The Monsters storyline concludes in epic fashion when the League splinter group prepares to unleash a secret weapon deadlier than anyone could have imagined. Can the Suicide Squad stop it? Do they even want to?

    New Suicide Squad Annual #1 as an annual is just another issue, but it is a well executed final issue to this story arc. We lose a member which was shocking this early, but nonetheless meaningful to show that characters can change and will. Character development is just as important as the action. Read Full Review

    If you have been reading New Suicide Squad then go out and get this Annual immediately.  It's that good and brings the current arc to an amazing close.  It also sets up the new status quo going forward and redeems a character that I thought I'd never like.  Great job by everyone involved.

    I found the Deadshot illness troubling but the Reverse Flash arc made up for that. We learned some things but are faced with new questions mainly how will Amanda fair in the field and what is Sages agenda. A very satisfactory read and I continue to look forward to this title. Read Full Review

    This is a very strong conclusion. The character moments with Reverse Flash, Harley, and Manta are engaging with some fun action, great artwork and an unexpected heroic sacrifice. I highly recommend reading this entire storyline; it is quite good. Read Full Review

    This is a solid story for Suicide Squad fans but there might not be much for anyone else. Read Full Review

    As a first-time reader, I expected "New Suicide Squad Annual" #1 to be a solid gateway for me to get into the series. Instead, it showed me that what the title was doing was more or less par for course. Nothing really stuck out to me, save for a couple metahuman rampages, and any attempts at being poignant felt incredibly forced and cheesy. "New Suicide Squad" #1 isn't a bad comic, but it is my definition for a mediocre one. Read Full Review
