New creative teams for “Teen Titans” and “New Suicide Squad” announced

Following some shake-ups, new creative teams have been announced for New Suicide Squad and Teen Titans.

And Aquaman, I guess, but we don’t cover that.

First up is New Suicide Squad, with the new team of writer Tim Seeley (Grayson) and penciler Juan Ferreyra (Batman Eternal, Gotham by Midnight) joining on February’s issue #17.  Grayson is widely acknowledged as being one of the best books DC is putting out, and Ferreyra’s work garnered a passionate fan base on Gotham by Midnight, so hopefully this team will bring some life to the book.

The solicitation for the February issue:

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.

Teen Titans, meanwhile, will also get a new team with February’s #17: Greg Pak (Batman/Superman) on writing duties and Noel Rodriguez (Red Hood and the Outlaws) as the illustrator.

That solicitation:

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.

We’ll keep you updated on any further shake-ups on Batbooks.  In the meantime, what are your thoughts on this announcement?
