WHAT JUST HAPPENED: The Squad went down to Atlantis on a covert mission to sink Atlantis back under the water but Waller actually sent them with a bomb to blow it up!
THIS WEEK: Harley and Deadshot were captured by Aquaman’s people while Aquaman got King Shark to help their cause. Deadshot is certain they can help stop the Suicide Squad now that they know what their true mission was. I think this says a lot about both Harley Quinn and Deadshot. They may be villains, but they are also human and sometimes they don’t do exactly what we think they will.
Meanwhile, Urcell and the rest of the Squad are breaking into the vault of Atlantis where all the really powerful stuff is. Urcell no longer wants any part of the plan because it would mean destroying her home…She just wants to rule it. But her argument falls on deaf ears because Satanis has regained the strength he’s not had on Earth before and he wants to take that power for himself. And that is how Urcell ended up dead.
Fortunately, Aquaman, King Shark, Harley, and Deadshot arrive just in time to stop him! Hopefully…
ABOUT THE ART: Jose Luis did a really stellar job on this one. I love the childish look of Harley and innocent, which
is part of her persona. The colors are very vibrant and I love the difference between Atlantis and dry land. The shading and pallets are different in a way that balances each other but also shows the differences.
