Suicide Squad, Volume 1: Kicked in the Teeth

Suicide Squad - Vol. 1 - Kicked in the Teeth

Title: Suicide Squad, Volume 1: Kicked in the Teeth
Author: Adam Glass (Author), Federico Dallocchio (Illustrator), Clayton Henry (Illustrator)
Rating: ★★★★

So, there are lovers and haters of the Suicide Squad movie. In the movie, Harley Quinn is depicted as this strong, independent woman. However, for those of you comic book nerdies out there, we know that to be entirely false. It just annoys me that so much is changed to fit a movie when the comic clearly makes much more sense. Ugh!

Supervillains recruited from prison, sent on covert missions and injected with a nanite bomb so we stay in line. A bad deal.

Injected by a nanite bomb to coerce cooperation, we find Deadshot, Harley Quinn, King Shark, and more on their new mission. A zombie virus breakout is brewing and the Suicide Squad is dispatched to find a certain lady and her “package”. This package is the cure for the dreaded zombie virus.

Along the way, Harley Quinn finds out about the death of her “Puddin'”, aka The Joker, and goes off on her own to find his face that was removed as a sign of his death. With her Harley gang emulating her, the Suicide Squad finds themselves in a struggle to defeat the posers before the detonator of the implanted bombs runs out.

We find ourselves left with the supposed death of one of our precious Suicide Squad members. Is that person really dead? Where is the Joker’s body? What happened with Yo-Yo after saying he was alive in King Shark? Will the Squad survive the virus and the Harley Quinn look-alikes? What happens next?
