Review of Suicide Squad: Give Peace a Chance

Suicide Squad, Vol. 1: Give Peace a Chance by Robbie Thompson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Let’s kick things off by stating I HATE Peacemaker.

Of course, I do. Everyone hates Peacemaker. He’s a/an [insert expletive of choice].

But you have to give Mr. Thompson credit – he writes one of the most genuinely dislikable characters out there. And yet, you don’t want to throw the volume across the room, never to pick it up again. So there’s a particular sort of brilliance there. It takes genuine craft to work with someone NO ONE wants to see succeed (and everyone secretly celebrates the beatdown of).

And this new Suicide Squad team is intriguing. Okay, yes, I’m slightly jaded about the loss of my preferred team. But change isn’t all bad. And Culebra is downright hysterical (how can you NOT love her?). It’s an interesting branch from the Rebirth series (which I, admittedly, still need to finish). I also assume it leads to that travesty that is Future State – but I’ve already addressed that.

All told, not bad.

So long as Peacemaker continues to take a beating, anyway.

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.
