Unknown Suicide Squad Millennium art recently discovered
I recently found this art work on DC's wikia page. Although I don't know where this art work originated from I'm always never the less delighted to uncover some Suicide Squad related art from the late 80s and 90s. We see there Rick Flag and Bronze Tiger along with Karen Grace (mission casualty) who's got some some "history" with Flag back from their pre Ostrander Squad days together. There's also The Privateer (a.k.a Mark Shaw), a former manhunter recruited to help Task Force X for the Manhunter Louisiana fortress assault mission (see Millennium week 4, Suicide Squad 8 and 9).
Ok I just wanted to open up this next segment of the posting by saying I was a graphic designer for 10 years so I thought these panels were funny as Hell. Last night I came across this these panels (issue 4) while watching some youtube videos that basically let you read the Suicide Squad Rebirth series in slide show format they have issues 1- 7 so far. Considering how easy it is to read a comic book series these days online I think you must really really want to buy something for the sake of having a hard cover in your collection.
Anyways, this latest Squad series is much of an improvement from what DC came up with when the DCU relaunch first happened not to mention The Squad title reboots prior to Rebirth. This rebirth series is certainly worth taking the time to read on youtube but not worth buying and taking up space at home. It does have it's moments, like Captain Boomerang getting killed in issue 2. Just go to Youtube and paste the following in the search bar...suicide squad rebirth #1. Or start with a later issue but either way after the video finishes it'll go right to what ever the following issue is until you finally reach # 7.

Ha! "Die Graphic Designer, Die!" That is funny. Congrats on finding old-school SS art tho. Still haven't watch the Squad movie. Did you? What did you think?ReplyDelete
Damn dude I was about to ask you what you been smokin but I already know what. But maybe you should cut back a bit you commented on my Squad movie posting back when the movie came out.Delete
Ha ha, yeah, my b. I only mention it bc my sister and her boyfriend recently saw it, and seemed to like it, but hated the Joker parts....that you had to see in the extras section. I wonder whatever happened to the guy in England who sued Warner Bros for the lack of Joker appearances despite what was advertised in the trailer.ReplyDelete
Didn't know about that law suite but I did notice a lot of scenes in the trailers that weren't in the movie which in general I always find quite annoying. Might take a shot at trying to see Rogue 1 this weekend but we'll see how that goes.Delete
Cool, cool. There's a theory going around that the members of Rogue One will be defeated and captured by the Empire and turned into the Knights of Ren. We'll see....ReplyDelete
The art is from the last DC's Who's WhoReplyDelete
Who's Who, well that's interesting you sure about that? please do share with me a link if you happen to know if the Who's Who version is on the internet.Delete
