Wednesday DC Entertainment announced and launched a new 12-part Digital First series Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, a sequel story to the upcoming animated film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Written by Jeff Parker (Batman ’66) the series will follow Amanda Waller as she looks for an escape—from death.
The first chapter is available now on digital platforms like ReadDC.com, comiXology.com, Google Play, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook and iTunes. Chapter 1 is illustrated by Matthew Dow Smith, with future chapters from artists Agustin Padilla, Stefano Raffaele and Cat Staggs.
“Our story picks up immediately after the Hell to Pay animated film, and Waller is still on a personal mission to save her soul—and she’s willing to put the Suicide Squad through hell to do it,” explained Parker. “This time, the Squad goes way out of their element and around the world to face supernatural and ancient forces—and yes, Harley is in there too!”
According to DCE, "Amanda Waller’s Task Force X has completed another mission—and in her opinion, the prize was worth the price they paid. But with the Spectre closing in to take Waller’s soul, she must find a new means of escaping death. Now looking to Jason Blood as a possible ally, Waller may face a revolt from her own team for this latest addition to the Squad. Is membership in the Suicide Squad really better than imprisonment at Belle Reve?"
Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay is the next animated film in the ongoing series of DC Universe Movies from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The new, original story finds Amanda Waller’s top secret “Task Force X” on a mission to retrieve a mystical object so powerful that they’re willing to risk their own lives to steal it. It arrives March 27 on Digital and April 10 on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.
