The Suicide Squad is a command of imprisoned murderers and psychopaths who are sent on covert missions in order to achieve adhesion reductions for themselves. Lest anyone steps out of line, we find an explosive device in the neck, you can not remove yourself. The group will be sent to their recruitment at the beginning in a football stadium - with the task to kill all 60,000 visitors.
The team consists of more or less known members. Harley Quinn and Deadshot are the most famous members, the rest are only C- or D-villains. That's also a problem with which the comic is struggling. It is simply not warm with most figures. They act either ridiculous (King Shark, Yo-Yo) out of place (Voltaic) or completely irrelevant (the twins Lime and Light). Only El Diablo a little more depth of field has been missed. Otherwise clear Deadshot and Harley Quinn are the focus, even if the story about Harley correctly receives only towards the end of the comic journey.
The refreshing of the comic is mainly that the author has the freedom to throw conventional narrative modes overboard. For precisely because the protagonists are not dashing hero, you do not know if all pull together, or whether all the characters survive the missions.
The drawings are a major triumph, the action and the bloody scenes are converted convincing.
For the plotline around the Joker, it is recommended "Batman: Detective Comics Vol. 1: Faces of Death (The New 52)" to read, but is not a prerequisite.
