So, remember when the full cover for Red Hood and the Outlaws #19 leaked a while back? Yeah, cool cover, definitely threw tumblr for a loop. Then we were all "it's probably a metaphor," then Jason's face did get burned, and then despite apparently almost getting killed due to the acid, Jason miraculously had no physical damage whatsoever. Yeah, I don't know. Regardless, it seems like we may be getting an entirely new surprise next week, as new writer James Tynion IV tweeted a picture of his comps.
Oh, also... remember that time where Mico Suayan was announced as the new artist? Haha, no. If we're to go by the cover, it seems Julius Gopez (who has been solicited from #20 and on) will be illustrating the issue. Personally, I'm not that surprised for a couple of reasons. Mainly, all the recent solicits sort of indicated the swap, but shortly after this announcement, Suayan tweeted this:
This Redhood gig has become a really tough gig for me. The pressure of time and making this a memorable issue is overwhelming.Then never really mentioned Red Hood again. Thought it was odd, but never said anything cus I didn't want to make a fuss out of something I wasn't sure about... let alone make a fuss at all, because whatever.

So who knows what happened to Suayan, but what we do knows is that Tynion and Gopez's first issue hits next week.
PS... that snickers bar has a to be a hint to something, RIGHT?!
