    The story does seem to go by awfully quickly, though. Seems like we are just getting down to the good stuff when its abruptly over. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #38 begins the story that is the product of what happens when the government has the power to be judge, jury, and executioner. We've seen what happens when others try to mimic their own version of the team, but The Wall is what happens when you take that step further towards absolute power. The only question was if they could do so and handle the control. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Jake Putnam Mar 31, 2018

    We see the capabilities of The Wall while he is being controlled by Rick Flag, only to have something go awry and have his control being usurped from his hands. We also find out that the team was not incinerated last issue. We do however find out that after the destruction of Belle Reve the team is disbanded and thrown to the four corners of the country. Only at the last minute do we find out that the country needs them more than they know. I love the cliffhanger at the end of this book and makes me yearning for more. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 28, 2018

    It's all about The Wall now, and that is to the peril of our national security! Though having criminals handle black ops for the government probably wasn't too safety-minded, either. This is a passable story that is interesting enough to grab you for another issue. Whether we face delight or regret remains to be seen.  Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Mar 28, 2018

    This was another issue that felt more like it was setting up than anything else. This issue established the weaknesses in the Wall, the Suicide Squad's fragile existence, and Hack's survival. The combination of all three is pretty messy, but that's not terribly surprising, considering who we're talking about. I feel like they're constantly increasing Hack's power levels and ability sets"which is both interesting and a tiny bit annoying (I'm not a fan of overpowered characters). Hopefully we've reached the cap of her abilities, but who knows. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #38 is a little predictable, but delivers more of a punch than its previous issue. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 29, 2018

    This issue shows that the title can take advantage of its unpredictable nature once in a while, and the foundations of a good issue are there " only to be completely undone by a nasty last-act plot twist that continues to destroy the legacy of a well-liked character. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Mar 30, 2018

    This is a really fast read and there's not much here to analyze, but sometimes that's all that's necessary in order to enjoy a story. However, with the high level of predictability, the story feels rather uninspired and it takes away from the entertainment value. Although the next issue could be a lot of fun due to the Squad's upcoming mission, I can't really recommend #38 based on its own merits, even if it sets up a potentially fun next chapter. This is an average comic at best. So my advice is to wait and see what the next review will be like. Read Full Review
