Key Issue Notes
First appearance of the new Suicide Squad
Death of Blockbuster
This comic right here, holds the first appearance of the new Suicide Squad team. This is the incarnation that we will all be seeing on the silver screen in the next couple weeks.
After the events in Crisis on Infintite Earths, DC gave John Ostrander the task of revamping the Suicide Squad from it's four hero, Mission Impossible style team, to the super villain, anti-hero team that we know it to be today.
Ostrander came up with the idea of a government work release program for the super villains of the world. They would work highly secret, black ops missions to reduce time from their sentences, if they survived that is. This also explained why super villains were always seeming to "escape" from prison and return to their lives of crime.
|Death of Blockbuster|
There aren't an a ton of graded copies listed on the CGC census. To date, there are only 1025 copies. But, of those copies, almost half of them are graded 9.8 NM/M and 3/4 of them are between grades 9.4 NM and 9.8 NM/M. To say there is an abundance of high grade copies out there is an understatement. However, if you like autographed comics, there are 60 Signature Series copies out there as well.
