With the chaos of Task Force X's first mission behind her, Dr. Harleen Quinzel launches a psychological investigation into the current residents of Belle Reve-and when the infamous Harley Quinn is worried about someone else's mental health, you know there's a problem! What does Deadshot know about the machinations of their deadly new teammates, the Revolutionaries? Who are the Revolutionaries, where did they come from, and why do they hate superheroes so much? Careful, Harley-sometimes when you dig too deep, the monsters come crawling out...

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 25, 2020

    Daniel Samperes art with Adriano Lucas colors makes for an impactful visual combination. Sampere is such a smooth storyteller and brings a true cinematic flair to the story. His art is deceptively simple that I barely realized the issue was almost over as I got so caught up into watching everything unfold. Lucas is so effective at setting the mood with dark reds and bright whites as well as Winks teleporting powers. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Mar 25, 2020

    Suicide Squad #4 dives deep into just who the Revolutionaries are and why they're in the Suicide Squad. Oh, and some Captain Boomerang too. Can't get enough of that guy. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad hasn't been this good in years. If you haven't been reading it, start now! Read Full Review

    The new Suicide Squad written by Tom Taylor continues to impress, managing to fold in familiar faces in exciting ways that continue to push the plot forward and enhance its new roster of expendables. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Max Byrne Mar 26, 2020

    Another high bar entry in this hugely entertaining title, Suicide Squad #4 is a hugely entertaining read. Action packed, fun and also poignant, the stage is set for issue #5 to give us ringside seats for one almighty scuffle. With the extremely welcome return of Boomer to the proceedings, everything feels energised and elevated. With so much uncertainty in the world at this time, it's good to know we can always rely on Task Force X to deliver the goods… and then some! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 25, 2020

    There are some great fight scenes in this issue, but it wouldn't work half as well without Taylor's always-excellent dialogue and subtly political writing. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Mar 25, 2020

    This was an expositional issue for this mystery-driven series. But this creative team even does that well. Even in the midst of backstory and answers, we can tell this is just a momentary dip in an otherwise stellar run. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Mar 25, 2020

    In the fourth issue of this thrilling series, we get some answers. The backstory and story development are weaved through a chill “road trip” format. This takes a break from the action while still feeling suspenseful. More is being told about the motivations of Osita and her rebels which makes their fight more compelling. And, the built-in tension of the group continues to be a factor. With this next mission having deep ties to Task Force X, I'm interested in what this entertaining series will show us next.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 25, 2020

    I am enjoying this run on Suicide Squad as we spend time learning about the new team as they globe-trot and take care of business.  It doesn't hurt that the "business" this issue is Captain Boomerang!  I hope more people give this book a try because it is already one of the better team books at DC right now.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 25, 2020

    Another exhilarating issue of Suicide Squad, though for different reasons than the usual. That is of course what you get from a creative team like this that knows how you give you a well-rounded story for an action book. Suicide Squad #4 was a good reminder that this Harley Quinn is not one to confuse with who she used to be outside of Task Force X. Nothing new to longtime readers, but leaning towards more substance goes a long way. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Mar 24, 2020

    That's not to say I expect Boomerang to walk away from this " though that would be an interesting twist. What I really wonder is, will Floyd be the one to pull the trigger? Or will he hesitate, thus leading to another controversy among the group? Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Mar 25, 2020

    I don't think that he has hit his stride yet writing this book. But he will. This is another good issue. The characters are great and it is an adrenaline rush. I have a lot of fun reading it and it is the best that the Suicide Squad has been in quite awhile. Read Full Review

    While Suicide Squad's larger story is getting itself set up, the characters are used superbly to make the issue more than just the sum of its plot. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 25, 2020

    This is a good issue thanks to a breakneck opening scene and a collection of key moments where characters need to make choices. There is a lot of standing around as Taylor and Sempere set things up, but it'll be interesting to see how this team further gels together. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 26, 2020

    When all is said and done, this is a solid issue, but it is very transitional. You need these moments in stories though, and while it may feel like a drop in quality for the issue itself, it will benefit the title as a whole when collected. I always welcome character development and have a much stronger appreciation for Osita and the Revolutionaries because of this issue. Then there's Captain Boomerang, who creates quite a bang with his return! Literally... Read Full Review

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

    The final pages deliver the showdown the issue had been building up to, and – very possibly – feature the death of yet another Squad member. After a strong introductory mission, Taylor is really starting to stamp his mark on this particular arc, and the more invested we become in these new faces, the harder its going to be to watch the inevitable happen (hey, we all know how this comic tends to go, right?). Either way, the series has the same blend of humour, drama and slightly over-the-top violence that has made these characters so damn enjoyable to read over the years, and Im definitely on board with this new run for the long haul. Well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Apr 1, 2020

    It could be that the first three issues of this new run represented Tom Taylor finding himself. This new run arc has a bit more promise. Of course, adding Digger back into the mix is always a great idea. I know I shouldn't feel this way, but he has always been my favorite Rogue and member of the Squad. I have hopes. Now that we have everything explained to us, maybe we can let this story unfold. Also, maybe we will lose a few characters. That could be good. Read Full Review
