DC’s Injustice: Gods Among Us prequel comic arrives in January

With the release this afternoon of DC Comics’ January solicitations arrives the official announcement of Injustice: Gods Among Us, the prequel to the upcoming fighting game from WB Games and NetherRealm Studios.

Studio Co-Founder Ed Boon beat DC to the punch a week ago when he revealed at EB Games Expo in Sydney, Australia, that a comic was in the works. He expressed a desire to see the Injustice version of the DC Universe expand into other media.

Debuting in April for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii U, Injustice: Gods Among Us features such DC characters as Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Harley Quinn, Green Arrow, Cyborg and The Flash fighting on multiple levels in such locations as the Batcave and the Fortress of Solitude.

The 40-page Injustice: Gods Among Us #1 is written by Tom Taylor (DC Universe Online: Legends, Star Wars: Invasion) and illustrated by Jheremy Raapack (Resident Evil, Batman: Arkham Unhinged).

“We’re working on an Injustice comic book to carry the story and tell the events that came before the game,” he said. “With a game like Mortal Kombat, so many things spawned from there, like the movie. Obviously the extreme version is it would spawn a lot more things, but I know for sure we are making an Injustice comic.”
