Loving this new team
Suicide Squad (2016-) #17 - Rob Williams,Tomeu Morey,Tony Daniel,Sandu Florea

And when I say 'new team' I mean they added a new team member, and boy, does he change the dynamics.   Not so much between the already established characters, but the dynamics of the team itself.   It doesn't just change it for the characters themselves, but for the reader as well: General Zod is not only a massive power player, but he brings a little bit of that 'fuck you' attitude as well.   The question is not if he will escape the Suicide Squad, but rather when.   Until then, Harley Quinn will most likely remain impressed by not only his willingness to jump into dangerous situations, and his instability, but his gusto.   He's not just willing to dive into a suicidal situation, but he relishes the chance - at least for his people.   It doesn't matter that everyone keeps telling him Kryptonians are dead, because he seems to be deluded into thinking they are not, or will somehow make a resurgence. 

 

And how can he help them if the Kryptonian bomb implanted in his head goes off?  Knowing this, he very reluctantly complies with Waller and her team, all the while letting everyone know just how reluctant he is.   

 

And I don't know why, but Tony Daniel's artwork is speaking to me more than Jim Lee's at least on this book.   Don't get me wrong, Lee is a true master of this art form, but I'm enjoying Daniel's artwork more, possibly because it feels less busy to me.   As intricate as Lee can go, it can distract me from the way the words and art work together.   This is something that I read hoping for a lot of action, and this feels  more streamlined artistically to me.   And that works better in this series.  I had no complaints while Lee was illustrating, and I would have none if he continued most likely.   It's only in retrospect that I see that this works better for me. 

 

As always, I'm looking forward to the next issue.

Suicide Squad Vol. 1: Trial by Fire - Luke McDonnell,John Ostrander

Suicide squad is my favourite comic team. Plenty of spunk and kaboom.

Nice little conclusion
DC Comics: Bombshells (2015-) #75 - Marguerite Bennett,Aneke

Having a nazi beg for mercy and heroes - fine, anti-heroes - laugh in his face and leave him in a paranormal mess on a sinking sub makes me happy.

Clearly, comics can be educational
DC Comics: Bombshells (2015-) #74 - Marguerite Bennett,Aneke

Bombshells #74 taught me to never fight my way into a nazi sub, because in addition to genocide, those motherfuckers were obsessed with paranormal shit.   And DC is just rife with that, y'know?   Even their AUs.   (Or it'll turn into a vampire clusterfuck like on Angel.)

 

I keep forgetting that they wanted to use magic and psychics to kill everybody.   So this is a good lesson to relearn every once in a while.

Bombshells, oh, yes!
DC Comics: Bombshells (2015-) #73 - Marguerite Bennett,Aneke

Women take the center stage.  Killer Croc gets in on the almost exclusively female Suicide Squad, who is tracking down Luc, Batgirl's lover who they thought was dead until they knew he wasn't.   

 

And it's fun times as they fight their way into a nazi sub, only to find Luc.   It's also nice that there are three issue story arcs, in general.   Because they're interconnected, but separated stories, it's a little easier to jump in later, or read about my favorite characters without being forced to read sixty-whatever issues before this.
