Well, DC Comics made it official and well it’s a good addition to the DC Comics category, Beyond DC Comics. The Injustice: Gods Among Us game is giving its own comic book. Now, the first issue will be the next wave of DC Comics to come out in January. Hopefully this comic book will do well. It should do well because Tom Taylor is writing it. Who is Tom Taylor? Taylor is the writer for the digital comic book, Legends of The Dark Knight. It has good story telling and Taylor is a whiz at writing Batman. This comic book is entirely separate from the Batman Universe, but if you ever want to just read old school Batman where he only has a grappling gun and his batrangs for weapons. This is the comic book for you.
Tom Taylor released on his blog about his excitement for this comic book:
Anyone who knows me well, knows that I grew up reading DC Superheroes, and writing Superman has always been my ultimate comics-writing goal. With the Injustice prequel series, that’s exactly what I’m doing… along with Batman, and Wonder Woman, and Green Arrow, and Green Lantern, and Flash, and Joker, and Harley Quinn, and Cyborg, and Nightwing, and many, many others in the DC Universe. I couldn’t be happier.
Taylor also explains a bit about the story plot for this comic book, below:
This series, which tells the events leading up to the WB Entertainment and NetherRealm studios game,Injustice: Gods Among Us, is one of the most exciting, terrifying, heartfelt, epic and nasty stories I’ve ever had the pleasure to write. While the exact details of Injustice are still sketchy, I can tell you that the game script that the NetherRealm people have put together is seriously good. It’s great to see a fighting game with such a rich story. You’re all in for a real treat.
So the events leading up to the Injustice: Gods Among Us has given the such richness for Taylor to work with. The game is amazing and well…the story must as amazing! Down below you can see the details of the comic book.
