The Suicide Squad returns with an action packed tie-in to the Batman "Death of the Family" story!
As the Suicide Squad closes in on Basilisk leader Regulus, Deadshot and Harley discover multiple Basilisk sleeper agents within their ranks. Regulus makes one final desparate gamble to save himself by controlling Harley's mind, but Deadshot makes the ultimate sacrifice for his teammate.
Harley's lost "love" the Joker casts a poisonous rain over Deadshot's funeral, leaving only Harley conscious to face the clown prince of crime. Angered and unable to trust Harley because of her relationship with Deadshot, the Joker tests Harley's loyalty, a test which may cost both of them their lives.

This whole series has been weird so far. And yet I want to keep reading, wondering where the story will go. The art is just as good if a little weird. And more weird. Still an interesting read.
This book starts off with a big bang and talks about Harley and Joker's relationship but I didn't like how they portrayed her and Joker's relationship, the New 52 is making good stories overall but for some core details they are really dropping the ball.
The third bound collection of comics from the newest edition of DC Comics' Suicide Squad, collecting issues #14-19 of the series, is a bit uneven. This is inevitable when the second of the 6 issues (#15, “Running With the Devil – Part 2”), in this reviewer's opinion, is the best single issue of the new series to date, and among the best of ANY of the various incarnations of this comic book. The reunion of Harley Quinn and the newly-resurrected Joker provide an absolutely incredible look at one of comics' - perhaps even literature's – best known villains. The down side is, when you start a collection by presenting your absolute best, ANYTHING that follows is bound to pale in comparison – and, unfortunately, it does in this case. I think my main issue with the revived series is that the Squad's new arch-enemy, Regulus, doesn't excite me – at least not yet. As such, such questions as “what is is main goal”, “what allies has he lined up to assist in his plots”, and the like don't grab and hold me as strongly as the publishers might like. After all, the goal of a multi-part comic is to get the reader want to purchase the next issue! Further, the cliffhanger ending of this volume has a “haven't I seen this before – recently?” feel about it. (I cannot provide ANY details lest I divulge a major spoiler.) I eagerly awaited the arrival of this book, to the point where I actually pre-ordered it from one of the major online providers (a VERY rare occurrence for me). I'll probably get the next book in the series when it is published, as well – but after digesting this one, especially its conclusion, I will not be haunting my online bookstore nor waiting impatiently by my mailbox for it. RATING: 3 ½ stars, rounded up to 4 stars.
