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
Article by Paul 'Professor Elemental' Alborough When DC comics laid off so many of their staff the other day, I was devastated*. Another little piece of joy taken away, more fantastic creative people losing their jobs, another big conglomerate stripping creativity for parts then crushing the scrap, and a much reduced chance that my proposed ‘Ambush Bug VS Plastic Man’ crossover mini-series script would ever be approved. It goes without saying, but 2020 is as bad as the Marvel Swimsuit comics from the early 1990s. That’s bad. Social media being what it is, (that is to say a huge purple monster, hell bent on sucking the joy out of life, spreading division and destroying Metropolis,) has given DC comics a bit of a kicking over the last decade or so. Never quite seen to be as hip and cool as Marvel, DC rebooted with their "Rebirth" in 2016, which saw the original comic book line return to its roots. Many said this was just a cynical ploy to shore up its fanbase, and cla
Article by Adam Ray Wizards and the fine people working on Arena's upkeep have promised us a surge to bring Historic to a true forefront. Arena's format. I mentioned in a previous article a lot of the details. Simply put, permanent queues for Historic are coming back on May 21st. To celebrate this, they're releasing another Historic Anthology. 27 cards this time around, we have the same 4,000 Gem or 20,000 Gold pricetag for playsets of all the cards. We've seen two previews: Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger immediately become the new favourite Ramp payoff and Phyrexian Obliterator be Historic's way in for Mono Black Devotion. Now, let's check out something new. From cycles to cycling, enchantress to enchantment-counters, and we are very much landed. Shrines of the Faithful We've seen the flavourful Kamigawa cycle of Honden be shown off for this release. Both powerful and flavourful, the shrines all work very well when played in multiple
