Suicide Squad Annual #1 hits your local comic book store on August 22, but thanks to DC Comics, Monkeys Fighting Robots has a five-page exclusive preview for you to check out.
The book is written by Cullen Bunn, with art by Ronan Cliquet. Mick Gray and Paul Pelletier worked on the Swamp Thing cover.
About the Suicide Squad Annual #1 :
Thrown together to apprehend an escaped inmate, Solomon Grundy, Rag Doll and Merlyn head into the muck surrounding Belle Reve, but no one is prepared for a meeting with the Swamp Thing. Bodies decay quickly in the bayous of Louisiana, and the avatar of the Green doesn’t care if the Squad makes it out alive.
Bunn is on fire when it comes to writing horror, so to give him the setting of Belle Reve Prison and Swamp Thing, is like lobbing a ball over the plate for Babe Ruth. The first five pages are dark, bloody, and horrifying. With 48 pages, I can only imagine how good the book gets when the Swamp Thing shows up.
Check out the preview below:
