    When I saw a Year Zero comic pop up for the fantastic Injustice: Gods Among Us series, I thought, "Boy, DC is really milking this." However, Tom Taylor does it again. The Joker finds an amulet that allows him to take over someone's mind and he uses it to ill effect, targeting the Justice Society. Taylor does a terrific job of weaving this into the later story, showing why Superman and Wonder Woman don't trust Batman when it comes to taking in Joker.

    Although a little cheesy at times, it's a really fun read with plenty of action and character moments. Whilst I'm firmly in the camp of 'The Joker is overused', it works here, especially when it comes to aiding in Harley Quinn's development.The level of chaos created makes for a high stakes, fast paced, conflict-centric story that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    That was actually incredible, I loved that! And the good thing is, even if you're not into The Injustice Universe, you could still read this and enjoy it for what it is. Sure there are a bunch of wink-wink Easter eggs that hint to what's to come for the heroes and villains, but at its core it's just a nice contemporary JSA/JLA crossover, honouring the past and setting up the future. I really enjoyed the art too; It has a very Jorge Jimenez style and I'm curious to see what else Rogê Antônio has That was actually incredible, I loved that!

    I saw this pop up on Hoopla and thought, “How can even the great Tom Taylor pull off a prequel to the astonishing Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One?” Brilliantly. This is so good it’s almost impossible. Taylor hooks into all the things that happen in IGAU and explains away any small questions anyone might have, but honestly they weren’t even things I’d considered. Such as, “Where is the rest of the Justice Society in all this?” I just assumed most of them had passed away, since they were all bo I saw this pop up on Hoopla and thought, “How can even the great Tom Taylor pull off a prequel to the astonishing Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year One?” Brilliantly. This is so good it’s almost impossible. Taylor hooks into all the things that happen in IGAU and explains away any small questions anyone might have, but honestly they weren’t even things I’d considered. Such as, “Where is the rest of the Justice Society in all this?” I just assumed most of them had passed away, since they were all born between 1870 and 1920. Turns out most of them are still around due to time travel and other shenanigans. Which sets up the central conflict of this book: a mind-controlling amulet is used by the Joker to kill people. Which also handily explains why Wonder Woman and Superman fall out so hard with Batman in IGAU: Year One — we see exactly how bad Joker can be, and why he should be executed. Not only does Taylor deftly link to the existing series, he also tells a cracking good self-contained story. It also has plenty of humor in it, and some of the humorous scenes do double duty: they’re funny in and of themselves, but there’s also darkness behind them because you know what is going to happen to all these people. The art by Rôge Antônio and Cian Tormey with colorist Rain Beredo is also flat-out terrific. Pure, clear storytelling with plenty of style when the story ramps up. This should be the template for every artist to follow.

    This is pretty much a prequel to Injustice and it starts off with the amulet of Apophis being tracked down by the hawks and then its re-emergence and the JSA fighting it and burying it in the ocean and then its eventual coming up again thanks to an old man named Andre who tells this to the Joker and the Joker wants this power and he enlists the help of Black Manta for this and then its him slowly going on the warpath to hunt down the heroes of JL aka JSA and one by one we see them all fall and t This is pretty much a prequel to Injustice and it starts off with the amulet of Apophis being tracked down by the hawks and then its re-emergence and the JSA fighting it and burying it in the ocean and then its eventual coming up again thanks to an old man named Andre who tells this to the Joker and the Joker wants this power and he enlists the help of Black Manta for this and then its him slowly going on the warpath to hunt down the heroes of JL aka JSA and one by one we see them all fall and then the final confrontation when he becomes transformed to the agent of chaos and its him vs JL/JSA but he also made some JSA members disappear and its a fight and one of the best Superman moments ever but he has some even more sinister plans which lead right into Year one perfectly! This was a great story and just shows the dangerous-ness of the Joker and the JSA being slaughtered was wow.. something and like good moments but also great moments for some characters in particular Alan, Harley and Ivy and Clark and Lois! The art was decent but overall a cute=bloody little story before the main Injustice series!

    I wasn’t aware this book existed but finding out was a welcome surprise. I really love the original Injustice run, it is one of my all time favorite series. I was kinda concerned that they were doing too much with the Injustice license and it would be watered down. But seeing Tom Taylor come back to write gave me hope, and that hope I had was affirmed once I started reading.

This book was really well written and feels like a really well done prequel to the original series. I feel the dialogue and plot lines in this, really align with the original and don’t feel conceived to make a new story, they really feel genuine and true to the original series. I personally really enjoyed the addition of the JSA as I am a big fan of the team and it was good seeing them get a spotlight in this book, along with the team dynamic they had between the new heroes. The art was done by a different team in this, than the original series but it still felt close enough to remind me of the original series. This book was very well done and a great addition to the injustice universe and I would highly recommend it. 8.8/10

    Another Tom Taylor winner! This is how you balance a huge cast whilst keeping this fast-paced and fun. It’s funny, it’s dark, it’s heartfelt, it’s gory. It’s Injustice! Get on it. PS, the art is also great. I really love the style.

    I choose to read the prequel first and follow the chronological order, and I didn't regret. The story is short but amazing, got me hooked from the beginning. It had a chapter in the middle that didn't push the story forward and felt like a waste of time, but all in all, very good comics.

