The DC Universe one-on-one fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us is all set to receive a comic book based around events of the game, according to comments from NetherRealm Studios’ co-founder Ed Boon at the EB Expo in Australia.
“We’re working on an Injustice comic book to carry the story and tell the events that came before the game. With a game like Mortal Kombat, so many things spawned from there, like the movie. Obviously the extreme version is it would spawn a lot more things, but I know for sure we are making an Injustice comic.”
More things? Could he be hinting at the rumoured Justice League film as DC prepare to try and follow the success of Marvel’s The Avengers? Or is that just wishful thinking? Given DC’s excellent run of animated direct-to-DVD films, perhaps there could even be an Injustice film if fans of Batman and his brood show enough interest in the comic.
While there was no more information on the comic series, I’d expect it to emerge alongside the game in April 2013.
