INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at a cool scene from last issue of the Suicide Squad (in fact, it’s the very last scene from the Suicide Squad ongoing series).
So here’s the basic set-up for this final scene, which took place in Suicide Squad #66, which was written by John Ostrander and Kim Yale and was drawn by Geof Isherwood (Robert Campanella on inks) – Count Vertigo was going through a rough time in his life and wanted to end it all. He asked Deadshot to kill him and Deadshot was willing, but insisted that Vertigo thought long and hard about it, because if he asked Deadshot to do it, Deadshot would do it without hesitation, so he better be darn sure he really wanted to die. That subplot went on for a little while and finally came to a head after the Suicide Squad’s final mission.
So enjoy the scene (which ended a great five-plus year run by the Squad)…

What a way to end a series!
Now once again, if you wouldn’t mind, there are so many great Squad scenes, I’m sure I’ll be using a few of them in the future, so if you could, could you just comment on this scene (or the Squad in general) rather than mention other scenes, so we don’t spoil the surprise for the folks who haven’t had the pleasure of reading the Squad! Thanks!
