Suicide Squad 4, cover, 2021, Gerard Parel variantTITLE: Suicide Squad #4
AUTHOR: Robbie Thompson
ARTISTS: Eduardo Pansica, Joe Prado (Inker), Julio Ferreira (Inker), Marcelo Maiolo (Colorist), Wes Abbott (Letterer). Variant cover by Gerard Parel.
RELEASED: June 1, 2021

For a portion of this issue, a Talon, one of the fierce and foreboding assassins that does the bidding of the Court of Owls, literally speaks owl. As in, he literally just uses the word “Who.” Not a fan.

I can’t look at Eduardo Pansica’s Peacemaker without seeing John Cena. Which of course, with the movie coming out, is precisely the idea.

I’m still not a fan of Suicide Squad and Teen Titans Academy crossing over so quickly out of the gate. Thankfully, it’s looking like that was a one-off.

Wait, I thought Peacemaker was supposed to be a comedic character? He certainly looks like one to me…

After almost 10 years, it looks like they might finally be getting Harley Quinn away from the Suicide Squad. Though that may be wishful thinking, as she’s in the upcoming James Gunn Suicide Squad movie. There’s no Deadshot, either. Not yet, at least. So for now we’ve got more or less a new line-up, with Peacemaker in a starring role to tie-in with the film.

This book has my attention. For now.
