    The Squad is consistently surprising me and keeping me on the edge of my seat. I love that Glass is now focusing on the Joker and Harley's past relationship and what it now means for the rebooted DCU. Read Full Review

    The best issue of Suicide Squad yet, kicking off what is sure to be a highly dramatic and emotionally heart-ripping arc. Superb. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Feb 8, 2012

    Suicide Squad #6 continues the book's trend to rocket forward in unexpected new directions. More importantly, it continues the trend of improving steadily. If you've been unsure about this title to date, this is place to jump on. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Garth the Geek Feb 10, 2012

    Despite this, I can't stress enough what a pleasant surprise this comic ended up being. It's almost a shame, after issue 7, that I'll probably go back to avoiding it. At least until Harley stops looking like she's trying to promote her straight-to-DVD release, "Clown Whores Gone Wild". Read Full Review

    I enjoyed Clayton Henry's work in this issue and especially when the Squad comes face-to-face with what I can only characterize as the transvestite army of Harley Quinn. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - shathley Q Mar 5, 2012

    I think that, and I realize how desperately wounded I am just by having partaken in that conversation earlier last week. Is there honestly no way forward for comics criticism than a paucity of imagination and ambition? Adam's Squad again, and it hits me that this is Adam's own wrestling with, and exorcising the drama of redemption that has haunted Western Literature since its origins. Now only TS Eliot seems to have enough of a response: ""the future is a faded song"/Of wistful regret for those who are not yet here to regret,/Pressed between yellow leaves of a book that has never been opened./And the way up is the way down, the way forward is the way back./You cannot face it steadily, but this thing is sure,/That time is no healer: the patient is no longer here".

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 14, 2012

    A very different kind of Suicide Squad story, being more farce than thriller, but Glass makes it work, to the point that it even has echoes of Secret Six at certain points"and that's high praise indeed. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Feb 9, 2012

    Overall, still not a book I'm interested in reading, but not quite the crapfest I expected this book to be for as long as it lasted. It's okay. It's just not for me. Read Full Review
