New homage fan art from sketch to completion

I'm going to update this posting in light of the comments I've gotten so far about this fan art. DC, if you're reading this (which I seriously doubt) I want you to know that the key to the long term success for this title is to somehow start bringing the original Squad back into the fold in the near future. You guys have done a pretty good job so far and this book passed it's first major hurtle by not being one of the 52 cancellations a couple of months ago. Heed my words Adam Glass and DC! relaunch and all there are many who will never feel like this is REALLY the Suicide Squad with out key characters like Rick Flag, Bronze Tiger and Boomerang. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

  1. Nice one mr! Now this is the Squad - attribute the whirl effect background to Vertigo or Nightshade and it's a 'Suicide Squad Rebirth' print just waiting to happen!

    1. thanks mate, but think of the whirl as more of a bunch of people in a whirl pool . . of blood.

    6. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I hope they heard it because this is the real Squad without a doubt. even if he brought them in for the duration of a story arch then rotate to another original member would be better than not having them at all.

    2. Yeah, like the others have been saying, nice art man.

      We're all in aggreance on this one; DC needs to bring back the old school, original 'Squad. The problems being that either DC's not getting enough demands brought to their attention, or that just don't care. I'll take either one I guess, it's all unacceptable. I feel from a business stand point, this incarnation of the SS wouldn't stay of the chopping block for long, but if the old SS were to in fact be brought back, and possibly add Gail Simone as co-writer, the book will see sales surge. but that's just my opinion.

    3. thanks Dale on the art compliment. yeah it's hard to say what the thinking is at DC. we can be certain of one thing that they don't give a shit about the Harley Quinn costume bruhaha which i think is cool. i have a suspicion that they might be bringing in the originals on a gradual basis but only time will tell. hopefully not too much time it's not like this book comes out every two weeks.

  3. Just in case you forget to read my response to your quote, you know, like old times.

    You liked that one huh? Just saying maybe having Spider-Man debate who gets to screw MJ, while Black Spidey mentions he prefers Anal was perhaps going a little too raunchy. Trust me, the first bit of dialogue I wrote was even worse.

    Different Jokers Ben. Mine is the Batman:Legacy Golden Age Joker. It's all I had to choose from since I skipped out on the MA one, which I know regret, but it all worked out in the end.

    As for hating GL, I hear you, but I am liking where Johns is finally going with the Indigo Tribe(which reminds of a bad Indigo Girls Lesbo joke) and how they're really connected to Abin Sur. Not to mention the Black Hand's gonna
    be back and very pissed off!

    Other than that, well On the whole(ha ha) I can't stand any of the other NuDCu titles or the NuDcU-verse. I've said countless times before, and I haven't changed my mind.

    As for the skit of Batman knocking out head-injury prone Hal, sure why not. I have a Guy figure as well so I could easily throw him into the mix as well, I'll do just for you, how about that?

    1. that would be great thanks! no hurry though just whenever you get around to it. speaking of raunchy that whole Spider anal man bit is nothing compared to this. you can if you want to but you don't even need to look past the masthead. the guy who runs this blog is from France and his previous version of this blog got yanked from blogger for being too over the top: http://porky-bacon.blogspot.com/

  4. Well I went there..and now I wish I hadn't. Thanks for making me feel better though, and or reminding myself that I'm really quite tame compared to some of the more extreme persuasion out there. Yuck!

  5. You know what I like best? Aside from your usual beautiful artwork. The little splotches of blood in the whirlies. I really like that. Good on you mate. And the comments are dead on too. Get it? Dead on. Hee. Okay, I obviously need more sleep.
