    There is still plenty of charm in this title. From the gross scene where O. M. A. C. pulls a corpse out of King Shark's mouth (from a few issues back) to Gordon being shot on accident and pretty much taken out of the action for the rest of the issue, Kindt still has plenty of laughs for such a dire situation. And then there's the charm (or lack thereof) of characters like Boomerang and Power Girl. All in all, I am sad to see this series go. But I will admit that making a team of expendable characters is certainly starting to get a little less believable, what with most of them being too popular to actually kill off now. I hope we get a nice wrap-up ending with the closing of Forever Evil. And, of course, that we get to see more of these characters in other books, whether its Harley Quinn, Justice League, or even a branch off of the upcoming Amanda Waller one-shot. Either way, count me in. Read Full Review

    This is a really fun issue, it's chock full of action and fighting, and actually a lot of laughs.  We're introduced to a new secret weapon to give the Squad an edge over OMAC, and while it maybe ridiculous, I can't wait to see what happens next.  So go check out this issue, and join in on the fun that is Suicide Squad.  While it lasts.

    Kindt's run on SUICIDE SQUAD started off real strong but has unfortunately taken a bit of a dive in quality. With this issue, he finally puts all of the characters back together and what this creates is basically one large melee with just a few plot developments. It's not going to make you fall in love with the book all over again, but, for the most part, it's an alright step back in the right direction. There's isn't nearly as much forced exposition in here as the previous issues and, a lack of motion aside, there's some really strong artwork which is sure to keep you absorbed. The cliffhanger leaves me with a few questions, but instead of jumping to conclusions, I'd much rather wait and see what explanations Kindt will offer in the next chapter. It's not the most memorable issue around, but it's a fine does of fun and there's just enough intrigue to likely lure you into the next issue. Read Full Review

    It's probably for the best that this book will soon be put out of its misery. Read Full Review
