Kill or Be Killed
New Suicide Squad Vol. 4: Kill Anything - Tim Seeley,Juan Ferreyra

This was a pretty good conclusion to this run of Suicide Squad. It's very frenetic and wild. It's hard to keep up with what's going on. Waller fans will like this volume because she gets to show how badass she is in the field. I wish I remembered more, since it's been forever since I read this. If you want to read modern Suicide Squad, then this is pretty decent, but I preferred the previous series.

Edited since this morning: I remember this. It involves a cult of death, and that was a pretty cool idea. Lots of crazy types stuck in a castle, trying to kill each other. Now that I think about it, this is my favorite in this run.

Pro tip: Don't wait three months to write a book review.

Overall rating: 4.25/5.0 stars.

Neat little AU
Suicide Squad (2016-) #26 - Rob Williams,Stjepan Sejic

It ties into Dark Knights/Dark Metal, aka another huge crossover event that I am not reading.   So all I know is that Poison Ivy is crazier than usual, and going after Harley, and it makes for some fun banter. 

 

Also, Batman miiiight be dead, or at least corrupted?  I dunno?   

 

I still had so much fun with the AUs of Ivy and everyone that it was a five-star read for me.

Really wish there was more Deadshot
Suicide Squad (2016-) #25 - Rob Williams,Eddy Barrows,Eber Ferreira,Adriano Lucas,Giuseppe Cafaro

I'm finding him an... underused character in this, at least as of late, and it's disappointing.   I still find him one of the most dynamic character on this team and the fact that Killer Croc is in love with June Moon doesn't really make up for that, despite the fact that how that relationship will play out is fascinating to me as well. 

 

Still, nice to see this storyline wrapped up.   It was feeling just slightly drawn out and I'm annoyed at that in King's Batman already, which has dropped down to my the comic that I look forward to the least thanks to his overly extended storyline - a storyline that doesn't hold half the nuance or depth that his run on Vision did, so I'm also annoyed at that.   Which means that the other DC titles have been less appealing to me because I'm jaded by one of my favorite authors letting me down on one of DC's biggest titles.

Loving this series again!
Suicide Squad (2016-) #24 - Rob Williams,Eddy Barrows,Eber Ferreira,Adriano Lucas,Agustin Padilla

This is one that has highs and lows for me: I thought it had to go somewhere more quickly at one point, but when it's at it's paranoiac best, it really just works.   It gets super creepy, all the while explaining why Waller is acting so out of character, furthering Katana's character, and pulling the Suicide Squad together as a team again. 

 

Yay!

 

Also, some epic Batman fighting Killer Croc here.

My co-worker warned me this went downhilll
Justice League vs. Suicide Squad (2016-2017) - Joshua Williamson,Rob Williams,Tim Seeley,Jason Fabok,Riley Rossmo,Tony Daniel,Jesus Merino,Fernando Pasarin,Robson Rocha,Howard Porter,Giuseppe Cafaro,Christian Duce

I liked the first issue, but not enough to pay like four or five bucks for every issue.   (And then I'd have to buy the Justice League tie-ins, too.)   Also, I think said co-worker was right: this went downhill.   It because a convoluted mess with an unsatisfactory ending. 

 

Perhaps if they'd done some solid character work, but they didn't do that, either. 

 

The art was pretty, though, and the Killer Croc fight against Aquaman was funny.  I also didn't hate it.   Most of this made sense up until it didn't, up until it became a sprawling mass of why is this happening?

 

Glad it's over!
