    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Feb 8, 2017

    The first run all had Ramones songs as titles. This one started with a Talking Heads song. Williams is talking right to me. I can only hope he keeps it up. The Suicide Squad are a bunch of punks and misfits and I love them for it. I love the world that Williams has created. I have great hopes. Plus, that ending. Damn. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a well thought out and brilliantly executed issue and it was understandable and relatable to a point that if this was your first run in with the Squad you'd be on board to tune in for future issues. It has a solid start for both new arcs and both parts end in a way that make you want to read more. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Feb 8, 2017

    The issue following a major event can be difficult to write. You are forced to pick up on plots you put aside weeks ago, build on the momentum created during the event, and in some ways ever surpass it. Rob Williams manages to accomplish all through in this very thrilling issue by incorporating the character Rustam and his quest for vengeance into his larger story about the Annihilation Brigade the still mysterious Black Vault. With fantastic art by John Romita Jr. and Eddy Barrows this issue is sure to one of the best your read this week. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Feb 12, 2017

    More surprising is Captain Boomerang, partying hard, or trying to. His return from the dead has caused a change in his personality, one that he is not able to control. Try as he might, Boomerang is no longer able to be a crude sleazeball. Its downright tragic. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 8, 2017

    Aside from the choice in artist that I struggle to justify, Suicide Squad #11 does still hold potential in where this is taking us having Amanda Waller face the consequences of the lengths she was willing to go to get Batman off her back. Its odd when this time around it's the story at the back which holds your interest more for what happens then and what it leads to for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 8, 2017

    This is a new look for the Suicide Squad, but it remains an unpredictable and exciting read. With some big cliffhangers in both stories, I'm looking forward to what Williams has in store next. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Feb 10, 2017

    Again, Rob Williams maintains his pacing in the second half. His secondary stories have been the highlight of each issue, but in this comic, I felt like both stories were well done. Eddy Barrows art was solid, but there were a few pages where it felt rushed. Eber Ferreira does a great job inking here. I love the experimenting that he and Barrows have been doing with the shading. I'm not sure if it's water color or what, but it looks great. Adriano Lucas colors this, and does a good job of capturing the tone of the book from scene to scene. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Heather Joy Feb 8, 2017

    Suicide Squad is a book that doesnt get enough credit. Since rebirth, it has definitely become an entirely different animal than what it has been in the past without losing any of the charm or ingredients that add up to make these characters work together so well. Each character is given so much depth and personality, which is no easy feat to accomplish in just a few pages at a time. Rob Williams has breathed new life into a time honored story and he is definitely the right man for the job. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Feb 8, 2017

    We head back into familiar territory after the Justice League vs. Suicide Squad crossover, but some things are...different. The two stories contained in this issue read more like a two-act play, and this also means they both "count." I wouldn't call this a thrill-ride (because then Jim would mock me), but it is a pretty solid issue that lays out some intriguing developments--particularly the one on the last page which is quite the cliffhanger!

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 8, 2017

    Suicide Squad's bizarre structure continues to be the series' worst enemy. With a new artist on board for this arc, it's not clear why DC is sticking to the "half and half" approach. Still, this issue boasts some quality character work and offers a strong debut for John Romita, Jr. That's to say nothing of the gorgeous artwork on display in the backup story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Feb 9, 2017

    Suicide Squad #11 isn't the best issue, but what Williams accomplishes is needed. All of the reintroductions to various plots help refocus the narrative, while the character spotlights give us, the readers, a chance to breathe before jumping into the chaos and action again. The cliff hanger at the end though, that could leave people talking for years to come! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 8, 2017

    It's good, but not stellar. I found the issue entertaining due to Williams' ability to scatter character wrinkles throughout the story. Romita Jr. has his moments, and Barrows excels with atmosphere, but ultimately this is for fans of the series only. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis Mar 10, 2017

    The artIt sucks. I know that a good amount of people enjoy Romita Jrs artwork but honestly, the only semi good quality about it is the fact that he isnt the one coloring so it doesnt look as bland as it usually does. The way he draws the characters is horrendous, the laziness in the detail is bothersome, and it makes me miss Jim Lee on this title more than words can describeApparently Romita Jr is going to be the artist for the next 4 issues so I shall try to not let his art affect my rating next.

    Nerd Church Radio - Corrianne Hamlin Feb 8, 2017

    I am obsessed with this story and how it is always leaving me at “What is going on here?' kind of feeling. It starts out captivating and continues throughout the story. Just don't disappoint. What kills this comic for me is the art. I am by no means trying to be rude because my artistic talent is lucky to draw a stick family but I am not at all crazy about this Black Knight Monty Python Harley Quinn we have going on here. I like the colors and can deal with the rest of the sketch but Harley Quinn was ruined for me in this book. She has a signature look that you should at least try to mimic but was completely ignored for this. Story on point, art not so much. Truthfully I want to rate this lower but with the story line being so amazing I can look past the awful Harley Quinn art... kinda. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #11 is a serviceable issue that acts as setup for a fairly traditional plot. Read Full Review
