Bloodsport’s first mission with the Squad goes pear-shaped as the Crime Syndicate captures Amanda Waller’s agent on Earth-3. By sending in a team to bring Bloodsport home, Waller may also be able to extract another Suicide Squad member for her new team, if she plays her cards right and doesn’t care who else she loses in the process. As part of the team heads into the Multiverse, Peacemaker gets a new assignment to track down and eliminate Levi Kamei-the new Swamp Thing!

    This good looking issue is filled with intense action sequences. The bold color work matches the story's energetic tone. And the detailed illustrations add an emotional depth to the character's actions. I found this chapter to be very engaging and transportive. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Aug 4, 2021

    Sprinkling more details for the series' ongoing Superboy mystery,Suicide Squad #6grabs readers' attention by asking just as many questions as it answers. The surprising reveal on this issue's final page has me clamoring for more from the creators.Unfortunately, the switch between these protagonists causes the narrative to gloss over specific details. As a result, there is a disjointed feeling between this book and the previous entry Bloodsport's conclusion feels rushed. Despite an excellent artistic team, the artwork does add to this disjointed feeling due to some noticeable differences in the creators' styles. Read Full Review

    This issue was good. Like REALLY good. I'm praying this marks a turning point for the book because if so, I'm going to be hanging off those cliffs every month. I cannot wait for issue 8. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 3, 2021

    While Suicide Squad continues to be fun and divvies out enough mystery and intrigue to keep me wanting more, I can't help but feel that I wish we were getting a little bit more substance in the majority of the book because while I love Earth-3 and the idea of Superboy fighting Ultraman, there wasn't a lot to it overall. Thankfully the art is amazing, the cliffhanger is fantastic and there are enough smaller moments that keep a smile on my face throughout the issue. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 18, 2021

    The issue isn't quite as strong as what's come before, but it works to push the storyline forward and offers an intriguing set-up for the next issue with not one but two Superboys with questions about each other. The Swamp Thing storyline remains largely a tease, but Waller's discovery of Earth-3 suggests an entire new world of recruits for her to choose from. Read Full Review
