INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US by Tom Taylor & Jheremy Raapack, Volume 1

WOWIf I was forced to summarize my feels in one word that would be it – wow!

I played the INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US video game on Xbox 360 with my son to completion. From the first play through to every subsequent replay, this game was a hell of a lot of fun. When I heard about this graphic novel tie-in I frowned upon the idea. Senseless merchandising can easily burn my interest in something to the ground… except for Star Wars which has a free pass in all things non-Jar Jar. It wasn’t until I saw the Amazon rating average of (4.6 out of 5 stars after close to 200 customer reviews) that I decided to give it a shot.

I’ve never been happier to be wrong! INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US Volume 1 written by Tom Taylor and impressively illustrated by Jheremy Raapack was a surprise delight. It had a healthy mix of humor, action, and even right down to some of the ‘feels’. The dialogue was well-composed so it felt very natural; comic books often fail to reach such fluid conversation. The story was solid – in the end I found it satisfyingly conclusive while having me salivating for the next volume.

My rating of INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US Volume 1  is a gushing 8.5 out of 10. GO READ THIS BOOK!
