A day after announcing a new Teen Titans #1 with a new creative team to launch in July 2014, DC Comics today announced that Suicide Squad will also get a July relaunch, under the title New Suicide Squad from Sean Ryan and Jeremy Roberts.
The new series features a revamped lineup, with the cover showing Joker’s Daughter (she seriously needs a different name to refer to her as), Deathstroke, and Black Manta all standing behind the kneeling and chained up Harley Quinn, Amanda Waller, and Deadshot.
In an announcement interview with IGN, artist Jeremy Roberts didn’t reveal much about the new lineup, aside from saying how much fun he’s having drawing Harley, Deathstroke, and Deadshot, and promising a “great jumping-on point.” IGN also revealed that the team’s first mission would take place in Russia, and that Waller (somewhat obviously, from the cover), no longer has the “autonomy” and force of A.R.G.U.S. behind her.
