Spinning out of the events of Titans: Beast World comes the story of Dreamer--the precog dream-walker who has run afoul of the most power-hungry villain in DCU history. With a super-powered hero who can see the future on her side, is Waller's Suicide Squad finally unstoppable? Join Harley Quinn, Bizarro, Clock King, Black Alice, and Deadeye for the fight for DC's future...and the next big step toward the cataclysmic event of 2024!

    Still, as a continued spotlight for Dreamer and especially as a series debut for Maines, it's a very strong start. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 12, 2024

    Suicide Squad: Dream Team #1 is a good start to a different kind of Suicide Squad team. The dynamics between the few characters that interact are compelling while Dreamer's further inclusion in DC Comics is exciting as hell. Read Full Review

    The Aspiring Kryptonian - David Beasley Mar 12, 2024

    Although the art is dynamic, it could sometimes feel too busy or distracting, especially in some of the more somber moments of the story.Honestly, my expectations weren't too high going into this book but found myself thoroughly engaged the entire time.The real take away is the impressiveness of Nicole Maines writing. Some of these characters aren't the easiest to capture on their own, let alone in an ensemble cast, and she absolutely nails it. I'm genuinely intrigued where this series is headed. Read Full Review

    Nerd Initiative - Mickey Smith Mar 12, 2024

    This first half of this issue was super heavy on dialogue and backstory. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be a bit hard to get through. Once we get the squad on their mission the pacing picks up and things seem to flow easier. I thing this book has some great potential going forward. Once things get complicated and the squad members start diverting from their main objective, it's gonna get fun. I say it's worth picking up issue two to see a little more of how the story unfolds!

    Dark Knight News - Philip Clark Mar 14, 2024

    Suicide Squad: Dream Team #1 delivers a very solid start to the series. We get new characters, a new mission and the same old Amanda Waller. Things look very promising, and I'm really looking forward to more. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 19, 2024

    The drama is well-crafted, the art is pretty amazing, and all in all, this could be the launching point for Dreamer as a major player in the DCU, providing that they can keep this up. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Mar 12, 2024

    This is considerably more engaging visually than narratively. Dreamers fans will find a lot to like in this issue and, based on the way this is set up, probably the whole series. Beyond that, though, Suicide Squad Dream Team #1 is a weak issue. In terms of telling or even setting up a story it accomplishes very little. At best, this is a first issue that offers potential because it delivers on little else. Read Full Review

    Suicide Squad: Dream Team #1 balances an exposition-heavy introduction with a curious collection of B-list characters and some intriguing layouts. Read Full Review

    This is a solid start to a new Suicide Squad series. A limited series that is. The dynamics between the characters are written very well in my opinion. Harley Quinn was written better here than in her current series and Birds of Prey (BoP is also a decently good series). It's nice to also see characters that have been sidelined make a return like Black Alice and Clock King.

    I believe this series will play out well considering its 4 issues leading into the summer event.

    I didn't have incredibly high expectations for this book when it was announced, but I have to say that I thought this was a pretty solid start. My relatively lower expectations aren't meant as an insult. I just don't think I've read much, if anything at all, from either Maines or Barrows. This is far from a perfect book, but I think Maines did a fairly nice job here. I especially enjoyed the interaction between Dreamer and Amanda before the mission began.
