Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, the latest in Warner Bros. Home Entertainments long-running slate of original DC Comics films, will hit digital release next Tuesday, March 27. Starring Vanessa Williams as Amanda Waller, Christian Slater as Deadshot, and Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, the film will see Task Force X embark on another mission where the risks no doubt far outweigh the rewards. It’s… just kind of what they do.
And also Bronze Tiger is there. Aww yeah.
Before it’s even had a public release, though, the movie already has a sequel by way of a new digital-first comic series. That’s pretty bold, to say the least, but with Batman ’66 mastermind Jeff Parker writing a story where the Spectre comes a-knocking for Amanda Waller’s soul? You certainly have my attention.
THERE IS HELL TO PAY IN THIS NEW SUICIDE SQUAD COMIC SERIES,
AND IT BEGINS RIGHT NOW
Today, DC kicks off a brand-new Digital First series with SUICIDE SQUAD: HELL TO PAY, a sequel story to the upcoming animated film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The comic series from writer Jeff Parker (BATMAN ’66) will follow Amanda Waller as she looks for an escape—from death. The first chapter is available now.
“Our story picks up immediately after the Hell to Pay animated film, and Waller is still on a personal mission to save her soul—and she’s willing to put the Suicide Squad through hell to do it,” says Parker. “This time, the Squad goes way out of their element and around the world to face supernatural and ancient forces—and yes, Harley is in there too!”
Amanda Waller’s Task Force X has completed another mission—and in her opinion, the prize was worth the price they paid. But with the Spectre closing in to take Waller’s soul, she must find a new means of escaping death. Now looking to Jason Blood as a possible ally, Waller may face a revolt from her own team for this latest addition to the Squad. Is membership in the Suicide Squad really better than imprisonment at Belle Reve?
The weekly series will run for 12 chapters, written by Jeff Parker, beginning with illustrations from Matthew Dow Smith, with future chapters from artists Agustin Padilla, Stefano Raffaele and Cat Staggs.
