    Suicide Squad is constantly putting out good stories. Some stories have been better than others, but each issue has been worth the cover price. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up from this reviewer! Read Full Review

    Interesting, but I like my Waller heavy, not this thin. And I would have like to see the Squad in action, and “early” mission perhaps. Okay, but I wanted something else. Read Full Review

    And for Adam's writing to be able to describe a psychological evolution from HST climbing down that hill, to Alexander climbing down from his, in as terse panels as he does, points to Adam's (who entered the popular imagination as a filmmaker) own unlikely strength in writing for the medium. Simply put, Suicide Squad #0 deserves to be read. Read Full Review

    Fernando Dagnino does some pretty good work in this issue, though, helping the rather lackluster narrative of the big showdown shine a bit brighter. The especially creepy aftermath is the best part of the book, though he isn't quite able to sell Waller's emotions. That's part of the larger problem, really, is that Dagnino seems only to operate on adrenaline and anger, with little subtlety in between for the more introspective moments. Still, his figure work is generally expressive and he's got a penchant for creative great atmosphere alongside colorist Matt Yackey. Read Full Review

    Overall, this felt like a huge advertisement for Team 7. Since the first Team 7 came out the same week as Suicide Squad, it really felt like overkill. This issue had more to do with Amanda Waller and her associations with Team 7. It would have been nice to have a story based around the actual squad members and anecdotes about their origins, instead of this being an entire issue dedicated to Amanda Waller on her lonesome. I was a little disappointed because I've really liked the entirety of the Suicide Squad run so far. Unless one is an Amanda Waller or Team 7 enthusiast, this book was a bit of a letdown.

    I lost touch with "Suicide Squad" rather early in the run, so I was curious what was waiting for me in this issue, especially since I had given the first issue four stars a year ago. This issue truly disappointed on all counts. Read Full Review
