    This issue is a beautifully well-written end of an arc and a perfectly plotted out start of a new one. A clear line has been drawn in the sand and allegiances are solidified and destroyed. There's a lot going on in this episode and some pretty good surprises but, one of the things that really impressed me was the degree of talent in the story telling. This is one of those issues that those who are new to the story could pick up, still know what's going on and want to not only follow along in the next issue but, maybe play catch up just so they have something to keep them occupied while they wait, for what'll seem like the longest two weeks ever, for the next issue.

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning Apr 8, 2017

    All she wants is to understand why Deadshot betrayed them and try and bring some sense of normalcy back to the Suicide Squad. Her reaction when attempting to reason with Deadshot, and especially when she discovers what happened to Hack bring the chracer major depth, and the comic benefits from it. The dialoge is great and totally fitting for the characters, and the art is still really great. The tone is both grim nd determined. If you care about ny member of the Squad or are in the middle of reading this book series, get this issue as soon as you can, you will not be disappointed! Read Full Review

    As for the ending of the issue. It was both a surprise, and something I had expected all along. Suffice it to say, I was very happy, and I believe other readers will be as well. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a great Harley story, or just a great story in general, this issue is it. The two cliffhangers in this issue definitely leave something to look forward to in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 22, 2017

    Shocking twist at the end aside, Suicide Squad is on a roll bringing definition to what it means to be on this team. Not Amanda Waller's meaning, but the meaning of the ones who put their lives on the line every mission. Suicide Squad #14 is another issue showing us why this isn't a book to overlook. There is just as much substance to this story as there is wall-to-wall action. Read Full Review

    I really shouldn't be surprised after reading comics for over 40 years, but DC is on a roll. I read the old Ostrander Suicide Squad comics back in the day, but only dipped in and out of the subsequent reboots. The work of Rob Williams and the gang is refreshing and really keeps me coming back for more. Suicide Squad #14 gets another solid: Read Full Review

    This issue's big payoff is one readers probably saw coming, but Williams effectively baits the hook to get them eagerly anticipating next issue. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad picks the pace up and delivers a needed strong issue...I just hope it maintains that momentum. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 23, 2017

    Williams continues his warpath with Suicide Squad, and if you've been reading since the beginning, you have to feel as though you're receiving quite the pay-off. This specific issue " while containing many incredible moments " ends a little sub-par compared to what we're used to. I think the true test will be to see what happens in this title following this arc. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Mar 23, 2017

    Still trying to get back to a (relative) degree of normalcy following their dust-up with the Justice League, Suicide Squad's latest is still a bit rough around the edges. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Mar 22, 2017

    Suicide Squad #14 is one of those comics where the sum is somewhat lesser than it's relatively enjoyable individual parts. The creative team of Rob Williams and John Romita Jr. is solid enough, to be sure, but poor pacing and format choices stifle whatever potential this issue could have had. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Mar 22, 2017

    This issue proves that it is by far the weakest double-shipped book that DC is currently putting out. While there is a foundation for a solid, interesting story, the division of the book into two parts, the bad art, and the unnatural pace of this arc just make this issue quite unsatisfying.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 22, 2017

    The story meanders along slowly despite cataclysmic events happening in the background. Looks like most everything will snap back to start soon enough, lowering the stakes to nothing at all. It's tough to root for any characters in this book. Eddy Barrows art, however, is terrific. Read Full Review
