While not incorrect, since Deep Target is advertised as leading into Aquamen, and not into a GA series, I think the trajectory is clear - it’s an Aquabook.
Wonder Woman, much as I wish I could say this was not true, cannot sustain multiple books at once. I partly think this is a failure on DC’s part - they’ve tried over and over again (and currently have three or four Wonder books going on leading into their event). But the Aquabooks and the Wonder books are not selling nearly as much as I would hope for.
I agree that Aquaman has earned his time in the sun - but sadly, I don’t think my feeling is shared by enough fans to sustain the title.
At any rate - I have a pretty good trust in Brandon Thomas, so I think this title will be pretty good!
I must have missed that in the solicits, because despite it being written by Brandon Thomas, I haven’t seen anything about Deep Target leading into Aquamen, be it solicits, or cover copy like Aqualad and Black Manta have.
Agreed. Aquamen #1 will be my first read next Tuesday, that’s for sure. I’m just happy to see an ongoing Aquabook back in the line again.
Speaking of, I will forever beat a drum for Sub Diego and the vast majority of that volume of Aquaman (2003-2006) because it was just FUN, especially the issues that had Alan Davis covers and Patrick Gleason interiors.
Splashing good time that volume of Aquaman was, just splashingly good!
I’m sure he’ll work w/ them as long as it’s beneficial to him. And as soon as they’re no longer useful to him, he’ll stab them in the back. He might offer Jackson 1 more chance to join him, but both he and Arthur have gotta keep their eyes open for the inevitable betrayal
The ‘ocean’ (there are plenty of ‘em, btw) has HAD more than one hero—for six decades. Sadly, it’s DC Comics that doesn’t seem to know it. I read ‘Aquaman’ titles for over 50 years—for GARTH. (Remember Tempest, anyone? Not to mention Mera)? I have no idea where my favorite aqua-mage hero is now, since DC seems obsessed with pushing Jackson in all things…everywhere. Frankly, that kid is just not that interesting; neither was Kaldur, his morose cartoon version. After that mini-series and issue #1 of ‘Aquamen,’ I am about ready to just give up on Atlantis, which is really tough to say after all this time. Whenever you get back to writing about my favorite prince, his own kingdom and his awesome powers, give me a yell. Until then, I am seriously bored with Arthur weirdly grinning all the time and giving Jackson the kind of helicopter parenting pep-talks that make kids cringe.
