With Suicide Squad arriving in cinemas August 5, 2016, DC is making a preemptive strike by having some of their deadliest characters appear in yet another prominent title. This coming January will mark the beginning of the six-issue anthology series titled Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Katana/ Deadshot. DC has provided the first details, which can be found below.
Two of Amanda Waller’s most lethal weapons get their time in the spotlight with this six-issue miniseries coming in January 2016!
In a story written by Brian Buccellato with art by Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend, Deadshot is on the run after escaping Belle Reve Penitentiary, taking on a series of new contracts and reestablishing himself as the world’s deadliest marksman. But things are about to get complicated for Floyd Lawton when a figure from his past threatens to expose a dark secret… and Deadshot gets word of his next target : Lex Luthor!
Writer Mike W. Barr returns to the character he co-created in “Cult of the Kobra,” with art by Diogenes Neves! In this new tale, Katana endeavors to save an entire nation from takeover by the mystical threat of Kobra. But first, she’s going to have to learn the origin of her sword Soultaker, if she’s to maintain control over it instead of falling under its influence.
Sounds pretty cool, huh? Stay tuned to DKN because it shouldn’t be long before more information regarding this title becomes available. Before we part ways, take a look at some artwork from the series.
