Injustice: Gods Among Us Vol. 2 by Tom Taylor – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]


Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews the second Volume of Injustice: Gods Among Us, a tie-in to the fighting game of the same name – written by Tom Taylor with artwork from Mike S. Miller, Tom Derenick and Jeremy Raapack. Published by DC Comics, this book can be read without knowledge of the events of the video game – however reading Volume 1 first is a definite requirement.

“Tom Taylor steps up and knocks the ball out of the park with the second volume of Injustice: Gods Among Us – improving over the first and making it a compelling, unpredictable read where anything can happen and not even your favourite superheroes are safe.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
