Task Force Z #1 Preview: Who Thought Death Could be Less Meaningful?

Friday Night Previews continues on Bleeding Cool, wherein your pal Jude Terror enhances previews of all the Marvel and DC comics coming out each week with contractually obligated SEO-keyword-rich pithy comments and potentially misleading clickbait headlines to bring them up to standards with the rest of Bleeding Cool's content. Task Force Z #1 is in stores from DC Comics on Tuesday, kind of an opposite Suicide Squad, because all the villains on this team are dead, and if they get out of the Suicide Squad, they get to live again. Which just cements a fact about comics: you aren't anyone if you haven't died and come back at least once! Task Forze Z could be these B-list villains' ticket to the A-list! Check out a preview below.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
