Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo reunite for new “Suicide Squad” ongoing this December

The Suicide Squad is one of DC Comics’ most recognizable properties, so when the series came to an end earlier this year, it seemed like only a matter of time until they came back.

And boy, are they coming back strong.

This December, Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo-- who made Injustice 2 one of the best all-around “DC Universe”-focused books, with tons of heart and brilliant characterizations-- will reunite for a new ongoing series featuring the Squad. With a crew comprised of some familiar faces and brand new characters in equal measure, Taylor promises that the group will live up to its name, as there will be casualties right out of the gate.

Besides a real sense of danger, some of the characters that will be part of the team are just… delightful. Magpie? Cavalier? Zebra Man?! Just give me this book already.

Check out the details below, including a look at Ivan Reis and Joe Prado’s cover.

TASK FORCE X RETURNS IN A NEW SUICIDE SQUAD ONGOING SERIES THIS DECEMBER

Bestselling INJUSTICE 2 Team of Writer Tom Taylor and Artist Bruno Redondo Reunite for the Wildest Version of the Squad Yet

BURBANK, CA – (September 10, 2019) – The unlikeliest villains in the DC Universe are back in their grittiest incarnation yet as DC today announced plans for an all-new SUICIDE SQUAD ongoing series scheduled for December.

This new version of Task Force X is already full of changes, with new villains—any of whom could die on a mission or be dispatched by an all-new and mysterious leader who has replaced Amanda Waller. This Squad’s new mission is to neutralize a new group of international super-terrorists known as the Revolutionaries—and not everyone on either side will make it out alive! But when the U.S. government’s most deniable team of antiheroes realizes that the surviving Revolutionaries will be joining the Squad, that’s when the fireworks really begin!

According to an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, writer Tom Taylor talks about just how much he’s raising the stakes in this new series: “Truly, no one is safe, there’s a new regime, and this regime sees this team as assets and nothing more. They don’t care if they lose them in the field, they can always get more, and they DO get more.”

When DC’s most desperate villains are combined with new inmates of Belle Reve that Task Force X has been trying to kill, who can Harley Quinn and Deadshot trust? These misfits not only have to worry about surviving their next mission, but each other as well.

“Bruno and I have been working together for around eight years and he’s one of my favorite artists in the world,” said Taylor. “We speak the same storytelling language and we have the same storytelling values. Getting to create all new characters with Bruno for DC is a bit of a dream.”

The 40-page, $4.99 debut issue of Suicide Squad is scheduled to release December 18, 2019, written by Tom Taylor with art by Bruno Redondo, cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado, and variant cover by Francesco Mattina.

Suicide Squad #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on December 18.
