    Si Spurrier has sky-rocketed himself to a writer that I look forward to reading more of. I sincerely hope that Fernando Pasarrn and Oclair Albert stay on this story as the artwork they have produced in this comic fits Spurrier's writing perfectly. This is a must read if you want a fresh new look at the narrative of a comic and the standard tropes that can be found in comic books. Read Full Review

    Exciting first issue in an arc that'll draw you in with a new character who is in way over his head. And just might lose it! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 10, 2018

    After a run of big stories, its nice to have more of a cool down two-parter that casts the Suicide Squad in an appropriate light. Im looking forward to seeing how Spurrier wraps this up story and how he handles a character on Suicide Squad worth rooting for. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jan 10, 2018

    Who the hell is Juan Soria? It's been some time since I picked up a Suicide Squad comic book and I'm glad that this is the one that I decided to read. Suicide Squad (2016-) #33 is entertaining and light and everything that one looks for in a Suicide Squad comic; it's well-written and well-illustrated and overall makes for an enjoyable read.

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 21, 2018

    The rest of the Squad are shown, but largely from the mans perspective, and only have small roles in the tale. Still, most of them get good moments along the way, and Spurrier looks like he has a good sense of how to handle them. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 10, 2018

    Suicide Squad #33 begins to answer the age-old question. If this is a Suicide Squad, where are these people actually being expendable? Juan Soria serves as that lamb to the slaughter, and while it is funny for how doomed he was from the start, it goes without saying that you do feel some sympathy for this guy by the end. He dreamed big, he fell hard, and everything just went downhill from there. Credit when it is due that this creative team is actually willing to show this team as one full of villains.

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jan 10, 2018

    I absolutely love the way Juan's hand and abilities are illustrated here. The shade of blue used implies it's some sort of tech influence, and on the whole it looks pretty fantastic. I'll admit some of the expressions and close-ups of characters during this issue were a bit odd, bordering on off-putting (see Harley's face on page 10 for example). But if that's my biggest complaint that's not too bad, so I'll take it. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 12, 2018

    Suicide Squad #33 is easily the best issue of this series, as Si Spurrier steps on board for a two-part arc that turns out to be a dark, twisted issue that cuts to the core of just how horrific the Suicide Squad concept actually is. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 11, 2018

    This series really is a seesaw of quality, one whose fortunes really depend on the artist in question. Suicide Squad fared poorly in the previous story arc for that reason, but having Fernando Pasarin at the helm helps get this new story off to a strong start. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 10, 2018

    A whimsical story that teases something entirely unknown, a feeling that, while reading comics, seems rare to me. The story is interesting enough, and there are some pretty funny (and some quite gross) scenes, but the pacing is a little sluggish. Still, I have no idea what's going to happen next, and I love it!

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Jan 11, 2018

    If you are looking to jump onto Suicide Squad, I'd suggest waiting a while to see if the reviews become more positive in the future, because it seems like this is just an average, throwaway two-parter. Read Full Review

    Not sure if it deserves a part 2 but, this was a very enjoyable read from a unique perspective. Art has been getting better on this title.

    It's better than what I'm used to from this title, but it's not very good. Not even as original as it probably wants itself to be. But time will tell if things get interesting.

    The story doesn't dig deep into any character's life and personality, hanging somewhere in between having stable and "safe" cast, and havng somewhat disposable shells who aside from being cannon fodder, offer practically nothing. I truly had great time reading short retrospectives about each character couple of months ago, like Katana's tragic origin, or Captain Boomerang's dreams of being a spy, while in reality he was just a lonely kid. When it comes to simplistic, straight forward action stories, described and depicted in most issues of this run, they were a hit or miss to me.

    This particular issue doesn't have any outstanding moment that would me either laught out loud, or really emphatize with one of the characters. It wasn' more
