    Fantastic issue! The only question is how Vic Sage ties into the pre-New 52 identity of The Question, also known as Vic Sage. Read Full Review

    There were some minor plot and artistic issues with Suicide Squad #04 , and there were some missed opportunities, but that is mostly nit-picky. This comic lives up to expectations every issue and it is definitely worth a read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Nov 13, 2014

    This issue presents a lot of exciting opportunities, but still doesn't have the same pizzazz as we saw in the first two issues. It's another rough outing for art and there's no sign of Joker's Daughter. However, we do get some greatly missed humor and a showdown between Deathstroke and the squad. Look forward to next issue which may feature the follow-up to Sage's actions and the series debut of Captain Boomerang. Read Full Review

    This series is in the midst of fighting through the growing pains known to all of those who are attempting something new. Although the story is moving forward, Scott Ryan could benefit from focusing more on the external forces that the Suicide Squad faces and less on the internal factors that seem to fractionalize the team.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 13, 2014

    New Suicide Squad is more of the same, a fun, action filled romp that lacks a solid story.  Sean Ryan has done a fine job making this new team enjoyable, but after four issues I want more.  Hopefully, the ending tease and a new setting will do the trick.  I hope so because I really am enjoying this book.

    I'm not providing a "good" and "bad" section, because most of what is available to call attention to without ruining any plot points in this story are listed above. If you're looking for an average adventure with "familiar" characters, then go ahead and pick up the issue. I'm warning you though, the art is going to leave you disappointed and craving something better. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 13, 2014

    "New Suicide Squad" #4 is another example of a series that hasn't maintained consistency. Ryan definitely has some good ideas here, but they're hampered a bit by some very generic sequences on occasion. When his stories feel more suited to the characters in question -- Waller and Sage this issue, Harley and Joker's Daughter last issue -- everything clicks into place. If story and art could both be less variable, "New Suicide Squad" could really go places. Right now, it's a bit too random and scattered to count on just yet. Read Full Review
