    Suicide Squad #13 (@HopelessDent @rthompson1138 @edupansica Julio Ferreira @soydexterr) pumps up the action and intrigue as this chess match between Waller and multiverse continues! Read Full Review

    This mini-event is so far delivering as expected. With the Crime Syndicate divided, Flags Squad badly beaten and Waller fully enacting her plan, this war is making for an entertaining arc. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Mar 2, 2022

    Suicide Squad #13 oozes with fast-paced action. Although this issue's story is straightforward, Hopeless and Thompson build narrative tension by weaving moments of the past and present together. The result is an entertaining and often humorous read bolstered by excellent artwork. However, this structure is both this issue's greatest strength and its biggest weakness. It works best when driving the overarching plot forward; unfortunately, a few of the earlier sequences feel disconnected as they do little to drive "War for Earth-3" forward. Additionally, the rotating roster of artists throughout this issue creates a visual inconsistency that adds to this disjointed feeling. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #13 is a combination of great creators bringing elements from another title into their run whilst keeping their story on track. Sincerely, this is masterful work. Read Full Review

    So far, it's just been Suicide Squad without even any guest stars, and the event feel hasn't really kicked in yet. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #13 has the chaos of an invasion or war story with most of its protagonists concocting underdog schemes when they're not aiming simply to survive. There's a thrill to those proceedings, but it's also clear these events are driven by factor far beyond those characters and that the best they will do on the page is respond to an increasingly absurd plot.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 1, 2022

    While I've looked forward to the War For Earth-3 since it was announced and thought that the first part of our story was alright, this second chapter just left me wanting overall...... that is, except for the art... I loved the art in this issue but everything felt rushed here and I'm personally just looking for a story that wants me to enjoy the journey instead of just getting to the destination. Hopefully, that changes as we continue but this installment felt lacking. Read Full Review

    This was even better than the first part. I think it was more balanced, which is no doubt due to the smaller page count.

    A little bit rushed this issue. The changes of character personalties are weird... really weird. I mean, Power Ring wasnt that dumb and joker. Owlman too. Im not talking about differences between N52 version, im talking about the crime sindicate miniseries.
    Anyways, still waiting for the participation of the titans or flash.
    At this point im wondering if this story was pitched for more than 5 issues

    a solid issue. Good art too, but the characters are a bit iffy. This Owlman is different from Geoff Johns Owlman.

    I totally didn't bother getting part one because, I really didn't feel like spending more on a low end "event". I feel like I got what I needed from this issue. It's fun. Nothing special.

    Dennis Hopeless has brought this book down. Still love you Robbie Thompson. You too Eduardo & Dexter; ya'll need to get put on bigger books because you definitely have the talent.

    I've read this whole run of Suicide Squad and this issue was just not good.

    The Before/Now/Before/Now/Before/Now structure was especially pointless and did nothing but make the story a slog to get through. Each time I saw another time hop, I just steamed to myself "What? Again!" Is this supposed to make a bad story more interesting?

    The writing is different enough that it must be that Dennis Hopeless actually wrote it, not Robbie Thompson. He is writing #14 and #15 solo, so I think he basically took over now. And then #15 is the final issue. So I'm going to assume Thompson plotted out the general idea of what happens, and Hopeless did the script with all the time hops. Maybe Thompson only signed on to write 12 issues, more
