With Suicide Squad hitting the big screen later this year, DC Comics is gearing up for some synergy that focuses on breakout fan favorite Harley Quinn.

The comic publisher has announced an ambitious one-off comic dubbed Harley Quinn and the Suicide Squad April Fool's Special, written by Rob Williams, with art by Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Sean “Cheeks” Galloway. That’s right — DC co-publisher Jim Lee is picking up the pencil to take on art duties for the project, which puts the project in fairly rarefied air, to say the least.

Here’s the one-off's official synopsis:

Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, M.D., welcomes you to Evil Anonymous, the support group for super villains in need; where no problem is too insane or homicidal, and where discretion is assured as only a clown princess of crime can—which is to say, not at all. But when Harley Quinn starts using her patients’ own evil schemes against them, it turns out that a much bigger, far more dangerous, and truly life-altering joke is being played on her.

Harley Quinn and the Suicide Squad April Fool's Special is set to hit shelves April 6.
