Review: Suicide Squad (2016-) Vol. 1: The Black Vault

Suicide Squad (2016-) Vol. 1: The Black Vault Suicide Squad (2016-) Vol. 1: The Black Vault by Rob Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received an eARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I love Suicide Squad. I can't say why, I just do. Probably the whole anti-hero thing and gray morality and dark humor rolled up into a super hero being team I can get behind. I even liked the film, despite everyone instructing me to dislike it.

And you know, I just freakin' adore Harley Quinn.



Now this particular collection was enjoyable to me as a re-reboot in the Rebirth era of the Reboot-not-a-Reboot DC Universe that comes after the actual Reboot that was the New 52. Huh?? Yeah, what I said. Regardless to the backstory/reboot/restart status of the series, this was a great introduction to the series. A new reader would be able to follow what's going on. I did notice that the team makeup is very similar to that of the film, and I suspect that is an audience they are trying to appeal too. Not entirely, though.

I did feel it was a bit short. The intro mission itself was wrapped up, but finished up a lot sooner than I expected. I will say that I enjoyed the short backstory pieces on the individual members, though they didn't cover everyone....at least not in this collection.

Definitely up for the second one.
