Back in June, the sequel to the highly popular fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, was announced to widespread excitement. DC fans will be able to once again revel in being able to use their favorite supervillains and superheroes to duke it out, this time, on the next generation of consoles.
While Injustice 2 is scheduled for release sometime next year, the new Injustice 2 comic book prequel was released today! Injustice: Gods Among Us: Ground Zero stars our favorite psychopath, Harley Quinn and will be a weekly title, coming out on Tuesdays. The title will take place during the events of the first game and bridge the gaps between the two games, but from the eyes of Harley.
The title is being written by Chris Sebela, while the plot is being devised by Brian Buccellato, who worked on the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic.
Of the new title, Sebela said:
“In Ground Zero, we’re trying to bridge the gap between the first Injustice comic and the upcoming Injustice 2 prequel comic by adapting the first videogame. I’m so excited to have Harley Quinn as our eyes and ears and heart of the book. While so much of Injustice is about larger than life figures at odds with each other, Harley’s down on the ground, dodging the fallout of all these wars, getting herself into trouble and trying to figure out how to live life post-Joker. By using Harley as our wildly unreliable narrator, we hope this book appeals to fans who’ve been reading Injustice since Year One and for new readers who’ve never picked up an Injustice book.”
Check out the synopsis for issue 1 below:
