    This is the start to a great new adventure in the series. Always one of my favorite artists, I was sad to see that Patrick Zircher was going to be separated from recent Suicide Squad writer, Ales Kot. Rest assured, though he will be missed on this book, he's got other things coming out right now that we can all read. And Kindt is doing a stellar job. I know it may be a little premature, but I'm going to go ahead and call it. This is the book to watch. Finally, I think it's going to get noticed the way it should have been all along. Keep up the good work, guys! Read Full Review

    So much going on in this issue.  Matt Kindt certainly jammed his first issue of Suicide Squad full of awesome.  I was really hoping at this new start we wouldn't be seeing James Gordon Jr.  Man I hate him.  But with all the extras thrown in I really can't complain that much.  I'm really interested in seeing where Mr. Kindt will take us on his journey, and already can't wait for next month.  Only downside isn't really a downside.  This is a book full of characters, and it has always been, it just might be too many for one issue, especially if it continues to be this chock full.  But it was a fun issue, check it out.

    I haven't picked up Suicide Squad in a while and thought I heard good things about Kot's run, I really enjoyed this issue by Kindt. We basically have two Squads facing off for a very large prize. The actual squad being run by a Amanda Waller who is confined to Belle Reve while an alternate, hero Squad is being manipulated by Crime Syndicate's new agent – the Thinker and his bodyguard, Kind Shark. We also have a wildcard, in the form of James Gordon Jr. running around, which to me seems like a natural Suicide Squad tale. This seems to perfectly set inside Forever Evil and I would love to see some of the heroic Squaders stick around post Forever Evil or stay with Kindt to his next DC book. As usual, Zircher is stellar and his tone fits the dark theme of the book. Read Full Review

    James seems to be the main focus here and it's something different yet welcome seeing how he sees the big picture. Through his eyes this situation is easier to be explored and understood being the insightful criminal mind he is. Best choice overall and has the most motivation for rescuing Waller, as he is still in love with her. Hopefully we get to see what he is really capable of when he has something to fight for.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 9, 2013

    For the most part, Kindt's writing style falls closely in line with Kot's. This arc thrives on the fact that the normally unassailable Waller is caught in desperate straits as the inmates of Belle Reve riot. And the twist he delivers late in this issue promises to keep the conflict interesting. But there are cases where Kindt's dialogue and narration could stand to be trimmed down. Often characters seem to speak more for the benefit of newbie readers than because they're engaging in legitimate conversations. Granted, this arc is probably going to attract a few new readers, but there's no reason to sacrifice the flow of a story for the sake of playing catch-up. That's what recap pages are supposed to do.

    For those who doubt him, say he doesn't know what he is doing, I say read this issue and really read it because it is fantastic and has laid the groundwork for future issues that will have major ramifications on the Squad. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 9, 2013

    Matt's first issue is certainly not bad and gets the ball rolling for this arc well enough, but it doesn't really pull you in and ends right before it starts getting good. The artwork and a couple of good moments do keep things from being dull, but this book is going to have pump things up in the next issue quickly. Read Full Review

    "Suicide Squad" #24 is a good start for Kindt and Zircher working together on the series, and it feels like momentum is just starting to pick up here. It's definitely worth keeping an eye on; Kindt's normally quite reliable as a writer, and I'm hoping that this book picks up some stability under his watch. So far, so good. Read Full Review

    Matt Kindt started off strong in his first issue of Suicide Squad. Although it wasnt without problems it was definitely and enjoyable read from start to finish, and even better the second time through, leaving you excited for the next issue. I was originally hesitant about Matt Kindt on Suicide Squad after his portrayal of Harley Quinn during Villains Month but this issue did a lot to set my worries aside. With Kindts writing and Zirchers art this book remains one of the most enjoyable books of the New 52 and one I strongly recommend reading if you havent already. Read Full Review
