This issue, it’s the shocking death of Deadshot! The man who never misses has been on the front lines of Task Force X since its inception-bomb in his neck, gun in his hand. He’s seen teammates blow up and countries fall. He’s faced down heroes and villains alike. Now the Suicide Squad has one final mission: bring down the man who enslaved them, then put a bounty on their heads when they escaped: Ted Kord. But to finish the job, the world’s deadliest assassin will have to do the one thing he’s never done for the cause: die!

    The big reveal is a terrific payoff and one that might answer my lone gripe with the series. That will likely get addressed next issue as Taylor and Redondo end this one with a massive cliffhanger that will change everything for the squad. Except for the quality of this book that is. That never changes and remains one of the best titles DC is putting out this year. Read Full Review

    This issue is another big winner in what's quickly turning out to be one of DC's best books, and I'm excited to see where Taylor plans to take these characters after the curtain drops " he's surely onto bigger things. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 23, 2020

    And just like that, this creative team broke the one rule of Suicide Squad that we hold sacred. Issue #9 went there, but made it a moment to remember. Though one death only leads to many more questions about what comes next, because a character like Deadshot as he is now, does not get offed without a proper response to the act. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 22, 2020

    Tom Taylor promised this would be an important issue and delivers on that promise.  There are still some big things going on in this book with two issues left, but what happens in this book is huge.  It's a quick read that looks great and shouldn't be missed by fans of this series.

    Suicide Squad #9 is a solid read that begins to wrap things up for Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo's run. There are some truly shocking moments in the issue, and it's honestly a shame that DC couldn't just let fans experience it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Sep 28, 2020

    Suicide Squad #9 has quite the ending. There is no doubt that I will be back for more even though this story is uneven. With only two issues left before the series ends, there are a lot of loose ends for Taylor to tie up. I do think I have an amazing idea for a spin off series with a new, younger person in the Deadshot gear. I wonder if that is where this is going. Read Full Review
