It turns out that all the Suicide Squad needed was a good writer at the helm.
Who would have thought it? Tom Taylor has a great take on all of these characters. I am having a great time reading this month to month. I have missed the edge on this title and Taylor has brought it back.
The book opens with Captain Boomerang in a bar getting drunk.
He then recounts a story of a mission he went on with the Suicide Squad. He is barely started with the story when Boomerang is attacked at the bar by unknown assailants. It is an awesome beginning.
I wish that we held onto this beginning just a little longer.
No matter. We are instantly moved over to another storyline involving the full team.
The issue then becomes a bit about Harley Quinn at this point. It was a jarring switch but the creative team made it work pretty well.
She starts to dig for information on her teammates. She gets closer than anyone thought possible. This leads to a hell of an ending that is rather shocking. Just when I started to get comfortable, Taylor pulled the rug out from under me.
And I completely loved that.
Tom Taylor ls an awesome writer.
I don’t think that he has hit his stride yet writing this book. But he will. This is another good issue. The characters are great and it is an adrenaline rush. I have a lot of fun reading it and it is the best that the Suicide Squad has been in quite awhile.
