The government has once again handpicked the worst of the worst for its Task Force X. Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Katana and Killer Croc. All deadly criminals sent on the most dangerous missions possible by a government that wants them killed. But their newest challenge? A teammate so powerful that even this group of murderers and thieves can’t control. (Summary is taken from Goodreads)
I really like Suicide Squad as an idea. The whole Anti-Hero, Villians saving the day thing. I actually also liked the movie. It was not my favorite, but it was entertaining. So I was somewhat excited to read this. I didn’t leave totally disappointed, it actually was quite good.
I liked this comic. But don’t go into it and expect the best. Some things annoyed me from the get-go, but that had nothing to do with the story. Of well a little it did. I just really didn’t like Amanda Waller from the start. It made it even harder to read it. There were just so many different things about her I didn’t like, and it didn’t make it better that she is almost the main character in this comic.
A thing I really liked was that Obama is the president. So amazing. I also really liked Harley Quin. She is just so all over the place and weird. She is not afraid to speak her mind and be her usual weird self. She could have had more clothes on, but it’s a comic what can you do. The comic can be a little confusing at times. It’s all over the place, in a bad way, and the pacing is weird.
I really liked the art style in this. Kudos to all the different artist who worked on this.
Another thing I liked was the “Personnel Files” after the main story. It really gave you a better understanding of the characters you were reading about and why they ended where they did.
I will recommend this to people is more know in this world and really love Suicide Squad.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day! ♥
