SUICIDE SQUAD/BANANA SPLITS ANNUAL #1
Written by Tony Bedard
Art by Ben Caldwell
Backup Feature: SNAGGLEPUSS
Written by Mark Russell
Art by Howard Porter
“Suicide Splits” pairs up Saturday morning’s animal rock band with Amanda Waller’s Task Force X, the dirtiest players in the game! Mistaken for metahumans and thrown into the bowels of Belle Reve Penitentiary, the Banana Splits are recruited by Amanda Waller for a secret mission: Save the Suicide Squad! What follows is quite possibly the weirdest team up ever; how will Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky stand up to Harley, Deadshot, Katana and Killer Croc?

Mark Russell brings his hilariously satirical style to this backup feature, where Snagglepuss is a Southern gothic playwright working with an ensemble cast of cultural figures, exploring an intensely creative time in the New York City theater scene of the 1950’s.

"I’m a believer that all science fiction is really satire. Everyone who writes about the future is really commenting on the present. If I could reduce Prez to a single message, it would be that the single greatest problem confronting the human race is our utter waste of brainpower. We have seven billion of the most creative, complex problem-solving brains in the known Universe, and we put them to work making corndogs" - Mark Russell

"No, really the biggest influence any of the previous [aspects] of Prez has had on my work was Boss Smiley, because it just seemed so out of place. Here’s this character with a two-dimensional smiley face as his head. And to me, it just occurred to me–”They’re writing about Wal-Mart and they don’t even know it yet.” So I incorporated that. In my world, all the CEOs of all the major corporations have glowing logos where their faces should be. It’s a way of protecting their personal privacy. There’s a corporate personhood amendment where corporations have all the same rights as individuals. One of those is privacy. So the officers get a glowing logo instead of their head, so they can do whatever they want to you at work and then go home and live a private life, not really be accountable." - Mark Russell

"I think that the audience will largely be people like Beth Ross -- college smart asses or people that were college smart asses. I think the traditional superhero crowd will like it too. There is a lot of action in the story. And it's set in an age where the world is falling apart due to environmental change and degradation. In this future world, the United States steps into maybe 50 conflicts worldwide using drones and automated robots called Sentries, which allow us to be in places around the world without really sending troops or risking American lives. That's both more cost effective and less politically damaging. That becomes a big theme throughout the book. The world is falling apart and the United States is trying to aggressively hold everything together by using these automated forces." - Mark Russell

"I wanted to do a very different comic book than the original Prez. I think that the original Prez was more relevant for the early ’70s–it was about that they thought youth culture was about to take over the world now that 18 year olds could vote, and we’re in very different world now. We’re in a world where youth culture has largely failed, where the government and politics are largely controlled by elites and non-egalitarian forces. So I wanted to do a comic that was about this political reality, and to make that separation as cleanly as possible I wanted to come up with a completely different character in as many ways as possible from the original Prez Rickard. Although, I will say, Prez Rickard does show up as a character in the new Prez: he’s super old, in his 70s, and he’s a failed wunderkind from the past. He did not become president in my world, but he is there. I wanted it to be a very different comic about a very different time in American history."

"We had an establishment that was leading the country into endless conflicts overseas, that was entrenching economic interests behind corporate elites, and then this youth culture comes up to oppose it. And what we ended up getting was war overseas and entrenched corporate interests, but with a lot better style. So it’s kind of my critique on how the youth movement failed over the last 40 years and what would happen if it actually were to succeed in the future."

Yeah, I kind of dropped the ball on the weekly posts, but the scans have so much time between them that my heart went out of it. Dunno whether I'll keep up, but I'm giving up on the showcase-style posts. Instead, here's my two favorite strips from week six.

Y'all remember Ben Caldwell, the guy doing the Wonder Woman segment for Wednesday Comics? He's been posting art teases on his blog, and a few weeks back I put some of them up here.

He's posted a bit more art, so I've put some new pics up under the cut, but I'd also like to direct anyone who commented on the last post to this thread, in which Caldwell swings by to offer a response to some of our discussion. Partly because internet shelf life dictates that otherwise no one would see it, but mostly because (highlight for spoiler) OMG CHEETAH, which elicits in me a response very similar to the one Gage just got from [insanejournal.com profile] schmevil and [insanejournal.com profile] batcookies for his Tigra comment.

Ben Caldwell, who's working on the Wondy segment of the upcoming Wednesday Comics weekly, has been posting art teases at his blog. There's some fairly cool stuff and some vague suggestions of plot as well.
