ #12

Justice is blind, but injustice never had a problem with sneaking a peek. Balance the scales and sneak your own peek at Injustice: Gods Among Us #12, the maxi-series based on the brutal fighting game/fangasm. Now we have made no small noise about our love of that game, or how this title is so, so much better than a pocket universe adaptation of a video game has any right to be, with all credit due to writer Tom Taylor and his rotating cast of top-tier artists. DC didn’t cut corners on this book just because it was out of continuity, and the result is a fun but gripping showcase series that you don’t have to be a loyal fanboy to follow.

Now Taylor’s shutting down (for now) the book that he made great with the art team of Mike S. Miller and Tom Derenick bringing us a final blowout. We’d bet you a sawbuck it gives the Man of Steel sequel serious competition for the best time these two tussled. (Though it’d be far from the first time, as we chronicled in Super-Bromance: the Long History of DC’s Superpower Couple.)

“Pa! Language!”

And wouldn’t you give your left thumb for a 12-issue series that was just Solomon Grundy and Black Adam pounding the crap out of each other?
