After Deadshot discovers a shocking secret about his daughter, he's forced to go toe to toe against the Suicide Squad-and their newest member! Meanwhile, the mysterious strangers who stepped between Katana and certain death reveal themselves! And while the Suicide Squad may not have heard of the Soultaker, their handler Amanda Waller wants to make sure that Katana is free only as long as she's helping them take down Kobra!
The new miniseries continues with Killer Croc! Double-crossed by his friends, El Diablo is saved from capture by the mysterious heroine known as Azucar, who convinces the skeptical Chato Santana to accompany her to Gotham City to unravel the mystery that has put him in the crosshairs of both Checkmate and the Suicide Squad. But can they survive against those two super-teams as well as Gotham City's greatest villains and its most notorious hero? And in the first chapter of a two-part Killer Croc tale written by Chris Sebela (alumnus of DC's Writers Workshop program), Croc takes off on a solo mission to an island inhabited by mindless monsters, which makes him the brainiest of the bunch! But can he find the line between humanity and monstrosity before all-out war erupts?
Kobra has taken advantage of Katana and the Suicide Squad's attack on his base to assault the capital and imprison Prince Brion of Markovia! As king, he can set his endgame into motion but Katana is sure that he's playing a double game! And in 'Deadshot,' Floyd Lawton is out-and Will Evans is in! But how will Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang and the rest of the Squad respond to the new Deadshot? And is this truly the end of Floyd Lawton's story?
Gotham City is full of surprises, and as El Diablo delves deeper into the mystery surrounding CheckmateÕs agenda, he learns there are villains in town who aim to shut him up for good. But when the villains of Gotham City show up, their most infamous protector wonÕt be far behind. Plus, Croc finds himself in an underground laboratory filled with monsters, with no way out and no way to contact Amanda Waller. But whoÕs the real monster in this equation? He may need more than just his brawn to keep the biggest and baddest of the islandÕs mutated beasts from destroying the world!
After Will Evans murders his own teammate, Floyd Lawton escapes Belle Reve and takes the fight straight to the impostor! But which Deadshot will survive? Meanwhile, Katana is proven right as KobraÕs hidden plan is revealed-but no one could have anticipated what will happen when the villainÕs plot is overturned. Is the Suicide Squad prepared to deal with a rogue Aurakle?
Katana has done her best to prepare her Markovian friends for Kobra's occupation, and now it's time to search for Doctor Jace. Finding her way through a mountain pass full of Kobra's Blackadder troops proves to be a bigger challenge than she expected-especially when she cannot go it alone! Meanwhile, Deadshot abandons his post with the Suicide Squad to deal with some long overdue family business. Will Floyd finish the job before Amanda Waller detonates his nano-bomb?
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!
