"THE BLACK VAULT" part four! It's chaos in Belle Reve when the cosmic contents of the Black Vault are released, causing everyone on the Suicide Squad to turn against each other in a violent rage. Everybody, that is, except for the strangely sane Harley Quinn, who must fight her way through the heavily guarded facility before [REDACTED] can [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] the [REDACTED] forever!

The backup story will be written by Rob Williams with art by Gary Frank. In this story, a mission to dispose of old chemical weapons becomes personal for Harley Quinn when those weapons turn out to be Joker toxin! Now Harley must confront the demons of her past while a Joker-ized Rick Flag tries to take her out once and for all.

    Williams and Lee. Dream Team. Williams and whomever he brings in for each back story, pretty impressive. The causal Ramones mentions with the title of each main story has been pretty awesome too. Read this book. You will be overwhelmed with awesome. Read Full Review

    Its a much more serious and intense portrayal of Harley than usually appears in this book. Or her own book. Her boundaries and her loyalties are not always the clearest, but as this story proves, that is part of what makes her such a compelling character. Read Full Review

    You haven't had this much fun with the Suicide Squad in years. It's action packed with great art and introspective backups. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 14, 2016

    Although this issue takes a slight step down in quality this week, it's still high energy and completely entertaining. If Williams and Lee have been delivering a winning formula for you so far, then this is sure to satisfy you as well. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 12, 2016

    Suicide Squad #4 was another fun issue for not only what happen to conclude this fight with General Zod, but also the exploration of why they continue to allow Harley as a part of the team knowing she can be a wildcard. It seems like we aren't done with this yet, so anticipation remains knowing the madness has only begun. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 12, 2016

    This series' choppy structure continues to frustrate, but at least the quality rises again this this latest chapter. The main story feature memorable team banter and dynamic action, while the backup offers a lavishly illustrated look at Harley Quinn and Rick Flag. But based on the series' pattern so far, should we expect another dip in issue #5? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 12, 2016

    The wacky Russian prison break (the prison is Russian, not the break) comes to a fairly satisfying conclusion, despite the new threat introduced at the end of the last issue turning out to be no threat at all. Members of the Squad have clearly paired up during this battle, and that's sure to lead to some intrigue in the future. Complete with a nicely-rendered back-up, this title continues to satisfy and impress...satisfy my bloodlust and impress young children with violence, that is! Lord bless it. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 12, 2016

    Despite the problems with the storytelling format, Suicide Squad has always looked good. Through all three stages of the visual presentation, the main story disappoints. One of the selling points for this title is Lee's artwork. And when he delivers, it more than holds up to his end of the bargain. But even beyond the various inkers, the artwork largely looks Lee mailed it in. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Nat Brehmer Oct 14, 2016

    The structure of Suicide Squad is an interesting experiment, but I'm not sure that it's working. I'd like a more traditional approach, especially with the ongoing story being so interesting. The expanded backstories are interesting and some of them have been very good, but they're a distraction more than anything else. Read Full Review

    Rob Williams continues to show promise with this series, but the pacing is just KILLING THIS BOOK. Read Full Review
