    And returning to “Lured” as a kind of frame one last time, this is an Amanda Waller that more and more finds herself recast as HST himself, who has the courage to leave out Einstein, but may do say at the peril of later having to pay the same ultimate price as Hemingway. Read Full Review

    Even though this is very much a transition issue, it is still a great read. I would go as far as to label this as the most underrated book in the line. And I'm glad that they are finally just admitting that it is, will be, and has been a Bat-book all along. Read Full Review

    So I'm in for at least the next issue, to see how this all plays out. And if Floyd Lawton can be resurrected with his proper look and then get weird powers every time he dies and comes back, that could be very entertaining. But seriously, ditch the everyday boring loser look. GIVE HIM BACK THE STACHE AND THAT BLACK GREASY HAIR. It's amazing how much of a difference a look can make sometimes in keeping characters from feeling generic. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jake Baumgart Nov 15, 2012

    A Harley-heavy issue delivered by Adam Glass and Frenando Dagnino probably isn't very upsetting to longtime readers. However, the fluidity is lost in the issue with the back-and-forth of what's happening to Harley and Joker while the team deals with the fallout of their battle with Regulus and the death of Deadshot. Harley fans are certainly rejoicing this month, but readers who are invested in a little more might feel slighted. Read Full Review

    I have mixed feelings about Suicide Squad #14. First I liked it, but after stewing on it for a couple of days I find myself getting more and more disenchanted by it. I expected a bit more from the Joker. His appearance in this issue was very underwhelming. Still, this is a must read for Harley fans, and you should also read Batman #13 and #14 which connect with this issue and the "Death of the Family" story arc. Regardless, I'm still looking forward to seeing how Harley gets out of her dilemma in the next issue of Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Nov 15, 2012

    This issue has some solid artwork and a very disturbing and somewhat depressing scene between Harley and the Joker but overall it doesn't add much to the Death of the Family story nor does it move along the plot for Suicide Squad fans. It's not a bad read for Harley lovers (although many of us still hate her New 52 character design with a passion), but it's not a necessary read fo Read Full Review

    So I have officially given up on this series. Yeah, I will buy the tie in issues just purely for any Joker appearances, and also for his interactions with Harley. Apart from that I am done with this series. I am going to miss Harley as she is one of my favourite DC characters; but alone she does not warrant the money that this series costs. If Harley had her own book then I would not have one single regret about dropping this book. It is a shame really as it used to be such a great series, and I hope one day that it can get back to those heights. If it does then I will no doubt be hopping back on board. But for now, me and this series are estranged. Read Full Review

    The Aside from the opening scene, which I liked quite a bit, there's not a whole lot else going on in the book until the final two pages, which creates some "when did this actually happen?" contradictions if you think about it, but that's not really worth getting into. As said above, I wish this issue just dealt with "Death of the Family" and only that, rather than a little DoTF, then a repeat of issue #8. Hopefully the next issue is more focused on DoTF.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 14, 2012

    Fernando Dagnino's art is generally solid, with plenty of moody, shadowy visuals that fit the somber tone of this post-battle installment. The one element that stands out is Harley's choice of funeral attire. It seems she now dresses like a Suicide Girl no matter the occasion, and her revealing dress manages to rob the funeral of whatever emotional weight it might have had. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 15, 2012

    "Suicide Squad" in general is a fun comic, but this detour feels like a slight derailment of the general momentum of the title. Fortunately the pieces that are able to continue on keep the book moving well enough, and hopefully "Death of the Family" might even add in a few new regular readers to the title, too. It's not bad, but it's certainly been a lot better. Read Full Review
