The Flight of the Firebird last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 07/31/18 06:29AM View full history

The Squad is sent into Russia to bring back a now-famous dissident, but getting in and around the USSR is no easy deal, especially when they will have a wanted prisoner with them, so the Squad is bringing along the Penguin for the ride.

The Suicide Squad enters Russia to liberate a political prisoner... a prisoner who does not want to be freed!

And this Firebird you cannot change 0

Suicide Squad #5 “The Flight of the Firebird” Written by John Osterander Art by Luke McDonelle After two stand alone issue, Suicide Squad gets back to its namesake with impossible missioning. “The Flight Of The Firebird” begins the first point in an arc involving the Squad’s mission in Russia and the retrieval of a political prisoner, Zoya Trigorin. It was that or Nicaragua.Being that it is the first issue in an arc, there is really a lot to write about without plot...

A bit messy but still good 0

So I continue to try to search out old copies of the original Suicide Squad and even though everything isn't top notch writing it still good enough not to disappoint me.  In this issue the team takes off to russia for a mission which centres around freeing a political prisoner. Ostrander chooses to involce the penguin for some reason which sort of confuses the story for me but it doesn't mess it up completely. He continues to fill the pages with a vibe of realism, the characters have many layers...
