Suicide Squad: Casualties of War – 29th June, 2021

From prolific writer and comics creator Keith Giffen, comes his imagining of DC Universe's deadliest team. As former members of the Injustice Gang are given a chance for freedom, they jump at the chance for suicide. After the ruins of "Our Worlds at War", Sgt. Rock–now a general–is back in action to lead the Squad to justice, or to death. After the atrocities, the question remains: how can the new leader come up with a plan to take on a biological weapon that's gone out of control? This is just the beginning of political intrigue and corporate deceptions from LexCorp all the way to the Presidency. In "Casualties of War" everyone loves an island party; unfortunately the Squad just got caught crashing. Now these crafty convicts must pool their dwindling resources and figure out how to defeat an attacking populace that can't be killed. Uncover who is really behind this new Suicide Squad? Can Rock's hastily formed squad of Deadshot, Killer Frost, Major Disaster, Reactron, and Blackstarr stop trying to kill each other long enough to prevent the strange landlords from closing the doors on our entire planet? With flashback sequences and guest stars, the Suicide Squad wraps up its tour of duty in the deadliest ways possible and truly lives up to its name. Collects Suicide Squad #1-12.
