Previews October 2011

This is DC's solicit for Aquaman #2 in the newest Previews, out this week!

What I found significant was how far up in the "batting order" Aquaman is--this is page four out of their over sixty-page section in the book. I realize that this doesn't mean anything really; its just nice to see Aquaman so prominent!

It's really clever the way these two covers go together. The first issue's cover had Aquaman with the trident getting ready to pierce something, while he was surrounded by the Trench.

And of course, the second issue, we see the face of the very Trench creature he was about to attack -- and we see that moment in time through the reflection in its eyes.

It seems like this would have been done before, but I can't think of anything like this. It's really clever actually.

I was about to express concern over the Aquaman #2 cover reusing the art from Aquaman #1 instead of presenting Aquaman anew, but hat-tip to airship, I get it now. Though, I still wonder the wisdom of not featuring Aquaman more prominently on the cover in this, only his second new issue.
