"DC finally doing justice with The Suicide Squad"

Left click to enlarge
The last comment left on the previous posting seemed like a good title for today's posting although really I won't know for sure until I see this movie in full. But A big thanks to everyone who gave me a heads up on this. I've really enjoyed many of DC's animated movies even though I don't like what DC has in print these days let's hope this is the latest good one. We've had snippets of Suicide Squad related stuff in previous DC movies but this is the first full on appearance as far as I know and although I'm not a big Arrow fan all this new Squad stuff we've been seeing is a clear indication that Task Force X is making some bigger inroads in not just DC but to the general public as well.
Needless to say there's a number of other Squad favorites that I would like to see here but if the writing is good this could still work out well. As soon as I can find a copy I'll no doubt post a review. Rather at a Big Box store or like a used record/DVD/CD store I've always been able to get these movies for between $10 - $15 but I'm willing to pay a little more for this one just to find out if it's any good. Again thanks for the heads up on this let me return the favor by sharing something Suicide Squad related that's kinda cool too

New fan art of the Amanda Waller that we used to know

Just found this awesome piece by chance from an artist who also hates the skinny Waller and has stated that she refuses to ever draw her that way  . . .
Also, you can see more fan art that's popped up this year for The Wall by doing an Amanda Waller key word search on deviant art. It's kinda funny you can always get an idea about how old someone is by finding out what turned em on to this character I've been coming across more and more people who discovered Waller from the Justice League Unlimited cartoon or from some kind of DC online gaming media. Suffice it to say those fans are usually much younger then the old school Waller fans who discovered her back during the Legends mini-series and the Ostrander Squad era.

Finally, John Ostrander speaks up about the rebooted Waller

This is Amanda Waller, accept no substitute!
"I don’t control what happens with Waller or where she goes or how she looks; she is owned by DC Entertainment and Warners. I knew that going in. She is their property. That said, I think the changes made in her appearance are misguided. There were and are reasons why she looked the way she did. I wanted her to seem formidable and visually unlike anyone else out there. Making her young and svelte and sexy loses that. She becomes more like everyone else. She lost part of what made her unique."

Special thanks to K.oT. for bringing this to my attention. For the the entire article

Conjugal visits

I have to admit that was a pretty good line. Alright let's give it a second look what the Hell day and time does this show come on?

As something of a follow up to K.o.T's War of the Genders posting which includes the clip art above here's a nice panel from Suicide Squad 58 in which after a brief skirmish Amanda Waller agrees to help Black Adam assault Circe's island strong hold which has an army of amazonian like woman warriors and some kind of werewolf beasts.

The attack commences later in the issue and concludes as the island under goes some sort of earthquake which cuts short the battle. War of the Gods 3 doesn't have a whole lot of Suicide Squad action in it despite them being pretty prominently represented on the cover art but it does include more Squad casualties. Here's the total body count from a posting a while back compliments of Siskoids Blog of Geekery

Straight outta New Zealand some new Squad fan art

Thanks Dan I know you worked a long time to finally get this done I'm really glad to be finally show casing it here. I think you got all the character's personalities down pretty good here I especially like how Waller looks so ominous. Also nice going on having Diablo on the Ostrander era Squad he was one of the few things I liked about the New 52 Squad. And also thanks for quite literally leaving Harley Quinn out of the picture I've long since O.D.d on Harley with the Suicide Squad.

FINALY! some new group shot art of the REAL Suicide Squad

What a breath of fresh air this is! Some brand new Suicide Squad fan art that has nothing to do with the WW II version, or Harley Quinn or any other aspect of the New DCU. I just found this only a few hours ago on apparently it's a commission piece done by Steve Erwin. This guy is good I've featured his stuff here at least once before.
On a separate matter here I found this over at the Firestorm blog yesterday. I think it's much to do about nothing but still worth having a look at if your a Suicide Squad fan
