We're still a few months away from the release of The Suicide Squad, but DC Comics is beginning to promote the R-rated requel with a series of tie-in covers, and director James Gunn has now taken to Twitter to share a first look.

The artwork will adorn the covers of upcoming titles such as Batman, Infinite Frontier, Blue and Gold and Catwoman, and spotlight several different artists' interpretations of this new incarnation of Task Force X. The likes of Harley Quinn, King Shark and Peacemaker seem to be most prominently featured, but pretty much every member of the team makes an appearance.

There are 11 covers in total, and you can check them out by clicking on the thread below.

"Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Bell Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out — even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today's do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone's favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese."
"Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave...and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them."

We recently found out that the movie was officially rated R for "strong violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use and brief graphic nudity."

The Suicide Squad is set to premiere on HBO Max and in theaters on August 6.
