Review: New Suicide Squad, Vol. 2: Monsters

New Suicide Squad, Vol. 2: Monsters New Suicide Squad, Vol. 2: Monsters by Sean Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a preview eARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley.

This is the second sequence featuring the newly reformed Suicide Squad, and the team is finally starting to come together. Well, they're still pretty messed up and dysfunctional, but they're getting better. I mean, what can you expect from a squad of super-villains turned secret government operatives?

My favorite member of the team is definitely Harley Quinn.

This isn't the fun-loving, (mostly) good-natured vigilante with her own sense of justice featured in the Harley Quinn series (Volume 3 reviewed here). In her solo series I labeled her as batshit crazy, but this one...this one. Yeah. This girl is completely nucking futs.

She's still fun though. Just don't let her get bored. Ever.

We also get the other members of the Squad in this: Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Black Manta, Reverse Flash, and Parasite.

"Who the hell is Parasite?"
"You haven't seen him around? He's kinda like if Grimace had sex with a nightmare."

So in this volume, our heroes err, team members set out to infiltrate a splinter branch of the League of Assassins. Whatever you do, don't ask for weekends off. This is a group that feels the original LoA has gone soft and lost its sense of mission. These dudes are seriously dedicated.

And our New Suicide Squad? Not so much.

But they're getting there...
