Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Two #3

Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Two #3

Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Bruno Redondo
Inker: Julien Hugonnard-Bert
Colorist: Rex Lokus
Letterer: Wes Abbott
Cover Artist: Jheremy Raapack with David Lopez & Santi Casas of Ikari Studio

With a well placed flashback, this comic creates a history between Superman and the Guardians. But it’s not fond memories that the man of steel holds on to. For the last survivor of Krypton, he remembers missed opportunities.

While Tom Taylor writes some smart, cutting dialog, there are some awesome set-ups for the artists. The first panel with no words or sound effects speaks volumes. Ganthet has no reply to Superman’s question, and yet his silence says everything. The art portrays the emotions on Ganthet’s face. His thoughts come across clearly. It’s seamless, perfect storytelling between the artists and the writer.

There’s some cool moments in this issue, and some very touching scenes, but this really is a way point between chapters. Superman and Ganthet have their say. Sides form, and preparations begin. Most of the issue focuses on the Lanterns, aside from the Superman flashback intro. The rest of the issue spotlights Gotham and Commissioner Gordon losing control. Once again playing into the artwork, the final scene showcases some serious girl power with five female superheroes. It’s a nice tease for the next issue, and even though this one doesn’t feel like much of an encapsulated chunk of the story, it’s still very satisfying.

With a good story and excellent artwork, I give Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Two #3 a five out of five metal bikinis. It moves the story along, develops the characters and provides some really nice moments. This series is definitely still going strong.
