published 2012

The story begins with the Suicide Squad defeated, imprisoned and being interrogated about their newest mission.  Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot and company must make it out alive without revealing who's pulling the strings behind their illegal operations.  Who will be the first to crack under the pressure?  More importantly will they make it all out alive?

There's a lot going on in this first volume of the New 52's Suicide Squad.  Zombies in a stadium, prison riots, bad guys chasing bad guys for other bad guys....and Harley Quinn's on the loose.

There can't ever be enough Harley Quinn as far as I'm concerned.  She's creepy and crazy and I just love her.  In the last two issues of this volume Harley's escaped from Belle Reve and she's headed to Gotham to find out if what everyone's told her is true.  The Joker's dead and GCPD has his face stored away.

Deadshot and the other members of the Suicide Squad are tasked with bringing her back dead or alive.  Easier said than done for a girl who doesn't have any 'powers'.

It's fun to watch the bad guys not being completely bad.  Plus, there's this never ending pool of villains to grab from so we're exposed to more characters with each mission.  This series is a keeper.
