Suicide Squad Vol. 1: The Black Vault (Rebirth)
Harley Quinn. Deadshot. Killer Croc. Enchantress. Captain Boomerang. Katana. They’re dangerous. They’re deadly. They’re deeply unstable. And they’re our only hope. They’re the characters from the smash-hit film and they’re here in this great new starting-point graphic novel, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1: THE BLACK VAULT, as part of DC Rebirth!
 
Assembled by the tough-as-nails intelligence expert Amanda Waller and overseen by disgraced military genius Captain Rick Flag, the men, women and monsters of the Suicide Squad—a.k.a. Task Force X—do the jobs that are too dirty for any superheroes to soil their capes with.
 
Their latest mission should be easy enough: recover a powerful cosmic weapon called the Black Vault from enemy hands. The Suicide Squad always gets the job done (mostly) but this time, when the weapon's dark influence spreads and the team is driven to madness and mayhem (more than usual), there's only one person sane enough to save the Squad from destruction…the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn!
 
Legendary artist Jim Lee teams up with writer Rob Williams and artists Philip Tan, Jason Fabok, Ivan Reis and Gary Frank for a new deadly Task Force X mission in SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1: THE BLACK VAULT! Exploding from the pages of DC’s blockbuster Rebirth event and starring the characters you love and hate from the smash-hit movie, this graphic novel is a great jumping-on point for new readers! Collects issues #1-4 and the SUICIDE SQUAD: REBIRTH one-shot.

Bursting from DC’s blockbuster Rebirth event, the saga of the world’s most dangerous super-team continues in SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 3: BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE! Uniting acclaimed writer Rob Williams with superstar artists John Romita Jr. and Eddy Barrows, this volume also includes a bonus tale of international intrigue from legendary SUICIDE SQUAD writer John Ostrander and artist Gus Vazquez!
 
Deep within the world is a hidden flame—an inferno of hatred and vengeance that consumes everything it touches. In the aftermath of the war between the Suicide Squad and the Justice League, one of Amanda Waller’s greatest foes has seized that flame, and now he’s going to use it to burn down everything she holds dear—starting with her home base, the Belle Reve Penitentiary.
 
The result is one of the Squad’s greatest challenges yet: holding together as a unit while fighting to keep their fellow super-villains behind bars. When faced with the chance to escape Waller’s control, however, one member of the team will seize the opportunity—and launch a bloody betrayal in the process.
 
Can an enraged Harley Quinn track down the traitor—and take down the mastermind behind the mutiny—before Task Force X is terminally disbanded?

Suicide Squad Vol. 2: Going Sane (Rebirth) (DC Universe Rebirth: Suicide Squad)
Exploding from DC’s blockbuster Rebirth event, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 2: GOING SANE by writer Rob Williams and legendary artist Jim Lee delivers the thrilling conclusion to one of Task Force X’s greatest missions.
 
As the go-to team tasked with handling the world’s most top secret threats, the Suicide Squad has faced down terrors across the globe. But they’ve never brought their work home with them—until now.
 
Under the command of Task Force X’s iron-fisted director Amanda Waller, the Squad has “liberated” a strange extradimensional orb known as the Black Vault from the planet’s most secure incarceration facility—at the cost of one disintegrated team member. What’s inside the eerie black sphere? None other than Kryptonian dictator General Zod, in all his megalomaniacal, world-destroying glory.
 
Now Waller has to figure out what to do with one of the most dangerous entities in the known universe. In theory, whoever controls Zod controls the world. In practice, the Black Vault’s corrupting energies are already eroding the sanity of everyone in the Squad’s HQ—with the sole exception of the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn!
 
But can one newly sane psychologist single-handedly stop the madness of the Black Vault, defeat Zod and keep the Suicide Squad from ultimately living up to its name?
 
From writer Rob Williams and superstar artist Jim Lee, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 2: GOING SANE includes stories illustrated by Stephen Bryne, Carlos D’Anda, Christian Ward, Giuseppe Camuncoli and more! Collects SUICIDE SQUAD #5-8 and the HARLEY QUINN AND THE SUICIDE SQUAD APRIL FOOLS’ SPECIAL one-shot.
