    Overall:With moral ambiguity and numerous selfish and selfless acts, Convergence Suicide Squad delivers a product that you wish you could delve into each month! Read Full Review

    Also, I am not a fan of how the flashbacks/flash-forwards are done here. It seems unnecessary and interrupts an already segmented story. Read Full Review

    Convergence: Suicide Squad #2 is the night to its preceding issue's day, the con to its pro, the Lisa to its Bart. Tom Mandrake struggles to depict the bright and clear super-heroics that Convergence: Suicide Squad #2's script so clearly requires, although he manages to crank out a few memorable images. Frank Tieri's script does the bare minimum when the two teams finally collide, but remains strong for quieter scenes. All in all, a shocking yet riotous finale means that Convergence: Suicide Squad ends on a high note; it's just a pity about the 16 or so pages in the middle. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 18, 2015

    "Convergence: Suicide Squad" is a bit of a rarity for a "Convergence" miniseries, in that it feels like it could use more pages, rather than coming across padded. With that in mind, though, it's a perfectly reasonable conclusion to the miniseries; the end works well, and the art is great. If Tieri and Mandrake got to work on a new "Suicide Squad" comic, I suspect the kinks could be worked out fairly quickly. All in all, a successful showing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 13, 2015

    This issue was one of the few Convergence tie-ins that had a definite ending and while I wasn't a fan of what happened, I give Tieri credit for doing it.  The reader finds out everything they wanted to, but the issue itself felt rushed and forced.  Unfortunately, the art doesn't save it and we are left with an issue that was okay, but disappointing coming off such a good first issue.

    Aside from the few triumphant moments throughout the issue, Convergence: Suicide Squad #2 misses the mark. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Tim Stacey May 14, 2015

    Cumulatively, writer Frank Tieri and artist Tom Mandrake hold around 40 years of experience in making comics for big name publishers, and this series exhibits not a single instance of that implied competency. To call the plot of this issue serpentine would be insulting to a snake's ability to arrive at a destination. To assume even a modicum of care taken in this issue's art would require a saintly level of leniency. This series is simply a resounding waste of time and money on the reader's, creators', and publisher's part. Read Full Review
