    The artwork flows from that two artists on this issue. Everyone is nuts but at least it's readable and clean. I look forward to this title now. I never know what to expect issue to issue. But I always know that it will be completely bananas. Read Full Review

    Intense dialogue, art that is great from top to bottom, top notch action sequences all equal to the best Suicide Squad book I've read so far. Trust me you do not want to miss this one. Read Full Review

    Once again the artwork in this issue is the only thing stopping it from getting full marks out of ten. The artist changes halfway through the comic. With Philippe Briones drawing the first half and Hugo Petrus drawing the second. Both are obviously very capable artists. However, I feel that Briones' art style fits this issue a lot better than Petrus'. The art in the second half of the issue, unfortunately, lets the whole issue down. Read Full Review

    A strong issue, carrying the story forward, and leaving Batman and Deadshot in quite the cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 13, 2018

    The plot continues to thicken through the events of Suicide Squad #43. Batman and Deadshot don't see eye to eye about a lot of things, but these past two issues have been perfect for addressing what it means to put everything on the line for someone you care for most. Motivations were challenged, lines were crossed, and tensions reached a boiling point when there's so much to lose on all sides of this board. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steven Marin Jun 21, 2018

    The arc as a whole has been really interesting and evenly paced and issue #43 does a very good job of keeping you interested and invested in the dynamics of how everyone works together. This issue would have gotten a higher rating if I felt Harley was written with just a bit more finesse and understanding of mental illnesses. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #43 was not strong enough for me to onboard with it as one of my recurring pulls. But it remains an ongoing that I love popping into from time-to-time to check it out. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Jun 13, 2018

    However, though the first half is interesting and serious, a sudden switch in tone to a more light-hearted approach takes me out of the story and the stakes don't seem as high anymore. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 13, 2018

    A great-looking issue that is fun to read, but ultimately adds no progress to the overall story. Deadshot reveals his true feelings about Batman to us, which come as no surprise. This is a good singular issue, but feels like it's stalling the narrative for trade collecting's sake. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 14, 2018

    Suicide Squad #43 continues Batman and Deadshot's road trip, and at times it feels like it's three comics in one " and they're vastly different in terms of interest. Read Full Review

    Batman may be one of my all-time favorite characters, but there are times when even I think that his holier-than-thou need to play everything on hard setting wears think. Suicide Squad #43 is one of those times and, unfortunately, that leads this whole issue to feel over played and unnecessary. Read Full Review

    I did enjoy the read and hope the story telling continues to build and look forward to an epic conclusion however the book needs to go back to the team with the great stories that can be done with them. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jun 13, 2018

    The artwork was okay for this issue. Batman and Deadshot both looked good, while the Suicide Squad themselves seemed"off. Especially Harley. Her laughing face looked so plastic and didn't contain any of the emotion you'd expect for her. More like it's being done because it's expected than anything else. Everything else looked okay though, even the fighting, so that's something. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bob Moriarty Jun 15, 2018

    Deadshot and Batman are two of DCs most high profile characters and this story has been up until now highly enjoyable based solely on the writing. As the story slowed this issue, it brings attention to the fact that a bit more focus on the art might elevate this arc to greatness. But that gives us something to look forward to seeing improved, along with the fate of Zoe Lawton! Read Full Review

    This issue feels like filler to me, which is sort of annoying because I was actually kind of enjoying this arc. Read Full Review

    I honestly don't get critics on this one, I haven't really liked this book but I am enjoying this Deadshot and Batman team-up.

    Readable, but not much more. I can't say I disliked the issue, but it felt quite flat compared to its predecessors. While Deadshot and Batman's journey was fun to follow, appearance of Harley, Boomerang and Captain Cold felt like a step back, like a let down in many regards. Harl acted stupid instead of crazy, Boomerang used Australian idioms in, I believe, every sentence, and Captain Cold didn't really have anything to do and say. Personally, I feel like their only purpose was to act like all these annoying, always recurring cartoon villains, like Team R - every time being defeated, and coming back for more in the next episode, or issue in this case.
    Time and time again we see that Suicide Squad characters can be interesting, if they more
