Aquaman #15 December Solicit


Ryan said...

I am so stoked for the Throne of Atlantis crossover!!! About time DC!

Kinda wondering how the crossover will go JL 15, Aquaman 15, 16, 16 and who gets the conclusion?

Also is Ardian Syaf the new permanent artist or just a fill in until they decide? He did Emperor Aquaman right?

Holy crap I can't comprehend how much December is going to rock for Aquafans!

Not to be Mr. Negative, but I'm really hoping this is a fill in. No offense to Syaf, but he's extremely not my thing. Not a happy camper so far.

@David - Yes, its been confirmed that Syaf is a temp artist while DC searches for a suitable permanent to fill the enormous shoes left by Ivan & Joe!

Also, I must commend DC for the way they are supporting the AQUAMAN title through this transition -- having Jim Lee doing a connect-a-cover image between AQUAMAN & JUSTICE LEAGUE in December will ensure that the title doesn't experience a sales drop in light of losing the previous art team , & in fact will probably spike AQUAMAN sales through the roof!

This is actually better news than I expected, as I have been enjoying Ardian Syaf's work on BATGIRL since the start of the New 52. Are there artists in DC's stable that I would rather have take over for Reis and Prado? Yes. Are there A LOT of artists in DC's stable I would rather have? No, maybe only half a dozen. At least Syaf can continue to draw hot red-heads.

And I agree that this is a great transition for the art team tying into this crossover with JUSTICE LEAGUE that will maintain, if not boost, sales on AQUAMAN.
