Dillyn here back again with another Injustice: Ground Zero review. Last issue was a huge improvement and brought the series in the direction I wanted it to go. So let’s take a look at #7 and see if we can stay on that track.

We start the chapter with Harley and her goons in a bar where they’ve been suspended by Batman. Harley hates this and she’s bored. She kind of misses being a bad guy, too. One of her goons brings to Harley’s attention that they have injured mates and need replacements, preferably ones with super powers. That gives Harley the bright idea to contact some old friends, the Suicide Squad. Both Captain Boomerang and Poison Ivy decline to help her out and it really hurts her.

So she finally decides to just go out and do something. She takes her goons out to the police station where she’s looking for some crimes to solve. Officer Renner gives her a case that he’s been trying to get in contact with Batman about but no response. It’s about Killer Croc roaming the sewers and dragging people down there. Harley, of course, is very excited for this venture and takes the case.

When Harley and her goons get to the sewers, she instantly see’s Croc’s goons with croc masks. This ticks her off since they copied her mask motif. In the sewers, there’s a bunch of people locked up including Mr. Freeze and Katana. She takes out Croc’s goons and gets the keys for the cells. But before she can free the prisoners, Killer Croc and Bane enter the room and cliffhanger.

As you can tell from the length of this review, not a whole lot happened or captivated me. It wasn’t a bad chapter but nothing special. It’s more set up for the next story point. The art is really good in this too so it was nice to look at and keep reading. The cliffhanger of Bane involved with Croc has me intrigued of what’s to come.

Bits and Pieces:

This chapter was a bit of a snooze fest. Selba’s story seems to be getting a little side-tracked now and I really don’t know where is is going now. The art from Sampere does continue to be good and very pretty to look at. Still keeps that #SexyHarleyTime trend in full force. I’d like to see more of Harley interacting with the actual Injustice story in this run. I get that it takes place during the first game's story and doesn’t want to retell it, but I’d kind of like a little more of that.
