Well, gee, I kept complaining and complaining about a lack of politics in this book, and Rob Williams opens this issue by having Trump send The Wall into Canada to take out potential terrorists, without the knowledge or consent of the Canadian government. I got what I asked for, big time.
The Wall has been around for a couple of issues, but becomes much more important in this outing. That makes sense, as the rest of the team has fractured badly, and have little interest in doing anything Amanda Waller will ask of them, after she tried to kill them all.
I keep waiting for some revelation to connect the Wall with the Blackhawks. His last name is Prohaska, which is the same last name that Blackhawk had. They must be related.
I’m really not quite sure which direction the book is heading in right now. The team has fallen apart to the degree that there could easily be a big line-up change. The line up has remained unusually stable for a Suicide Squad book, and some changes would not be unwelcome.
Tom Derenick does a very good job with the art, his aerial scenes, with the Wall and the fighter jets, look great.
The story does seem to go by awfully quickly, though. Seems like we are just getting down to the good stuff when it’s abruptly over.
