Bienvenido to Week Dos of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 and the excitement keeps building.
With the second full week of releases of DC Comics-The New 52 coming out tomorrow, more and more previews continue to roll out.
TV GUIDE MAGAZINE has the first exclusive look at SUICIDE SQUAD #1. “Espionage is not pretty, it's not martinis and tuxedos, it's usually down and dirty,” series writer Adam Glass (Supernatural) told them.
When a mysterious metahuman named Jenny Blitz saves The Ravager and its crew from a fleet of enemy ships, Deathstroke takes her aboard. As the crew learns of their captain’s plans of splitting the treasure they’re looking for with Jenny, they decide to break out into mutiny.

In the second issues of the “Edge” group books, the odds are not in our protagonists’ favor. In DEATHSTROKE, MEN OF WAR and ALL-STAR WESTERN, new villains will be revealed. Grifter and Voodoo are on the run while Stormwatch, the Blackhawks, O.M.A.C. and the Suicide Squad must fight battles that’ll have grave consequences.
While en route to an undisclosed location in Norway, The Ravager is attacked by Aquaman and his army. As his crew is brutally massacred before his eyes, Deathstroke must struggle to fight for his own life before continuing the hunt for his treasure. And with the influx of enemies continuing to roll in, Deathstroke might require a little help to get his mission back on track. But who will be the one providing it?
Fresh off of his stint as co-writer of BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM, Kyle Higgins will be taking full reign as the writer of DEATHSTROKE, beginning this September. NEWSARAMA has the exclusive first interview with him about the project. So how would Kyle describe Deathstroke?
“He's at a level where, to him, it's all kind of a game. Life, the world, etc., is there to be played. And killing and doing what he does for his legacy or his reputation – that's the absolute most important thing to him. Family dies, friends disappoint, but legacy is forever,” he told NEWSARAMA.
