Suicide Squad, Volume 2: Basilisk Rising


Title: Suicide Squad, Volume 2: Basilisk Rising
Author: Adam Glass (Author), Dan Abnett (Writer), Andy Lanning (Writer), Fernando Dagnino (Illustrator), Federico Dallocchio (Illustrator), Jesus Saiz (Illustrator), Andres Guinaldo (Illustrator), Mark Irwin (Illustrator), Christian Alamy (Illustrator), Cliff Richards (Illustrator)
Rating: ★★★★

Supervillains recruited from prison, sent on covert missions and injected with a nanite bomb so we stay in line. A bad deal.

At the end of the last installment, Harley Quinn ditched the squad for the chance to see her “Puddin”. Deadshot was tasked with bringing her back to the Squad.

There is a traitor in the Suicide Squad, but who is it? The person’s task is to expose the Squad and kill Amanda Waller. Regulus, leader of the Basilisks, has sent one of his own to infiltrate the Suicide Squad. But, is it just a distraction or does he really want them gone?

Along the way, members of the same Squad are tasked with betraying one another…sometimes leading to death. An old member returns and at least another leaves? Who is the impostor? Who has surprised us once again?! Whose death will be a consequence of friendly fire? 

The reader is left with a epilogue depicting the story besides Amanda Waller’s great idea of the Suicide Squad. Her muse, her beginnings, and a glimpse of what truly lies beneath the tough exterior.

But the story of the Suicide Squad continues once more. A big player is killed. What will happen next with the Basilisks?
