    Overall, I found this chapter to be entertaining. But I wonder how necessary it was to the story as a whole. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - James Remolde Sep 9, 2021

    This is a confusing chapter and now we have more characters to add for the last part. Is this going to become a Squad versus Squad story with the A-Team versus the B-Team? Read Full Review

    It has some interesting ideas, but unfortunately it feels like it's just too in love with being able to do mature content and kneecaps itself. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Sep 7, 2021

    Suicide Squad: Get Joker #2 improves on the previous issue, but remains disappointing. Azzarello is brilliant at tension, and the suspense keeps the comic teetering on a knife-edge. The frustrating part of the issue is that he has all of the exceptional characters at his disposal yet has failed to use any of them to their full potential. There are some moments of brilliance and the art is superb, and there will be fans of Red Hood or the Joker that will find this comic enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Tonally, if you picked up the debut of The Suicide Squad: Get Joker then you should know whether or not this book, generally, is your cup of tea or not. Structurally, I wasn't overly impressed with this issue. Azzarello spends quite a bit of time focusing on character development, but there honestly isn't much time for that. Maleev's art is also hit and miss here " especially during the action sequences. With one issue left, I don't have much confidence that we'll get a strong finish to the title. Read Full Review

    Get Joker! is an uneven affair with a few notable highlights. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this. A lot of people don't seem to get what they were going for here. But I did and it was pretty good. As the second of a three part story it moves the characters well and gets you to see some of them in their natural state which a lot of books don't let you do, especially Suicide Squad books.

    These characters are all different ranges of douchebag, especially Wild Dog who is a Q Anon nut job who is written to be about as passively offensive as that one guy you know who always walks around wearing Confederate memorabilia, but even hes entertaining in a hate to watch sort of way.

    The test of the cast is pretty good too, with clear voices and different dispositions and goals. Putting them in a position wher more

    Not as good as the first issue but it was still a good read. Azzarello's dialogue was clunky in some spots. We don't know Waller's fate in this issue. Will we see her again? I can't believe that the teaser gave away the ending. Whoever wrote it at DC should know better.

    I know people are getting tired to seeing Harley and Joker piss-takes, but it goes full in on character dynamics. Especially between Jason and Harley on how they still feel Joker's bad influence on them. Meanwhile the other character interactions feel pretty nice like how Plastique and Mad Dog interact. Of course, I could've done without a summary spoiling what's supposed to be a surprise cliffhanger.

    This is collapsing, what seemed like a good idea in the wrong hands is not so good.

    This issue came off as confusing. While I liked the new Squad taking down Joker - I think the previous Squad being an interruption could've been held off for the second part of this series or something. I think too much was trying to be brought into one single issue.

    I am gonna say it. This issue is so weird that its insane. I dont think you need to read this book. It's not worth your time to be honest.

    This is a very weird book for sure. It has some awful stuff in it but it also has some good stuff. The awful stuff? Jason Todd wanting to give Joker a lap dance instead of Harley Quinn. WTF, Azzarello, are you more insane than the Joker? Because even he couldn't come up with that shit. Very cringey dialogue, a seemingly weird obsession against striptease bars, like they're some unforgivable shit or something. I don't know, I really don't know what's in this man's mind. On the other part, that last page was fire, the lineup is interesting. Jason Todd is written pretty good as a leader, too. Wild Dog is pretty cuckoo crazy but in a good way somehow. But I do feel that overall the bad outweighs the good.

    a little better than the previous one

    I want to retract what I said above, I literally needed to be high to think that this was good, I mean it literally since reading this from my phone a few hours after a surgery postponed by the covid was not very bright of me. This is bad, so bad that the dialogues of how bad it is laughs, well it does not resemble King or anything, but it is silly and simple.

    Joder he comprado esta historieta el día de hoy esperando a que mejorara pero esto esta mal, que en DC cuando hicieron los despidos también lanzaron por la puerta la creatividad, no hay un solo comic que valga leer y ahora esta chorrada con este tío que no escribe bien ni una que le amenacéis a punta de pistola.

    It is good to see that all the changes that DC made have results, yes, results of disasters, there is not a series that is worth it since they made the comabios, some are moderately decent but that is all.

    Mout was totally right here. I don't know why I gave Azzarello the benefit of the doubt. This is trashy and a slog to get through. I didn't enjoy it.

    I thought this story had an interesting premise from the first issue, but with this second issue things took an unexpected turn. I'm not against strip clubs or pole dances, believe me, but I also didn't need to see Harley Quinn doing one here. I don't know where this is going but it will be interesting to see how it ends!
