    A straightforward story with some excellent action sequences and lot of beautiful artwork and character interaction, this issue of Suicide Squad felt very strong to me and was totally entertaining. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #29 takes us into the most crucial part of this story arc. There was action, exploration, and plenty of intrigue to take from just knowing that a team like the Suicide Squad of the 1950s existed. They may not be all that they are expected to be in person, but the history behind them is cool nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Nov 10, 2017

    The creation of the Suicide Squad is clearly much more complicated than we first imagined. Rob Williams and his collaborators are really creating a "Secret Origin" type tale here, and so far it's a winner. I am intrigued and eager to read more. The cliffhangers that regularly end these issues help with this, and the fact that we have two stories with evil endings to deal with don't hurt either. This issue is strong! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Nov 9, 2017

    Suicide Squad #29 isn't without its faults, but it is a fun book to read! Williams is reverting back to his approach that made Suicide Squad a fun and engaging story to read at the launch of Rebirth. If there is one downfall here, it's Barnaby Bagenda's art. Other than that, this issue is well worth your time and money. Read Full Review

    While the art and action carry this chapter, the story itself has slowed to a crawl. Read Full Review

    So far the clues in the issue gives a lot away for the future issues of this particular arc. You never know though, we may get surprised. This issue was a lot better than the previous one. It had more action and kept my interest. The Artwork needs a lot of work, except for covers, which are outstanding. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 8, 2017

    There's some fun times in this issue and some terrifically-rendered action scenes, but the shocking conclusion was evident from jump. This will all read better in the collected version, so hang out and wait for that. Read Full Review

    It would help if the series could maintain a better and more consistent visual standard. Barnaby Bagenda returns in this chapter, but his work is noticeable looser and less refined than in his previous issue. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Nov 10, 2017

    This is an uneven story with some fun, movie inspired moments. I feel like this book is at its best when its just letting the team go off on an adventure, but that it gets bogged down in making sure it stays true to being a Suicide Squad story. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Nov 8, 2017

    The more lose and fluid art style that Begenda prefers works decently here, though in truth I would have liked to see more definition in the character's faces. A lot of details are lost in their expressions if they're not in the forefront, which considering this happens a lot during large action scenes is a shame. Read Full Review

    This comic continues to be nonsensical in its writing as characters make stupid decision after stupid decision. With an added bonus of the plot twist that's used so often it could hardly be called a twist anymore and art that looks like someone was a little too inspired by what Dark Knight 2 accomplished. I thought it was a chore to get through this and that made the many, many flaws ever more noticeable.

    This was a solid issue. Like most of the recent issues though, it has been good, but not great. I see the art is still not the best either, but is getting better. I really like the secret origin concept and it has been a lot of fun. Can not wait to see next issue!
