We’re less than a week away from the release of the highly anticipated supervillain team-up film, Suicide Squad. What would a movie based on comic books be, without some reading material to accompany it? Here are some books that could help you get ready for the David Ayer entry in the DC universe featuring the best of the worst.
Suicide Squad: Rebirth #1 written by Rob Williams, with art by Philip Tan, Jonathan Glapion, Scott Hanna, Sandu Florea and Alex Sinclair. Follows Rick Flag’s return to service despite the President’s reluctance to approve Amanda Waller’s Task Force X, a group of criminals sent in by the government to handle matters in a way the Justice League would likely disapprove of.
Harley Quinn: Rebirth #1 written Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, with art by Chad Hardin and covers by Amanda Conner, and Bill Sienkiewicz. Picking up right where we left off, Harley is smack dab in the middle of her crazy world on Coney Island where she’ll have to protect the neighborhood from flesh eating zombies!
