Greetings all, today before going through the testing times of uploading stuff to my page, I downed a RedBull and somehow, everything wasn't as stressful, despite still being a pain in the ass. So I think I've found my new means of dealing with the struggle that is deviantart for a few weeks at least. Anyhooo lets get on with today's upload, which is very exciting...
. SUICIDE SQUAD - #1 THE HAIL MARY PLAY
That's right, BRAND NEW SERIES ALERT! as The Suicide Squad make their debut, be it a very changed and comicaptor based Task Force X. Today's issue closes a chapter left open by the recent REIGN OF STARRO event, that was continued in last weeks WONDER WOMAN, so I hope you all enjoy the resolution to this story... it's by no means completed and there's still SO MUCH fallout to come, but this little plot is done. I'd also like to address something that may have peaked your interest in this comic... Sonya Blade.
That's right, Sonya has returned and no, this isn't Mortal Kombat. So what's the deal? Well... this is MY universe and it dawned on me I can combine whatever franchises and models I like, so this is what I'm doing... consider all my previous MK comics mute, void and no-more. This is a brand new dawn for the characters (and there will be more coming) who will be integrated into my DC based universe. This also means other characters from various other once thought separate universes might be coming in the future, if I find a logical and good way to fit them in.
I have weeks of news and ideas to bring you since the last few uploads have tested me to breaking point and I never got around to telling you all. Let's start with some of the new series such as SUICIDE SQUAD and WONDER WOMAN. My plans for both are limited runs, 5 issues each that chronicle a certain story/period of time... for Wonder Woman (following on from last weeks #1) the series will deal with the fallout from REIGN OF STARRO and her attempts to bring together a new Justice League in her image... oh and it will be an all-female one!
Suicide Squad will follow the story of Catwoman and Harley Quinn's attempt at redemption and ultimately release from ARGUS. The series will document their 5 required successful missions to allow their freedom and also introduce Sonya Blade and many other new characters into the comicaptorverse. THE KEEPER is another limited 5 issue run comic as my favourite OC baddie continues to take down every heroine on his hit-list... which still includes next week's target (no spoilers here)!
We've got BATGIRL BEGINS continuing as it's own series since I LOVE the concept of teenage Barbara Gordon so much, while in BATGIRL we'll see her present day self taking on a mystery foe, along with many others familiar enemies. While BIRDS OF PREY will focus on the team/ARGUS's attempts to take down The Light across the globe, and finally in ZATANNA I have a two issue story planned featuring Black Canary called "SHADOWCREST" coming all before the summer.
That's your lot for this week, see you next Wednesday for some more chronicles from THE KEEPER!
