  1. I’ve been catching up reading some of the older trades. While I still haven’t seen the new suicide squad movie I still don’t understand their reluctance to rely more on the classic squad stories which were when the squad was so much better and more popular. And I always enjoyed John and Kim’s more nuanced approach to Amanda’s characterization more than the later approaches to her which just seemed too one sided.
