    Furthermore, the ways in which Deadshot's "power" is shown on the page is one of the most effective uses of a marksman in superhero comics in some time. It's a thrilling moment filled with threads of sadness and anger, all of which stem from a tragic reality that this colorful confrontation reflects. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jul 28, 2020

    When I look back at Suicide Squad #7 it stands out to me as an impactful moment for a character I barely knew half a year ago, but has quickly come to mean a lot to me. With this storys ending, I look forward to where the journey takes him, and the rest of the Squad next. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jul 29, 2020

    Suicide Squad #7 provides us with a John Wick-esque story centered around Deadshot. There's a disgruntled protagonist who wants to throw his dangerous life away in an effort to spend more time with his family, a shaggy head of hair and even a cute little dog. Nothing could go wrong, right? Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Jul 30, 2020

    Suicide Squad #7 is by far the strongest issue of this new run. The smart thing Taylor and team did here was to make us actually have the time to care about Zoe Lawton. She is essentially a mythological creature at this point. When we finally see her, and all that she is and all that she can be, we finally feel the empathy for Floyd that has been missing for years. I like this. I am not sure how I feel about what is coming, but this issue, is perfect. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jul 29, 2020

    This story is well done. It is a new direction that I haven't seen before in a Suicide Squad comic. The story is a blast and the art is well done. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 28, 2020

    This = is going to go down as one of the greatest Suicide Squad runs ever. It never loses sight of the humanity in its characters and it whatever happens feels important to the characters, the scene, and the book itself. Read Full Review

    Tom Taylor delivers a master class in tension in an issue that focuses almost entirely on Deadshot"only a short time, as we know, before the character seemingly meets his end. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 27, 2020

    Suicide Squad is a book that everyone needs to put on their pull list.  Why?  Because I like it and want it to keep going.  Yea, I'm selfish like that, but it comes from a place of love.  This issue has good art, genuine feelings, and moments when you will pump your fist in the air.  Don't believe me?  Then I dare you to buy it and prove me wrong!

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 29, 2020

    Some bonds just can't be broken. If there's one thing to love most about this run of Suicide Squad, it is the fact that this creative team chose genuine storytelling over everything which could have easily turned out superficial. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 29, 2020

    Tom Taylor and team continue to prove that Suicide Squad is the book to read at DC Comics! Packed full of strong characterization, action, plot twists, and emotional beats galore, this is easily one of the most balanced and engaging books hitting shelves right now. This issue, in particular, is a heartfelt gem that focuses on Deadshot and the person who is his reason for existence, his daughter. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Jul 29, 2020

    Daniel Sampere does an excellent job with the art throughout this issue. The fight sequence with Deadshot was beautifully rendered and full of action. The panel progress is awesome and the characters and action are full of detail. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Jul 28, 2020

    DC Comics' Suicide Squad #7 might be a change in pace, but it's the perfect intro to Deadshot's family life. We're no longer talking in hypotheticals here. We know what Deadshot is risking every time he heads out with Task Force X. This quiet issue (for this series, there's still plenty of fighting) brilliantly raises the stakes. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Fay Clark Jul 30, 2020

    My take away form this is… I've missed out of six amazing issues of this run. Also, the next issue some true problems are going to arise for anyone that stands in Lawton's way. The Suicide Squad seem to have their work cut out for them, trying to help Deadshot and keep themselves out of danger. Yeah… that's likely. Read Full Review

    "Suicide Squad" #7 is a strong deconstruction of Floyd Lawton as a hero and father. Read Full Review
