"Suicide Squad" is like Marvel's "Thunderbolts", a team of baddies who're put together and sent on dangerous missions. They even share similar plot points such as nanite bombs implanted inside each team member set to detonate unless they do what they're told. There's also a Hydra-like organisation included, calling themselves Basilisk, saluting and shouting "Hail Basilisk", ready to kill themselves at a moment's notice.

I recognised a couple of squad members, the Joker's squeeze Harley Quinn (along with her awesome mallet) and another member of Batman's Rogues Gallery, Deadshot (looking very Boba Fett), but the others were new to me - King Shark, Captain Boomerang, Diablo, Black Spider. In this first book we see them head into a stadium full of zombies while avoiding kill squads sent out to collect bounties on the villains' heads. Also Harley finds out what's happened to her puddin' Mistah J from another "New 52" book.

The book feels a little light as we only really get to know Harley and Deadshot, the other characters remain somewhat obscure. It's always great to see Harley and she takes centre stage in the strongest part of the book, the final third. This part also ties into "Batman: Faces of Death", so check that out before this to get the full story.

The story felt a bit weak, the team didn't really gel, and the characters were underdeveloped. The missions weren't very satisfying and it's unclear where this series is headed - do they just keep going on random missions indefinitely? Harley saved it but there are at least 5 other characters on the squad who are dead weight - she can't carry the book or series alone. "Kicked in the Teeth" isn't bad but it definitely needs a more ambitious story arc and a better writer too for it to become a great series.

I was really disappointed when Gail Simone's brilliant team of super-villains Secret Six wasn't to be part of DC's New 52 but I have to state that the new Suicide Squad has gone a long way to easing those feelings.

For newbies, the Squad is basically a team of super-villains doing dirty jobs for the government in return for time off their prison sentences -if they survive. The core team (for this first volume) consists of Deadshot (assassin for hire and team leader), King Shark (a sort of humanoid hammerhead shark with an appetite that's not for fish), Harley Quinn (the Joker's squeeze), El Diablo (old name, new character), and several others.

For those who've been around for a while, you'll be surprised to find that Amanda Waller (the government agent in overall charge) no longer resembles a short weightlifter but has been transformed into Halle Berry (no complaints there) who has a significant other in her life (husband, wife, child, other, we don't find out this time around). Deadshot is pretty much the same bar a new mask. El Diablo, while still Mexican-American, is a villain seeking redemption. And Harley Quinn (whose new secret origin is revealed) is just plain scary. There's even an appearance by mostly long-forgotten non-powered vigilante Mad Dog. And King Shark may be more than just an appetite on legs. You'll have to find out about the others for yourselves. Trust me, it's worth it.

Writer Adam Glass does a very good job of keeping up the action/extreme violence while piling on the twists and surprises while managing to give the characters room to breathe. Several artists are involved but if it was up to me I'd give the job full time to Clayton Henry who channels Brian Bolland extremely-lite.

Yet another success for DC's New 52 line. I'm really enjoying this revamp.

As a newcomer to the Suicide Squad, I have recently had my interest piqued by their inclusion in the Arrow TV series and the announcement that they will soon be getting their own big screen outing.
So what to expect? This is the collection of issues 1-7 from the DC's new 52 comics for a government black ops team know as the Suicide Squad. It sees various incarcerated super villains trying to lower their sentence time by doing Uncle Sam's dirty work. Within the squad is a fantastic line up of characters, from such superstars as Harley Quinn and Deadshot, to the bizarre Captain Boomerang and King Shark. This unlikely team band/are forced via tiny bombs implanted in their necks together, JLA style, to tackle great threats. However, unlike the good old JLA, these guys don't think twice about a good double cross or collateral damage.
Packed full of great dialogue with whip sharp humour, all rendered in glorious artwork, this is definitely a series to get on board with.

I've never read Suicide Squad before, though I remember nearly getting back in about 87 when a re-launch happened and it looked very good.

I saw this collection on sale for the Kindle and decided to give it a go. I'm glad I did, it's one of the most fun, action packed and enjoyable collections I've read in ages.

I wouldn't say there is anything too challenging here, it is just sheer fun and full of action. Well worth a look.

What a great read! I have always thought the Suicide Squad was a great concept from DC. Villians working for the goverment, performing almost suicidal missions, and in return they have some time on their jail sentences shaved off. And this book demonstrated; what a great concept it truly is. This book has loads and loads of action. Their is plenty of smart well written dialogue. The book also has a good amount of comedy in it, as well as having twists and turns at every corner. The characters, all have their chance to shine too. This comic was such a good read, I am definitely buying volume 2.
