Title: SUICIDE SQUAD - REBIRTH
Post by: Jeff on August 16, 2016, 02:02:03 AM
Rebirth Issue

Eh. Maybe I'm just old and jaded but this didn't grab me.  It probably has potential but I'm not sticking around to find out.

One question though...

Wallers fat again? With no explanation.  I liked plus size Waller better but the change is extreme.  They should have done it gradually so it's not so jarring.

Ha, yeah, kinda brought that back to the front fast, didn't they? Considering this isn't a "reboot" but just a soft reset, you would think they would have handled that a little differently  :D Still, I am more than fine with her plumpness returning (I am sure you are too. I know it was just how they did it so fast that got to you  8)) and I never understood the reasoning for the switch anyway. Especially in this new all things are fine world we live in, having a plus size character should be a normal thing. Although maybe DC thought her size and the fact she is who she is made it look like they were picking on her? Or maybe they thought that a "sexy" Waller was a better option? I don't know, just glad ole' big butt is back and causing trouble.

Now as for the first issue ... You didn't miss much. First of all the book is not a complete Suicide Squad story as a bout a quarter of it was a solo adventure with Deadshot. They are doing this, I imagine, to keep that slow ass Jim Lee on pace. Having to draw only 16 pages (or whatever it was) is a lot better than having to draw the entire book.

Secondly the story didn't really ... it was okay. I think I need another issue to make sure, but ... ya know ... it was fine. They get the group, they go on the mission and before they get there, problems happen. It was okay. Nothing grand, nothing horrible. Just an average, everyday comic, with a point bonus for getting Lee to pencil again.
