    And we find out who was really behind everything. Who masterminded all the events of this series, and who benefits from it. That I will leave unspoiled. Its far too good. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 25, 2017

    A story like Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad was worth the wait. This was the best time for DC to pull this off with strong talent and direction for the DC Universe as a whole. The action was memorable, the characters were fun, the story had meaning, and the end leads to so much potential for all involved. This is how you do a crossover event the right way and make it worth the price. Read Full Review

    This is a satisfying conclusion to the story. Both the plot and the artwork convey the frenetic and frenzied energy of the conclusion and it is definitely worth the read. More of this going forward. Read Full Review

    Overall this final issue packed one heck of a punch providing some extra insight into the characters, tipping us off to more of Amanda's plans, which may or may not include purposely making Frost pure evil and wrapping things up in this arc just well enough to leave the door open for a second glance. The creative team has taken this arc out with a bang and whether they pick it up again or let it die to be continued in bits and pieces of other comics across the Rebirth universe there is some definite magic occurring on these pages and I was blown away by this issue in a good way.

    Dark Knight News - Ryan Lower Jan 27, 2017

    Overall, this issue isn't as good as the previous ones, but it still caps off an awesome run nicely.Justice League vs. Suicide Squad has been what “Rebirth” promised. It's exciting, fun, true to character, and packs a real punch with its price tag. If you haven't jumped on board yet, wait for the trade. Otherwise, buy this issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Jan 25, 2017

    Large events like Justice League vs. Suicide Squad can be difficult to pull off and Joshua Williamson should be commended for his writing in this series as he managed expertly juggle so many moving pieces and present them in one cohesive story. The reintroduction of Max Lord into the DC universe is probably the most important thing to come out of this series and his presentation as equal parts arrogance, confidence, and delusions of grandeur is near perfection. The art by Howard Porter does an excellent job of propelling the action scenes along and compliments to more intimate moments by drawing the audience eyes to exactly where they need to be. Although it is slow in parts and the reveal of Eclipso as the big bad is a little less than overwhelming, on the whole Justice League vs. Suicide Squad is an entertaining story that presents the two teams in a way that has not been seen before and cements that there is room for both in the DC Universe.

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Jan 26, 2017

    JUSTICE LEAGUE VS SUICIDE SQUAD has had a lot of good in it. The rotating-artist approach allowed for a quick one-a-week release without any delays in scheduling, and most of the artists maintained a rather consistent look across the series. I feel a little disappointed in the conclusion, however. It just felt rushed, and made the entire series seem to be put out as a launch point for two other ongoings. And yes, that may have been the actual point, but the reader shouldn't be as aware of it as I feel I am in this instance. Batman's change of mind on the necessity of Task Force X is a departure from his usual intractible views on justice, and I have to wonder if he's only saying that to get his way with Killer Frost's release or if he truly has found a place of compromise in his philosophy. But that's a debate for another time. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 25, 2017

    I expected lots of fighting and not much else, a summer popcorn film, but this final issue shows there's a lot more at play here than a clash of titans and that has me beyond excited for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - A. Chowder Jan 26, 2017

    The final issue of the epic crossover event leaves you wanting more from the villain and the main showdown. While the majority of the characters don't leave much of an impression, the characterization of Amanda Waller is quite satisfying, as it sets up exciting future events. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 25, 2017

    There were some good moments in this crossover, but it was definitely hindered by the Justice League America focus. Hopefully that title delivers otherwise all the effort spent on Justice League vs. Suicide Squad would have been completely squandered. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Sergio Pereira Jan 25, 2017

    Justice League vs. Suicide Squad concludes on a satisfactory note, but could've achieved much more if it hadn't been so focused on being the set-up for Justice League of America. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jon Arvedon Jan 27, 2017

    Overall, Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #6 is a fun, action-packed read, with plenty of implications for the upcoming JLA title. As a whole, though, the event ended with a bit more of a whimper than a bang. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 25, 2017

    Justice League vs. Suicide Squad doesn't receive the epic finale it deserved. This final issue wraps up the conflict with Eclipso far too quickly, and places too much emphasis on setting the stage for Justice League of America. However, the battle looks great while it lasts, and the character dynamics suggest that JLA will be a series well worth following. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 25, 2017

    Man does this conclusion come off forced as hell just to get us to our ending.  For all the build up we had, this big bad turned out to be nothing but a chump and ultimately, this was just simply a hokey way to set up the JLA book with strange characters that don't really feel like they belong there.  The art was okay, but even that felt a bit rushed at times and I left this event feeling a bit disappointed.   Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jan 25, 2017

    At its best,Justice League vs. Suicide Squad has been funny and action-packed. At its worst, it's been face down in a sloppy muck of awful dialogue and unimpressive artwork. This final installment thankfully looks good, and features some nice humor and gravity here and there, but it gets weighed down considerably under Williamson's poorly-constructed speech and nonsensical plot points. If you've been collecting these and want to complete your set, you'll probably buy this whether I tell you to or not. But if you've been on the fence, jump off on the clean side, and wait until you can read this, collected and cheap, in the future. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Jan 25, 2017

    Still, while this issue has it's pluses, so many of the negatives that have defined this series remain. Characters are underdeveloped, the pacing is uneven, the action is a little undefined and everything resolves in a cliche manner that leaves readers unsatisfied. Thankfully, both teams currently have books that are more enthralling than their joint venture proved to be. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Jan 27, 2017

    One of my favorite moments was actually the debriefing after the big climax. I really enjoyed the interactions between the Justice League and the Suicide Squad. Each characters' questions and answers fit their personalities perfectly and captured the fun quality that can be had in these crossovers. Read Full Review
