    With this series, it really makes me grateful that someone like myself gets to not only review, but admire and learn the work of a creditable story teller Rob Williams. Read Full Review

    I wish I could heap loads of praise on the art, but I cant. Its good. Mostly. Sometimes very good. But thats about the best I can give it. This book needs a permanent art team. Read Full Review

    Its been a rough ride lately for Suicide Squad readers, but this arc looks to be a welcome return to form with the character dynamics back in line with expectations and another off the wall mission. Read Full Review

    Another solid issue, but deja vu is setting in. Read Full Review

    This issue brought a lot of perspective to the background of the Suicide Squad and showed many potentials. I gave this issue a high rating mainly because of the solid storyline. The rating could have been higher but the art was not the best. I know the artists could do better with detail. Overall, theres a bright future in this arc. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn and the Suicide Squad do somewhat boldly go where no sociopath has gone before. Suicide Squad #27 was a solid start with us mostly getting through a catch-up of the current status of the team, with some mild suspense towards the big reveal (for the team). In general this is a good jumping-on point for new readers as well since there's not too much to know about the arc before aside from Rick Flag being dead. Read Full Review

    So you wanna know the secret history of the Suicide Squad, huh? Well, you won't find out what it is in this issue, but you'll get some tantalizing clues and the reveal of some classic characters from DC's world of covert agencies. Which, considering how many there are, could be any from a thousand people. Read Full Review

    Williams returns to form with this chapter of Suicide Squad, and I couldn't be happier! This issue is high energy, a lot of fun, and contains quite a few laughs as well! It's nice to see the characters represented so well after an arc of questionable plots and decisions, but this turn makes everything feel right again. And if this wasn't exciting enough, Williams introduces us to a new mystery while teasing a number of characters! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 12, 2017

    This issue lacks the tight, purposeful presentation of that series, but Bagenda does at least give the issue a playful energy and balances out the superhero elements with a slight sci-fi flavor. Read Full Review

    While the issue is a fantastic opening to this new story, the art holds the comic back from being perfect. Read Full Review

    I'm probably a little too fussy, but I do like a certain level of consistency. While I would gladly give Rob Williams' efforts 10/10 almost every issue, comics must be judged on writing and art. Sadly, one half is far stronger than the other this time around. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Oct 13, 2017

    This story is a bit of a mixed bag, but there are some interesting ideas. The series has been very up and down and Im curious to see which way the next issue will go. Read Full Review

    Not a very strong issue at all. Writing could have been much better, and art was inconsistent with some panels being strange and not very well drawn. Hopefully the rest of the story arc will be better. Read Full Review
