    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Erin Schramm Aug 25, 2017

    Suicide Squad has had a shaky run in Rebirth with questionable leadership. From Waller's obvious issues, Harcourt's deception, Rick's death and Harley's succession as team leader " what the team needs is some solid issues of the team taking up leadership or an outside source stepping in and cleaning up the mess that is upper management.

    So I really ought to have enjoyed this story more. I wanted to. Was it the art, then, that was the problem? Perhaps it was. I simply didnt feel like I was reading a continuation of the previous issue. It jarred me so much I just never got my grounding enough to have fun. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 23, 2017

    Allegiances are broken, new alliances are formed, and few jokes are bandied about in this solid issue of Suicide Squad. There's still the problem of each character having something to do in every issue, but there is some forward movement on the story and a reveal that makes continued reading worthwhile. Plus: Batman! Who could ask for more? Read Full Review

    A good issue, but not a great one like the previous two were. Still, this is the most fun Suicide Squad has been in a while and hope they keep up the exciting pace. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 23, 2017

    In short, things in Suicide Squad #24 are transformative and shocking, in all the right ways, and even the thought that it'll all get overturned by the next writer and/or the inevitable movie sequel don't change that fact that this is a solid, tense, well-executed story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Aug 24, 2017

    There are many solid moments in this issue, but where there are highs, there are also lows. Williams turns "Kill Your Darlings" on its head with this issue, and I genuinely hope that it is the first step in returning to the quality we've come to expect. He's set up a number of arcs though, and I have a sinking suspicion that what's left of them will be rushed through. Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    The irony? I still think that this is one of the highlights of Rebirth. Better not let me down with issue 25 is all I'm saying. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Aug 23, 2017

    While the ending has me interested in the next issue, everything in this issue was lacking to some degree; the writing and plotting is slow, there's an art change near the end of the issue, and it falls into the same formula the series has been falling into. Read Full Review

    "Kill Your Darlings" is ostensibly a very character-driven story arc, but it's not terribly successful in that regard. Read Full Review

    This issue had some problems, but if you can get past the awful artwork, its a pretty decent story. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Grey Somnium Sep 22, 2017

    I am at a loss for words with how upsetting this issue was. Suicide Squad has suffered since the announcement of the movie and increasingly so since it's release. The characters are nearly frozen, reverting to a base state after each arc. I expected better with the powerful lead up issues, but got handed a bag full of worst-case resolutions. Read Full Review
