John Ostrander, Kim Yale and Luke McDonnell's run on Suicide Squad in the late '80s is one of my all-time favorite comics, and has a pretty legitimate claim on being the best team book that DC ever published. In the wake of Crisis on Infin
It's been over a week since DC Comics announced any creative team changes on their New 52 superhero line, so we were pretty much overdue when the publisher's The Source blog announced several pencil artists coming and going in a series of posts Thursday. The affected books are Animal Man, Birds of Pre
Just when you think things couldn't get more ridiculous for hammer-wielding Juggalette Suicide Squad member Harley Quinn, along comes the recent Suicide Squad #3 from writer Adam Glass and artist Cliff Richards, where Harley has sex with Deadshot in a bathroom and apparently compares her own vagina to a clown car.One of the most noticeable things abo

I'll be honest with you: I'm probably about as far from the target audience DC's going for with the new Suicide Squad #1 that came out this week.

Q: Did comics shape your politics at all? For example, Messner-Loeb's Flash run taught adolescent me that it's ok to be gay. --dustc
