    So there you have it. Action at its finest. Humorous dialogue. Psychotic serial killers trying to one-up each other in a deadly game of posturing. And the world in flames around them, desperately waiting to see who survives the upcoming onslaught. The best part about this book is the single fact that literally everyone is expendable. Even the fan favorites can die. And no matter what happens, how it all ends, and who survives when the dust clears, the realization for us normal folks just watching the chaos always creeps into the back of our minds: Whoever wins, we lose. After all, who is really going to save the world? And, more importantly, what's going to be their true motivation for doing so? This book rocks. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #26 delivers on all fronts with solid writing and art. Matt Kindt is taking this series in an exciting direction thats not to be missed. This issue was packed full of action, explosions, and a ton of plot developments. This isnt the best comic released this week but its consistently been an enjoyable title that you should definitely be reading. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 11, 2013

    In the end another great issue that brings to life that over the top nature of this book that we do like to see. Everyone has a stake in this fight, some more than others, but no one is safe when the biggest issue is the trust they have in one another. The art was great, very consistent with the dark tone of this plot, but then after page 18 things changed too noticeably. I really felt a bit turned off by how the style shifted and it wasn't any better either. It is the only problem that came with this issue though luckily that was not at the climax of it.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 11, 2013

    SUICIDE SQUAD is in the right hands and is awesome once again. Kindt's putting a strong focus on the absurd amount of manipulation that goes on at Belle Reve and it's generating plenty of gripping and twisted material. All of this is being brought to life in a wonderfully detailed manner by Zircher. Despite Quinn being a key player here, humor's pretty much cast aside and understandably so. When no one can trust anyone and bomb collars are involved, there isn't much to laugh about, is there? This book's definitely on the right track and should be on your radar. Hopefully we'll get to see more of the other characters soon enough. Read Full Review

    We were given a lot of hype last issue of things to come, and when reading this issue I feel a little let down.  Shark deities, and OMAC, how can you go wrong right?  Well you go wrong when nothing really happens, and you just get hype for what's coming in the next issue.  BAH.  Well here's to whats coming up in next issue, but I don't want to get you to hyped up, I hate letting people down.

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Dec 13, 2013

    Not much happens this issue, and what few characters Kindt seems to have a creative take on get needlessly sidelined. Now that the Thinker's plan is finally clear, maybe the reverse suicide squad will finally show up and give things a much-needed shaking up. Because I don't know how much more of Waller's self-aggrandizing monologue I can take. Read Full Review
