Random Comic Pick - Episode 24 (The Suicide Squad Special)

My random comic pick on The Comic Conspiracy: Episode 24 (The Suicide Squad Special) is Suicide Squad (Vol. 1): Trial By Fire written by John Ostrander and drawn by various artists. This trade collects the first eight issues of the series and includes Secret Origins #14. If you listened to Episode 24 (The Suicide Squad Episode) then you are probably either interested in checking out this title or completely turned off from reading it. Either way Trial By Fire is a great introduction to the Suicide Squad; a team composed of villains who must go on "suicide" missions to get time taken off their prison sentences and Ostrander does a wonderful job mixing C/D/F list characters together to make stories that are engaging and fun to read. I am completely talked out about the Suicide Squad, but if you are into off beat teams check this title out.

Since the Suicide Squad hasn't really been collected I will be getting a reading list up so you can search around and maybe get the single issues to read. Here is the Suicide Squad Reading List. Enjoy!

Don't forget that we are having a contest to win a good chunk of the Suicide Squad series. So go to iTunes and write a review for the podcast. The best review wins this collection of Suicide Squad books.

Remember Comics Conspiracy is a great place to order comics and you can also download comics at the Comics Conspiracy - Comixology Storefront for your computer, tablet or phone.


  1. The Suicide Squad ep of the podcast has certainly piqued my interest in the book. I even watched the Task Force X episode of Justice League Unlimited last night. I will definitely pick this trade up.

  2. Nice. Did you like the fact that we did a title specific episode?
