The Suicide Squads freedom proves to be short-lived when their liberators are revealed to be none other than the Fist of Cain, the insane, ultra-violent death cult for whom murdering famous super-villains would be a thrilling path to glory. Harley Quinn and Deadshot fight for their lives while Amanda Waller and Captain Boomerang decide whether they even want to save these most bitter rivals!

    With great comedic timing and gratuitous, violent action, this issue was great despite a few problems I found within certain characterizations and plot development. Rebirth might throw some changes to the team in a few months but I like where this arc is headed at the moment. Read Full Review

    New Suicide Squad #19 was a heavy reality check as to the wall the Suicide Squad are up against being outnumbered. But all a build up for a real fight to look forward to with New Suicide Squad #20. This issue got dark, made us feel some sympathy, and like the first issue proved how messy they have finally allowed this book to really be. Again the potential is in the embracing of what this book can really be. Read Full Review

    I have to admit that I was not entirely certain that I was doing the right thing by allowing this to take up one of the precious 12 slots in my monthly recurring pull-list. This is not squarely in my typical interest target area. Needless to say, my decision has absolutely been justified if this is the work I have to look forward to (at least for the next two months until Rebirth and a new creative team take over). This is another series I'll have to enter into the same category as the recent 15-issue run on Batgirl"what turns out to be a great comic in the New 52 series that I never got around to. Luckily, at least I am discovering some of these now. When all is said and done, I think we may all look back on the New 52 and decide that this age may not have been as bad as some of us have tried to say it is. If you don't believe that might be the case, all you need do is pick up New Suicide Squad #19, and let Seeley and Ferreyra convince you otherwise. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 7, 2016

    There's only one way out of a spooky castle full of killers tasked with taking the lives of you and your team, and that's through them. If you felt like New Suicide Squad was a little too light on action and murder so far, well this is your issue! Juan Ferreyra's art is great and very expressive, particularly in the faces of some characters. The scene with Waller in the book was a little clunky, but I suppose it had to happen. Little House on the Prairie, this ain't. If you like your action bloody, your blood goopy, and your heroes villainous, then you should give this book a look. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 7, 2016

    I've got to give credit where it's due, and after a pretty shaky introduction, Tim Seeley and Juan Ferreyra are two for two with a consistently decent issue of New Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Apr 8, 2016

    So far this is my least favorite issue of Seeley and Ferreyra's New Suicide Squad. I don't want that to come across as an outright complaint though, because I still think it's head and shoulders above anything Sean Ryan ever presented. This issue just isn't as strong as the two previous issues. The action is great, but the rest is lacking compared to usual. Read Full Review
