Review: Suicide Squad #46 - “Sink Atlantis” Part Three
“Sink Atlantis” - Part Three
Writers: Rob Williams and Dan Abnett
Artists: Jose Luis and Jordi Tarragona
Review by Philip Clark Things are really heating up in Atlantis. After the reveal at the end of Suicide Squad #45, the team were left morally divided. What? The Suicide Squad, morally divided? I know, I was just as shocked as you are… but it’s true. You can read all about it in Aquaman #39.
This is the third instalment in the story arc and the second in the Suicide Squad title. We are really into the meat of the story now, and it’s been impressive so far. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every panel, in both titles. Rob Williams and Dan Abnett have done a fantastic job at crafting a story that gives all of its characters a chance in the limelight.
New Squad, New Rules
Williams is doing something fabulous with Suicide Squad, and that’s bringing in new characters. Not only that, but he’s also developing the characters that already exist within the series. It’s a dark day when Deadshot and Harley are the voices of reason!
Killer Croc’s lost everything, causing him to revert to his more ferocious nature. Deadshot has a new found respect for life, especially the lives of children. On the opposite side of the moral spectrum Lord Satanis fancies himself the new leader of the Suicide Squad and is willing to take out Waller in the process. Even Harley has grown a conscience, unwilling to carry out the horrific mission the Squad were sent to carry out.
Another excellent issue from Rob Williams. I love the new direction that the comic appears to be going in. The artwork in this issue is great as well. I love what Luis and Tarragona have done with the character designs of the new team members.
I’m looking forward to the conclusion of this story in Aquaman #40.

It's very rare that the worlds of geeks and music collide in a powerful way, but Professor Elemental has made that happen.
'School of Whimsy' sees Brighton's finest export solidify his career with his strongest album to date. Over a ten year journey Paul Alborough has helped create the phenomenon of Chap-Hop, a mix of hip hop and a tongue-in-cheek take on English gentry.
The character of Professor Elemental has allowed Paul to push the boundaries of his music, as well as allowing him to show the world his love of anything nerdy. His songs are littered with references to superheroes and comics, and have a huge underlying message of positivity.
Luckily, Fantastic Universes' resident music ninja Scott Hamilton managed to chat not only with Paul, but also with the crazy genius that is Professor Elemental. Here's part one where we talk to Paul about his musical career, his love of comics and what we can expect from the Professor in the future…
I make it no secret, readers, that I love two games more than the air I breathe. Dungeons and Dragons, and Magic: the Gathering. Despite being made by the same publishing company, Wizards of the Coast, they've made almost no crossed streams.
The talk of Wizards wanting to publish a new setting for their supplemental campaigns left many wondering where we can go. This is no mere Plane Shift - like those of Zendikar or Kaladesh, leaving us with races and statistics, and prompts on where to go. This is a full, world guide. And it's RAVNICA!
Next to nothing is known about this supplement. It appeared on Brazilian Amazon then later on an American version of the site. The product description features very accurate portrait of the Acumenopolis in the heart of every Magic player. All we can do is speculate.
As an avid player of both games, I have exceedingly high expectations for this supplement. It needs to deliver new races seen on Ravnica. Goblins of…
