New Release: ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us #7’

Tom Taylor’s DC Comic series is still going with this week’s Injustice: Gods Among Us #7. With Shazam on the cover, can this issue step things up a notch? Hopefully, the answer is yes.

The tragic death of one of their own has further divided the heroes. Friendships fracture as paths are chosen. The citizens of Earth, too, are divided in their feelings on the heroes’ new, proactive roles, and Billy Batson wants to hear what they have to say. Meanwhile, a signal from Metropolis proves that someone—or something—has survived.

Writer: Tom Taylor
Artists: Jheremy Raapack, Mike S. Miller and Kevin Maguire
