Government Official Endorses Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo’s Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad #1 is coming to stores in December, by Australia’s favorite son Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo, and the series isn’t just highly anticipated by fans. Suicide Squad has also garnered praise before release from a U.S. government official on Thursday, via a statement released over Twitter.

Of course, we’re talking about DC-loving Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia, the country’s highest-ranking Snyderbrony (the colloquial term for fans that advocate for the release of the Snyder Cut of Justice League), who once snuck a DC Comics Easter Egg into his city’s new civic center. Mayor Garcia responded to a Tweet by Taylor to express advance remorse over the looming deaths of any of the characters.

Taylor responded as the two engaged in an international summit on inclusion.

Taylor agreed.

Suicide Squad #1 is out on December 18th, with final order cutoff coming up on Monday. Below, see the preview that was revealed EX-X-XCLUSIVELY on geometry-themed video game website Polygon.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it’s embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn’t that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the “real” news? Don’t answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
