Injustice #1 Chapter 1 Digital Comic Goes Top

It's the comic book tie-in defying convention!
Some people think fighting games aren't well known for their storylines. Likewise, comics readers have long been conditioned to regard tie-in comics with suspicion and doubt. Injustice: Gods Among Us rewrites both rules, flying to the top of digital charts within the first day of its online release!

At a paltry 99c; Chapter 1 of the Injustice digital comic details the first third of what will be the final printed issue, come January 30 [full story].

So popular has the release been, it's already #1 on the Amazon Kindle and DC Comics App! It bests enduring collected releases like Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns, as well as the hugely successful New 52 reboot of Justice League [via @TomTaylorMade]!

The writer makes no bones about celebrating his opportunity to work on the iconic heroes and villains of the DC Universe -- even if Injustice forces a new perspective on some of the classics. In his own words, "... that dream has become a reality… and that reality has become a nightmare."


Batman Looms Over Chapter 1 of the Injustice Backstory [via IGN]

Taylor spoke recently to IGN about the trials and triumphs of the book, which takes place approximately five years before the events of the game -- leading to conflict between Superman and Batman. Allusions to Superman's tyrannical New Regime date back to the first teaser released, back in July, 2012.

Referencing his history as a playwright and screenwriter, Taylor also expects to bring his skills of short story telling to the individual chapters and issues. He does so noting that the platform fo the games' story mode helped offer a strong base to work from, defying his own expectations of fighting game plot.

... 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?

The first ten page chapter is currently available via the DC Comics App, Comixology and the Amazon Kindle Store. Fans of paper should remember to pre-order the complete issue with their local comic store before January 30!

Get a sneak peek of cover art and plot details for issues #2, #3 & #4. Injustice: Gods Among Us hits home consoles April 16! Discuss and speculate about the games and comics on the DC Universe Injustice forum.

The first chapter was great. Can't wait to read the rest, as well as play the game itself. Glad he thought the story of the game was that decent.

I was hesitant about the quality, not knowing any previous works from the writer. After I read an interview with Tom Taylor I got the impression that it would be more like a fan-fiction.
Once I read it, I was blown away. The writer has a very firm grasp for the characters, what they say and do, ect. And the fact this kind of quality was inspired from the story mode of Injustice, makes me incredibly optimistic.
