“The Black Vault” part one! When a mysterious and definitely super-important cosmic item falls out of the heavens and into enemy hands, America has only one option: Task Force X, Amanda Waller’s strike team of incarcerated super-criminals. A one-stop-shop for plausibly deniable espionage and ultra- violence, this “Suicide Squad” only handles missions they’re not expected to survive. An insane new era of SUICIDE SQUAD begins here with superstar artist Jim Lee and red-hot writer Rob Williams (UNFOLLOW, MARTIAN MANHUNTER).
They're a team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on missions so dangerous that they're sheer suicide. Harley Quinn! Deadshot! King Shark! The villains of the DC Universe star in their own deadly and dangerous series!
The world has changed for Task Force X, a.k.a. the Suicide Squad. Director Amanda Waller no longer has the autonomy she once had, new members disrupt the team's dynamic, and the team takes on an international scope.
Two of the stars of next year's highly anticipated action movie break out in their own solo adventures in this extra-sized, 6-issue miniseries! First, in a story by Brian Buccellato, Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend, Deadshot is on the run, taking on a series of new contracts, and re-establishing himself as the world's most deadly marksman. But things are about to get complicated for Floyd Lawton when a figure from his past threatens to expose a dark secret and Deadshot gets word of his next target: Lex Luthor! Then, writer Mike W. Barr returns to the character he co-created in 'Katana, Cult of the Kobra,' with art by Diogenes Neves. Katana needs to know more about Soultaker's origin if she's going to have any hope of controlling the sword instead of falling under its influence. Dr. Helga Jace, a Markovian astrophysicist, may be able to shed some light-but before Katana can get the info, Kobra's forces attack!
From the pages of SUICIDE SQUAD comes an all-new series featuring two of the team’s most infamous heroes, El Diablo and Boomerang! First, a sudden pardon frees the fiery El Diablo from Belle Reve prison, much to the shock (and irritation) of team leader Amanda Waller. Chato returns to his old neighborhood to reunite with his family, but when he’s attacked by a heavily armed local gang and their leader, the deadly, super-powered Bloodletter, will his freedom and his life get cut dramatically short? Meanwhile, Boomerang and the Squad embark on a mission to take down a ruthless dictator within a small, unstable Central American nation, but when the mission goes awry, the Squad must jump in a helicopter and flee as all hell breaks loose. But amid the chaos, the team realizes one of them was accidentally left behind: Boomerang! How can he stay alive long enough to be rescued when a whole army wants him dead?
El Diablo, Azucar and Xolotl fight a Suicide Squad reloaded! ItÕs a bad-guy battle that only gets more complicated when the heroes arrive! El Diablo and his friends barely escape only to be trapped by Deadshot! And, in a tale starring Amanda Waller, the Wall is back in her role as deprogrammer and tasked with cracking a catatonic agent who has vital intel on the SquadÕs current mission. The clock is ticking when Amanda finds herself exposed to a toxin that may take her, and the whole team, down the rabbit hole.
