suicide squadSuicide Squad: Pure Insanity, Vol. 1 by Sean Ryan

Genre: Superhero Comics

Series: New 52 Suicide Squad

Publisher: DC Comics (July 21, 2015)

Length:192 pages

My Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars

Confession #1: I received this book from DC Comics and Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. I’d like to inform everyone that the review you are about to read is my opinion alone.

Confession #2: I preferred Amanda Waller as the overweight, non-politician she was in the past.


Confession #3: Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Man-bat ninjas, and Joker’s Daughter (at least as she is portrayed in this collection) really suck.

Confession #4: Harley Quinn is an interesting lady, especially when she is constantly pissed off and trying to kick people’s asses.


Confession #5: I love Deathstroke, even when he is no where near as prominently featured in the actual story as he is on the front cover of the book.

Confession #6: I enjoy things going BOOM! If enough things go BOOM!, I tend to enjoy the comic, tv show, or movie where said things are going BOOM! It is a side effect of too much testosterone I’ve been told.

Confession #7: If sexy ladies are involved in making things go BOOM! I enjoy said BOOMS! even more.

Confession #8: I swear that I will not complain if Man-bat ninjas disappear from DC comics forever, because they suck. Oh, I already mentioned that? Sorry — but they do suck.

Confession #9: If someone — perhaps Harley Quinn — where to kill Joker’s Daughter while attempting to shut her constant yapping about wearing Joker’s face, I would actually pay extra for that comic.

Confession #10: I enjoyed this comic collection. Things went BOOM!; Harley was kicking ass; and the art (though it had rough patches) was fairly good. For those reason, I could overlook the problems with the story and enjoy this delicious time killer for what it really is: the DC version of the Expendables!

Buy the book at Amazon.
