The Amazing Amazo

I’ve been begging and begging to get back to the main story of Injustice 2 and much like a spoiled child throwing a tantrum in the store aisle I finally get my wish this week. So let's check in on the cast I've missed the most and see what's cooking.

The issue starts with Harley who drops off one of the kids she saved from the Ra’s fiasco before heading off for her old apartment for some a brief moment of down time.  Its there she runs into, friend turned frenemy, Poison Ivy where they agree to disagree on their current stances, and who they back before laying down together for the night. In the morning Ivy sneaks out to continue her mission with Ra’s but leaves Harley a beautiful reminder that she was there.  Tom Taylor does a great job of really making Harley the Ivy reunion feel awkward and emotional at the same time, nailed it.

The other large chunk of our issue is devoted to the group deep beneath Gorilla City. We see Ras’s and Gorilla Grood at odds over the Amazo that Professor Ivo is building, with Grood uneasy since the robot has no mind to control.  The tension is broken by Solovar, who commands Grood to stand down, and ultimately rush the decision to get this Amazo into its first test run. The issues uses this tease as a means to our cliffhanger that isn't very kind to Arizona Coyote fans and I’ll leave it at that.

Overall, this issue gave me exactly what I’ve been asking for lately. We revisited the characters that interest me the most in this title and there were some interesting developments that I can't wait to see unfold going forward.  I’m back to being all in on this book and recommend everyone else to do the same. Come for the story stay for the art.

Bits and Pieces

Injustice 2 really gets back on track here this issue with a focus on the villains plans and Harley, which Tom Taylor writes fantastically.  If you’ve fallen off with the snippets that have been taking place lately this will get you back on board.
