Two teams enter, one team wins a poll. Well, unless there’s a tie, then… everybody’s a winner. Yay!

Deadly and unpredictable or skilled and coordinated? Do you think the Suicide Squad’s lethal and intimidating ways will allow them to overcome the new team in Detective Comics? Or do you think the combination of tactics and talent will allow Batwoman’s group to take down Task Force X? To make things as simple as possible, assume everyone is acting in character and they’re facing off in a city that has no interference from other heroes, villains, and law enforcement. So, which team do you think should earn the victory? Think it through, vote in the poll, and then maybe elaborate a bit in the comments! When all is said and done, don’t forget to read their respective DC Rebirth titles, too! Seriously, it’s good stuff.

Suicide Squad

  • Deadshot
  • Katana
  • Harley Quinn
  • Captain Boomerang
  • Killer Croc

Batwoman’s Boot Camp

  • Red Robin
  • Batwoman
  • Cassandra Cain
  • Clayface
  • Spoiler

We’re looking to really step up the amount of content on the blog, so if this performs well enough, we’ll make this a weekly segment, and maybe even include video of the Midtown Comics staff sharing their thoughts on the brawl. As always, we’re open to hearing what YOU want to see, so please share your feedback with us!

Midtown Suicide Banner

Review by Enrique Varona

The Suicide Squad is one of the coolest concepts in all of comics. An elite group of crooks and convicts forced to the dirty work for the government. It combines the thrills of The Dirty Dozen with the guilty pleasure of focusing on the villains of the DC Universe. David Ayer’s film adaptation had a lot of hype to live up to, both from the comic book community and the summer blockbuster crowd. Luckily, Suicide Squad not only lives up to the hype, it surpasses it in many ways. It is a strong entry in the emerging DC Cinematic Universe and exposes fans new and old to some of the best villains that DC has to offer.

After a whole lot of anticipation, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has finally arrived! Some of the employees here at Midtown Comics legitimately enjoyed the film and now they want to explain why! Above, we have a video review, and below we’ll provide links to our other reviews of the film. As you can imagine, there are A LOT of comic fans here at Midtown Comics (shocking, right?) so we’re going to offer plenty of opinions! Keep checking back for more coverage, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy the three videos!

Also, friendly reminder that Suicide Squad: Rebirth #1 and Harley Quinn #1 – which are both jumping on points – are now available! Click the names to get your copies, or else we’re going to tell Amanda Waller that you’re totally interested in joining Task Force X.

Article by Gregg Katzman; cover by David Finch and Jordie Bellaire

This week, six DC Rebirth comics go on sale: Justice League: Rebirth #1, Batman #2, Aquaman #2, Green Lanterns #2, Superman #2, and Green Arrow #2. Well, I’ve read Batman #2 (by Tom King, David Finch, Jordie Bellaire, Matt Banning, and Danny Miki) and I’m here to tell you that it’s awesome. Were you planning to read Batman #2 no matter what I say about it? Odds are the answer is yes for many of you, but some of you out there may still be on the fence, or maybe you completely forgot that a new Dark Knight comic is available tomorrow. If you’re one of those people, hopefully the upcoming babbling will convince you to give it a shot. And for those already looking forward to the comic, I hope this gets you even more excited to read the Caped Crusader’s upcoming issue. Now, I’ll stop with the vague praise and get a little more specific, but don’t worry, this article is spoiler-free!
