Media Release — With SUICIDE SQUAD #5 on Final Order Cutoff this week, DC reveals the backup story for this issue of the red-hot series!
She saved the Squad’s bacon in the Black Vault, but who is Hack? Where did she come from? And why is she such a Harley Quinn fangirl? Discover the secrets of the Suicide Squad’s newest recruit in this crucial tale by series writer Rob Williams and red-hot artist Stephen Byrne (GREEN ARROW).
And in the lead story, written by Rob Williams with art by Jim Lee and Scott Williams, “The Black Vault” continues! In part five, Amanda Waller needs Kryptonite, and only Lex Luthor has it! But for the Metropolis mastermind, a deal like this won’t be cheap-or easy. It’s a war on two fronts as Waller leads a smoldering charm offensive in the Lexcorp penthouse while the Suicide Squad attacks the most heavily guarded subbasement on the entire planet.
This issue features a cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams and an open to order variant cover by Lee Bermejo.
SUICIDE SQUAD #5 (AUG160251 – AUG160252) is on Final Order Cutoff on October 3 with an in store date of October 26.
