Awesomeness! I am behind in my comic reading, need a trip to the comic shop!

One of those cover kicks ass and one of them doesn't. Crossing my fingers that the beauty is not gone from Aquaman.

In Ocean Master's clutch I see Arthur's trident, Superman's cape, Diana's lasso & a batarang.

Anything from FLash, SHAZAM, or Cyborg?

The shrapnel pieces appear to be part of Cyborg, nothing of the Flash I can see...

The anticipation for this crossover is killing me. Throne of Atlantis ftw!!!

Designer Daddy said...

I think I see Shazam's floating head in the reflection of Ocean Master's helmet... Oops! Just wishful thinking!

I am also really excited for this Throne of Atlantis. The Reis/Prado art on Justice League aside, it looks as if Johns is going to make Ocean Master a force to be reckoned with rather than a mostly impotent nemesis as he has been during much of his publication history.

Also, who is this "old enemy" of Mera's? I would say her sister but not sure its that obvious.

Aquaman and Mera are supposed to appear in that Valentine's Day special also coming out that month.

The colors and art from the new Aquaman artist sorta remind me of the American Tidal era.

I hate to be that guy but Aquaman's cover is horrible. Worst one thus far. Two covers of Aquaman in a cage, I don't even care if Ocean Master throws him in one for the duration of two comics. Cover needs to be redone.
How about half profile of Aquaman in the dark, a reflection of the Ocean Master cover.

Why couldn't they keep Reis/Prado on Aquaman at least until Throne of Atlantis concluded. Could you imagine the entire arc in both JL and Aquaman by the guys!?

DC really missed on this opportunity. Sure I get the workload would have been tremendously hard to cope with, but the flow in art would have been AMAZING. :(
