Tom Taylor, with Bruno Redondo on pencils and guest artist Mike S. Miller, continue to bring the Injustice series back to the top quality that Taylor had been synonymous with in the past volumes. As all out war ensues within Gorilla City between Solivar and Grodd’s resistance, Ra’s Al Gul’s plans come to fruition as he unleashes the Amazo android upon the world. While news spreads about Amazo’s rampage, Batman enlists any member and reserve member of the Justice League to help end this massacre. Back at the Fortress of Solitude, Conner Kent, recovering from heart surgery, is met by Ma and Pa Kent as well as Cassie with Clark's old uniform. Donning the classic red and blue tights, Conner and Cassie set out to join the battle.
Even with his absence between multiple volumes, Taylor has become synonymous with the Injustice series since Year One. He uses his scripts to course correct and bring Injustice back to its natural outcome with each new issue. Where previous volumes with his absence felt as though they seemed to have lost focus, the current volume picks up old threads from years passed and brings Injustice back to the forefront of digital sales. For a few volumes the title had felt like it was merely spinning its wheels trying to reach the end of year five. Taylor returns the voice and vision the title had been missing for so long.
Due to being a ‘Digital First’ comic, releasing initially online as half issues before later being combined, the art in the past has suffer at times due to a tighter schedule. In previous volumes, the art was not always accurately representative of the scripts in which they were penciling for, but, with Bruno Redondo on pencils and Rex Locus on colors together, every panel stands out and they give Injustice 2 an unmistakable look for the series. Redondo adds a level of detail to this volume that has been severely lacking in the Injustice storyline. However, Mike S. Miller pencils the scenes in Kahndaq between Wonder Woman, Super Girl and Black Adam,and loses the specific look Redondo had been creating. The three pages Miller pencils cause the book to slightly dip in quality, losing the detail Redondo has been known to bring to the title. Regardless of those three pages, the art in this issue is outstanding and enough to make up for the Kahndaq sequence.
Injustice 2 issue Twenty-Two makes for a quick read, as things begin to amp up in Gorilla City, Kahndaq and Delhi respectively. With each issue, Taylor and Redondo keep readers continually guessing and wanting more.
