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.

SUBMITTED FOR YOUR APPROVAL… The Twilight Zone , a television series that shows no signs of letting up, is still going strong 60 years since it first debuted on CBS in 1959. Created by the already popular writer Rod Serling, the show became a series with an infinite lifespan. The Twilight Zone is now 60 years young and still has a massive appeal to those who love a bit of twisted, comedic, moralistic and, at times horrifying, science fiction. I have been a fan of this show for many years, from the original to the latest version by Jordan Peele. It was probably in the 1980’s that I first came across this show and I was amazed. Back then, just a teenager, I thought black and white shows were old and ‘fuddy duddy’ (as my kids would say nowadays). That was until my late mam (who was always there when I found my love for various things as a youngster) turned on the tv and an episode of the TZ was showing. I always remember the first episode I saw being "Ti

Writer: Jeph Loeb Artist: Tim Sale Review by Eric Lee Welcome to our year long retrospective of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's seminal classic Batman story: The Long Halloween. Each retrospective will be released on a monthly basis. We will provide literary analysis and insight on one of the best Batman stories ever. Is The Long Halloween as good as its reputation? Read on to find out! Batman and 'The Godfather' The story starts off with the writer Jeph Loeb homaging the opening to The Godfather. Just like Don Corleone, Bruce Wayne boldly proclaims: "I believe in Gotham City." Bruce Wayne's character arc summed up in one sentence. The sentence is simple, but an important statement that defines Batman's character arc for the whole series. He has just completed his first year as Batman and his promise to rid Gotham of crime may be in his grasp. Bruce is uncharacteristically optimistic in not only his own abilities, but the power of the city
