Format: Paperback
I wasn't looking forward to the new take on Suicide Squad honestly, not just because of all the backlash involving Harley Quinn's new scantily-clad costume and Amanda Waller looking like a supermodel, but just because I wasn't sure that anyone could come up with anything new involving the handful of hapless antiheroes that Gail Simone had handled so well before. Instead, writer Adam Glass injects a Dirty Dozen-type vibe into the comic and characters, giving us a brilliant takes on Deadshot and King Shark, and a surprisingly cool new origin for Harley as well. It's quick, kinetic action throughout, with solid artwork from Federico Dallocchio as well. All in all, this new take on the Suicide Squad is quite good, and deserves your attention.

This book contains the first seven issues of the New 52's Suicide Squad. I found it to be extremly entertaining and a fun read.
It is defenitly for adults, as there is some strong sexual situations, and this series is one of the more violent in the DC universe, with people getting eaten alive or ripped into two. Many people die in this series in amazingly terrible ways, I cant help but love it.
I felt this book is less about the actual missions, and more about the interactions between the squad. It takes a uber-mega-boss to get the Justice Leauge together, and then all the focus is on defeating the bad guy, but this series is more focused on the teams needs and personalities. I really liked getting to know more about Deadshot, and the relationship between Harley Quinn and the Joker (Chick is crazysauce!)
A overall fun read, and I would and have, recommended this book to my friends. Amazing art and a story full of twists and turns is a great combination!

Though I found the opening issue of Suicide Squad to be something of a guilty pleasure, I quickly found I wasn't alone in my tentative praise of the book. Though I didn't pick up the second issue, Suicide Squad`s reception was relatively positive, and when I learned that it was the first New 52 title to break the inevitable downward sales trend and action start selling up, despite not having any crossovers, I was interested to see what the book was all about. Suicide Squad: Kicked in the Teeth collects the first seven issues of the ongoing series, and seemed like a good place to start with the series.

And, you know what, I actually mostly enjoyed it.*

It has its problems, and they aren't small. Writer Adam Glass shows a huge improvement here over his Flashpoint: Legion of Doom miniseries, but he still needs to work on some basic areas like pacing, dialogue and general set-up/payoff plotting, all of which are, at various turns, fairly uneven throughout the title. For example, #2 ("When the Levee Breaks") has some terrible dialogue - "Zombies?!? I'm going to squeal! I love zombies!" - and the pacing is flawed, jumping from getting the mission to fighting hordes of faceless enemies, but it does set-up/payoff pretty well, getting Deadshot infected here, reminding us periodically over the next couple issues, and then finally bringing it back in a huge, climactic firefight.

But what Glass does VERY well is the conceptual stuff. You have six hours to kill an entire football stadium worth of infected, prevent the infection from spreading beyond the walls, and retrieve the cure. You have 20 minutes to put down a riot at Blackgate Prison before the bombs in your neck go out.

I love Harley Quinn; she was the best thing to come out of the Batman Animated Series. Something DC was smart enough to pick up on as they brought her into the comic world. As part of The New 52 reinvention, Harley returns in the Suicide Squad – supervillains coerced into working for the government with a promise of time off their sentences, and nanobombs in their necks. This is not your Golden Age comic and is definitely not for kids. This crazy premise is given FULL measure.

I expected the book to be edgy, but it is also gory, brutal and twisted as befitting these characters and their missions. The first mission involves a stadium of civilians infected with some kind of cyber zombie virus. The Squad is tasked with cleaning up the situation by killing everyone in the stadium! This is the sort of mission that no superhero would be willing to undertake. This book is overflowing with violence, but also has a heightened level of unpredictability. Characters die while the plot twists and turns without warning. It’s like a thrill ride.

During the first mission, Harley learns that the Joker is dead. He was skinned alive. Normally, she’s “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” as one character describes, but with this information she takes her insanity in a new direction. Along the way, readers get to see how she met and fell in love with her puddin’.

Overall, I really enjoyed this first volume of the series. The stories are exciting and don’t hold back. And though this is a team series, Harley is most certainly the star. And I like it that way. Highly recommended.

Whenever, the main character(s) of a story shift to the antagonist, it adds a new spin on things and makes the exposition much more interesting. Suicide Squad definitely lives up to this with its intricate and sometimes tension filled relations between members of the Suicide Squad. There is plenty of awesome action between the lead characters in this book I find being Dead Shot and Harley Quinn. Although this book is not without its faults which is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars; there are some moments in the book that seem a bit half done such as the Suicide Squad fighting zombie like creatures, I thought this was Suicide Squad, not the Walking Dead. In addition, while the aspect of the Suicide Squad members having bombs attached to their necks with a timer on it during missions to ensure completion in an exceptional time span is pretty awesome in that it makes for good story, there are some moments in the book that a time limit is not needed and Amanda Waller does not reset the timer for the squad which I find makes no sense. At this point however, I'm nit-picking, overall, this book is pretty good, it has its flaws but it was worth the buy most definitely.
