"THE SECRET HISTORY OF TASK FORCE X" part two! Strapped to a rocket, sent into orbit and dumped unceremoniously into a decrepit old satellite floating hundreds of miles above the earth, things have never seemed worse for the Suicide Squad-at least until they're set upon by an incredibly deadly alien monster. Yeah, that's worse. But at the heart of the mysterious space station hides a pair of long-lost DC characters ready to shake Task Force X to its very foundation.

    Suicide Squad #28 opened us up to what he hope is the truth to this secret Task Force X. Solid character moments and build-up to what will be an intense confrontation with whatever put them in such a desperate situation to call for help. Overall you want to believe this story because it opens a door to the history of the DC Universe that you couldn't haven't done any other way. Read Full Review

    This was a solid, well written issue, with art more to this veteran reader's tastes. It was a satisfying read, and kept my interest from start to finish. Read Full Review

    The Secret History of Task Force X is getting the book back on track. With some art consistency, it will be back to its original Rebirth debut level. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 4, 2018

    Perhaps it is simply that, for me, Suicide Squad needs at least a touch of politics. This story, more than most in the current run, has ample opportunity for opening that door. Weve got secret government conspiracies leading back to the 50s. That is ripe territory for political commentary. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 26, 2017

    We learn quite a bit of information in this issue, but don't make much progress concerning the plot. The combination of the abundance of exposition, questionable characterization, and lack of fulfilling action or story make Suicide Squad #28 a rather boring read. It's not bad, just boring.

    Comic Watch - Kasandra Miranda Oct 31, 2017

    Really boring issue, with way too much unnecessary information. A cut back is needed on dialogue. Hopefully, next issue picks up speed and brings back a more interesting Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 25, 2017

    A lame, aimless issue that moves one team from a space station to their certain doom. Ho-hum. They are called the Suicide Squad, after all. Some nice artwork, but a boring issue to read. Read Full Review

    It's past time DC established a more consistent look and feel for this series and prevented the seesawing quality that's been a problem from issue #1. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Oct 27, 2017

    There are some nice touches in this story that play in the early history of the DCU, but ultimately the story would have benefited from fleshing out the main plot. Well see where this goes next issue. Read Full Review

    The art is pretty bad in this issue. Overall, the main thing stopping me from this getting a better grade. I still like the story unlike what others are thinking about the current arc. It has mystery, some action and some good intrigue. Hopefully it closes on a nice note.
