For an issue with very little action, Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #3 is great. Most of that is do to the superb character work by Tom Taylor and the wonderful expressiveness of the artwork. The dialog is page after page of entertainment with lots of excellent character moments. Capping it all of is intriguing story. As Constantine and Batman plot their next moves, the return of a classic villain is revealed.

To kick things off, this issue brings us a hilarious Harley Quinn moment. She plays doctor to the dying Detective Chimp. It’s a nice ice breaker juxtaposed with what follows. Off in Superman’s camp, Sinestro is conducting torture and the Spectre pledges his allegiance. Meanwhile, Batman and Constantine conduct some reconnaissance by reaching out to Madame Xanadu. This leads to some great dialog from Constantine and a huge reveal at the end. There’s some soothsaying about the future and what’s to come.

Following that up is some stellar artwork. Mike S. Miller, Xermanico, Bruno Redondo, Juan Albarran, J. Nanjan and Rex Lokus really hit it out of the park with this one. With so little action and so much dialog, this issue is a very strong character piece. Thus the artwork has to reflect that by focusing on the characters and their interactions. That means a lot of character expressions. From Harley Quinn to Constantine and Xanadu, there’s some great work. The expressiveness of the panels blends with the dialog for a truly immersive experience. It’s top notch work.

Without a flaw in sight, I give Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Three #3 a five out of five metal bikinis.
