Our Numbers Are Legion

As you can well imagine, the internets were all, ahem, atwitter with the news that Geoff Johns will be writing a new Aquaman solo series, which he announced at the MegaCon on Saturday.

While its never been the Shrine's mission to "break" news, I am quite proud that, for a few hours, this site was one of only a tiny handful of places on the internet that this amazing piece of news could be found (at one point on Saturday night, looking for further verification of the story, I googled it, only to find the Shrine's post at the top!).

The Shrine could not have done so without the invaluable help of F.O.A.M.er Joe Slab, who scours the web for Aqua-news with speed and dedication that rivals my own efforts here. It was Joe who sent me the first two tweets that announced the big news, and continued to try and get "official" verification even after I put up my post.

To that end, Joe will be joining me on the Aquaman Shrine's Twitter feed, continuing to search for breaking Aqua-news and giving the Shrine more of a presence there, something I've wanted to do for a while but just haven't had the time to tackle.

I'm thrilled that there is now so much Aquaman stuff to cover that the Shrine is taking on additional "correspondents", each devoted to some specific corner of Aqua-fandom. I think this is going to make the Aquaman Shrine an even better, more useful place to visit!

Welcome aboard Joe!

Thanks rob! This is a real honor for this life-long Aquaman fan.

I am hoping to reach out to Aqua-fans everywhere on the 'net and look forward to tweets from fellow FOAMers tipping us off to "All Things Aquaman".

If you let me know who you are, we will follow you back @aquamanshrine and you can also reach me at my own twitter feed @Jslab425!

Joe, I've been following you and The Shrine on Twitter for a while. I've sent Rob a few mini-scoops in the past, usually from EW.
