New Suicide Squad Vol. 1: Pure Insanity

New Suicide Squad Vol. 1: Pure Insanity (The New 52) - Tbd, Sean Ryan

Vic Sage is replacing Amanda Waller as the person in charge of Suicide Squad and he also adds some new faces to the team like Deathstroke and Joker's Daughter. Of course everything that can go wrong goes wrong with all these changes...

A lot of action in this graphic novel. My favorite part is Harley Quinn taking the news of the new addition of Joker's Daughter to the team.



But then again she deals with it in her own way...



This volume was OK, but nothing really memorable beside Harley dealing with Joker's Daughter. I should probably have written the review right after I read it when the story was fresh in my memory. But alas, I never did, so much else to do beside writing this review apparently...

I do like the idea of Suicide Squad, collecting a bunch of villains and making them do high-risk black ops in exchange for commuted prison sentences. In many ways this is actually more fun than having heroes in groups like the Avengers since villains just don't follow rules (as one can see in this volume).

I'm looking forward to seeing what the team (and especially Harley) will take on in the next volume!


I received this copy from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review!
