This cover is interesting to me, simply because it took me a few looks to figure out that fleshy, goo-ish blob is actually a person unmasking. I don’t know why their creative team chose to portray the unmasking in the form of sculpted ground meat, but it’s their decision, so who am I to question them.
Their tagline is incorrect, because to believe or not, I’d really have to care first.
This issue, I decided that the only character I like is King Shark. Mostly because he only gets two words per issue, and they only have to do with eating things/people.
The cover this time around is mostly inoffensive, but absolutely atrocious. Every inch of his body is rippling with muscles, probably in an attempt to stop him from falling over backwards in an attempt to keep that ridiculous pose.
It also kind of looks like the Squad is falling from the moon for whatever reason.
Okay, so overly-long, unofficial hiatus over.
Say hello to Suicide Squad Issue #9:
It’s kinda ugly (which is hardly a departure from the norm), but there’s really nothing otherwise noteworthy about it.
Except maybe King Shark’s face.
