With Rebirth, DC's Suicide Squad are recruiting a new member - Jim Lee. DC Comics has confirmed that they informed retailers at the ComicsPRO Annual Meeting Thursday that the DC co-publisher and iconic artist would be part of an artistic rotation working on the fall-launching Suicide Squad twice-monthly series, which will be preceded by a Suicide Squad Rebirth #1 one-shot.
Lee has already committed to draw April's Harley Quinn & The Suicide Squad April Fool's Special, but apparently it won't be a one-off pairing.
Warner Bros.'s Suicide Squad movie is scheduled to open in theaters August 5 and Lee's involvement is likely due to what DC Entertainment hopes will be the franchise's emerging high-profile.
