    The issue feels really fast. I was surprised that I hit the end when I did. Thats not such a bad thing, really. The issue never had a dull moment. And its very clear that this is spinning into something completely out of the Squads control. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 24, 2017

    Sitting in a Belle Reve prison cell is the biggest gamble the Wall has ever played, and Suicide Squad #18 was the perfect platform to answer why in her case this is never goes well. You could say this development is predictable yet you couldn't ask for a better conflict created from Waller biting off more than she can chew. The only way to have fun with a character who loves control is to challenge what should be impossible, or ill-advised. Read Full Review

    There's not a whole lot to this issue in terms of significant advancement to the story, but Williams never makes the Squad facing impossible odds a dull read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 24, 2017

    When Zod's in the Squad...things are bound to get odd! No? How about: Amanda Waller's got a headache...and it's got Kryptonian written all over it! No good? Well, this comic is pretty good if you like high-flight action and silliness. And implied sexual activity, but I assumed you liked that already. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti May 24, 2017

    In a story tying into the current Action Comics arc featuring the Superman Revenge Squad, Williams crafts a tightly-paced and fun issue, and Daniel's art ever fails to impress. Read Full Review

    With a host of bat baddies, great action, romance and rambunctiousness Suicide Squad #18 ticks all the right boxes. As always the book closeswith a cliff-hanger, and an appearance by two of comics heavy-hitters. Bat-fans have always been treated by this title, but our unexpected visitors should bring in Man Of Steel fans too! Very entertaining stuff. I'm anxious to see what synapse sizzling scenes the next instalment will bring. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald May 25, 2017

    Does this chapter of Suicide Squad deliver in the same way that recent issues did? No. Despite that, this is still a fun, action packed, high energy issue that sits perfectly in the over-arching narrative that Williams is crafting. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole May 24, 2017

    As usual, Suicide Squad is a fun, action-packed read. General Zod is the wildcard needed to spiceup the action and adventure in Suicide Squad, even though the current rostermirrors the recent movie in such a way no one is in danger of dying on any ofthe "suicide missions". Even though thetitle lost some of its originality over the years, it's still a fun, wellwritten book with gorgeous art. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana May 24, 2017

    The appeal of this issue mostly comes from strong the strong character work and muscular choreography of Tony Daniel. He's become the go-to artist for drawing action, and he doesn't disappoint this issue. Daniel takes the violence in Williams' script and gives it a truly cinematic look. Read Full Review

    The plot is pretty straightforward, but Rob Williams and Tony Daniel add just enough flourish to keep things interesting. Read Full Review

    In Conclusion: Suicide Squad continues to have potential (and I feel like I'm saying that every time), but needs a jolt of energy to get things moving. Read Full Review
