    Shock and Awe ends with a significant cliffhanger that could have major repercussions for one team member. This is all I need in my Suicide Squad reads so this issue hit the mark on all front for me. Read Full Review

    I always seem to be complaining about this book. And yet I do enjoy it, and look forward to each issue. I guess its one of those cases in which something is very good, but could be better, and you just keep hoping for it to be perfect. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 11, 2018

    Suicide Squad #39 cranked the dial at a time when we needed this creative team to the most. As close as we have gotten to these characters, you have to push some boundaries if they are to live up to the name of Suicide Squad. This issue created that reminder that no one is safe and that is the best feeling to have putting down this book. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #38 is finally starting to connect the dots it's been plotting out over the last handful of issues and while the story still has some pacing issues, this issue packs some serious punches to the gut while somehow managing to insert a little bit of sharp humor. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Clark Apr 13, 2018

    With a new issue, comes yet another artist. Neil Edwards adds his unique art style to this issue. The action panels in this comic are brilliant. I'd just like to see an artist be given a decent run on this title. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Apr 13, 2018

    This is definitely a step up in quality. It's an entertaining comic, action-packed, and it is structured in such a way that it gets more and more intense. Unfortunately, at the point where the climax is supposed to be, it sort of peters out in my opinion. But with entertaining banter, a strong and charismatic Rick Flag, and solid artwork, I think you will still have a good time with this issue. It's not a home-run yet, but it's definitely not as bad as the series has been recently. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Apr 11, 2018

    The artwork for this issue was pretty decent, though it was odd at times. June/Enchantress' expressions in particular I found to be a little bit jarring. They went a little past manic, if you ask me. Some of the expressions on other characters were also a bit odd, but June's were the ones that stood out the most to me. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Apr 13, 2018

    This is a fairly solid issue in a mediocre storyline. It seemed like the book was headed for a creative change with the No Justice relaunch coming next month but that doesnt appear to be the case. Ill be interested to see if this book turns a corner once this storyline is done. At the very least Batman will be guest starring on the title in May. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 11, 2018

    This books runs in place for an issue, so you can skip it and hop on the next one, unless that remains in a holding pattern. You know what? Just get the trade collection if you're hell-bent to read this stuff, though frankly I wouldn't go out of my way. Read Full Review

    This book has just created a band of nasty people fighting other nasty people, and that's not particularly entertaining to read. Read Full Review

    I am dropping all DC titles after their current arcs. Just an economic choice and I like DC the least. Unfortunately, this will be the book I miss after next issue. The series started off so well and after Suicide Squad vs Justice League it somewhat lost its fire. I've always found it enjoyable though and this last arc is a solid way for me to end. IT's probably the most entertaining arc in a while.

    The daughter in danger angle is interesting but the setup/battle to get there felt too lopsided and/or contrived to get there. June, Croc, and Deady will probably end up fine sooner than later. And poor Harley didn't have any worthwhile lines.

    Suicide Squad plays safe - there's the main cast of characters who we know won't get hurt. Sure, some of them may lose a limb or be desintegrated into dust, apart from their feet, but you can count they'll be fine and reappear in the near future. That approach, however, doesn't really serve the series well, considering the eponymous Suicide Squad is by design a disposible brigade. Imagine my pleasant surprise when Enchantress was, all of a sudden, sent to hell. It was not only unexpected, but most importantly had some emotional weight. Her relationship with Killer Croc may have not been the deepest one, but quite frankly, it was the only one in the series - and it's good to know it wasn't just a joke of sorts.
    I'm generally positive about this issue. It has drama, it has some humor (some of Harley's jokes landed, which was rather uncommon in recent months), and it overall felt okay as a comic. I'd say it was good enough to give it a pass, abeit don't expect anything groundbreaking.

    This issue wasn't terrible. It wasn't good either. It was slightly more exciting and that's a lot for this series. I recently started going back to read the Ostrander Suicide Squad run and, although I'm not far, I still feel more invested in those characters than I do with these characters that I've been reading about for 39 issues. That should say something about this series.
