Announcing ‘Injustice – Gods Among Us’ The Comic Series

Injustice has been announced.

I’m writing Superman.

No, really. I’M writing Superman.

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I grew up reading DC Superheroes, and writing Superman has always been my ultimate comics-writing goal. With the Injustice prequel series, that’s exactly what I’m doing… along with Batman, and Wonder Woman, and Green Arrow, and Green Lantern, and Flash, and Joker, and Harley Quinn, and Cyborg, and Nightwing, and many, many others in the DC Universe. I couldn’t be happier.

Which isn’t to say that the characters will be happy…

This series, which tells the events leading up to the WB Entertainment and NetherRealm studios game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, is one of the most exciting, terrifying, heartfelt, epic and nasty stories I’ve ever had the pleasure to write. While the exact details of Injustice are still sketchy, I can tell you that the game script that the NetherRealm people have put together is seriously good. It’s great to see a fighting game with such a rich story. You’re all in for a real treat.

Artist Jheremy Raapack is going to kill on this series and it’s great to be working with Jim Chadwick again too. Jim was my editor back when I was writing The Authority for Wildstorm and he’s one of the best. Thanks to Hank Kanalz and all the people out at Burbank for the opportunity.

We’re going to smash this like Superman smashing Flash into orbit in this trailer…
