Suicide Squad #1, Adam Glass (w), Marco Rudy (a) [Print Edition]

THE PITCH: What if the worst villains in the DCU were forced to protect us by the government? And explosives in their brains?

HOW WAS IT? Waaaay better than I expected. I think, like most people, I was pretty turned off by the cheesecake cover featuring Harley Quinn in her slightly ridiculous new outfit. First of all, it’s been de-sexified a bit inside, and made more in line with her video game/Arkham City costume… Which makes sense. Like most of the New 52, this is a chance to reach out to a wider audience, and if Suicide Squad looks like a video game tie-in, all the better for the casual reader.

And perhaps more than any other New 52 title, this is completely, squarely aimed at new readers. It’s an origin issue – not just for the Suicide Squad, but also individually for each member of the squad. And though it spends most of its running time on recapping in one page segments who everybody is, there’s still time for a neat (though not entirely unpredictable) twist, and a last page that promises some over the top villain action in issue two.

Here’s the deal: for most of the running time, I wasn’t sure what to think of this. It wasn’t bad, persay, but it seemed to be spending a lot of time getting us up to speed, rather than giving us any plot… Particularly as you’re thrown into the middle of the action already in progress. However, by the end of the issue, writers Adam Glass’ reasoning for this is sound (avoiding spoilers here), and it certainly helps set up who, say, Deadshot or King Shark are in the new DCU, characters who might not be as familiar as Harley Quinn to a casual audience.
