    Well paced, well written, and geuninely interesting, this issue may be the set up for a new adventure, but it's an adventure you definitely want to go on. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Soozee Carmichael May 11, 2018

    I really enjoyed this issue. And I'm excited to see where it's going. Unlike last weeks Waller show issue, this one has a lot of potential even though it doesn't seem as focused on the entire Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Clark May 9, 2018

    Suicide Squad has gone from strength to strength over the last few issues and Williams has produced yet another stellar comic. We see the return of Amanda Waller at her best; the cold-hearted woman we all know and love to hate, proving herself to, yet again, be unwavering in her convictions that, no matter what, Taskforce X are the worst of the worst and should be treated as such. Tensions are rising in the Squad's ranks and decisions are made in this issue that will certainly continue to have impact on the team further down the road. Read Full Review

    All the signs look promising for this to be a tense and exciting storyline. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 9, 2018

    This should be a pretty fun and out of the norm storyline for Suicide Squad. While at times the title has veered too far to the extreme, this one feels right in their wheelhouse. I'm looking forward to see what Williams has in store next issue. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 9, 2018

    Suicide Squad #41 starts us off on the right track with a new mission, and new stakes involved on all sides of this conflict. It was only a matter of time before Batman made his presence known again, and he did not fail to make an impact on those he encountered. At the same time, it was only a matter of time before Deadshot could be the center of attention again. For a guy who has been taking some losses as of late, this is a time where you want to see some real heroics and redemption. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt May 9, 2018

    This was an interesting start to a new plot. It's a good call to have the Suicide Squad split up for a bit; they're already down a member anyway, and changing the dynamics further should help shake loose any staleness they've gained. At least in theory. I like the idea of Batman and Deadshot working together here, and I think it's also showing the influences of the success from Dark Metal (we did hear that the influence from that was going to start bleeding over into other comics, so this makes sense). Suicide Squad has always tried to walk a darker line than many other DC series, so it'd be nice to see them let off the leash a bit here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Matt Granberry May 9, 2018

    All in all this is great beginning story of this arc, which I'm sure as we go, will be full of twists and turns along the way, but every story needs a good foundation and you've got one right here. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 10, 2018

    The twisted snake cultists are creepy, but the issue isn't very memorable until the second half, which is when Batman shows up and the action kicks into overdrive. Read Full Review

    I tried to convey as much fun as I had reading this issue in the review because it really was just that: good solid fun. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 9, 2018

    This issue sets the stage for an unlikely team-up that is revealed on the front cover. That team-up may come to something interesting, but this issue certainly didn't. Task Force X gaining a new member is probably the most exciting thing in the issue, and it happens on the last page. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies May 10, 2018

    Suicide Squad #41 may be a basic set-up that doesn't feel new, but it's a solid one that does an effective job at engaging readers' interests in the arc to come. Read Full Review

    This was surprisingly good for this run, looking forward to this team-up.

    There are some strenghts in this issue - few nice ideas, you know, having genuine potential if used correctly. Sadly, it also suffers from the same problems Suicide Squad usually has, which are forgettable stories, bland dialogues, inconsistent art, and generally underwhelming quality.
    It's readable, and who knows, this new arc may be better than last few, but I wasn't blown away with its opening by any means.
