Suicide Squad, Volume 4: Earthlings on Fire by Rob Williams

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ugh, Zod, Zod, Zod. Why is everything related to Superman so ANNOYING? (I’m going to take this second to admit I disliked him even before the movie reboots) You can’t help but dislike the guy. I don’t know if it’s the limited vocabulary (seems to be a trait of every Kryptonian offshoot) or the tendency toward single-mindedness, but flipping through the pages got tedious. Mr. Williams needed more cheeky one-liners to break up the irritation.

Not the worst installment in the Rebirth, though. The final chapter recovered the fumble nicely. Waller’s insight into the Team verges on the supernatural (why has no one questioned her abilities?). It hammered home the underlying psychological messages of these “missions” – summing up the series brilliantly. The pages were worthy of framing.

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.
