Well they are the bad guys.
Frankie D
The story felt a bit weak, the team didn't really gel, and the characters were underdeveloped.
Sam Quixote
A overall fun read, and I would and have, recommended this book to my friends.

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!

Originally written 7-26-13

A federal agent by the name of Amanda Waller assembles a team called the Suicide Squad. The team's purpose is to conduct covert missions that heroes may sometimes find to be appalling. The team is made up of super-villains serving out life sentences. Although these people have free reign to conduct the missions as brutal as they would like, they're still on a leash that reminds them there's still someone watching their every move. -summary

Suicide Squad was actually one of the series I was looking forward to as part of DC's New 52 reboot. I enjoyed a lot of the original series, plus I enjoyed Gail Simone's writing for Secret Six, which featured the character Deadshot whom makes his return in this series. The premise has always been intriguing, as we get a team of super-villains whom works very differently from the heroes. They're obviously going to do things that sets them apart from the blue and red boy scout types, which not only adds to the fun but adds another dynamic to how super-powered types working for the greater good can work. Written by Adam Glass, this rebooted and new incarnation of the Suicide Squad remains faithful to their predecessors as they live up to their title as anti-heroes; but I feel Glass and DC's decision in altering characters personalities and appearances along with predictable storytelling drops this one right under average. This TPB collects issues 1 - 7.

The story begins quite well after a tight situation for the group, as they're later sent on a mission to battle against something very similar to a possible zombie outbreak (gotta love those huh?) in a football stadium. Now the whole zombie outbreak thing is terribly played out in this day and age.

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.
