DC comics has revealed plans to offer a reprint Harley Quinn & The Suicide Squad April Fools Special #1 as a free giveaway to promote the release of the Suicide Squad movie.
According to Diamond, the reprint will be titled Harley Quinn & The Suicide Squad Special Edition #1, and will have a new cover in the form of the Jim Lee cover previously used as a variant cover for Justice League #47. The reprint will be given away through Direct Market retailers starting July 27.
This giveaway comes hot on the heels of Free Comic Book Day, for which DC offered a different Suicide Squad reprint, a new printing of the New 52's Suicide Squad #1 - a move that puzzled some fans considering how issue had been released years prior, and beared little resemblance to the team's Rebirth incarnation or its movie counterpart. Harley Quinn & The Suicide Squad Special Edition #1 is a much closer representation of what fans can expect from both the film and the upcoming new series.
Harley Quinn & The Suicide Squad Special Edition #1 will be available starting July 27, just ahead of Suicide Squad's August 5 theatrical release.
