Suicide Squad #2 review

Amanda Waller is gone. She’s ceded her job as Task Force X supremo to the mysterious Lok. And where it used to be that missions were voluntary – a super convict agrees to be a covert op for the US in return for remission – there are new rules. It doesn’t actually sound like a […]
