Suicide Squad, Volume 5: Kill Your Darlings by Rob Williams

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow. Just wow. (I may have forced myself to stay awake to finish this one)

Nothing like a mirror to drive a message home, eh? The levels of conflict within this volume just kept going! Mr. Williams deserves a round of applause. He threw away the lines between “good” and “bad” (as you should), confronting the idea of “us versus them” in the world of metahumans. And then he added a stick of dynamite.

You’re left staring at the pages in complete and utter awe. And then you find yourself rolling questions around in your brain. (Well, maybe the average reader does. Personally, I’ve always felt them rattling) When those final panels pop up, your jaw DROPS. It’s sheer genius.

Well, excluding the epilogue. (Setting things up for the next volume, blah, blah, blah)

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.
