Comic Book A Day – Day 48 – Suicide Squad #0 (2012)

Suicide Squad #0 review

Suicide Squad:  The very short tale of a group of people who kill themselves. The end.

The only issue I have with Suicide Squad #0 is that it basically featured no one presented on the cover except Amanda Waller. ¬†False advertising…

But, that being said, this is a solid origin story, not of Amanda Waller or any of the other characters, but of the rationale behind having a Suicide Squad in the first place.

Amanda Waller

Oh snap! I can’t believe that lady splucked her!

Not only did it give us a little more background on Amanda Waller and how much of a bad ass she is, it also made me want to read more about her in upcoming Suicide Squad comics as well as the new Team 7 book.

For a solid origin story, which is the point of these 0 books, I’m giving Suicide Squad #0 4 out of 6 possible Aarons!

Splucked!
