Considering that Injustice 2 is all about iconic comic-book characters fighting, it should be no surprise that it is getting an actual comic book. Especially since the same thing also happened with Injustice: Gods Among Us.
According to comicbook, the comic is coming April 11 as a digital-first series, and is considered a canonical part of the Injustice 2 story. The story will pick up where the last game ended.
Writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo – who worked on original Gods Among Us series – are returning to work on the comics tied to Injustice 2.
I like games and I like graphic novels, but I’ve never personally gotten into the intersection between the two. However, given the success of the comics tied to Gods Among Us, fans are clearly getting something they enjoy from this branch of the story, so I’m glad to see it continue from that perspective.
