I am really enjoying the work of Williams, Pansica, and Ferreira on Suicide Squad right now. The storylines are strong, and the art is powerful, emotive and very effective. Makes for a really fun read.
There are also some difficult choices for the characters to make. Kobra is on the loose once more, and Deadshot’s daughter has been kidnapped. Batman decides that his old enemy is worth the effort it takes to break in and free him, and the risk of bringing him along.
There is a little more development with Katana. Frankly, any development with her character is a plus, as she too often is just silent but deadly. And Amanda Waller is once again forced into making decisions when things just won’t go her way.
A new member is brought onto the team in the final page, one who ought to be a worthy addition to the line-up. It’s a familiar character, and one who has worked with the Squad before, long ago. I’m kind of surprised that they hadn’t been brought in as a regular member before now.
Kobra has faced the Squad on more than one occasion, and makes an excellent opponent for the team. Not only does he have an army of fanatics at his command, but Kobra is a master schemer and manipulator, the perfect parallel for Amanda Waller herself.
All the signs look promising for this to be a tense and exciting storyline.
