    New Suicide Squad #22 was a genuine way to close out this chapter of the team. Again we will be back with more Suicide Squad later on, but that doesn't change the fact that this volume and run made so much progress in capturing a different side to these villains which most stories don't explore outside of. Harley might even have her own solo book, but that doesn't mean we get to see her truly challenged in the role of being a villain. Read Full Review

    The art and writing do well to make Harley Quinn a sympathetic character. This is a fitting end to the series as it feels important. Read Full Review

    Overall, I thought this was a great Harley one shot issue. I enjoyed reading it but have to admit that it did not really tie in to the Suicide Squad apart from the quick panels showing Harley in prison, presumably with the rest of the team. I am still very much looking forward to the next arc for the Suicide Squad so this Harley issue was a good filler until then. Read Full Review

    This pretty much serves as an epilogue to the New Suicide Squad series that wrapped up its final story arc last month. I'm guessing that Sean Ryan knew that if you're going to place the focus on one character during the Summer of Harley, place it on Harley Quinn. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 20, 2016

    Another one-off issue of Harley Quinn Featuring the New Suicide Squad delivers some intriguing backstory for the leading lady of sociopathy, but not much else in the way of the rest of the team. Big fans of the character will want to see this issue, those waiting for the New Suicide Squad to get going can keep waiting. The art is mostly good, but uneven, and looks particularly sparse where it counts. This issue actually plays better as a horror comic than your typical action-packed Suicide Squad fare.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 21, 2016

    In a surprising turn of events, Sean Ryan delivers an issue that focuses specifically on a character, and it isn't terrible. Moments of brilliance appear, but the issue is mostly clichd metaphors and predictable conclusions. Despite those downfalls, this is still a nice one-and-done read that is sure to satisfy any Harley fan. Read Full Review
