Panelology is a weekly podcast about comics. We talk about current books, what we're looking forward to, and how to get into reading comics in the first place.

​​​​​​​Injustice: Gods Among Us: Volume Two (DC Comics, 2013; Digital Chapters 19-36, Print #7-12, Annual #1)

  • I have learned one thing from this book:  the two most terrifying words in the English language are, “Desperate Batman.”
  • Suffice it to say, everyone makes bad decisions in this issue.
  • Harley Quinn seems to make the best decisions, in fact, and one of those is to steal Lobo’s bike.
  • I’m also sure that The Penguin must be running superhero dead pool in the Iceberg Lounge now.
  • No matter the continuity, Alfred will always be the best.
  • Taylor continues to write a surprisingly fun, character-driven superhero punch-fest—everything still comes down to relationship.
  • The art team continues to revolve; the book always looks good, but its styles can be wildly different from chapter to chapter.

If you only read one hero-punching-hero comic, let it be Injustice.
