Well, the DC solicits don’t go live for another hour or so, but DC is giving us a sneak peek at some of the new teams…mostly veteran creators, with new teams for NEW SUICIDE SQUAD, AQUAMAN, and TEEN TITANS starting in February
Kicking things off, NEW SUICIDE SQUAD #17 will be written by Tim Seeley (GRAYSON, BATMAN ETERNAL) and illustrated by Juan Ferreyra (GOTHAM BY MIDNIGHT, BATMAN ETERNAL). These regular Gothamites visit the dark and unspeakably violent world of the Suicide Squad for a thrilling new storyline! We’re excited to see what they bring to the Squad!
Indentured super villain Harley Quinn has made covert contact with someone outside the walls of Belle Reve prison—and this mysterious savior has discovered the secrets of Amanda Waller and Task Force X.
Next, AQUAMAN #49 will be written by Dan Abnett (TITANS HUNT, HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR, EARTH 2: SOCIETY) and illustrated by Vicente Cifuentes (BATMAN/SUPERMAN, CONVERGENCE: JUSTICE LEAGUE). Watch these two make waves with the beginning of a new chapter featuring your Atlantean heroes!
In the aftermath of the Thule invasion, Aquaman must show the people of Atlantis that he was the target of a conspiracy and earn their trust once more. And no, it’s not going to be easy…
Finally, TEEN TITANS #17 will be written by Greg Pak (ACTION COMICS, BATMAN/SUPERMAN) with art by Noel Rodriguez (RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS). The creative team isn’t going to give the Titans a single break. Run for your lives, Titans!
With their backs against the wall, the Titans are wanted across the country! Now, Tim Drake must find a way to clear the team’s name while staying one step ahead of the law. But Wonder Girl’s past is also catching up with her and it won’t wait for the Titans’ troubles to calm down.
