This Just Happened: A New Killing Game For The New Suicide...

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read NEW SUICIDE SQUAD #18 yet and don’t want to know what happens, stop reading this post now (spoilers ahead!)

If you haven’t been reading the new run of NEW SUICIDE SQUAD by Tim Seeley and Juan Ferreyra, then allow us to tell you the latest story…

Harley Quinn colorfully recaps the tale of her escape (along with El Diablo, Deadshot, and Cheetah) from Task Force X (a team Amanda Waller recruited them for and then implanted a bomb in their necks to keep them in line), with the help of a Belle Reve prison lunch lady turned operative named Marlene and a secret organization called Horus International.

After secretly communicating with the quartet of assassins, Horus International stages the mission to look like the Suicide Squad was "killed in action"—but we know better.

Horus’ leader Adam Reed hides the Squad out in a castle, a stop on the way to get the ticking bombs removed, and the team briefly enjoys their freedom from the US Government. However, things are about to get a whole lot darker.

Because this just happened:

Turns out Mr. Reed had a plan of his own, dragging the team into a deadly game against The Fist Of Cain order. Meanwhile, Amanda Waller discovers that her Task Force X members are still alive!
