A big congrats to Writers Workshop Pilot Program Alum Chris Sebela on taking over the new INJUSTICE: GROUND ZERO series, on sale December 7th, that bridges the gap between the recently concluded INJUSTICE digital first and the upcoming Injustice 2 game! We can’t wait to read it, but luckily in the meantime you can check out his two issue Killer Croc story in SUICIDE SQUAD MOST WANTED: EL DIABLO & KILLER CROC in stores October 19th.

Read the great review of Michael Moreci’s premiere DC issue SUICIDE SQUAD MOST WANTED: EL DIABLO AND BOOMERANG #1, in stores now. And you won’t want to miss the conclusion in issue #2, in stores September 21st!
Moreci and Bazaldua kick off their story with a full on war going on and the Suicide Squad right in the thick of it. Right off the bat you’ll notice Moreci has a great handle on the dialogue. It gets to the core of each of the characters very quickly. The story itself moves at a good clip, even with a surprise or two up its sleeve. Most importantly you get the sense that Boomerang isn’t such a bad man, it’s just that he sometimes takes shortcuts.
We’d like to extend a big congratulations to Sonny Liew for being the first graphic novelist to win the Singapore Literature Prize for The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye which has been described as “a startling brilliant tour de force” (NPR Fresh Air). Sonny participated in the 2015 Artists Workshop Pilot Program and we’re so pleased to see his work get such high praise and recognition. The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye is a must read! Congrats again, Sonny.
Congratulations to Vita Ayala, Michael Moreci and Chris Sebela for their new assignments on SUICIDE SQUAD: MOST WANTED! All three participated in our Pilot Writers Workshop in January, 2016.
