|John Ostrander||Javier Pina||DC, Suicide Squad, Fixed|
John Ostrander returned to the Suicide Squad for an eight-issue miniseries, starting in November 2007. The series takes place roughly between the Squad's appearance in Checkmate (vol. 2) #6-7 and the events of Salvation Run (as Amanda Waller has already been ousted from her position at Checkmate, but Deadshot and Chemo are still with the Squad and not exiled). It is functionally a sequel to the Checkmate arc, detailing how Rick Flag, Jr. survived his apparent death before returning to Waller's Suicide Squad.
