New Suicide Squad AND Blue Beetle for DC Re-Launch
Well, I guess DC wasn’t done with their edgier books today. Newsarama got word of the new Suicide Squad book coming out as well written by Adam Glass and art by Marco Rudy:
Here’s the scoop from DC on the premise:
“Harley Quinn! Deadshot! King Shark! They’re a team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on missions so dangerous – they’re sheer suicide! Who will be the first to crack under the pressure? Find out in SUICIDE SQUAD #1, written by Adam Glass (FLASHPOINT: LEGION OF DOOM) with art by Marco Rudy (THE SHIELD).”
Sadly, with only a couple of books left to mention of the 52 DC has been announcing, it looks like fan favorite Secret Six may be getting the chopping block. Makes you wonder where Catman, Bane, and the rest are heading come September – they already went to hell and decided it wasn’t their cup of tea…
UPDATE: 4:55 PM ET
Guess we’re not done yet, are we, DC? CBR reported this not too long ago:
Tony Bedard is writing and Ig Guara is drawing. Good to see DC is staying committed to this character. He got a good boost being in Justice League Generation Lost the last year or so.
