Admittedly, I'm not a big Suicide Squad fan. I think the New 52 Suicide Squad was shit. There was nothing slightly enjoyable about it to me. With hesitation, I tried this. The Rebirth stuff I've read hasn't been horrible. Some of it has been surprisingly good. I'm afraid I would have to say the same about this. This volume was surprisingly good. Good? Or not bad? There's a fine line between the two. But I did find myself enjoying it. There's still a lot of stuff I'm not hot on in it, but it was decent. I'd love to see Deadshot's look redesigned back to his pre-New 52 look. It's still dreadful. And I don't particularly care for this version of the Enchantress. But I do like that Amanda Waller is suddenly no longer Angela Bassett. She's got her heft back. This is my Amanda Waller. I'm intrigued by Katana being in this group. On the surface, I wasn't hot on Killer Croc being here, but there's always been a lot more to him than meets the eye. I'm willing to try another volume of this to see if this is a fluke or something that will be worthwhile to read.
