Injustice: Gods Among Us - Year Three #8 - A Review

John Constantine's plan worked!  With Superman in his clutches and The Ragman on his side, it looks like it is only a matter of time before John will have his revenge against the Man of Steel.  But while John accounted for The Specter's involvement, he didn't plan on the World's Mightiest Mortal entering the battle...

It is a credit to Tom Taylor's skill as a writer that the drama in this series is as well played as it is.  Logically, we know that Superman must survive his encounter with Ragman - we still have two more years of story to get through before the story in the Injustice game begins!  But it is easy to forget that fact as you read this issue and you hope - you honestly hope - that John Constantine might have done the impossible.

Mike S. Miller's heroic artwork is a welcome match to Taylor's script.  Bold and energetic, Miller's splash pages remind one of the classic work of Jack Kirby, with fists aimed out directly at the reader!  Colorist J. Nanjan also deserves praise for the mighty palette used to bring Miller's pencils to life.
