It's official, the digital comic that has ruled the charts since its inception, Injustice: Gods Among Us is going on a hiatus for the fall, and coming back in January 2014. The news was announced via a press release after DC Comics had somewhat accidentally announced it via the "Final Issue… for now" that accompanied the print edition's solicitation for December 2013 . The comic has so far focused on the story that takes place between the opening cinematic of the video game of the same name and the storyline played in the game itself.
Today's chapter, Injustice: Gods Among Us #36, ends the story of how Batman and Superman broke off their friendship, becoming the bitter enemies seen in the video game the comic serves as a prequel to. An all-new Annual issue comes November 13, 2013, but otherwise fans will have to wait for January for new weekly digital issues.
"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," Taylor said of the hiatus. He went on to tease, "However, we have another story to tell in the pages of Injustice, and that story will begin in January 2014."
Taylor thanked his team of collaborators and the people at both DC Comcis and NetherRealm for all their help in the series.
The final print issue, collecting Chapters 34-36, hits stores in December 2013, just in time for fans to catch up before new digital chapters begin.
