Review by jshillingford
Woo – and I thought the last volume was twisted! In Volume 2, Deadshot killed himself while taking out the bad guy, or so it seemed. Volume 3 opens with his funeral and the surprising return of the Joker. He’s here for Harley and he’s none too pleased she got naughty with Deadshot. The first third of the book is their reunion and it pretty much sums up how sick this series is. It also shows that there is much more to Harley than anyone thinks, including Joker. I love that she truly gets the chance to kiss some a@@ in this volume.The rest of the book confirms that death is never a guarantee in the comic book world, for heroes or villains. The Basilisk storyarc continues here as we learn about a character that has the ability to turn off metahumans’ (“super” people) powers and everyone wants him! The Squad find themselves in the unusual position of being given the choice to continue the mission or not. Overall, this is an excellent continuation of the series. The characters are being developed beyond just “bad guys” and Harley’s new quirk has the potential for a lot of humor. And despite the cliffhanger ending, I like how the series isn’t just limited to missions of the week – it’s getting some depth. Highly recommended.
