DC Comics has announced that the creative team behind 2013's acclaimed "Injustice: Gods Among Us" comic series will reunite for an "Injustice 2" prequel comic that bridges the gap between the two video games. Set to debut April 11, "Injustice 2" will feature the work of writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo, who recently signed an exclusive contract with the publisher.
“Returning to INJUSTICE and working with Tom again feels like a homecoming,” Redondo said in an official statement. “Much of the work I’m most proud of is what Tom and I did during the first comic and it feels great to come back. Tom is one of my favorite writers and one that I enjoy working with the most. We have a similar understanding of the characters, the drama and the humor, which I think helped make the first series so successful. Working in the Injustice universe allows us to do so many things we’re unable to do in any other comic and I can’t wait for fans to see what we have in store for INJUSTICE 2.”
"I am so excited to continue working with Bruno Redondo. He's a good friend and an incredible talent,” said Taylor. “I think Bruno 'gets' me as well as any artist ever has. We compliment each other well, and Bruno lifts INJUSTICE up with every stroke of his pen. As a former theatre director and performer, my main focus is always on how well our characters 'act' on the page. Bruno brings so much emotion to the page, nailing the low points and the high. His characters breathe, and he's just as comfortable delivering big action and shocks as he is with my ridiculous humor."
