Suicide Squad #7 Review

Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Daniel Sampere
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: July 28, 2020

Suicide Squad is is my favorite book at DC right now.  Chip Zdarsky's Daredevil edges it out overall (check out our Marvel Podcast!), but this is second, and there is nothing wrong with that!  Unless you go by the "first loser" mentality that never allowed me to experience fun as a kid.  Enough about me and my intense desire for attention from my father, let's see why this book and this issue are so gear...

The book opens up at Kord Industries, and if you've been waiting to see that Ted Kord is doing one of those, "I look bad, but I'm the good guy here" things, you will still be waiting.  Call him George Thorogood because he is bad to the bone.  For now.

We then cut to the big moment I've been waiting for... Deadshot getting to see his daughter, Zoe.  Tom Taylor plays it well here as the reader is as nervous as Floyd, which makes the reunion that much better.

Of course, things don't usually go well for Floyd in these situations, and so it's no surprise that his pardon may not be totally on the books anymore.  It sucks since Tom Taylor does what he does best, and I don't think any reader hasn't fallen in love with Zoe at this point.  The problem is, when Tom Taylor does that, it spells big trouble for that character.  Death trouble!

This issue is such a quick read, and at this point, most of you will be paging frantically through it.  I won't spoil anything here, but I will tell you that Taylor mixes it up a bit and shows that family isn't just about blood, though there is plenty of that spilled as well.  I ended the issue with a new favorite character, and we get a new costume and a classic to boot.

If you haven't been reading this book, start right now.  If you have been reading, I think you will love this issue.  Me?  I'm going to enjoy this story and characters and hope that more people jump on, so it doesn't get canceled. 

Bits and Pieces:

Suicide Squad is a book that everyone needs to put on their pull list.  Why?  Because I like it and want it to keep going.  Yea, I'm selfish like that, but it comes from a place of love.  This issue has good art, genuine feelings, and moments when you will pump your fist in the air.  Don't believe me?  Then I dare you to buy it and prove me wrong!
