Injustice: Year Two #2 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor
Art by: Bruno Redondo
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: January 21, 2014

Chapter Two: Fear

I am so glad Injustice is back.  Last issue ended with a huge reveal involving Black Canary and also the promise of an awesome team already beginning a secret war against Superman.  Unfortunately, this issue involves neither of those threads.  However, what it does contain is simply awesome.

Tom Taylor is so good.  So good, in fact, that he has graduated to the big leagues with Earth 2.  He hasn't forgotten us little people who love Injustice, though.  This second chapter provides everything that makes the book so good.  We get great character moments and surprises with every page.  

Without spoiling too much, we find out where Batman has been healing and why Superman can't find him. There are also the appearance of no less than four favorite DC characters with one not lasting through this issue.  His (or her?) death is so sudden that I couldn't believe it, but that is what's making Year Two so great. Tom Taylor has been given the key to the toy box and the world and characters are his to play with.  I have no idea what's going to happen next and I love it.

Bruno Redondo is a rising star and I expect to see more from him in the near future.  Tom Taylor is throwing characters in the book at break neck speed and Redondo handles them with ease.  Everything doesn't just look good, it looks great.  I wish I was his agent.

Injustice: Year Two #2  continues what makes Injustice such a great series.  Great and varied characters combined with awesome art and a unique story make this my favorite comic book out right now.  Everyone needs to read this book right now.
