    Overall then, theres no denying that Seeley and Ferreyra are a match made in creative heaven, injecting the series with a distinctive sense of humour – albeit humour tinged with sporadic bouts of violence. The pace looks to be picking up significantly from here on in, and the more I read of this series, the more I fun I seem to be having. You can count me in for the foreseeable future, thats for sure.

    Seeing the Fist of Cain was an interesting twist, especially with Mr. Reed seemingly in charge. The next issue seems like it could be full of some great action and lots of death so it should be fun. Read Full Review

    Turns out I was a littletoo harsh on the last issue, since all of my questions and concerns wereanswered with this one. It was a good issue, a bit talky in the beginning butJuan Ferreyra's cleverly plotted pages make it a pleasure to read. The Squad isalive and in mortal danger by the end of the book, which you might haveexpected. What you might not have expected is that I actually apologize for havingbeen rash at the beginning of my review. Don't get too used to it. Read Full Review

    New Suicide Squad #18 compliments the last issue well, and sets up some interesting things to come for the squad members. Tim Seeley is working his magic on this series and Juan Ferreyra manages to keep pace with him. The story is better than I was expecting, even with the larger amount of exposition going on, and the art and colors mesh together to create a unique style that captures the story. In some scenes, the characters dont look as good, but that doesnt detract too much from the book. Overall, I enjoyed this issue and cant wait to see how the Suicide Squad deals with their current predicament. Read Full Review

    If this issue establishes anything, it's how good New Suicide Squad can be, and how good it should've been for years! Seeley creates a world that is engaging and entertaining, and it's something that I don't want to give up any time soon! The Squad put a plan into motion to make it look as though they lost their life so they could gain their freedom, and now they're having to fight for everything they've recently gained" their life!

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Mar 11, 2016

    But overall, this is a really nice example of editorial requirements being met with creative work. Ferreyra and Seeley are giving their all on this book and, even if it still isn't quite my “Suicide Squad,” it is far better than what we've gotten for most of the New 52. Read Full Review

    While there's plenty of rough edges to this book, you can't deny it's made some big improvements. Read Full Review
