Exclusive Cover Reveal: NEW SUICIDE SQUAD #1 variant by Ivan Reis and Eber Ferreira

Take a look at the new Squad.

We've been seeing quite a few exclusive cover reveals courtesy of DC Comics. We've already seen the cover to THE NEW 52: FUTURES END #11, Cliff Chiang's TEEN TITANS #1 variant, and some Batman 75th Anniversary variants. We're not finished with the reveals just yet.

On July 9, the NEW Suicide Squad debuts with a new series written by Sean Ryan with art by Jeremy Roberts. Check out this first look at the variant by Ivan Reis and Eber Ferreira.

No Caption Provided

The world has changed for Task Force X, a.k.a. the Suicide Squad. Director Amanda Waller no longer has the autonomy she once had. New members disrupt the team dynamic. And the team takes on an international scope. New members Joker’s Daughter, Deathstroke and Black Manta join Harley Quinn and Deadshot for a mission in the most dangerous and unpredictable place in the world: Vladimir Putin’s Russia!

Item Code: MAY140162 In Shops: 7/9/2014 SRP: $2.99

Not at all a fan of comics were they try to have the villains get redeemed. First off, heroes need villains. Second, they dont deserve it, period.

I just can't get into this new Harley. I have tried really, really hard to. I'll give this book a chance and see if it makes a difference.

Manta, Deadshot, and Deathstroke should call themselves "Seeing Red."

@sasquatch888: You're right, but their lack of morality and willingness to hurt anyone or do any job for profit is why I sort of lump them as villains. I do agree though they aren't villains in the sense that they go around and hurt people just for the sake of doing it.

I'm intrigued with Deathstroke and Deadshot on the same team. Two of my favorite villains.

i always thought of deadshot as more of a mercenary than a villian ...deathstroke too but a little less so because he can be vengeful,but none of them is inherently evil , just motivated by money ...villian might be an inaccurate description ...but i feel you they're two of my faves too and more villian than hero

Serious question:

Doesn't having one eye affect your ability to aim a gun. I know snipers use one eye but I am thinking running and gunning as these kitana/firearm wielding mercs are apt to do. Depth perception and all?

So two one eyed mercs and two lady jokers. Black Manta actually is the most interesting member somehow. After I saw the Flashpoint animated film I really started digging Manta.

Do not like Joker's daughter and absolutely cannot stand New 52 Harley, this whole title should be axed.

@blackdog2009: A lot of people seem to like him, and I haven't read anything with him in. So it makes me a little bit more interested in this title.

That's a pretty interesting line up. I might check this book out.

Maybe. We, русские, always like cranberry)
We call stuff that foreigners whrite about our country with all stamp and stereotypes cranberry or клюква, and my common sense tells me that their will be a lot of клюва in New Suicide Squad)

Well I like or love every character in this exept Joker's Daughter but I never read anything with her. Looks really cool. I would like to see some James Gordon Jr.

@teerack: No. She was in that Ravager book Beast Boy got his start in in the New 52. Though I really hope they use her more. They have seen to forgotten many of the Titans. It's sad.

I was talking about what happened in the Ravagers. At the end of the series all of the team members were captured by Deathstroke expect Beast Boy, and as payment they gave him Tara who was unconscious in a stasis pod. Deathstroke keeps showing up after that, and there has been no mention as to what's going on with her.

His work really shines when paired with Joe Prado and Rod Reis.

@figgs216: Haven't they always? He's in just about every Animated film, (in one he was President and the other saw him as a Pirate, even,) he was in both Young Justice and the main antagonist of Teen Titans, main antagonist of Arrow, and has been in many of DCs games like Injustice. If anything, people should be surprised when Slade isn't getting pushed.

putting Black Manta and Deathstroke on the same team should make for some impressive tactical banter. That's like teaming Black Panther and Captain America to me.

can anyone tell me what role Deathstroke played in Forever Evil, if any? I haven't read the series but I read the Teen Titans tie in issue that he appears in and that had nothing to do with the main story. I've flipped through some of the issues of the main series and he looked as if he was with Luthor's villain team but didn't do anything significant. If I'm wrong, update me and let me know.

Joker's daughter should just ditch Mistah J's face

and join the Red Lanterns in space

-The End-

(LOL. But seriously, they should do something -ANYTHING- to boost her likeability. Maybe make her a bit Deadpool-ish and break the 4th wall? Or get her in a taboo relationship with Ha-...ha ha ha ha ha)

Since the New 52, I've become a huge Black Manta fan, but I doubt that will be enough to draw me into this title. I don't mind Harley, but I have no interest in any of the others at all, so 2 out of 5 is not very good odds haha

Excited about the lighter feel of these adverts so far. Russia should offer some amusing moments for this team. Black Manta is a step in the right direction, though I prefer Deathstroke as a loner merc.

I feel like Harley's run her course in this book by now too. She has her own title, so give someone else a chance. Bring back Cheetah, or use Cheshire from Red Hood and the Outlaws, there was even a possible reference to Nightshade during Kot's run who could be utilized. I'd love to see Count Vertigo brought in as well since I think he was arrested in the pages of Green Arrow.

Harley doesn't feel natural on the Squad anymore. She comes across more as a crutch to push sales based on name-recognition than anything else.

Oh god, now Waller has Manta and Deathstroke on a leash!? Is there no depth that monster of a woman won't sink to?

Although I'm interested to see how Harley and Duella interact.

I knew the Joker's Daughter hate would be here. I don't hate the character, though her being here with Harley is redundant. Anyway, Can't wait for this series!
