Injustice: Gods Among Us came with a comic book series that was well-loved by a lot of DC Universe fans. News has it that the sequel game, Injustice 2, will also be getting a comic, and it will see the return of writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo.
According to Game Fragger, the pair will be teaming up to release the comic this coming April, lining up with the release of Injustice 2 in May. One chapter is said to be released every week, followed by a physical compilation that will be released twice monthly.
The Injustice story takes part in an alternate timeline where Superman was tricked by the Joker into killing Lois Lane and his unborn child. This, of course, lead to Superman killing the Joker and establishing his own tyrannical regime as a way to protect humanity. Batman, who is opposed to this new tyrant , bands all the heroes (and some villains) in an effort to stop Superman.
Bruno Redondo comments on working with Taylor on Injustice again and says that it's some sort of "homecoming." In a press release statement, he says, "Tom is one of my favorite writers and one that I enjoy working with the most. We have a similar understanding of the characters, the drama and the humor, which I think helped make the first series so successful... I can't wait for fans to see what we have in store for Injustice 2."
With the original pair of Taylor and Redondo working on the sequel comic, a lot of hype is building up on the Injustice 2 prequel, and fans are hoping that the two will deliver another compelling story arc for DC's most powerful heroes. Other artists helping out with the series are Juan Albarran, Mike Miller, and Daniel Sampere.
The Injustice 2 comic is set for a release this Aprill 11, and the Injustice 2 game is coming out on May 16.
