Garth Ennis. Peacemaker. It’s a match made in bloody heaven!
The breakout character from The Suicide Squad gets his own tale of peace ahead of the upcoming HBO Max show! Readers can take a deep dive into the backstory of the World’s Greatest Peace Enthusiast in this special one shot from the legendary Gath Ennis (PREACHER, THE BOYS), with art by Garry Brown (DC HORROR PRESENTS THE CONJURING: THE LOVER) . Long before joining Task Force X, Christopher Smith, code name Peacemaker, meets with a psychiatrist—a woman dangerously obsessed with his bizarre and violent past. From his tragic childhood to his military service overseas to his multiple missions with Special Forces, Smith has more than his share of skeletons in the closet. But who’s actually analyzing whom? And will this trip down memory lane result in yet more fatalities?
For those unfamiliar with thelong, strange comic book history of Peacemaker (which dates back to the ’60s), the character actually started out at Charlton Comics before the publisher went extinct and their heroes were bought by DC. Since coming to the DC Universe in the ’80s, Peacemaker’s twisted view of a violent path toward peace and his accompanying psychosis have increasingly formed the basis of his character – and even inspired Watchmen’s Comedian.
