"FALSE FLAG" part one! Task Force X needs a new team leader, and the pickings are slim: a cannibalistic crocodile-man, a schizophrenic witch-demon, a one-armed assassin, a lady who talks to her sword and a racist drunkard. But there's also the homicidal clown-girl who, devastated by the loss of her crush, returns to a dark and violent path from which there can be no escape...

    This team has earned Suicide Squad its first ever perfect score. DC's HR department have done a fine job managing people. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole Jun 28, 2017

    I must admit I was blown-away by this issue. The photo-realistic art style by Stjepan Sejic is breathtaking, and after the events of last issue that finally shook up the Squad's roster the story has finally piqued my interest. This is the most interesting issue of Suicide Squad I've read in a long time and is a great jumping on point for new readers. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 28, 2017

    The leadership choice has me worried Suicide Squad is about to become a little too much like the movie. That's a problem for another time though. For now, issue #20 was an exceptional slice of life look at the Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 29, 2017

    This issue is equal parts funny, wistful and optimistic, and further proof that Sejic needs to be a recurring face in the Rebirth lineup. Read Full Review

    A fantastic book that truly stands out. The ending was a great cliff-hanger, and who knows, we might have actually met someone whose evenworse then Waller. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 28, 2017

    Who Waller chooses to lead the Suicide Squad was pretty shocking even if on the surface it made sense. Suicide Squad #20 definitely made us work for that answer and the exploration was worth it for some crucial character development. These may be villains, but they are still people underneath. It was sad, it was suspenseful, yet above all it was moving to an extent. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jun 30, 2017

    If there's one thing that's certain, you can always count on Suicide Squad for an entertaining read. Whether it be full of action, character focused, or a little wacky, Williams is sure to deliver. Add to that guarantee by enhancing Williams' script with art as beautiful as Sejic's and you're blessed with an amazing gift! Go get this issue! If you haven't been reading Suicide Squad, I highly recommend catching up. If you don't have the time or funds to catch up, this could be a decent starting point. Either way, this is a book you need to be reading! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 28, 2017

    We take a break from our usual non-stop bullet-time beheadings for a more contemplative issue of character studies. After the last arc, such a thing is welcome, particularly when drawn by Stjepan Sejic. I mean, let's be real: even if it were Katana doing her laundry, it would still be great if Sejic drew it. If the story can be engaging and funny besides, that's a bonus. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Andrew Wheeler Jun 28, 2017

    Suicide Squad #20 gives you everything you want out of the Suicide Squad without even having to throw a punch. It also delivers one of the best stories between an unlikely coupling. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 28, 2017

    This one-shot explored some the dynamics between the characters in the Suicide Squad, with the standout being Sejic's art, who is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists. Pick this issue up, as well as Aquaman #25 to really see what I'm talking about. I think this story was necessary to provide a bit of breathing room and to let this book have its own story as opposed to playing second fiddle to other titles. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - J.P. Harvey Jul 4, 2017

    But overall the flaws are minor. Again I'm reminded of DC's past with Justice League International, and I see Sejic joining the ranks of legends like Kevin Maguire and Adam Hughes. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Erin Schramm Jul 1, 2017

    Beautifully drawn, even if Waller's choice of who should leave the Squad makes little in-character sense and more of a pull from DC's editors and publishers due to this character's current popularity. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Jun 30, 2017

    The direction of this book had me hyped when it began. It would fill me with hope and excitement, and by the end would make a stupid turn that defies all logic. This one issue encapsulates that. Read Full Review
