    With one of the best incarnations of the team ever, some great character moments and brutal action, Suicide Squad: Dream Team #3 is one of the best books of the week.

    This series is only four issues, which means it’s all coming to a close next issue. I’m not sure what Maines has planned next for DC, but I would say DC would be very smart to keep her busy and happy – her work for them so far has been excellent.

    The art and storytelling in Suicide Squad: Dream Team #3 is absolutely fantastic. I’m not typically one to get into The Suicide Squad, but this series has been top notch with this issue being my favorite thus far.

    Again, not my favorite out of all of the issues so far, but I’m still interested to see how Suicide Squad: Dream Team concludes. The creative team continues to produce a solid story, and I kind of wish the series was longer. I want to know why Dreamer is so important to Waller’s plans. How does Dreamer want to handle Waller and her schemes? It leaves me wanting more, and I have been pleasantly surprised throughout the run. Don’t sleep on this people!

    The Suicide Squad and Amanda Waller have often been defined as morally ambiguous, but Suicide Squad: Dream Team doesn’t leave any question about their nature as here, Waller and her Squad are definitely the villains. Waller presents the hegemonic power of empire as she instigates coups to create new client-states and riles up xenophobic hatred to her own political end. Meanwhile, the prisoners of the Squad are left to spin as cynical cogs in her game, understanding their role but unable to change it. All of that is addressed on the surface of Suicide Squad: Dream Team as Dreamer calls out the obvious evils of their mission only to be met with shrugs. It’s bound to resonate with readers watching the United States engage in grisly wars abroad and mass incarceration at home; even if it lacks in nuance the emotional heft of the scenarios and imagery is undeniable. Dreamer‘s presentation in classic heroic poses juxtaposed with the ugliness filling the rest of the issue makes for a strong contrast, even if some action sequences feature just-too-muddy inks. Dream Team may not be subtle, but it’s returning the Squad to its geopolitical roots and finding plenty of strength in that vein of stories.

    Dark Knight News

    The story is growing, the tensions everywhere are rising. Something’s coming, Maines is doing a great job at leaving us clue crumbs in each issue.

    This series is getting stronger and stronger, with Suicide Squad: Dream Team #3 as the best of the bunch, so far. I’m looking forward to catching the next issue and seeing what else Nicole (Dreamer) Maines has in store for us!
