 PEACEMAKER: DISTURBING THE PEACE 

The breakout character from The Suicide Squad gets his own tale of peace ahead of the upcoming HBO Max show!

Readers can take a deep dive into the backstory of the World’s Greatest Peace Enthusiast in this special one shot from the legendary Gath Ennis (PREACHER, THE BOYS), with art by Garry Brown (DC HORROR PRESENTS THE CONJURING: THE LOVER) . Long before joining Task Force X, Christopher Smith, code name Peacemaker, meets with a psychiatrist—a woman dangerously obsessed with his bizarre and violent past.
