Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis Ad

sgThis ad struck me when I first saw it for two reasons:

1)It's just a beautiful illustration

B)DC is actually spending ad money on promoting Aquaman! From what I've seen, it's usually the same handful of titles that get all the promotion, so it's great to see that maybe, just maybe, DC is really behind this book, and not just publishing it because they feel like they should be publishing Aquaman somewhere.

As much as I've enjoyed Busiek and Guice's run on A:SOA, I'm very excited about the team of Tad Williams and Shawn McManus, and can't wait to see where they take the character (both the current Aquaman, and the original in his squiddy-faced persona).

...And maybe for once we'll even see an Aquaman title get past a measly seventy-seven issues!

A dream of many an Aqua-fan, eh? I am excited, too. And optimistic.

I actually DROPPED the book after two issues of Busiek's run. It seemd just wrong somehow. But I like the look of this ad, and I hear that Garth is coming back, so I think I will dive back in. I'll give it a try, anyway....
