DC is continuing to bolster its popular digital line. The comics publisher announced via IGN that they would be releasing another "year" of its popular Injustice comic, based on the 2013 fighting game. The series, which serves as a prequel to the game, helped launch writer Tom Taylor's mainstream career and is still one of DC's top-selling digital comics a full year after the game it tied into was released.
Injustice: Year 3 will focus on Constantine joining the ongoing fray between Batman and Superman, presumably with the help of several other magic users. The series will also move back to a weekly schedule, something that fans have allegedly been clamoring for. Due to the switch to weekly, Injustice will return to a rotating cast of artists including Mike S. Miller and current Injustice artist Bruno Redondo. Injustice: Year 3 will be released in July, right after Year 2 wraps up.
DC also announced a second Injustice annual, with stories co-written by Taylor and Marguerite Bennett, which will be released in October.
For all the crap and scuttlebutt that occasionally surrounds DC, the one thing they seem to be doing right is their digital line. The publisher has a number of digital first titles that have a steady readership and fanbase, including Injustice and Batman '66. So, congrats DC fans, it looks like you'll be getting another year (or two) of Injustice.
