Separately, they’re an FBI “most wanted” list come to life. Together—under the command of the iron-willed Colonel Rick Flag and the indomitable Amanda Waller—they’re one of the world’s most effective fighting forces, ideally suited for the brutal but necessary jobs that are too dirty for regular superheroes. They are the top-secret operatives of Task Force X—the Suicide Squad. And they’re about to welcome a brand-new member.
When Waller orders her team to recover an object known as the Black Vault from enemy hands, the Squad has no idea that within its opaque depths lurks the genocidal Kryptonian madman whose power and rage nearly took down Superman himself—General Zod.
Beyond the challenge of subduing its newly acquired captive, however, Task Force X faces even greater dangers from the sinister sphere that once contained him. As its dark energies begin to wreak havoc on the team’s sanity, only its craziest member, Harley Quinn, is able to resist its insidious influence. But can one newly sane psychologist single-handedly stop the madness of the Black Vault, defeat Zod and keep the Suicide Squad from living up to its name?
Red-hot writer Rob Williams and legendary artist Jim Lee unleash the insanity in SUICIDE SQUAD: REBIRTH DELUXE EDITION BOOK #1, starring the characters you love and hate from the smash-hit movie! Exploding from DC’s blockbuster Rebirth event, this deluxe hardcover collects SUICIDE SQUAD #1-8 and the one-shots SUICIDE SQUAD: REBIRTH and HARLEY QUINN AND THE SUICIDE SQUAD APRIL FOOLS’ SPECIAL, and features stories illustrated by a murderers’ row of superstar artists including Philip Tan, Jason Fabok, Ivan Reis, Gary Frank, Stephen Byrne, Carlos D’Anda, Christian Ward, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Sean“Cheeks” Galloway.
Considering that "The Wall" relies less on loyalty and trust and more on brain-implanted bombs to control her crew of conscripts, finding the culprit is going to be a tall order. Any one of the rogues in this gallery-including Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Enchantress and Killer Croc-would almost certainly climb over a pile of their teammates' corpses for the chance to escape.
But even when she's down for the count, Waller has a few aces up her sleeve, including 1) the deranged Kryptonian war criminal, General Zod, and 2) her own unequaled, bloody-minded ruthlessness.
Bending Zod to her will, however, means striking a bargain with one of Superman's deadliest enemies-and one of the only people on the planet smarter and more tenacious than Waller herself. But no matter how powerful the leverage she finds to use against him, in the end Zod kneels for no one. Will Waller's plan to make this living weapon of mass destruction a full-fledged member of the Suicide Squad live up to its enormous potential? Or will it literally and figuratively blow up in her face?

Hell hath no fury like Barbara Hershey!
You think you know her story. Chief Judge of Mega-City One, Barbara Hershey had been a powerful ally to Judge Dredd, until she became infected with an alien pathogen and – supposedly - died. But little do the citizens and judges of Mega-City One suspect that Hershey’s death was faked.
Now, join fan favourite character Judge Hershey as she embarks on a new adventure beyond the grave and beyond the walls of Mega-City One, to right the wrongs of her past and dispense justice! Critically acclaimed creative team Rob Williams (Judge Dredd, Doctor Who) and Simon Fraser (Judge Dredd, Doctor Who) tell a globe-spanning, gritty story of retribution.
As the go-to team tasked with handling the world’s most top secret threats, the Suicide Squad has faced down terrors across the globe. But they’ve never brought their work home with them-until now.
Under the command of Task Force X’s iron-fisted director Amanda Waller, the Squad has “liberated” a strange extradimensional orb known as the Black Vault from the planet’s most secure incarceration facility-at the cost of one disintegrated team member. What’s inside the eerie black sphere? None other than Kryptonian dictator General Zod, in all his megalomaniacal, world-destroying glory.
Now Waller has to figure out what to do with one of the most dangerous entities in the known universe. In theory, whoever controls Zod controls the world. In practice, the Black Vault’s corrupting energies are already eroding the sanity of everyone in the Squad’s HQ-with the sole exception of the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn!
But can one newly sane psychologist single-handedly stop the madness of the Black Vault, defeat Zod and keep the Suicide Squad from ultimately living up to its name?

Their latest mission should be easy enough: recover a powerful cosmic weapon called the Black Vault from enemy hands.

America is under attack. And America’s gonna fight back. The only question is which is worse for America’s dirtiest line of defense: Task Force X, a.k.a. the Suicide Squad!
First, a hive of brain-draining alien insectoids has infested one of the country’s most beloved theme parks. Faced with an all-out incursion, Amanda Waller sends in Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and a team of the toughest criminals in Belle Reve Penitentiary…plus some poor sap named Juan. What’s this sad sack’s secret? And why is he the only thing standing between the Squad and destruction?
Then, the government unveils its latest plan to make America safe again: the Wall, a super-soldier commanded by Task Force X veteran Rick Flag and armed with enough power to take down every member of the Squad. And at the worst possible time, too: the super-cyberterrorist named Hack is back, and she’s out to unleash every single secret Amanda Waller has ever tried to bury.

Deep within the world is a hidden flame—an inferno of hatred and vengeance that consumes everything it touches. In the aftermath of the war between the Suicide Squad and the Justice League, one of Amanda Waller’s greatest foes has seized that flame, and now he’s going to use it to burn down everything she holds dear—starting with her home base, the Belle Reve Penitentiary.
The result is one of the Squad’s greatest challenges yet: holding together as a unit while fighting to keep their fellow super-villains behind bars. When faced with the chance to escape Waller’s control, however, one member of the team will seize the opportunity—and launch a bloody betrayal in the process.
Can an enraged Harley Quinn track down the traitor—and take down the mastermind behind the mutiny—before Task Force X is terminally disbanded?
