Probably my favourite issue yet!
Lots of laughs and a great story line.
It was a great continuation of the early rebirth suicide squad (issue 2 I believe).

Boomerang is the best thing about this series and this was the best story in the series

9.0

the art took a BIG DIVE and the story was a bit of a let-down, but at least not in the one big way that so many writers would have done. Gabby is fine, and that's about all this issue needed to do.

from a base of 6, this gets a rating of: 9.
-1 because: the art was distractingly bad.
-1 because there was too much stupid humor.
-1 because: it was confusing.
+1 becaus more

Good stuff.

Barry keeps it funny, you can tell he's fun to draw and write.
Two stories are happening at the same time; one looks like a slow burn mystery while the other looks like a "welcome-chosen-one" that will begin a new plot soon. I'm still waiting for a wow factor but the scenery and lovable characters will keep me coming back until then

8.0

It's very solid but honestly skippable.
It raises the stakes and tells a cool story about one of the side characters that you've probably been wondering about. The art is wispy and fits well with Donny Cates' love of deserts and Texas imagery.
This is nearing the longest run Cates has ever written (I don't think his work with Marvel has gone past ten issues, and Redneck is about as long more

A very strong ending ... For one I would have loved a more dramatic final with Laura dead too. I hoped that would not be victor the Doom, but that was still a great story. I'm not that fond of Bell ... But it's normal we didn't know here before.
I was very impressed by future thor.
It was the last Tyler issue. Thank you very much for all the work Mr Tyler. I take issue 1 just for trying more

8.5

If you didn't like the previous issue it’d probably be best to skip this one too. Slade continues to be a passive agent in his own story; between Slade, the Batmen, and (if you cross the boarder) Deadpool, “The Fall of _______” issues are becoming passé. More so this helplessness does not fit Slade; Dr. Isherwood puts it best when he says, “The best informed and most prepared assassin o more
