    The series that used to be a guilty pleasure slowly matured into one of my favorite books. Then the writer left and we got a new one. Which was actually good because, somehow, he was even better than the one before him. Then he left. And now we have a new one. Big shoes to fill, but certainly a capable writer of doing so. Kindt has proven that he's totally in charge and completely at home with these characters and these off-the-walls crazy plots. This is back on its way to becoming my favorite books on the stands again. We'll see how this next issue plays out, but I'm going to go ahead and jump the gun here and say that it will be nothing short of awesome. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Nov 16, 2013

    Suicides Squad is one of the many books out there that really gains something from its ties to Forever Evil. Seeing the evils that resurface and what that means for this world when majority of the heroes are MIA. It's clever that Kindt takes this opportunity to remind us of how unpredictable Harley can be. In fact it is something he emphasizes heavily through Thinker. That is something to look forward to because anything can happen when it's involving her. Aside from this Patrick Zircher brings back that style which makes this book feel so grim, yet thrilling. The darkness in everyone's expressions and the action scenes that makes this high-octane.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 13, 2013

    Suicide Squad #25 is a step in the right direction for the book, keeping up the momentum that was started in the final pages of the last book. It makes its characters smart and unique, while having the scenario keep changing to keep the audience interested. It's always good to see a book get better after an average or worse start, so let's continue forward hoping this book can keep up this improved level of quality. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 15, 2013

    As a fan of the classic work Ostrander did with "Suicide Squad," I've found the New 52's incarnation lacking. That streak seems to be broken with "Suicide Squad" #25. While "Forever Evil" fuels the story, the success of this adventure is purely based on the efforts of Kindt and Zircher. There's not as much action from O.M.A.C. as I had hoped, but at least now I know where to find one of my favorite characters of the New 52 relaunch. The craziness surrounding O.M.A.C. and the Suicide Squad provides a nice, chaotic backdrop that doubles as fuel, propelling the story to wonderfully bizarre places as Kindt pours the action into "Suicide Squad."

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 14, 2013

    Last month's issue of Suicide Squad blew me away with the new direction it was taking, and the Forever Evil fun going on, plus adding a rag tag team of superheroes to throw at the Squad.  Sadly my hype doesn't continue after this issue.  But it was a decent issue, not going to put anything down.  Not every issue can be SMASH BANG POW, Kindt seems to be working towards something that could be really exciting in the future, but heading towards that goal we're bogged down with enigmatic exposition, and inner monologues.  So we'll see next month if the hype is resurrected, so go check it out.

    Writer Matt Kindt has a little fun with both teams as they realize how they've been brought together while Harley Quinn helps reveal the Thinker's true plot. Patrick Zircher's art doesn't have any real highlights but it is mostly consistent. Read Full Review
