    This issue highlights the best of his work and the best of his art teams works, their talents combined, create a wonderful world for the Squad to exist in and do their best and their worst. Williams has the story follow a realistic tone where things aren't black and white but, he makes sure that those shades of gray are unique and pop, bringing an added layer to the story. Suicide Squad #15 is a solid read from cover to cover and the only fault that I find in it is that it was too short but, then again Williams is a master at leaving the readers wanting more.

    If you've read the entire story arc so far, chances are you're going to read this issue. If you haven't, then you should read this story arc. Williams tells an amazing story, and it's made that much better with some great artwork. So many questions left unanswered, that it leaves you biting your nails for the next one. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #15 brings us to the end of another story arc and it sure did pack a punch. Shaky in a few areas, but still everything you love about what this team does best. Still some questions to answer down the road as well as addressing how this team is holding up internally, but for now things keep moving forward. If there's anything to take from this story arc most, it is that you simply don't underestimate Waller. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis Apr 12, 2017

    Again, this conclusion is very well done, there are twists and turns and Amanda Waller is back on the throne where she belongs. It was a nice arc. I honestly dont think in the history of comics, Waller has died on the job and if she has, I have no memory of it. Where this books falls is John Romita Jr. I feel as if that if they had let Eddy Barrows do the art for the entire issue especially when Romita Jr makes an armatrary change like give Waller sunglasses at the begining that she didnt have at the end of the last issue in Barrowss panels, it Im very excited for the future of this series and I cant wait to see what happens next.

    This title lulls the reader into a false sense of security like no other. One box has been closed, but another can has been opened, threatening to leak its wriggling, disgusting contents everywhere. Mister Williams and his collaborators have delivered another solid: Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Apr 13, 2017

    I'm a huge fan of Suicide Squad, and an even bigger fan of Rob Williams! He consistently delivers well thought stories, and I want to hug him because he carries character arcs and progression from one story to the next. If you're looking for a book you can invest in, then Suicide Squad is definitely one that will deliver. I'd be willing to bet Williams has a three to five year plan, and I sincerely hope I get to witness his full story unfold! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 13, 2017

    This arc has also gone a long way towards making Task Force X feel like a close-knit unit and not just a random, movie-friendly assortment characters. Harley's rallying cry from last issue leads into some surprisingly upbeat moments for Captain Boomerang and his fellow escapees. Unfortunately, John Romita's art has deteriorated in quality compared to earlier chapters. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Tom Bacon Apr 12, 2017

    "Burning Down the House" has been a strong arc, but sadly, the resolution is a little lacking. Still, this issue of Suicide Squad bodes well for the future. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Apr 13, 2017

    Aside from some issues on the primary artwork, this was another strong installment in Williams run. Its well worth the time to catch up or just read this storyline. The squad is still a hot property since the film, but the creative team doesnt glamorize these character; theyre the alternative to or subversion of the superhero (although that does blur at times). The creative team may not have bomb implants in their brains, but lets hope they stay on this great collision course that is Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Apr 14, 2017

    As far as character development, and team dynamic, this was a very engaging story. Hopefully Williams can ride this momentum into the future and have only one artist on the book at a time. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 12, 2017

    With Tony S. Daniel coming on the book, and the team featuring General Zod, I really hope this series finds itself out of the dump brought onto it by Justice League vs. Suicide Squad. This issue, and this whole arc for that matter, was just not good at all. Eddy Barrows' art is the one saving grace, and there's not enough of it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 12, 2017

    If you like convoluted plots and moronic subterfuge, then this is the issue for you. The rest of us will find it's like something created while falling down a flight of stairs. I know conspiracies are supposed to be complex, but even the most speed-addled 9/11 Truther would be incredulous at this. Eddy Barrows sure can draw, though. Read Full Review
