After announcing that Jim Lee was scaling back his plans to draw Suicide Squad as originally solicited, the publisher has revealed the artist who'll be part of Suicide Squad #2: Ivan Reis.
Reis will be illustrating a seven-page back-up story in Suicide Squad #2 titled "Captain Boomerang: Agent of Oz," written by series writer Rob Williams.
"In 'Captain Boomerang: Agent of Oz,' Amanda Waller digs deep into the implausibly impressive origins of the Suicide Squad's most loathsome member to discover the truth the world has been asking for: just who made Boomerang a captain anyway?"
Williams and Lee's lead story will be 13 pages.
The issue is scheduled for release September 14. Here is the original solicitation:
SUICIDE SQUAD #2
Written by ROB WILLIAMS
Art and cover by JIM LEE and SCOTT WILLIAMS
Variant cover by LEE BERMEJO
Retailers: This issue will ship with two covers. Please see the order form for details.
“THE BLACK VAULT” part 2! What was meant to be a routine mission to retrieve a “cosmic item” from an undersea fortress has become a nightmare beyond anything the Suicide Squad ever expected. And with half the team down, it’s up to Harley Quinn, Katana, and a demon-possessed graphic designer named June Moore to save the Squad from the most dangerous man in the DC Universe. That’s right...they’re screwed.
