    Everything in me wants to love this title, but fluctuating artwork and a story that's more focused on mayhem than character often leaves me feeling like the issue was just okay. Don't get me wrong, I love a good dose of crazy action, but it reaches a point where we need a reminder of why we're interested in these characters. Thankfully, we do get a small sample of that here with Black Manta and it's greatly appreciated (better late than never!). NEW SUICIDE SQUAD is a pretty fun series, but it constantly leaves me feeling like it could accomplish more than just big action. Read Full Review

    While the writing does have its moments at times, it just feels like the creative team wants this story arc to be over with and frankly we're on the same page. This might be the time to give the series a break and let it work out its issues. Read Full Review

    This book is in desperate need of an overhaul.  The story has gone nowhere and because of that, the team just feels stale.  Luckily, it was announced that a new Squad is hitting shelves in June, because IU can't take much more of this.  I can't say I'm excited about the last issue with Manta, Harley and the gang next month, because what we've gotten with them so far has felt like a big missed opportunity.

    This book continues to fall incredibly short of its potential. Even when I'm not a total champion of a title, I can usually find reasons to recommend them and feel good about doing so. I wouldn't, and I don't, stand behind this book in its current state. If you're going to throw down money for monthly issues, then you should get what you pay for. That won't happen here.

    The New Suicide Squad has the potential to be great. As of now, the team currently assigned to the book has lacked the ability to craft a story worth serious consideration. I really hope that this series takes a turn for the better in the very near future. Until that day arrives, I wouldnt recommend this book to even the most passive comic book fan. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 12, 2015

    What little momentum Sean Ryan had built following last issue takes a sudden and literal dive, the writer skirting forward momentum in favor of additional character development. While the book's need of some added depth in undeniable, Ryan's way of introducing it remains haphazard at best. Read Full Review
