El retorno de Ostrander a uno de sus títulos más destacados se tradujo en una potente miniserie donde los criminales reclutados por Amanda Waller emprenden una enésima misión para rebajar condenas. Caras conocidas y varios nuevos en una historia no exenta de acción, tiempo de prestado y el trance concentrado que ya se vio en la serie continuada. Muy recomendable.
#10 of The 2015 Reading Challenge. Also reviewed in more detail hear:

This has got to be one of the most slow moving, most boring books i have ever read!
With From the Ashes Ostrander updates his idea of villains turned government operatives (think: the Dirty Dozen) in a tale that bashes big corporate warmongers with thinly veiled political overtones (that simultaneously don't come off as heavy handed).

Fans of the original series from the 1980's won't find anything new here, but they won't be disapointed either. Ostrander stays on top of his game creating a veritible lair of asps and throwing the characters into it face first. What follows is a m
Nice read. Found it on a top-list of Suicide Squad comics as I've been curious since the announcement that there would be a movie. Didn't get hooked though.

This is a nice return to a concept that was genius. Why did I only give it 3 stars, then? Well, the characters simply could not be developed in a mini the way they were in the regular title. And why hasn't DC followed up on this mini-series yet...?
Guy Byars
Great concept, terrible execution in pacing and stuffy writing that kept me wincing. Definitely the worst major-market graphic novel I've read, which given the potential of the source material evinces tragic disdain.
John Yelverton
Decent book, but it was far from spectacular or worth writing home about.
not as good as I'd hoped
