"SQUAD ON TRIAL" starts here! When Amanda Waller awakens in prison, brain bomb implanted in her head in an ironic twist, there's only one man who can save her-but does Rick Flag WANT to? Even if Rick could climb out of the whiskey bottle he's hiding in, swimming in guilt for allowing his former teammates to die, why would he save Waller, when the Task Force X mastermind might be responsible for those very teammates' deaths? All this while Killer Croc contemplates if life is even worth living...

    Another brilliant part one of what looks to be set up for a fascinating run that may shake the foundations ofSuicide Squad even further, and oh my gosh… what a cliff hanger of ending! Read Full Review

    Issue 50 is coming up. That would be the perfect time to make some big changes. So I remain in hope. But its not so tragic, when the stories are fully enjoyable anyway. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #48 starts us off with a bold new direction for the team. Williams loves putting this team through the ringer, and has no problem making sure that everyone faces some obstacle directly or indirectly. "Rocket to Russia" will be a memorable story depending on the choices and reveals to be made as it continues. Read Full Review

    Rocket to Russia has a fun setup playing off of arcs Williams previously established. It's a nice call back to other adventures Williams has taken the team through his run. With the built-in mystery I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out. Read Full Review

    Williams writes a great first chapter that is is solid. His work is always at its best when he's not going crazy writing a shared storyline. The art is decent as well. I'm interested to see how this resolves itself. This is pretty good thus far. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Nov 14, 2018

    Rob Williams is in exemplary form with Suicide Squad #48 as he nails the team dynamic and character's dialogue. Unfortunately, some of the characters' facial expressions can be jarring for the reader. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad is at its best when Amanda is treated as the villain and while that's not exactly the case here -- someone is clearly behind her sudden misfortune -- it's just enough to remind readers that there is still humanity in the members of Task Force X, probably more than Amanda Waller ever had.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 14, 2018

    Nearing the end of this...sixth? volume of Suicide Squad, we get a shmear of some of the same lame stuff we had before. I heard they couldn't get Enchantress back to do the finale because she felt the series had damaged her brand. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 15, 2018

    It's a tense issue, yeah, but a lot of the story feels built around the overly villainized characterization of Waller that's been a problem for this series since the first issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Nov 18, 2018

    You've come this far and you just want to complete Williams's runYou really dislike Waller In my opinion this is a very lackluster issue. There's a lot of action, there's some intrigue, there are a few character moments, but none of it offers anything new to the Suicide Squad narrative. As such it feels rather stiff, like the comic is just going from story beat to story beat because it has to, and not because it has an incredibly exciting story to tell. I'm afraid I cannot really recommend this issue. Perhaps wait and see if the story picks up with the next installment, or just spend your hard-earned money on other comics. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Christian Ruiz Nov 17, 2018

    Theirs really not much to say about this one, its bland and disappointing. Suicide Squad has a long history of being the other comic, the one the outsiders read who don't want the mainstream heroes, for those that connect with the rag tag bunch and its sad to see the final stories in a long lineage of great stories. I hope it will return and when it does with a brand new direction that sets it apart from what we are seeing now, bland set ups to glorified one shots with climatic ends. The book has so much potential and in the future i hope its realized. Read Full Review
