BURBANK, CA (November 16, 2023) – Today DC revealed final covers and interior art from Suicide Squad: Kill Arkham Asylum #1. This five-issue series debuts in comic book stores and at participating e-tailers on Tuesday, February 6, and is the official prequel to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the highly anticipated videogame from Warner Bros. Games, Rocksteady Studios, and DC.
Written by John Layman, with art by Jesús Hervás, this five-issue monthly series for readers 17+ (to match the videogame rating) provides an exciting backstory to the game, in which Amanda Waller is recruiting a new Task Force X to take on a Brainiac-corrupted Justice League. Waller has taken control of the recently rebuilt Arkham Asylum, and her brutal tactics and merciless methods have led to the most secure facility Gotham City has ever seen. Waller’s true intentions are revealed, however, when the cell doors are opened, resulting in a free-for-all death match among Arkham’s patients, with the strongest, smartest, and most ruthless survivors tapped to serve her in a new Suicide Squad.
Each print issue of Suicide Squad: Kill Arkham Asylum includes a redeemable code for a bonus digital in-game item, inspired by the comic. The series will also be available day and date on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE (DCUI), and the in-game codes will be available to paid DCUI Annual and Ultra tier subscribers.
