The Suicide Squad Crash Course

Want to catch up on the essential Suicide Squad stores before the movie hits theaters on August 5? Well, here’s your two-week crash course to writer John Ostrander’s classic ’80s comic series! You’ll find digital versions of everything you need over at Comics Conspiracy’s digital store; specifically, the four Suicide Squad collected editions and the Deadshot collected edition will get you everything up through Day 8 of this reading order. After that, you’ll need single issues for Suicide Squad #31-66.

So grab this stuff, and see what the Suicide Squad is all about! You’ve got exactly two weeks from today until the film releases, and I’ve broken it all up into nice, clean story arcs for you, with an easy 5-7 issues per day!
