    And, as with the previous two issues, the Suicide Squad Black story is so much fun its worth the price of the book alone. Read Full Review

    Phillipe Briones also draws a great book! His version of Katana may even be definitive. I wish the whole issue featured this story. It certainly does well to merit that. Read Full Review

    For me its a privilege to read Mike Barr ‘s take on Katana's struggles on the other side of The Soultaker. I can wait to see how the rest of the arc fleshes this out. However the real winner for me is Suicide Squad Black and El Diablo's progression as a leader, its very refreshing to see a different squad and get a better look at lesser used DC characters.

    Both stories are readable, but the former has more hooks to bring me back. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 9, 2019

    A couple of middle-of-the-road stories with some silly comics tropes, makes for a decently-passed hour. You're not likely to get this much entertainment at this cover price in most other books. Read Full Review

    Their are two sides too every coin, while most coins are neutral some in the DC Universe have good and bad sides, this comic was exactly that, a good and bad comic. I do still recommenced this book for Katana's story and the hope that El Diablo flame will reignite and set a blaze a new path for him and his team. Read Full Review

    This story, by Suicide Squad co-creator Mike W. Barr, reads like a solid but unspectacular story from the '80s or early '90s. Read Full Review

    I don't really know why this miniseries exists. Neither story here is interesting or worth reading about. This series is such an incredible bore. The Katanna story never does anything cool. It's turned into a generic body swap story. Who decided this story needed to be told? Nothing interesting or fun happens in this story and I'm so incredibly fed up with it. The El Diablo story is just the villain's backstory and I swear, I went into this issue without remembering a single thing about this story besides that El Diablo was writing to Killer Frost. I have no clue what's going on in this story and I can't be bothered to try to find out. I don't want to know. This miniseries is so goddamn boring and I legitimately hate it. It makes me angry j more
