    DC Comics News - Danny Saab Mar 8, 2017

    Williams, combined with incredible art from Romita, Jr. and Barrows, gives us a fantastic issue where good and evil are constantly being tested. There are so many questions left unanswered after this issue, and that's to the testament of the incredible writingby Williams to hook us in, and to make us care aboutthese larger then life villains or heroes, depending on your definition.

    Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, and Adriano Lucasprovide the pop inspired visuals that brought this half of the issue to life. The intermittent bright pops of color with the hard lines shadows gives an ominous tone to the story. The artwork engages the reader and prepares us for that gut check in the final panel.

    Comicsverse - Robert Lewis Mar 14, 2017

    A great read from start to finish, Suicide Squad #13 gives us a lot in terms of overall content. In terms of emotion, great story telling, and great character development, this was by far my favorite issue in the series to date. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 9, 2017

    Suicide Squad is easily one of the best books being released by DC at the moment. If you haven't been reading the title, I urge you go pick up the first trade, but do so knowing that that story is just scratching the surface. This issue continues so much of what's been building for months/ weeks, the result feels incredibly satisfactory! Read Full Review

    As cliffhangers go, the one at the end of Suicide Squad#13 is a doozy! I need to see what happens next! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 8, 2017

    It's great to see Suicide Squad taking its place alongside the other titans of the DC Rebirth lineup. The series is in better overall shape following the Justice league vs. Suicide Squad crossover. The characterization is deeper and the two halves of the book are finding a better balance.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 8, 2017

    While the art isn't at the quality as it was during Jim Lee's run, Suicide Squad is making up with a killer, unpredictable storyline. I've got no idea what's going to happen next issue and I'm loving it. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 8, 2017

    ‘Burning Down the House' continues to live up to the name this issue. After Suicide Squad #13 it will be hard to ever look at things the same way again. The team can't be the way it was given the loss and the betrayal they have gone through. Not that I'm still with the person who was killed off, but the story and plot continues picking up in intensity. Read Full Review

    Although Suicide Squad #13 suffers from mixed art, the overall plot is tremendous and wonderfully creative. Expect some haunting, poignant character moments. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Tracy Sayers Mar 16, 2017

    This is another great outing for the squad franchise. It lets us know what they truly wanted if they were ever free. The writing is fantastic and the imagery works perfectly with the story line. Ending on a OH MY GOD moment was a great way to end this issue. I am looking forward to the next one. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - James Portis Mar 20, 2017

    Im not going to even beat the dead horse of the art. If you want to know how I feel, see my Suicide Squad #11 review. the story however is very well done, Flagg and Katanas capture and the persuasion of Rustam, Harleys sadness of the betrayal of Deadshot, the surprise ended that has me stuttering in confusion. Very good read, I cant wait for the next issue and I cant wait to be rid of John Romita Jr off my book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 8, 2017

    I do appreciate how Rob Williams is juggling two stories per issue, allowing them to inform each other in creative ways, but this whole thing seems to be going nowhere slowly. I think I need to know more about Harcourt, and quickly. Also, John Romita Jr. can't draw faces very well. I'm taking a stand here and now. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Mar 8, 2017

    An element of the plot that's been teased for quite some time is the presence of a spy in the Squad. We found out who the spy is in this issue, and it is entirely unexpected. I can't wait to see where Rob Williams takes it from here. Certain members of the Squad such as Hack and Deadshot are given more time to develop. We still have characters that need serious work, such as Rustam. I very much appreciate that he didn't end up in the dumpster following Justice League vs. Suicide Squad and is the villain of this arc, but he needs to do more than simply taunt Flag and Katana. I want to see him as an actual physical threat, someone who is genuinely a danger to the Squad and the world. We haven't been getting that, and it disappoints me. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Mar 10, 2017

    Rob Williams continues the plot here, but on top of the pacing being off, it just seems rushed. I thought we were going to have an issue dedicated to solving the murder of Amanda Waller, but we blitz right past that into smashing Deadshot in the face. Even John Romita Jr.'s work seemed rushed. His anatomy was inconsistent at times, and the scene where Deadshot is escaping the prison was told poorly. It, again, blitzed right through this moment, making what could have been a great scene, cannon fodder. Read Full Review
