“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). 

After that bombshell of a first issue, I'm glad to see this new team...which is really just an old iteration of the team, with a new writer and artist(s)...in action! Really, the Rebirth issue was a story well-told and I hope that trend continues here. Sure, it's the same characters from the Suicide Squad movie, but it's also many of the same characters we know and love! Or tolerate. Begrudgingly accept? This comic book is going to be a big deal, you should keep an eye out for it!
