Did you ever want a crossover that features the Suicide Squad and Aquaman? Well, you’ve got one! And while it didn’t start off all that strong, it ended up being a lot of fun and I enjoyed this short four-issue crossover.
The story takes place in Suicide Squad issues 45 and 46, as well as Aquaman issues 39 and 40.
The Suicide Squad team is a bit different after a key member has died, as well as a slight roster shakeup. The important members in this story are Harley Quinn, Deadshot and Killer Croc. We also get Lord Satanis, who ends up being a villain with his own agenda. On the Aquaman side, we get action from him and King Shark. Mera is also heavily involved in the story.
The real highlight of this entire event though, is the battle between Killer Croc and King Shark, a fight I never knew I wanted.
For the most part, this turned out better than the first issue led me to believe. The story was a bit weak and the threat, while somewhat large, was perpetrated by a very minor villain that most people won’t even remember.
I thought the art was good and most of the dialogue was decent.
Now had Harley become Queen of Atlantis, that would have been more entertaining.
Pairs well with: The Suicide Squad and Aquaman story arcs that led up to this.
