    This issue surprised me.  First, I thought it was going to be the debut of the new Squad and it wasn't.  Secondly, how much I loved it anyway.  This was the best issue Sean Ryan has given us and anyone who was on the fence or walked away form this book should check it out.  It may surprise you as well.

    New Suicide Squad #9 is a fairly fast read, though the good thing is that there's nothing from the previous issues you need to be aware of to pick up this issue. Certainly new reader friendly as well which of course should be the main focus knowing that many of these series jump-started through the DCYOU initiative are supposed to help pull in more readers along with hitting targeted audiences. From what is seen in this first issue Suicide is obviously an action series, that can be serious, but also not take itself too seriously because these are villains of course. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 10, 2015

    For the brazen and gutsy storyline alone, I'm recommending this one a buy. While it might not use the real world names, it's clear who Ryan is writing about, and what he's getting at. In doing so, he also might be giving us a potential serious threat in the DC Universe, one I'd like to see expanded beyond this storyline. You don't see creators getting this close to something relevant and in the news, so to see it here is beyond awesome. Read Full Review

    Montsers is by far Sean Ryan's best work to date, and its complimented nicely be equally as strong art from Briones. While I don't want to neglect the improvements Ryan has made, I still can't enthusiastically tell you to add this title to your rotation, but this issue is a step in the right direction.

    New Suicide Squad was in need of a huge jump in quality following a string of lackluster issues, and in many ways issue #9 hits the mark. Read Full Review

    "New Suicide Squad" #9 feels like a book that's found its footing; with the setup for this storyline taken care of, it feels like it can start building up some momentum in the chapters to come. For the moment, though, this feels like a good first step. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jun 10, 2015

    The next arc of New Suicide Squad has started and it continues to be one of the more entertaining books on the shelf. Whether you liked the initial run or not, Sean Ryan is really making this a good series for fans new and old. The art has picked up from the last arc, but there are a few areas where it could use a touch up. Overall this should be the start of another solid arc for an underrated DC title. Read Full Review

    It was a good issue but I cannot call it a great issue, but I also want to see what happens next. Read Full Review
