By 1987, The Suicide Squad was little more than an interesting name with a largely forgotten history in DC Comics. But, an influx of talent and ideas from the thriving “Independent” smaller comic book companies took that idea and created an influential and highly entertaining team of villains fighting and dying in a moral grey area. John Ostrander, Kimberly Yale, and Luke McDonnell’s Suicide Squad provides insights on the maturing of comics, the impact of the independent companies, the slowly growing diversity of comic characters, and much more all in a fast paced, exhilarating comic series.
While we prepare for discussion questions, polls and a quiz in April, we need your help now. What issues or story arcs are must reads from the Ostrander Suicide Squad run and why? Let us know below and we’ll develop a short “suggested reading” list and a longer “deep-dive” list when we fully launch on April 1st.
