Review of New Suicide Squad: Freedom

New Suicide Squad, Volume 3: Freedom by Sean Ryan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well, eventually, things need to veer off-course, right? And I’m not referring to the plot. (Okay, I AM, but it works on two levels here) It’s almost a given that as soon as a comic settles into place, moving on track, someone decides to toss a monkey wrench into the works. Then you get a trainwreck of a plot where everything slams into a brick wall of, “I guess that makes sense” and “All right, you sort of tied up a few loose ends.” Then they tack on a few “bonus” content pieces that don’t contribute any extra material or insight to the plotline. (And in the case of the Katana bit, don’t even provide you with an ending or the promise of more to come, much less a hint of, “Hey, go here to find out how this ends!”)

Is it worth the read? Sure. The creative team continued to do a better job than in the first run. However, it’s a little tiring to get into a groove and then end up tossed out of it. Comics and consistency are NOT friendly bedmates. They’re barely roommates.

I speak the thoughts rattling around in my brain, sharing topics I think other people want and should hear (or are afraid to talk about themselves). I bring my personality and quirky state of mind to everything I write; serious topics shouldn't be devoid of humor. That includes my blog and freelance work (part of my charm). I've been writing for as long as I can remember. It's a source of solace and enjoyment for me. I'm lucky enough to call what I love my career - so it's NOT work! I live in Virginia with the Minions (four cats and a Greyhound) and my wonderful husband, who ensures I stay fed - no cereal for dinner - and as close to sane as I can get.
