    Furthermore, the ingenuity of the issue doesnt stop there. Readers get a somewhat comical issue filled with reasonable action, clever twists, and a true unveiling of Wallers motives that become clear as SUICIDE SQUAD #8 comes to a close. Read Full Review

    The issue is stellar on the artistic front as well, with Eduardo Pansica, Dexter Soy, and Marcelo Maiolo delivering big action sequences with key quieter moments amidst all the chaos. Coupled with the last page reveal, Suicide Squad just upped the ante and managed to hook me all over again. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #8 has some of the best fourth-wall-breaking captions you'll read all year, clever ideas at work that make the superhero action feel new, and a hell of a cliffhanger ending. Suicide Squad continues to have the chaotic energy and ridiculously over-the-top characters we love wrapped up in a package that takes plenty of chances. Read Full Review

    This is a seriously crazy issue. Even if Ambush Bug's narration does drone on at times, the humor works and despite the number if irons in the fire including governments coming after Waller, Rick Flag putting together his own team, the machinations of Talon, and now Peacemaker unleashed, Suicide Squad #8 works as a good start for new readers and a nice summary to catch the rest of us up on everything the current volume of the title has going. Let the craziness continue. Read Full Review

    There are so many points of tension in this title that could be the tipping point for a crisis. The ensemble cast is only growing and we can expect the tension to build over the coming issues, so I'm eager to see how this team of characters will handle it, but I have every faith in this skilled creative team to pull off something incredible.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 19, 2021

    While I continue to love the art and the characters involved with our main Suicide Squad, the all over the place nature of the storytelling and the goofy way of telling and recapping the previous story through Ambush Bug leave me wanting simpler stories because at the beginning of this series it was one of my favorite books and over the last couple of months it just feels like it's falling into silly territory.
