    1 thought on “Suicide Squad: The Silver Age”

    1. The first mission of the Suicide Squad! This is the first incarnation of Task Force X which is completely different to the one we know and love today, except for one member, Rick Flag! This was an interesting comic that had a majorly unrealistic thing happen! It was alright first story but could have been improved with some realism, which might sound weird for a comic that has (spoiler alert) a giant lizard monster in it but they travel to the sun on a space ship that was only meant to go to the [...]

    2. So I have a feeling this isn't what a lot of people expected. I've been reading comics for decades, but even I didn't realize The Suicide Squad started out as a military group that battled dinosaurs. The original issues were a team very similar to the Challengers of the Unknown, who for some reason was always fighting Dinosaurs. I never really saw the connection.Then we started getting stories of different members of the Suicide Squad, which morphed into a secret group of soldiers during WWII (I [...]

    3. One great by-product of the recent Suicide Squad turkey is that DC collected these Silver Age stories that have nothing to do with the super villain team in the film. Way back in 1959, when DC was slowly getting back into the super hero business, Robert Kanigher wrote three issues for the tryout magazine The Brave and the Bold featuring a team of adventurers similar to the recently successful Challengers of the Unknown. Drawn y DC's workhorse duo of Ross Andru and Mike Esposito, the stories are [...]

    4. If it weren't for the Suicide Squad movie, I'm sure these stories would never have been reprinted in color in such a deluxe format as the DC Omnibus. Let's be serious here, these early tales of the original Suicide Squad(s) are not the pinnacle of Silver Age storytelling, by any stretch of the imagination. Although the art is by the veteran team of Ross Andru and Mike Esposito, with tales written by Robert Kanigher, they are rather repetitive monster-of-the-week type stuff, done much better in t [...]

    5. a fun read but not exactly classic material. uneven, weakly plotted and the art could have been better. i enjoyed it only as nostalgia and because of my own fascination with DC's history. inessential .

    6. This is some really nostalgic fun, particularly with the old fashioned renditions of the dinosaurs that pervade most of the stories, but after the first six issues, nothing at all ties them to the later iteration of the Squad, which seems to go from present day to World War II (a late story is clearly set there, since we see a Japanese naval crew). The artwork, which is all by Ross Andru apart from one story by Joe Kubert and one by John Buscema is stupendous. It gets annoyingly repetitive as th [...]

    7. The only thing this iteration of Suicide Squad shares with the 2016 movie & comic series is the name. This books features comics mostly from the 1960s. These were clearly aimed at kids, as the plots were extremely simple and formulaic and very outlandish. Group of soldiers (with scientists added in the early issues) go on some type of military mission, encounter giant monsters or dinosaurs, attempt to escape. Lather, rinse, repeat. There are also lots of running gags, like how anytime someon [...]

    8. Lots of Silver Age fun in the first half with a consistent 4 person roster. We have connected plot threads, we discover an alternate dimension threat of invasion by cognitive dinosaurs, and we develop/repress personal feelings toward team members. Then a major writing shift occurs. Issues become repetitive in the second half when the narrative rotates among 2 person missions. Most of these involve vicious, personal rivalries that began prior to the service, and require teammates to train their w [...]

    9. The initial stories with the team led by Rick Flag were okay, but after that they get really silly and repetitive with every story beginning with a pterodactyl taking out a plane and then a succession of lizards attacking the heroes only to be stopped by grenades.If someone wanted to play a drinking game every time someone called a dinosaur a "blockbuster" in this collection, you could get really hammered.A curiosity, but nothing special, I'd almost say avoid this and stick with the 80's version [...]

    10. As a kid I liked a few of these tales since I got my comics on sale even when a dime or fifteen cents. But while all together the whole early series is a good way to follow the storyline, it is also very dated and not all that great.

    11. So, some good came out of that train wreck of a movie: DC reprints everything with the Suicide Squad on it.The silver age version is cashing in on the big adventure team theme that peaked with Challengers of the Unknown.A secret government team ( that makes public appearances for charity?) deals with weird and dangerous missions that always seem to end up involving giant monsters and/or aliens.Fun, as it's always cool to see normal people dealing with big threats and despite the heavy handed dra [...]

    12. Really enjoyed this hardcover collection of Silver Age tales of the original, non-super-powered, Suicide Squad. The sci-fi scripts by Robert Kanigher and the art mostly by Ross Andru exemplify the pace and tone of the period really well. None of these stories are particularly ground-breaking, but they're all a fun read.I'll be honest: I thought there were more Silver Age tales (in The Brave and the Bold or maybe elsewhere) featuring Rick Flagg's original team. I'd somehow blanked (if I'd ever ac [...]
