Suicide Squad: The Black Vault (Volume #1) Comic Book Review

The government has once again handpicked the worst of the worst for its Task Force X. Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Katana and Killer Croc. All deadly criminals sent on the most dangerous missions possible by a government that wants them killed. But their newest challenge? A teammate so powerful that even this group of murderers and thieves can't control. 

After the mess that was the first volume of the New 52 Suicide Squad, I was a little apprehensive about starting this one. Thankfully I was greeted with everything that the previous volume lacked - a solid engaging plot, character development  and plenty of one liners. Oh and one of DC's biggest villains makes an appearance too. Who? Go read it!

Harley Quinn is DC's biggest cash in (if you can think of a product you can likely buy it with her image on it) but her character often seems to be brushed off a "Crazy" and that's it. This time she's still crazy but funny, with nods to her intelligence too. She easily had the best one liners, her character overall kind of reminded me of Tank Girl.

As a new reader I appreciated the sections in between the stories explaining the back story of each character. Familiar readers may find this boring but hey, it will keep me buying these volumes. Luckily for me, King Shark has been replaced by Killer Croc, who I understand a lot better due to him actually speaking instead of just eating people.
