A new Suicide Squad ongoing is scheduled to launch this December – with new people in charge, and we’re not just talking creators.
Injustice 2 writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo reunite for a new version of Task Force X – with Amanda Waller replaced with what the publisher describes as “an all-new and mysterious leader.”
“This Squad’s new mission is to neutralize a new group of international super-terrorists known as the Revolutionaries – and not everyone on either side will make it out alive!” reads DC’s description of the book. “But when the U.S. government’s most deniable team of antiheroes realizes that the surviving Revolutionaries will be joining the Squad, that’s when the fireworks really begin!”
As with the previous volume, Harley Quinn and Deadshot are the two core members of the team – but from the looks of Ivan Reis’ cover, they’ll be joined by King Shark, Zebra-Man, the Cavalier, and an unidentified character in the center.
The double-sized, $4.99 Suicide Squad #1 is scheduled to debut December 18.
