Injustice comic out tomorrow

A DC comic prequel to NetherRealm Studio's upcoming fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us is out tomorrow on iOS, Android, Web, iBookstore, Nook Store and the Kindle Store, IGN reports.

The spin-off comic to the fighting game was first announced last year by NetherRealm co-founder Ed Boon, who said that the comic would carry the game's story and tell the events that came before the game.

According to IGN, DC Comics will be releasing 10-page chapters every Tuesday for $0.99 on the aforementioned platforms. These chapters, written by Tom Taylor, will explore how the heroes of the DC universe came to face off with each other in Injustice.

Speaking of Injustice: Gods Among Us, Taylor told IGN: "This really is the most ambitious script I've ever seen from a fighting game, and the NetherRealm guys have pulled it off. So, the challenge is not ‘how do I make this interesting?' but how do I complement what these guys have done? How do I too find that perfect balance between emotional, epic storytelling and sudden, irreparable spine removal?"

The comic series is set five years before the events in the game. Taylor's full interview can be read here.
