    This beautiful issue is filled with detailed drawings and bold coloring. I found the panels to be eye-catching and enjoyable. The attention given to character expression and form create a deep emotional draw, and the action sequence were flawless. Read Full Review

    The interwoven design of SUICIDE SQUAD continues to deliver, however, the premise is certainly beginning to wear thin. Read Full Review

    I really thought this series was going to be a slog to review, but if we get more issues like this one, I'll read this forever. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad #9 mixes lots of themes and ideas without feeling stuffy or overly dense. Any level of reader can really take a lot from this title. Do you want a detailed power struggle between multiple layered characters? It's here. Do you want cosmic and gritty battles and classic comic book action? We get it. Do you want a revolving door of figures from DC that you've never heard of, ready to become regular favorites? This title truly has it all, and this quality makes me eager for more. Read Full Review

    It's not a patch on the inventive Tom Taylor run, but it's more intriguing than any of the Squad runs from the years before. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 16, 2021

    While I continue to love the characters being used and the progression in their relationships with one another, not to mention Amanda Waller's eventual day of reckoning when Rick Flag finally comes to town, the overall going to Oa plot was a bit of a wash for me and makes me wish that our Suicide Squad could do more than show up in other character's stories. That being said though, the art was great and Squad is still solid. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 23, 2021

    The reveal of the target of Waller's interest turns out to be a complete unknown, leaving the slow build-up without any immediate payoff. We do get plenty of dysfunctional team antics, some fun third-wall breakage by Ambush Bug, and an appearance by Sojourner Mullein, but it will be at least another month before we learn the reasoning behind Waller's big gamble. Waller's prize is creepy (in a Doctor Who kinda way), but what exactly is he? Read Full Review
