    Suicide Squad #10 will and should be remembered for any who forget that Suicide Squad can't be compelling. Even the likes of Waller have a story to them, and it won't always be the cold boos whose ready to blow your brains out. It can be enlightening to the reason why she is that person. For that reason this story is as memorable as they come. Read Full Review

    And the total downer ending does function exceptionally well as a coda to the miniseries. Amanda Waller always wins. No matter what the cost. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #10 was a wonderful read from cover to cover. It can stand alone as a one-off issue or blend well into a new story arc with minimal loss of understanding in between issues. The issue ended on a note that was somber enough to be a full stop ending and hopeful enough to start a new chapter. The art and writing blended together seamlessly and created a cohesive and beautiful world covered in bleakness with just enough hope to keep things going and progressing. This issue would serve as a great entry point for people who have never read a comic before. It has a very human story at its core with minimal metahuman power showing, this would allow new readers to become invested in the characters as people before introducing all of the amazing superhuman things they can do. Humanizing the characters makes the story relatable and creates a nice gateway into comic books as a whole. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 25, 2017

    This was a nice conclusion to the crossover with a more personal angle that finished tying up a pivotal loose end. If you didn't invest in the crossover you can skip this one, but well worth a read for those interested in every side story from the big event. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Jan 25, 2017

    Suicide Squad #10 is a well-told done-in-one story spinning out of the denouement of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad. It builds on the event by telling a character-focused story that deepens our understanding of Amanda Waller. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jan 25, 2017

    One key factor that has led to Williams' success with Suicide Squad, is balance. He manages to balance everything beautifully " the action, characters, plot progression" Every aspect of this title is thought out, and executed well. With roughly ten characters to juggle, and multiple, big, high-action, plots (including an "event"), he somehow manages to keep his narrative grounded. Unlike many writers and stories being published at the moment, Williams has a long-term vision, and it shows. I'll be a happy man if he continues with the title for the next few years. Suicide Squad needs that kind of direction, and more importantly, it deserves it. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad, under the direction of Rob Williams, has become storytelling at its finest. Good storytelling requires interesting characters doing interesting things. I think this qualifies. The next book is called, "The end of Amanda Waller." I am intrigued but I am not concerned. No one stays dead in the DC universe. Not even Jason Todd. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Jan 24, 2017

    Writing a satisfying epilogue for a massive event like the Justice League/Suicide Squad crossover can be a hard thing to do, but Rob Williams & Si Spurrier manage to do just by focusing on something small. Instead of trying to build upon the excitement of the limited series, they slow the story down and focus on the very real issues of a strained family. Although the events may be populated with super beings and terrorist, this is still a story of an absentee parent and the havoc that can wreck on children. Rustam’s plan for revenge was simple. To utterly destroy Amanda Waller he only had to show her that in the eyes of those she holds most dear, she is nothing more than the monster he has long claimed her to be. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis Feb 3, 2017

    Suicide Squad #10 is a short but good epilogue to the crossover event this title just came off of but, also gives some backstory about Amanda Waller. The art isa little odd. Not bad but there were random things. Like excess crying from Coretta, Deadshots hair being the longest Ive ever seen it that if Waller wouldnt have called him Deadshot I would have thought it was a different villain all together. So, the art was average to me. One big thing that Im concerned with is that yes enchantress was not in this issue, but besides Harley, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang, the rest of the squad should be expendable warriors. Were getting to a point that Task Force X is having a staple cast when it shouldnt. So hopefully this changes as the comic Continues. I feel comfortable giving this book was a very good read and it expanded the story with some okay artwork. Catch you folks next time. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 25, 2017

    Waller's life is thrown for a loop as the fallout of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad has repercussions for her. The writing team uses this issue to build towards a possible change, or at least major character development for Waller, though to devote an entire issue to this seemingly minor moment does push the reader's patience.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 25, 2017

    An Amanda Waller-centric story that is a little discomfiting, which may be the point. This is a one-off issue and you don't need to read it if you're just following the Suicide Squad series, but if you want to know the complete story of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, you'll have to give it a look. It won't kill you. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Jan 27, 2017

    Giuseppe Cafaro is the artist here. He does an okay job, but his work isn't my favorite. He gets a bit too heavy on the ink in the first full page. It's not like the page is covered in inks, it just looks like he made a mistake on one character and tried to cover it with heavy amounts of black ink. The rest of the issue, he struggles with consistency in his style. It changes from panel to panel, as he tries to figure out the tone on the run. Hi-Fi colors this issue. I don't have any issues here, I've just never been a huge fan of his work. He does an okay job, but nothing spectacular. Pat Brosseau letters this issue. He does a good job, but it irritated me when Waller's daughter screamed at her for a paragraph, which probably isn't Brosseau's fault, but the text did add to it. Read Full Review
