JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD #2 by Joshua Williamson - Book Review

From the publisher: The first major event storyline of DC’s Rebirth era begins with a day Amanda Waller always knew would come: the Justice League discovers the existence of the Suicide Squad! This government-sponsored black-ops team of super-villains with bombs implanted in their brains is obviously a deal-breaker for Earth’s paragons of truth and justice! But you can bet the Waller and her Task Force X won’t go down without the fight to end all fights as this weekly series gets under way! 

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #2, by Joshua Williamson, picks up right where issue #1 left off: with the JL meeting the Squad. What follows in this issue is the classic super-team fight. Both as groups and indiviually, the heroes of the Justice League and the "heroes" of the Suicide Squad match up and battle. Interspersed with the fighting are little character bits, like Killer Croc mentioning a past with Aquaman that he doesn't remember, and Harley Quinn referring to a friendship with Wonder Woman.

Meanwhile, Maxwell Lord has formed his own group of villians, with the purpose of getting vengeance against Amanda Waller.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad is gradually building, and Williamson is taking full advantage of having access to multiple heroes and villians. I highly recommend this fun and action-packed book. Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #2 is an entertaining read. I look forward to reading the rest of this series.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.
