This story should be happening in the main Suicide Squad book. A story about the team going after the Joker is a nice way to draw in fans of the movie, even if the team line-up isn’t quite the same.

Azzarello is a good fit for the Squad He turns in something that, again, I would argue is better than the main series. It’s gritty, it’s violent, it’s witty. It’s the way the Suicide Squad should be.

How has the Red Hood not been on this team before? Frankly, he fits it like a glove.

If I’m at DC, I want this Suicide Squad book to be firing on all cylinders because of any interest the new James Gunn movie might generate. Frankly, I’m not sure it is. Right now we’ve got a story about Squad members traveling to Earth-3. That’s appealing to regulars like yours truly. But to a casual audience that might not normally read comics? Maybe not.

And while I normally am not a fan of how overexposed she is, not including Harley Quinn in this line-up might have been a mistake given how prominently she’s featured in the film.
