Having weathered the dangers of the Black Vault and survived an encounter with the Justice League, the members of Task Force X are ready for their next big mission. Suicide Squad #11 proves that there’s life for the series after losing artist Jim Lee, even if the same, pesky structural problems remain.
That’s right, this issue still features the same, choppy structure that results in the main story and backup feature being of equal length. Once again, that leaves writer Rob Williams struggling to advance the main narrative before it reaches an abrupt, unsatisfying conclusion 10 pages in. I really wish DC would abandon that approach, as it tends to slow the book’s pacing to a crawl issue after issue.
