With a big-budget movie about their villainous hijinx hitting screens just around the corner, DC seems pretty keen to get people hyped up about the Suicide Squad, and you have to admit that publisher is doing everything it can to get people to jump on. There's the New 52 run ready to go, reprints of the classic '80s series in paperback --- all the way up to the original Deadshot miniseries --- and  the next issue of the current New Suicide Squad series sees a new creative team kicking things off with a tour of Belle Reeve prison, so that we can all get on the same page with how this stuff works.

The team in question is Tim Seeley and Juan Ferreyra, and in New Suicide Squad #17, they've hit on a pretty interesting way of explaining the concept for new readers that hasn't actually been done before: Task Force X is franchising. Check out a preview below!
