2016 is the year of the Suicide Squad. Not only are they getting a big screen “adaptation”, but now DC Comics has announced that two of its deadliest members will be getting their very own double sized six issue anthology style mini-series in January. Check out that gorgeous Cary Nord cover!
Deadshot is on the run after breaking out of Belle Reve Penitentiary, and he’s looking to reclaim his title of the world’s greatest assassin by taking on new contracts. But things get messy for Floyd Lawton as someone from his past is threatening to divulge a dark secret, and Deadshot finds that his next target is none other than Lex Luther in a story by Brian Buccellato with art by Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend.
And in a story by Katana’s original creator, Mike W. Barr, the deadly bladesmith must save an entire nation from the clutches of Kobra, but first must learn the origin of her sword, Soultaker, if she’s to continue controlling it. Barr is accompanied by artist Diogenes Neves.
