The inmates who volunteered for the Blaze program are discovering fascinating things about their newfound powers-and about the best ways to torment their Suicide Squad watchdogs. Are they discovering anything about their core mission of stopping the cannibalistic metahuman who's terrorizing the planet and who, uh...might have just defeated Superman...? Well, slightly less so. But they're all going to be dead in three months. Or a lot less. Let them have fun, eh?

    Suicide Squad: Blaze #2 goes to show the magic made on John Constantine, Hellblazer was no fluke because the team behind these books are showing just how much brilliance can still be mined from DC Comics' many characters. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad: Blaze is amazingly dark fun. Si Spurrier, Aaron Campbell and Jordie Bellaire have found a way to turn one note characters into fun additions to a world and have created one of the more terrifyingly animalistic villains weve seen in a long time. This, quite possibly, might be one of the best Suicide Squad books I have ever read especially because of the amazing art and great storytelling. Read Full Review

    While the narrative has some hiccups, it's still a compelling read that benefits from having a genuinely terrifying antagonist mostly kept in the shadows. Read Full Review

    SUICIDE SQUAD: BLAZE #2 is raw, emotionally charged, gritty, and real. Deeper relationships are formed, unexpected characters are destroyed, and a creature of unexplainable carnage is unstoppably aroused yup aroused. There's subtle humor that doesn't always hit the mark alongside some confusing art at times. However, the story is complex, wickedly entertaining, and loads of fun. I'm still super pumped to see where this goes and think SUICIDE SQUAD: BLAZE #2 is a fantastic story for any comic fan, not just the SUICIDE SQUAD peeps. Read Full Review

    This was so fucking gnarly. Waiting until July for the final issue is going to be hard.

    The art is simply on another level, and I cant wait for the final issue in July. Much rather have delays and focus on quality.

    I think this book has a fantastic, unhinged energy to it that lends itself perfectly to both Black Label and the Suicide Squad. Spurrier manages to create some absolutely hilarious sequences, usually centered around Waller, as he writes a pitch perfect version of the character. From her 'rousing' war speeches to her demeaning tone in the debrief with an overly excited scientist, she had me laughing. Campbell also manages to create some brutal scenes as well, particularly around Superman, adding to the "no one is safe" feeling that the best Squad books always have.

    I truly have no idea how this is going to wrap up, and that alone has me excited.
