Tomorrow, DC releases the final issue of Injustice: Gods Among Us, the top selling digital first tie in to the video game of the same name. Written by Tom Taylor, the series has topped the digital charts for months and has amassed a cult following of fans on the Internet. However, while many fans feared that tomorrow's issue would be the book's last, Taylor revealed that the book would begin a second volume in January. Here's what Taylor said to IGN:
I said early on that we had a definite ending in mind for our story. I knew that the story we were telling in these 36 chapters was essentially the break-up of the World’s Finest friendship. When Superman and Batman’s relationship became irreparable, that’s when our story would end. That tale is told now.
We have another story to tell in the pages of Injustice, and that story will begin in January 2014. Injustice has been an absolute dream project. The chance to tell this epic story with the world’s greatest heroes is something most comics writers, and most comics fans, would give anything for. I want to thank everyone at DC Comics, NetherRealm, the writers of the Injustice: Gods Among Us game, my good friend Kym Bagley for reading my scripts before anyone else and lastly, I want to thank every single one of you for picking up our series. If I could buy each of you a unicorn, I would.
To tide fans over until then, DC will be releasing an Injustice Annual in November.
