‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’

IGN interviewed comic writer Tom Taylor on his new series Injustice: Gods Among Us which launches today. This new series takes some of the most legendary heroes and villains from the DC Comics universe and pits them in an alternate reality. The series is a build up for a new fighting game, however, the story sounds pretty intriguing.

“To tell you the truth, when the script arrived, I rolled my eyes, gritted my teeth and prepared to read through what I assumed would be a standard script to a fighting game; some ham-fisted dialogue, followed by some flaky reason to want to take out the opponents ribs one at a time.

And then I started reading it… and I read the entire thing in one sitting… and then I grinned. This really is the most ambitious script I’ve ever seen from a fighting game, and the NetherRealm guys have pulled it off. So, the challenge is not ‘how do I make this interesting?’ but how do I complement what these guys have done? How do I too find that perfect balance between emotional, epic storytelling and sudden, irreparable spine removal?” -Tom Taylor

The artists working on this new series include Jheremy Raapack, Mike S. Miller, Axel Giminez, and Bruno Redondo. The release schedule for the comic is a little different than usual. DC is releasing 10 pages each week (on Tuesdays) and a print version at the end of the month (Wednesdays) which will collect three chapters. The collector’s edition of the game will include a trade paperback of the first six chapters.

The interview is well worth checking out. You can find the first chapter of Injustice: Gods Among Us here.
