Review of SUICIDE SQUAD: BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE

Suicide Squad, Volume 3: Burning Down The House by Rob Williams

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I tip my hat to Mr. Williams and Mr. Ostrander: This was a good one. Playing around with the (very) real motivations of the characters to construct an elaborate, insane scheme? I mean, you don’t get more Suicide Squad than that. Of course, I missed what I suspect was an important plot element, not having read the OTHER comic (so obnoxious when they do that to you), but picking up the threads wasn’t as terrible as you find in other situations.

And adding depths to Amanda Waller? That’s something that hasn’t happened in previous iterations. Not in this manner, anyway. She’s an unfeeling monster; it’s her M.O. This time, you start wondering, seeing her in a bit of a skewed fashion. Don’t get me wrong, she’s the devil. But maybe there’s a sliver of a heart in there – somewhere.

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 (it's 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 to do my career - so it's NOT work! I live in Virginia with the Minions (three 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.
