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.

JLA #22 has the JLA fighting Starro the Conqueror, called "It." Half the team fight It in the real world, while Superman, Green Lantern/Kyle Rayner and Wonder Woman/ Queen Hippolyta fight It in the dream world. Without their powers.

"I always bring up Afterlife with Archie, wherein they told a different kind of story, they approached it from a different angle, but it was still Archie and Reggie and Betty and Veronica and all the characters you knew. It's just that they were tweaked a little for the story being told.

So with the Scooby Doo stuff, I'm not looking to tell people, "I know Scooby better than anybody else — I'll just change everything!" No. I'm trying to approach the characters by keeping as much of who they are as is possible within the limits of the story.

I'm not looking to do a complete revamp of Scooby Doo. I don't think there's any reason to.

"Like Superman, I had two names, one American and the other foreign. I, too, lived in between two cultures. When he travelled from America to the bottle city of Kandor, one of the few remnants of his home culture, I felt a kinship with him. It was a bit like the shift from public school to Chinese language school that I had to go through every Saturday." - Gene Luen Yang

"They're J.M. DeMatteis and my Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. Our Blue Beetle never got shot in the head. He never split from Booster Gold. The last memories these two clowns have is that Max was mad at them. Then they woke up in a refrigerator on Takron-Galtos. It's our Justice League." - Keith Giffen

'We're exploring a universe that hasn't been explored yet — the "Bwa-Ha-Ha" universe or whatever. And DC was amenable. So we said, let's do it!' - Keith Giffen

Newsarama: Keith, your book is continuing into June, along with a lot more books with a bit more humor in them. With the success of the Harley Quinn book, and the extra attention Justice League 3000 has been getting, I think people are figuring out that there's room in the comic book industry for books that don't take things too seriously.

Keith Giffen: I've been saying that for years! I've been out there all alone saying it's OK to laugh and have a little bit of fun. With Justice League 3000, we have an obvious sense of humor.

While I don't love IDENTITY CRISIS, I really like one part of it. One part that I think Brad Meltzer and/or Geoff Johns should have expanded upon. One page from FLASH #214 after the cut.

'Comics are supposed to be fun. Like, "Oh my God I can't believe they did that!" I don't care about your convoluted continuity. I don't care how serious you want us to take your superheroes. I don't care about Hollywood. I'm not trying to make my books Hollywood friendly or easy to turn into a movie. I want it to be difficult, because we're going to go out and we're going to have fun. Right now, Justice League 3000 is the book I'm having the most fun doing, bar none. You're welcome to join us if you'd like to.' - Keith Giffen

'That was, for a while, the way comics were being run. If the editor didn't like the direction a book was going, it didn't matter how well it sold -- they'd get in there and start pinching and tweaking and fucking it up. But lately -- and I know this for a fact, I've talked to people who actually make these decisions -- it's loosening up. It's really loosening up. They're actually saying, "You know what? You're always saying, 'If I was left alone, I would do this and this and this. I'd make this book popular.' Fine. The shackles are off. Go."'

'The minute I realized, "Oh my God, they mean it!" I said, "Why don't we bring Beetle and Booster back?" And they said, "Okay." I thought, "Oh, wow, they didn't take a swing at me. I don't feel like a wac-a-mole." I went, "Well, I'm also going to say it's not the New 52 universe -- it's going to be a whole different universe." They said, "Okay."' - Keith Giffen
