    By the end of the issue, all of the Squad have been questioned about Amanda's death, as all of them are suspects. The conclusion seems to reveal who the killer is, but I am as positive that far more is going on here than it appears. Read Full Review

    Overall this issue was exactly what it needed to be. We got the end of one major characters life fused with a rogue former squad members evil plan coming to fruition, an act that can propel the story even further. The stories are self contained enough to stand alone at their respective short lengths but, nice to see together in one issue. There's enough catalysts in these two stories to tell a ton of stories and keep these arcs going for many issues to come. Read Full Review

    It takes a bold writer to completely reshape a book's world, but that's what writer Rob Williams does in Suicide Squad #12. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Feb 22, 2017

    Rob Williams just keeps reminding us that he knows how to tell a story and that he can allow characters to come to life. He has made us care about serial killers. That is no small feat. In real life, I am not a fan, but in this world, ever other week, I root for the baddies. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 22, 2017

    Suicide Squad #12 for the most part is another solid issue. They made their big move killing off Waller and one really has to wonder if they want us to look at what's right in front of us or continue to expect the unexpected as we always should when it comes to Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Feb 23, 2017

    The real gem of this issue, is the back-up story. Yes, some substantial plot development occurs in the main story involving Rustam, but I honestly wasn't too fond of this. The back-up, which puts the Squad front and center, is where all of the magic happens! Williams has a winning formula (great characters + a well-planned plot + consequences) continue to drive this book, and leave me anxious for more each and every issue! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - James Portis Mar 10, 2017

    Hopefully this story picks up and ends up having a good ending. The wall is gone and the team is falling apart especially with the reveal of a spy within the ranksI gotta stop spoiling stuff. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Feb 22, 2017

    The story moves in fits and starts, but it does move forward so that's a good thing. I enjoyed the second yarn in this issue more than the first, but they are very different in style and tone purposefully. Both tales have artwork that must be seen to be believed: the hilarious one can be seen on the title page of the issue, but the second story's art by Eddy Barrows is really incredible. So take a look. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Feb 24, 2017

    Rob Williams does a better job in the second half of his story. I feel like it's part of the story he's more interested in, and so he's putting a little more work into it. Eddy Barrows' work here is amazing. The way this guy draws people… the detail he puts in their faces just blows me away. There were a few panels where he's trying to continue the painted feel that he did in Detective Comics, but it felt unnecessary to me (I'm talking about the Harley panels at the end). Eber Ferreira inks here, and does a fantastic job. His lines are very thin and real smooth, giving contrast, yet letting the color do its thing. The standout to me here was Adriano Lucas on colors. The guy really cuts loose here, establishing the right mood in the first few pages, keeping up with the continuity of where things are later, and having the huevos to do grey tones only in a flashback scene.

    Suicide Squad has been an enjoyable read for DC. Hopefully, this was just a bad day at the office and it rebounds next issue. Read Full Review
