'Suicide Squad Vol. 2: Going Sane' tells a story of something that I never thought I'd see, but perhaps I should have expected it to show up at some point.
The Suicide Squad is back from Russia. They lost a team member but brought back the Black Vault. Inside the vault is a gigantic General Zod, who is likely insane from his time in the forbidden zone. When Waller attempts to convert Zod over as a new deadly Squad member, things get weird. Everyone starts going insane and trying to kill each other. The vault's contents have the exact opposite affect on her, and she becomes the only sane one who can save everyone else. She'll need help though because along with sanity, comes fear.
There are some back up Task Force X stories about Hack, the newest member of the team, Killer Croc, Enchantress, and Killer Frost. There is a Harley Quinn flashback story that came out for April Fool's Day, too.
It's an ok story, but it's got so much thrown at the walls that it's just chaos, and maybe that is the point. This is a weird team, and making Harley sane, even for just a little bit, was strange and interesting. The art varies a bit, but overall it's pretty good.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