    Firstly, if you are reading this without any idea of the other Injustice books, then go ahead and continue reading it till you finish whole of Injustice Series, including the ones which follows this. However, if you are reading this in order, then assuming you have literally read all of this epic comic series, the let me tell you, "Please do not expect the same hype/excitement/epicness/emotions/state-of-art from this one, like you did from the other books of this epic series.

Now, considering this as a sequel to everything, it sets up a good storyline of how Joker manages to understand the loophole of turning Superman into devil from a god. Also, this shows the typical anti-hero character of Harley Quinn and if you have read other Injustice books, then you might know how she becomes a good ally of Batman. Some cool thing from the writer which you'll get - Action packed stuffs of JSA/JL fighting together; Joker's dialogues and his character development as the god of chaos; Superman's struggle to be human. Some unnecessary things from the writer which you'll get - Inclusion of World War 2 and the killing of Hitler (not needed at all) storyline. I mean, this could have been set up in a much different way. Some things missed by the writer that could make this more intriguing/epic, like the other sequels - Relation of Batman with his son; More of Superman and Batman regular conflicting ideologies, in their conversations which eventually gets sorted. Now, overall art was pretty good and I liked it and thats it! Happy reading :) -Rishabh. (instagram @rishabhxart)

    Some might argue that when the book is set in an alternate reality, and the stakes are so very low, the book's impacts are lessened. Taylor proves absolutely otherwise. This prequel volume, covering 14 issues before Injustice began is nothing short of awe-some. Perhaps what elevates this beyond Marvel's Ultimate universe and countless other alternate reality tales is how close this book feels to the standard timeline. It's just a tick or two off from the regular beat, and so you so quickly forgot th Some might argue that when the book is set in an alternate reality, and the stakes are so very low, the book's impacts are lessened.

It's just a tick or two off from the regular beat, and so you so quickly forgot that this isn't the main storyline. And with that, Taylor revels in the opportunities to write something truly incredible. His work with The Joker here is, possibly, some of the best I have ever read of the character. Period. And his characterizations of Batman and Superman are so finely etched and well mapped out that I was racing to read the next issue. Sterling stuff that you should read too.

Español: Che,pensé que DC estaba harto de ordeñar las tetas de Injustice ydespués vi esta precuela y dije no mierda basta. Pero,oh sorpresa,esto está re cheto. Joker consiguió un amuleto que le permite controlar a las personas y termina apuntando a la JSA. Esta es una configuración perfecta para el resto de la serie. Hay muchas pistas sobre el futuro. WW y Superman no confiando en Batman con Joker es la mejor para mí. Y este Joker es bastante diferente a lo que estoy acostumbrado. Él no está tan loco y es más como un hdp manipulador. Buena toma del personaje,especialmente con lo que viene para Harley. Me sentí muy mal por la JSA.

Not a necessity to read in order to understand and follow the Injustice storyline written before, but certainly a brilliant addition to enhance the already existing series and have a better understanding of its foundation. Gritty artwork, witty humor, heartbreak and violence that only DC knows how to do. Definitely recommend to add to the collection of any true fan of Injustice.

    Solid prequel. Year Zero artfully sets up the beginning of the Injustice storyline. The reason for Joker's actions in Year One become clear, both why he did it and how he got the information to pull it off. There's a nice bit with Harley and Ivy, too. Interactions between the Justice League and the generation of heroes who inspired them are interesting to see. There's some foreshadowing, I think, for Wonder Woman, too. It shows where her mind was before the events in Year One. The overall story Solid prequel. Year Zero artfully sets up the beginning of the Injustice storyline.

    This was such a brilliant prequel to the highly acclaimed Elseworlds series. The world of Injustice is so visceral and equally horrifying to the worlds of DCeased and Kingdom Come. The inclusion of the JSA and their influence on the modern-day Justice League heroes, as well as the new heights of the Joker’s villainy, make this such a brilliant read. The artwork really reflects the chaos and darkness that the villain brings upon the heroes, and how his influence darkens the world and its heroes a This was such a brilliant prequel to the highly acclaimed Elseworlds series.

    Year Zero started off pretty bad, with a strange timeline forcing the inclusion of Justice Society of America, then it ventured into a homoeroticism (Harley + Ivy shipping and making Alan Scott gay), but it turned out OK when Joker started having fun murdering individual society members. It was messy but it worked, the dialogues were pretty dreadful (Ivy called joker an "edgelord") but aside from the agenda, it actually was an enjoyable quick read.

They did a wonderful job of telling an original story, that tied in extremely well with the established Injustice canon. Nods to submarines and how the downfall of Superman could be orchestrated really tug at the heartstrings. The inclusion and the excision of the Justice Society was executed well. The pursuit of a child for Lois and Clark was especially heartfelt to read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Possibly one of the best executions of a prequel ever.

    Usually game tie-in comics are a bit dull, but this was a fun setup to Year One and has some great characters appear in it to ultimately set up a larger plot to be explored. The artwork was great in this too. I am looking forward to Year One, which is being adapted later this year. I had a lot of fun with this.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Another good entry in this series though it is somewhat "forced." By forced I mean that this prequel doesn't seem to quite fit the narrative from the first volume [when the Joker tricks Superman into attacking his loved ones]. This makes it way more premeditated on the Joker's part than that original volume. Still, an enjoyable read. Another good entry in this series though it is somewhat "forced."
