"I’m just using an old approach to Suicide Squad. It’s basically what Frank Miller did with Batman, it’s what Alan Moore did with most of the things he does. He built his career on doing this sort of material, restructuring or recontextualizing things, and either stripping them down to their essentials or just doing their own thing entirely." - Michel Fiffe

Is this fanwork or does Fiffe have some kind of arrangement with DC? I really like the art.

I think the art is fine, but the lettering needs some work.

It's a fanwork, he sells it through Etsy.
The series is actually done now, and Fiffe has gotten his first mainstream comics job. He's writing the new Ultimates series for Ultimate Marvel.

Closer to fanwork probably, but I think Fiffe's changed the names and characters around enough that this can safely be called an original work, and it doesn't actually infringe on any copyrights to the extent that it would be worth it for DC to try anything.

I mean, I think we notice it more because we're not used to seeing Suicide Squad expies, but this really isn't any closer to copyright infringement than something like Supreme was.

I'd be a bit more wary of Marvel, actually. I mean, they've rattled spears simply because someone could make a character that looks like one of theirs in an online game.

Sometimes I wish the Japanese approach to fanworks was bit more universal.

Except for the one guy who is identical to Deadshot in every way, save for not having a reticle eyepiece on his mask.
