With the recent announcement of the Suicide Squad movie cast, excitement is higher than ever for DC Comics’ ragtag group of supervillains taking on seemingly impossible black ops missions in order to commute their sentences. Fittingly, they have launched New Suicide Squad, written by Sean Ryan and illustrated by Rob Hunter, to keep building on that excitement all the way into 2016.
When we last left the madcap maniacs of Task Force X (the official name of the Suicide Squad), they were deep undercover in China in order to prevent the government from creating and militarizing an army of lab-grown metahumans. Naturally, things took a turn for the worse and our anti-heroes find themselves squaring off with the monstrous creatures. Can they plant the charges to detonate the facility and escape with their body parts intact? Only time will tell.
Fortunately, you won’t have to wait until Wednesday, January 14 to find out. We have an exclusive preview of the metahuman mayhem coming your way in DC Comics’ New Suicide Squad #6.
Here’s the official synopsis.
“Harley Quinn takes center stage! The Squad’s mission to China has gone to hell – and now an army of unstable super beings is trying to murder them and anything else that stands in their way!”
