It's Task Force X's first mission as a brand-new team of blood enemies, and things have already gone horribly wrong! As Squad members start to turn on each other, the mission rapidly falls to pieces-but new team leader Lok will let no bad deed go unpunished. Who will take the fall? One thing's for sure: there will be hell to pay...

    The way you know that this series is a fun read is that even its slower, dialogue heavy moments are still a treat. You have to read this book if you're looking for something fresh in the DCU. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 26, 2020

    Redondos art is so well suited for this version of the team. Hes established the new characters strongly with some basic visual cues like the short burst speedster Jog actually has a beer gut while Deadly Six has a smooth air to him. Adriano Lucas color work is exceptional with terrific shading and blends. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Feb 26, 2020

    Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo deliver another stellar issue of Suicide Squad. The book is smartly written, incredibly engaging, and chock full of twists and turns that will keep you on your toes while also, somehow, continuing to hit personal, emotional beats as well. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Max Byrne Feb 27, 2020

    With the promise of a certain Aussie character returning in issue 4, the team is shaping up very nicely indeed. For a veteran title, the re-invigoration here has been tangible and Suicide Squad is certainly worthy of a seat at the top table. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Feb 26, 2020

    As did the Revolutionaries' decision to let Deadshot in so quickly. But that was another good call from Taylor. No need to have them battling with one another right now. It's not a fight we care about. That being said, they don't need to bring Harley Quinn in just yet. Her being confused would play well. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Feb 26, 2020

    This series of Suicide Squad has been a thrill ride. And, this installment keeps up that pace. The dynamic of the squad has never seen days like this. A civil war is brewing inside the group. That tension is creating a healthy dose of suspense. Calling this a powder keg is an understatement. This is a nuclear warhead falling from 2,000 feet and zooming closer to impact. The fallout is going to be quite a spectacle. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 26, 2020

    This is a book which keeps getting better and better. If you thought this was going to be too different from your average Suicide Squad book to jump in? Rest assured, you are investing in the same high-octane action, violence, and shock. Better yet, this is Suicide Squad which starts off on a better note than most with momentum and high stakes from the get-go. Suicide Squad #3 was a wake-up call as well that you should simply sit back and let this story unfold on its own. This creative team clearly has plans to flip the script on us when we least expect it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 26, 2020

    Tom Taylor continues showing off his new characters with a story that suddenly became more personal.  Bruno Redondo's art is excellent, and there is a mystery brewing about what this Suicide Squad is.  I liked it, I am just waiting to love it, but unfortunately, I'll have to wait a little bit longer.

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Feb 26, 2020

    It has been a solid few opening issues for sure, but with the bulk of the narrative now seemingly hinging on new Waller Lok a character who has shown himself to be blindingly one-dimensional to this point it remains to be seen whether Taylor can keep this books head above water as its run continues. Either way, Im definitely going to be sticking around for at least a few more issues to see how this all plays out. Read Full Review

    There is a saying about too many cooks in the kitchen ruining the meal. Well, that is on full display in Suicide Squad #3. Seriously, I am not sure what is going on, who is in charge or why I should care. The charm of the Squad is that they band together not fight it out with each other. Sure, there is tension, but tension can be played upon. This is not that and it just doesn't work. It is only issue 3 in a new run, so I will give it a chance. Considering the Boomerang is coming back next issue, I feel good. Read Full Review
