After more then a year and a half of disappointment I needed this issue to come out with guns blazing in the direction I've been wanting this series to go in. Despite two new characters being added to the roster, still no Bronze Tiger, no Nightshade, no Vertigo, no Rick Flag or even a return of Captain Boomerang into the story line.
It just seems like DC is just Hell bent on selling a Suicide Squad to the readers that looks next to nothing like the Squad of the old DCU. I'd say I was done with the Suicide Squad reboot but that's been the case for almost a year now. Issue 20 just might have been the first stone to pave my way back to actually buying this book again but that didn't turn out to be the case. I recommend you spare yourself more disappointment and save your $3 for a more worth while cause like helping out the Boston Marathon bombing victims: https://secure.onefundboston.org/page/contribute/default
5/9 Update: Ya know I really think at this point DC is just trying to find all sorts of ways to fuck over the Ostrander/McDonnel Squad as much as possible. I just found out DC is finally introducing a rebooted Bronze Tiger but as a "Thundercat". Just go here to see the travesty of which I speak: http://thebronzetiger.blogspot.com/2013/05/defamation-of-character.html
