I’m happy to say that Suicide Squad Rebirth #1 succeeds on many levels. First off, the story has this solid back to basics approach that sees Amanda Waller try to recruit an imprisoned Rick Flag for the latest iteration of the Squad. Unlike so many New 52 books, Suicide Squad Rebirth #1 has a nice sense of history as writer Rob Williams reintroduces the concept of Flag being a descendant of the original leader of the World War II version of Task Force X. Yes, us DC fans like a sense of history and that lineage is brought back in the pages of this Suicide Squad launch.
