Suicide Squad, Volume 2: Going Sane by Rob Williams

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What’s Suicide Squad without a bit of insanity? (Or is that sanity?) Compared with previous takes on the subject, Mr. Williams’s version is probably one of my favorites. At least he played around with the idea in a way that felt the most genuine for all of the characters.

That said, you can only push the suspension of disbelief so far – even in comics. (How the hell did you intend to explain Boomerang? I love the guy, too, but – huh?) I suppose it’s one of those times where you just roll your eyes, throw up your hands, and continue reading. After all, good characters are difficult to come by.

And while I appreciate the “Team Files” (why have I never heard of Killing Frost until now?), these seemed more random than before. Instead of offering additional pieces of a puzzle, it felt like someone mixing different games into a pile and telling you to figure out the rules. My only guess is they’ll make sense down the road. (Or is that a futile hope?)

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.
