A DARK NIGHTS: METAL tie-in! "GOTHAM RESISTANCE" part three! With realms dominated by twisted visions of Firefly, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Scarecrow and Bane stretched out as far as the eye can see, the chances of saving Gotham City from the incursion of the Dark Multiverse are next to impossible. Which sounds like a job for the SUICIDE SQUAD! Harley Quinn, the most unlikely of team leaders, must use her special ops experience to command a charge of heavy metal heroes into their deadliest adventure yet!

    A surprise cameo closes out the issue, and sets up the finale, in the next issue of Green Arrow. The cameo really was a genuine surprise, and a welcome one, so I wont spoil it for you! Read Full Review

    More than any DC series of late, Suicide Squad has been a showcase for how much the art can impact the overall impact of a series. The most recent story arc struggled in large part because of the significant dip in visual quality compared to previous stories. But with Stpejan Sejic briefly hopping on board again, suddenly it feels like a whole new Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 27, 2017

    The best development this issue was the payoff for a Resistance subplot and the return of a greatly missed DC character. Green Arrow wraps things up and it should be fun to see Benjamin Percy concluding the tie-in he started on Teen Titans. Read Full Review

    Whilst I was very impressed with the way Rob Williams handled this crossover, I do sympathise with the readers who only buy this book. I am well ensconced into the whole Metal event, but realise that not all fans want to be, or can afford to be. The writing and art on this issue are top notch, full marks quality to a fan who's had access to the whole picture. With this in mind, I give the third chapter of Gotham Resistance: Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #26 may be a bad issue of Suicide Squad but it's a good continuation of the Gotham Resistance story-line and the Dark Knights Metal saga. Great characterization paired with amazing illustrations makes for one hell of a read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Andrew Wheeler Sep 27, 2017

    Suicide Squad #26 is definitely a step up from the last two DC Metal tie-in issues. It's got more than enough action and some touching moments on top of that. It moves fast at times and the main antagonist is outshined, but in the end it's all worth it. Definitely not one to miss out on. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 29, 2017

    For a tie-in issue that has spanned across three books so far, I really enjoyed Suicide Squad #26“Gotham Resistance Part Three” for what it is. Sure I am not 100% sure what is going on, but Rob Williams made it a fun read and Sjepan Sejic's art was great to look at. If you want the whole story you will have to read the conclusion next week in Green Arrow #32. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Sep 27, 2017

    Rob Williams delivers a solid chapter of "Gotham Resistance" that balances a number of plots and characters quite well! There's humor, action, suspense, and heart, all of which are accompanied by Sejic's impeccable art. There are some low parts in the issue and arcing story " mainly stemming from a lack of knowledge concerning the Batman Who Laughs and his pet Robins " but I ultimately find this to be a redeeming read if you're already invested in Metal and all of its tie-ins.

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Sep 29, 2017

    Much like with most crossover events, I find that this issue, and Gotham Resistance as a whole, cant be judged as an issue of the series it takes place in, be it Suicide Squad or anything else. This issue improves on the previous two issues of Gotham Resistance and Im looking forward to the story continuing in Green Arrow. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Sep 27, 2017

    "Gotham Resistance" continues, and our team of heroes are drawn ever-deeper into that crazy mountain hovering above Gotham City. This isn't such a Suicide Squad-specific issue, and the change-up in roster feels pretty good. We learn a few things relating directly to Dark Nights: Metal, which might be a bummer if you're not reading that series, but there's also Stjepan Sejic's artwork in here, so that should lift your spirits.

    I personally wouldn't recommend this crossover unless you've been reading Nightwing. Otherwise, stick to the main event or the one-shots. However, the issue was fun and the art was great. Read Full Review

    A fast-paced, dynamic tale that nonetheless provides sobering insight and development for some of the characters involved. Read Full Review
