Suicide Squad #36 Review

Things looked bad for Amanda Waller in the last issue of Suicide Squad, and everything just gets worse in this one. But worse in the best possible way, at least as far as the readers are concerned.

Hack is back and out for blood. The story neatly recaps her role from earlier in the run. I suspect Rob Williams had her return planned right from the get go, because this issue makes so much more out of her character, and her abilities. I liked Hack when she was just a wanna-be Harley Quinn, but now she is on par with the deadlier members of the team.

The art, by Pansica and Ferreira, is exceptional. They move so deftly between Hack’s digital world and the gritty reality of Belle Reve, and both are more powerful and effective from the contrast.

King Faraday looks to be a regular member of the team now, and he makes a good addition, connecting the team to its Cold War past.

While I eternally bemoan the lack of politics in this comic (and am running against the current current by doing so), I have to admit that this story was so well paced, and so much fun, that I didn’t feel anything lacking.

A really fun issue, building to a great cliffhanger ending.

Rating: 9.5 /10
