    The Suicide Squad – albeit with different lineups – show up at the end of both stories, only with different intentions. I can't wait to see what the next issue has in store for us. Read Full Review

    I really want to like Katana's story, I truly do, but with the exception of the cool action sequences there's nothing that draws me in. Deadshot's might not have those action sequences yet, but the character development and personal vendetta really carry the book. Both stories do have fantastic art, and cliffhanger endings that promise some crazy shiz going to happen next issue, but for now, this series just took a step down. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this issue is somewhat forgettable. The Deadshot works for it's backstory and there is great art in the Katana story but it's a dull issue overall. I recommend waiting for trade on this one. Read Full Review

    The Deadshot story continues to carry this book with a solid story, strong character development and fantastic art. While it's mostly flashback it'll resonate for those looking to understand the character a little bit more. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of Katana, or curious to learn more about her due to the characters upcoming role in the new Suicide Squad movie, or perhaps even the television show Arrow, please avoid this book! It'll leave a bad taste in your mouth. Instead, check out the first volume of Birds of Prey or Geoff John's Justice League of America. I also recommend picking up Outsiders (pre New 52).

    Yeah...I really like both stories here so far, they both do a good job portraying the characters as psychologically complicated figures, and both stories are interesting. If I have any complaints, I wish they didn't insert the Suicide Squad into Katana's story, since I was enjoying it as a solo adventure for her.

    If this were just the Deadshot story, this would probably be a 9. I always get nervous when origin stories are tinkered with, but in this case...Wow. This is as heavy a story as you tend to get outside the Vertigo branch of DC. I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing where Buccellato takes the Deadshot half of this story. Unfortunately there's a second half to this book, and even worse it's the first half, which means people who pick this up from the shelf and start reading may well end up putting it back without ever getting to the good bit. I'm completely unfamiliar with pre-New52 Katana, but I get the impression she hasn't been done justice from then 'til now and that doesn't look like it'll change with this series.
