Aquaman on the Web: Super-Pets!

F.O.A.M.er Joe Mello sent me this link to a DC press release announcing a new line of kids' chapter books starring the DC Super-Pets!

Aquaman is not mentioned specifically, but here are the names of some of the books:
Heroes of the High Seas, The Fastest Pet on Earth, Midway Monkey Madness, Pooches of Power!, Royal Rodent Rescue, and Super Hero Splash Down. The first and last books certainly sound like an opportunity for the Sea King to make an appearance, don't they?

The books will be drawn by Tiny Titans' Art Baltazar, which means they will be awesome.

Further down, there's another announcement about an original series by Stone Arch Books (who my buddies Sean Tiffany and Paul Kupperberg do a lot of work for) starring, and I quote "DC Comics' iconic characters BATMAN, SUPERMAN, and WONDER WOMAN, and coming in Spring 2011 GREEN LANTERN and the FLASH."

Ah yes--one sure way to keep certain characters from becoming iconic (or, in this case, chipping away at their already inherent iconic-ness) is to never feature them when you have the chance. Thanks DC!
