    If you can only read one DC book, read this one. Of course, you will also need to read Justice League and the cross over books for the next few months, so, read those too. I know I will. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 30, 2016

    While this arc has been fairly uneven in quality overall, this issue showcases the new Suicide Squad at its best. It features plenty of detailed action and carnage, but also an intriguingly different take on Harley Quinn. And with the Enchantress backup story ranking among the best of the series so far, there's no element of this issue that doesn't work. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 30, 2016

    Suicide Squad #7 is where things begin to make sense which didn't take too long and came with a creative approach down to the big twist had the end that might have your head spinning. This book continues to keep us at the edge of our seats and that is what we need for this story that doesn't let up in delivering action you won't get from the other books. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Dec 1, 2016

    While fun, the main narrative didn't necessarily hit all of the right notes in this issue. It was a great chapter to temporarily pull us from the action and direness of what's taking place, but I'll be ready for things to "return to normal" next week. Granted, when dealing with Suicide Squad, I'm not completely sure what normal is" and I wouldn't have it any other way. The real win for this issue though, is June Moon's spotlight, "Trapped." This narrative reveals enough about her character that it will leave you expecting more from her in future chapters. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Dec 2, 2016

    Like all the other issues, the page count doesn't do this comic any favors. This one seemed to be faster paced, and more enjoyable than the last few issues, but it still has the same problems. There are multiple inkers again this issue, and I only noticed a change for a few pages. Jeremiah Skipper colors this issue instead of Sinclair, and I didn't even notice there was a change. The guy did a great job filling in. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jon Arvedon Dec 5, 2016

    Despite the moments of character development for Harley Quinn, they're sure to be short-lived as things return to the status quo for Task Force X. Still, Suicide Squad #7 is ultimately a fun ride. It doesn't require you to check any baggage at the door because Williams delivers exactly what you would expect from the ragtag band of rogues - hard-hitting action, humor, and the most bizarre team dynamic in the DC Universe.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 30, 2016

    Continuing the fracas from last issue...well, the fracas continues. There's a big revelation about what's driving everyone bonkers at the end of the story, but the rest of it is Dr. Harleen Quinzell making her violent rounds. The backup is about the Enchantress, and is entertaining enough, but the artwork is really something special and may be worth the cover price all by itself. If you're prone to paying three bucks to look at great pictures, that is. Read Full Review

    If you strip away the Jim Lee artwork (which I'm partial too although I admit it's not his best work), the story is actually pretty nonsensical. Between Russians, Zod, and Boomerang, half the time you don't know what's going on. The designs are also trying too hard to merge with the movie universe and I don't know how I feel about that...

    Everyone crazy and the possible return of a beloved character made this issue one of the better suicide squad issues. Sane Harley, with a crazy Katana cutting everyone's body parts off is an odd premise for a story, but fun nonetheless.
