    Suicide Squad is rolling along nicely with the teams changeover and the escalating war against Waller, who probably needs to sleep with one eye open around this version of the Squad. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue is a throwaway, and it could have been better. Ah, well. Read Full Review
