My comments about these books are so similar I decided to do a joint review.

Both titles had art that I liked.  Miller and Derenick both contributed quality work to "Injustice".  I give the edge to Derenick as being an artist I have liked in the past.  Brescini also did a nice job with the art on "Wonderland".  Based only on the art, i would give both of the titles a good grade.  Unfortunately, both stories did not appeal to me.

Most of the time, I enjoy alternate world stories but "Injustice Gods Among Us" was not something that connected with me.  I believe I am in the minority because it seems like this is a very popular series with other fans and critics.  The reason I did not like "Wonderland:  Asylum" was the characters.  Something was missing from the characterization in this book.  Let me say that both are well done but just did not connect with me.
