"EARTHLINGS ON FIRE" finale! The saga of the Black Vault comes to an appropriately insane finale when General Zod breaks free of Amanda Waller's control, lays waste to the Suicide Squad and prepares to welcome an army of Kryptonian conquerors from the twisted realm within the Black Vault. But help arrives from the least likely allies: the Eradicator and Cyborg-Superman!

    Ouch is the only word that could pass my lips by the end of Suicide Squad #19. This ended the only way it could and there's a lot of backlash that will come from this. Waller might have some things to answer for, one person in particular walked away from this broken, and controlling this team just got a whole lot harder. ‘Black Vault' turned out to be a winner in my book for a number of memorable moments which shined a different light on this team.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 14, 2017

    The story of Zod the Odd Bod on the Squad concludes, and in hindsight it's been a lot of fun. The dialogue is good, the action is fierce, and this comic embraces silly comic book weirdness in a way that I really enjoy. It's worth mentioning that Tony S. Daniel does not draw this issue, but it's still a really fun conclusion to a very strange story. Read Full Review

    Fortunately Williams has the formula down for strong Suicide Squad outings. This one is no different and definitely sets up a significant change to the status quo going forward. Read Full Review

    Definitely a great read, and leaves room for a rather interesting future for the Squad. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jun 15, 2017

    Art wise the issue is good. Not great. Edwards does a fine job, and the battle scenes are dynamic. He doesnt seem too strong on faces, though, particularly for characters who are not the main focal point of the panel. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 14, 2017

    Williams wraps up this short arc in a fun, explosive way, one that'll see a couple of characters really deal with the events in the stories to come. The art couldn't hold up to Daniel's previous work but Edwards was the best replacement they could have found. Read Full Review

    I count myself fortunate with the books I review. Suicide Squad hasn't always been the greatest comic in the world, but since the DC Rebirth Rob Williams has beenwriting one of the best team books on the shelves. In most instances his storieshave been complemented with some spectacular artwork.Suicide Squad19 continues this tradition. Read Full Review

    With the focus of the story being on Zod, the Eradicator, andCyborg Superman, the Suicide Squad feels like guest characters in their ownbook. The encounter with the Supermenleaves one of the Squad members dead, finally making Suicide Squad interestingagain. The death in this issue looks toset up future stories, so this is a great time to jump on for new readers. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jun 15, 2017

    Despite some minor missteps early in the issue, Williams turns everything around to give Suicide Squad #19 an incredible finish! I'm highly critical with the books I review, and Suicide Squad is no exception. My complaints here are nit-picks, and not much else. If you've been reading the title, continue to do so. If you haven't given Rob Williams' Suicide Squad a chance, then I urge you to do so. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Jun 16, 2017

    This issue is mostly just an action piece. It felt like filler. People make dumb decisions that don't make sense in hindsight" or in the moment itself. It just feels like Rob Williams has almost given up on this book as much as I have. Read Full Review

    A skippable issue that rings false in a variety of ways. Read Full Review
