"Once a secret to even the highest government officials, the Suicide Squad has emerged from FOREVER EVIL as one of its most popular programs. Its mission: to send incarcerated super villains to carry out impossible missions on foreign soil in exchange for a commuted prison sentence. If they are caught or killed, no government could link these operatives back to the U.S. government. At least, that's the theory. This new series begins with a mission in Russia that features two red-hot Batman villains: Harley Quinn and Joker's Daughter, plus Deadshot, Deathstroke the Terminator, Black Manta and more"--… (more)

Vic Sage is replacing Amanda Waller as the person in charge of Suicide Squad and he also adds some new faces to the team like Deathstroke and Joker's Daughter. Of course everything that can go wrong goes wrong with all these changes...

A lot of action in this graphic novel. My favorite part is Harley Quinn taking the news of the new addition of Joker's Daughter to the team.

But then again she deals with it in her own way...

This volume was OK, but nothing really memorable beside Harley dealing with Joker's Daughter. I should probably have written the review right after I read it when the story was fresh in my memory. But alas, I never did, so much else to do beside writing this review apparently...

I do like the idea of Suicide Squad, collecting a bunch of villains and making them do high-risk black ops in exchange for commuted prison sentences. In many ways this is actually more fun than having heroes in groups like the Avengers since villains just don't follow rules (as one can see in this volume).

I'm looking forward to seeing what the team (and especially Harley) will take on in the next volume!

I received this copy from DC Comics through Edelweiss in return for an honest review!

I received this as an advanced reading copy from DC Comics through NetGalley, and I would like to first thank them for the opportunity to read this comic.

This is the first 'The New 52' DC comic that I've read, so I was actually a little bit lost. I think that is honestly mostly because I am used to novels, where you pick up book 1 and read from 1 to 3, or 7, or whatever. The comic book world, I've found works a little bit like this: 'Oh! number 27, 15, 8, 42, and 9! I haven't read any of these but know basically what happens! I must buy them!' That being said this was pretty easy to pick up on what was happening in them.

I just heard that there will be a Suicide Squad movie so I'm pretty excited about this! I think it was a great introduction to what the series (line?) is all about. I particularly loved Harley Quinn! The Joker's daughter was really interesting too, and it really makes me want to read some other comics about him!

The publishers requested that all reviews be held until publication, which it is now available! However, as I wasn't sure if these were all published together or not, I will not go into any plot specifics, but rest assured it was really good. The art was beautiful and I actually read the whole thing in just one sitting!

This seems like a really great place to start if you are looking to start comic books, but I'm no expert! I particularly love that there are not really any 'good guys' in this.

How do you all feel about gray area villains and heroes?

I really didn't love this. I enjoyed Harley getting angry over Joker's Daughter wearing his face, and especially liked her yelling over how Joker is the worst relationship she ever had. I don't care about the government guy at all. And I still long for the Amanda Waller of years ago, my badass short fat chick. [I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.] ( )

Soft reboot, new team members, internal conflict, brand new bad guys. All the hallmarks of an upcoming production termination . If only they'd hire Rob Liefeld we'd know cancellation was imminent. To bad, because it was actually pretty good. ( )

Review will be posted when the embargo is lifted on July 21, 2015. ( )
