Its the biggest week of the New 52 for me and not only is Aquaman #1 number one on my list, but I hope to get some extra copies and aqua-evangelize by leaving them in conspicuous places throughout the town such as Starbucks etc. The 70th Birthday post has inspired me to help introduce the Sea King to people who are not yet fans...besides that I can't pass up on Arthur's Justice League colleagues and will get Superman, The Flash, Hawkman, & Firestorm as well as the team books New Guardians, Teen Titans (sans Aqualad) and will give Blackhawks a chance as well. Semper Aqua! -- Joe Slab

Are there other comics coming out this week than Aquaman? There are? Okay, well, I know I'll be picking up All-Star Western (I like Jonah Hex a lot, but am hoping maybe DC will eventually work in other western characters into the book as well), probably Fury of Firestorm (thanks to the enthusiasm of my Fire and Water Podcast co-host The Irredeemable Shag), and definitely The Savage Hawkman. I've always loved the Hawks, and I want them to have a regular book! -- rob!

All-Star Western: I dunno. I read Jonah Hex but his character is as a loner/bounty-hunter. Not liking the idea of him living in Gotham City. Probably try it and then drop it. JLA Dark: maybe. I'll check out the art. I really liked Shadowpact until Bill W left...the idea is cool. I want to like this.
Aquaman!!!-- Russell Burbage

Aquaman--Was there ever any doubt? The Flash--The concept of Flash's brain functions operating at super-speed intrigues me. The Savage Hawkman--I'm a sucker for Hawkman stuff. -- Andy Luckett



So, what are you picking up this week, Aqua-Fans?
