4.0 out of 5 stars Secrets and lies and origins 22 Jan. 2015
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The story running through issues #20-23 of DC Comics’ New 52 Suicide Squad title is collected, along with Detective Comics #23.2 and Justice League of America #7.1, as Suicide Squad Volume 4: Discipline and Punish TP (The New 52). This is an excellent episode in the ongoing series, in which another ‘new’ team is prepared and field-tested. There is a new member of the team in the command centre - who advises Waller on the mental states of her agents (and is obviously up to something); though he manages to stop a full-on prison break and mutiny by some of the old team. Then there is a confusing story set in Vegas, which is one of those flashback/forward stories that starts in the middle, followed by a story involving the infiltration (or invasion, if you prefer) of a Third World dictatorship that is being helped by an old colleague of Waller’s from Team 7. The volume is concluded by two secret origin stories, of Harley and Deadshot, which are triggered by the Forever Evil HC (The New 52) event, which has left Belle Reve in ruins and Waller in need of rescue.

As with so many New 52 titles which suffer from the game of musical writers, last issue’s cliffhanger ending does not seem to be mentioned here, but apart from that, this is a very good episode in the ongoing series, as character motivation is an important part of the storyline, and things don’t just happen because the plot requires it. The writer is putting effort into these stories, and the artwork is also of a suitably high quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Consistent, entertaining but not my favourite. 26 July 2014
Format:Paperback
As always Suicide squad is well drawn, descriptive and reasonably action packed. I once again fell in love with Harley Quinn and her spunky quips and it was an interesting concept to see the Suicide Squad’s progression from being submissive to Amanda Waller; to beating Waller herself into submission.

James Gordon Junior’s issues with the Mother complex and reading someone actually wanting to refer to Waller as ‘Mother’, was creepy and left a bad taste in my mouth. No doubt this was how it was meant to feel and it’s great that a graphic novel can produce such a strong emotion. It would be interesting to know how other readers reacted to it.

One thing in this volume, which I particularly disliked was the over-use of captions, such as ‘DEADSHOT. SHOOTS THINGS’. At first they were reasonably useful, a re-cap of who’s who, then with the introduction of James Gordon Junior and Cheetah they were snippets of potential back-story to flesh them out as characters, but after that they were unnecessary, irritating and a little ridiculous. Each subsequently unnecessary caption felt like a poor attempt at humour that, spoilt an otherwise entertaining page.

Getting several more detailed backstories was fantastic, it had to happen before the series is closed and it has been a long time coming. However I did feel that the inclusion of so many, made it particularly difficult to follow the plot as it became a little bit of a mish-mash.

I enjoyed the sudden appearance of Cheetah as she is fascinating as a character. One of the exciting things I take from these graphic novels is that you never know who might show up, who might get their head blown up and who might be (repeatedly) resurrected!

5.0 out of 5 stars consistently excellent 6 Jun. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This has to been one of the best and most consistent of the New 52 books. Playing off the back of Sinister Six ( probably the most consistent book pre New 52) the characters are developing nicely and the storylines are just outrageously anarchic.

Ales Kot has grasped the raison d'etre of the series and has produced some of the best individual issues the series has seen.

The interaction between the characters is very well handled. Unlike the previous reviewer I found the second half of the book a distraction from the tone set and hope that volume 5 goes back to looking at the Squad as a team- where the individual characters interact- which is where the spirit of the series flows from.
