I'm Seeing Red

Injustice has been a book filled with WTF moments and jaw dropping revelations.  Tom Taylor isn't a one-trick pony though, and it's his character development and dialogue that has made this book my favorite.  Season Two has continued the goodness (and the bloodshed) and each of the first two issues have had crazy whack funky moments that reminded me why Tom Taylor should be praised.  This weeks issue slows things down and it's all the better for it.

Superman's actions are getting alot of attention.  On Earth, the U.S. Government has tried to kill him, but elsewhere his actions can no longer be ignored.  When I say elsewhere I mean OA.  Yep, the home of the Green Lantern Corps and more importantly, the Guardians.  Readers of the New 52 Lantern titles had to have as big a smile on their face as I did when the Guardians and especially Ganthet show up.  It isn't just fan service, though, after what happened to Kyle last issue.  They are concerned with Superman and Kyle and call in a GL from sector 2814.  Guess what?  It's not the Lantern on the cover.

Meanwhile on Earth, Hal Jordan (who is on the cover) has decided what side he's on.  Fans of the game know what is on the horizon and fans of the comic can see it's not going to be an easy road. However, it will be fun when that other Lantern comes a calling.  What's up with Superman?  Well, he
spends the issue at Diana's side worrying and stewing.

Tom Taylor shows why he is so good.  This is a setup issue, but what a setup.  Sides are being formed, but they make sense for each character.  While this issue wasn't explosive, it introduced new characters and elements that will be so good down the line.  I can't help it, I love this comic.

Bruno Redondo kicks ass again.  Tom Taylor throws so many characters at him and he comes up smelling like roses.  Nothing looks out of place, every character looks great.  Seriously, this book looks great.

Bits and Pieces: 

Injustice: Year Two #3 is a setup issue and still is better than most books best issues.  Tom Taylor can write so many characters well and Bruno Redondo can draw them with ease.  Everything makes sense and everything looks great.  Read this book.
