Delirious Disquisitions
You should read this if you like: any of the DC movies, superheroes punching each other in the face, Batman VS Superman as a concept, Superman going dark, Bat family, Joker, Lex Luthor, other DC villains, Gotham City Sirens, alternate timelines.

This might just be one of the worst DC comics I have ever read. There's no complexity to the plot or the myriad characters that are paraded out at one point or another. The characters remain pretty black and white throughout the story. Any hint of moral

Actual review: 2.5

Thus... with a whimper... it dies...

The problem with this series was that it started strong and it expanded into epic proportions encompassing a world war only to become a galaxy-wide genocide. As great as the writing was for the first few issues, the writers clearly had nowhere to go afterwards.

They tried to keep the tension going while giving sneakier ways of subterfuge, but it honestly fell flat for me. The characters are unrecognizable and the entire issue seems like a moo

This series started out strong and became progressively stronger with Tom Taylor at the helm. Year 2 was staggeringly good, I actually had to take a break from the series just so I could process everything that happened. I couldn't imagine how this series could get any better. And to be honest, I still can't. When Brian Buccellato took over, and the focus shifted to magic and Greek Gods, the quality dropped a bit. I hate feeling obligated to finish a series, so I went into Year 5 remembering all ...more

This was an amazing series. I've played Injustice 2, but not the first one. I just bought it, I'm excited to see how this universe continues. I love this iteration of DC. My Harley Quinn tattoo just got a whole new layer. They need to make an animated show. ...more

★★★1/2

In this final installment, the situation gets even more dire as both sides: Batman's Insurgency and Superman's Regime, go to extreme lengths to defeat the other once and for all, even allying themselves with villains. But when it seems like all might be lost, a nearly broken Batman has one last card to play, one final gambit that will lead right up to the the events in the Injustice: Gods Among Us video game that follows right on the heels of this book's ending. So take note, for the real

I knew this would happen.

All I wanted was a self-contained story and I thought, "Injustice Years One-Five looks cool and it's over. I'll check it out!"

Then I get to issue #40 of Year Five and there is no way that the story can end, because there simply aren't enough pages. And guess what? It doesn't.

Screw you, DC. Screw you so hard.

Guess I'm reading Ground Zero and Injustice 2 now.

I swear on all that is holy in this world if Injustice 2 is not the end of this, I'm gonna burn something to the

This was one of my favourite comic book series and I've been waiting for Year 5 collectuon for a while. I was therefore looking forward to this. Sadly thought they dropped the ball in the very last chapter. An ending so sparse, complicated and ill explained as to leave me feeling cheated. Frankly a worse ending than GoT. ...more

Meh..

Been reading since the beginning and then reread everything from 2011 or so, to end up to this?

No pay off. No outcome. No nothing.

This basically is saying go buy Injustice Ground Zero and Injustice 2 to see what happens. Nope. Fuck that.

And even though I bought the first vol. of Injustice 2, pretty much expecting a decent end in the end of Year Five after all this time reading this series is the least the writers could do.

Disappointing and mediocre at best.

The ending felt a bit contrived, but oh well, least the series comes to an end we can all take as the best resolution of this neverending conflict.

I began reading comics last year due to how much I was enjoying the movies being made based on comic books. The marvel movies were the ones I was enjoying and decided to begin with Marvel comics. Then I saw @booksandbeers give this series five stars and was intrigued by his high rating and all the reviews I saw online, which led me to read this series. This is my first time reading DC comics and it was an amazing experience that rivaled the Marvel comics that I have read so far.

Now the content

Holy unsatisfactory endings, Batman. I expected a letdown, but this non-ending was brutal.

Some takeaways of the entire series:
I liked the development of Harley Quinn. Very well done, that.
I didn't like how Sinestro's storyline was largely forgotten and how Hal just became a Yellow Lantern and no one had a problem with that.
I really liked the whole magic characters playing a huge role. That volume was my fave.
The Green Pills thing didn't work for me.
I liked how Bats had just about all women

The story is finally moving forward and it’s the best one sine the green lantern corps war, but the injustice characters suddenly decide to adopt the new outfits just in time for the Justice League to arrive, we finally find out how the story develops and how we get to the videogame point, I do feel dissatisfied that we only get that part of the story directly from that single source but I’d love to see the injustice videogame in this format. Overall it feel great to finish this arc and I’m even ...more

3.5*

Just like the video game, this last volume is fight after fight without any arc that holds everything together. It's enjoyable, though, and there were quite a few moments where I was emotionally touched. Nothing in comparison to Tom Taylor's start of the series but seen as its own thing good enough.

I do not play video games, yet the book ends on a cliffhanger and basically tells you to fuck off and go buy the games. Are you kidding me? Why did we all invest our time, energy, and MONEY into this book series if that was going to be the end? What was the point of writing it, if they weren’t going to give us a proper ending?

I’m so disappointed right now. And I need a hug.

This was a major cliffhanger ending. I liked the story but it started getting a little out of hand. I know there is a Harley Quinn series that takes place concurrently to the game but I feel like the story stalled and then cliffhangered at the end.

This one started getting a little iffy for me. I mean hey, still 4/5 stars, but there were chapters here that were definitely more on the miss side.

I still can't believe that some of DC's best comics here were made as part of a goddamn video game tie-in.

Language = some elements underexplained
Layout = some scenes confusing
Length = longer than previous in the series
Lifestyle = finishing this was a struggle
Learning = the resolution was inconclusive & thus disappointing

It left me wanting more, such a cliffhanger of an ending that felt rushed. Is Superman really that misguided? Could he ignore the doubts of his regime? Argh!!!

3.5 stars for this. The first half was virtually plotless, but after issue #22 things start to feel exciting again, a la Year One and Two. Really enjoyable second half.
