    Speaking of O. M. A. C., how great is it that DC is finally not only getting and accepting, but embracing that a bunch of these characters work really well in a book like this? Steel isn't a bad character, just one that should be in a team book. Deadshot is amazing, but would totally fall flat with his own series. And add to the mix a couple of fan-favorites (Harley Quinn, Waller, Gordon, etc.) and you've got a recipe for a best-seller each and every month. So even though this is a bit of a "cheat" in terms of new material, it still satisfies the craving for insanity each and every month. Can't wait to see what happens in the next issue. And it's going to be really fun to see what sort of shakeup happens as we head toward the end of Forever Evil. I'm sure there'll be some deaths. And replacements. And returns. Read Full Review

    Most of the issue feels like filler, full of information we already know.  But somehow I found this story fun, and at times delightfully surreal.  I don't know how to really describe it but halfway through the issue I didn't like it, but by the time I got to the end I did.  Possibly it's just what the book might be leading to that got me excited, but be the judge.  With April's solicits calling issue 30 the end, get your Suicide Squad fun while you can.

    SUICIDE SQUAD #27 feels like it was made just for new readers, which is odd since it's already well into the storyline and the issue's not being promoted as a jumping on point or anything like that. If you've been following the book, odds are the constant leaping from one origin story to the next will feel abrupt and make you wish there was more focus on the present. On the plus side, they still amuse and make a few key developments. I know there's a lot of characters in two completely different locations, but hopefully the next issue will be able to balance both groups well and take some big steps with the current timeline.

    DC Comics News - Jacob Torres Jan 18, 2014

    There are good pieces in Suicide Squad #27, but it never quite manages to come together. The placement of this issue is just puzzling, coming in the middle of an arc and slowing things down considerably. While its interesting to learn more about the character, it shouldnt have come at the expense of the story. With the exception of a rather egregious boobs and butt pose, the art is definitely the saving grace. Suicide Squad #27 ultimately is an underwhelming effort that didnt feel like it was worth the cover price for the story alone. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Jan 17, 2014

    Suicide Squad doesnt really have a purpose anymore. The events of Forever Evil never really come into play, making it an ineffective tie. Whatever promise it had in its early issues is not being delivered. This is a perfectly forgettable comic that is beneath the talent involved. Read Full Review
