Title: Suicide Squad, Vol. 1: Kicked in the Teeth
Author: Adam Glass, Federico Dallocchio, Clayton Henry
Genre: Graphic Novel
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: July 10, 2012
As a part of the acclaimed DC Comics—The New 52 event of September 2011, writer and co-creator of the CW show Supernatural Adam Glass rolls out an all-new team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on missions so dangerous–they’re sheer suicide! The story begins with the Suicide Squad defeated, imprisoned and being interrogated about their newest mission. Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot and company must make it out alive without revealing who’s pulling the strings behind their illegal operations. Who will be the first to crack under the pressure? More importantly will they make it all out alive?
This is a great start to this series.
There is an ensemble cast of a bunch of DC Comics criminals in the Suicide Squad. They join together to fight against bigger villains. Even though this is a big group of people, each one gets their own space in the graphic novel. Harley Quinn is my favourite character, and I was pleased to see how much she was involved. She especially played an important part in the ending of the graphic novel, which was a great cliffhanger.
I enjoyed this graphic novel. I’m curious to see what happens next!
