Earlier this month, DC announced the Suicide Squad would receive a new ongoing series from writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo. Now, Taylor has revealed more of Redondo's concept art hinting at two new members of the latest incarnation of Task Force X.
The first character is Jog, whose name would imply that he's perhaps a speedster of some sort.
The second is a very muscular woman named Osita, whom Taylor says is from Puerto Rico and will play a big role in the series.

Taylor had previously revealed a character named Thylacine prior to the announcement of the series, who may also be a member of the new Suicide Squad. As the title will feature members of a superhuman terrorist group called the Revolutionaries joining the team, perhaps that's what these teases are all alluding to.
Written by Tom Taylor with art by Bruno Redondo, a cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado and a variant cover by Francesco Mattina, the 40-page debut of the new Suicide Squad series goes on sale Dec. 18 from DC.
