This last volume of Ostrander’s Suicide Squad collects issues #59-#66. Between Superman breathing down their necks and a trek through a nightmarish jungle, the stakes are appropriately high for the Squad.
Volume seven of Suicide Squad collects issues #50-#58. It’s the penultimate chapter in this series, so there are tons of fun callbacks to earlier issues. In fact, we get the return of the original Squad members from Suicide Squad #1.
The Squad’s existence is revealed, Waller takes her power game to the next level, and Oracle gets her first “appearance” in Suicide Squad #23. What else could possibly happen for our band of misfit metahumans?
This month, I’ll be reading issues #9-#16 (Volume two for you trade-paperback readers). If you’re as excited as I am, then I encourage you to read along and geek out with me. Issue #9 has a lot going on, so let’s jump right into it!
2016’s Suicide Squad was one of the worst modern superhero films I’ve ever seen. So why am I excited for 2021’s The Suicide Squad? Because it’s directed by James Gunn, the man responsible for one of my favorite Marvel movies: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)!
