Review – Justice League vs. Suicide Squad – Issue #1
DC Comics launched one of the most epic battles in comic history, Justice League vs Suicide Squad. There will be a total of 6 issues which adds more to DC Universe REBIRTH. This is considered one of the first major events to occur in the new REBIRTH era in DC Comics. The book is written by Joshua Williamson (Nailbiter) with art from Jason Fabok (Justice League).
I will try not to list any spoilers for those who have not read any of the issues.
The Justice League (Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Simon Baz, Superman, Cyborg, and Jessica Cruz) learn about Amanda Waller and her Task force, The Suicide Squad (Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Enchantress, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Killer Frost, and El Diablo). The Justice League decides its time to take Waller and the Squad down. However, she will not go down without a fight.
The issue begins with the Squad on a mission to stop a cult. This cult is using the Quake Pulsar to cause earthquakes to occur.
This book has a great start in a story line. The writing is a bit slow but it is necessary for the first issue. The art is visually well done and stimulating to the eyes as a comic book fan. Fabok artwork provides a lot of depth to the story line. He is clearly the right man for the job, when it comes to a limited mini series.
Great visual work from Fabok in this book. I look forward to what he brings to the future of comics.
I encourage everyone who has not picked up a REBIRTH book to pick up this one. It is a great event and a great time to start a new year by embracing the spirit of rebirth. What other way then to pick up DC Universe REBIRTH issues.
