By N. Durham HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on August 12, 2012
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 liked it! Very much of a Dirty Dozen feel to it. Except with super villains. Love DC's take on the zombies. Lots of violence and blood. I have been skipping mainstream comics for the past several years. I am now slowly catching up via these collections (most notable the Arkham Batman collections).

The recent Suicide Squad movie trailer (with the Queen song playing in the background) has got very interested into checking out this series again. Liked Vol I so much I have already ordered Vol II and can't wait. As soon as Vol II comes in I will order Vol III and so on.

Besides getting the skinny on the genesis of the Suicide Squad, you also get to see the back story behind Harley and the Joker. The art is stellar and there is a darkness to this tale that has me hooked. I am not a comic book persona and know little about the depths existing in Marvel and DC. I am not brand loyal to either, and simply enjoy the story. Plus...I am a BIG Harley fan. This is some dark stuff. Not many laughs, so it will be interesting to see what Hollywood does to it.

The first volume of the collected Suicide Squad comics throbs with a grimdark view on the four-color world of DC superheroes. The gloves are off; our anti-heroes are a Dirty Dozen of leftover villains on death row who have bombs in their necks and disavow-able missions. This frees up writer Adam Glass to pretty much do whatever he wants to our protagonists, starting with the worst kinds of torture and spiraling from there.

The squad features Black Spider (DC's murderous version of Spider-Man, apparently), Deadshot (a guy who wears a skintight costume and an impractical mask that doesn't protect him from gas attacks), El Diablo (a gang leader covered in tattoos that unleash fiery blasts), King Shark (a giant, man-eating, humanoid shark), Harley Quinn (a stripperific version of Harley inspired by her video game portrayal), and Voltaic (shoots lightning).

Leading this team is the slimmed down, glammed-up Amanda Waller. Given that Amanda's nickname was "The Wall" the change is disappointing -- Amanda has been replaced with a younger, svelte model type who mostly communicates by threatening to blow the team's heads off. She's low on witty banter and doesn't even get any good one-liners in.

The team's makeup is curious. Deadshot, with the most military experience, makes sense as the leader. King Shark is pure muscle, the tank of the group. El Diablo and Voltaic are blasters, which can come in handy. Black Spider qualifies as the sneaky type, which leaves a question mark over Harley. She's practically impossible to disguise (King Shark is too, but the trade-off is understandable). Her lone contribution is running around with a hugely impractical hammer. And oh yeah, she's nucking futs.
