With the Suicide Squad movie arriving in just a few days, DC Comics expects interest in members of the team to be at an all time high. Next week, Suicide Squad Most Wanted: El Diablo and Boomerang #1 arrives in stores, and we have a sneak peek of the issue, after the jump.
SUICIDE SQUAD MOST WANTED: EL DIABLO AND BOOMERANG #1
Writer: Michael Moreci, Jai Nitz
Artist: Oscar Bazaldua, Cliff Richards
From the pages of SUICIDE SQUAD comes an all-new series featuring two of the team’s most infamous heroes, El Diablo and Boomerang! First, a sudden pardon frees the fiery El Diablo from Belle Reve prison, much to the shock (and irritation) of team leader Amanda Waller. Chato returns to his old neighborhood to reunite with his family, but when he’s attacked by a heavily armed local gang and their leader, the deadly, super-powered Bloodletter, will his freedom and his life get cut dramatically short?
Meanwhile, in the first chapter of two-part tale written by Michael Moreci (from DC’s Writers Workshop program) with art by Oscar Bazaldua, Boomerang and the Squad embark on a mission to take down a ruthless dictator within a small, unstable Central American nation, but when the mission goes awry, the Squad must jump in a helicopter and flee as all hell breaks loose. But amid the chaos, the team realizes one of them was accidentally left behind: Boomerang! How can he stay alive long enough to be rescued when a whole army wants him dead?
Suicide Squad Most Wanted: El Diablo and Boomerang #1 arrives on August 10th.
