Convergence: Aquaman #1 Exclusive!


Courtesy of DC Comics comes this Aquaman Shrine Exclusive--two inside pages from Convergence: Aquaman #1, written by Tony Bedard and art by Cliff Richards, on sale April 15!

As most of you know, "Convergence" is a company-wide event where DC will suspend publishing all of its titles in place of 40(!) different mini-series, all of them covering different eras from the company's long history. To that end, Aquaman #1 will, in addition to the main story, feature a brief recap of the Sea King's history, as it was told in the 1990s:

Aquaman's time heading Justice League Detroit will also be revisited in Convergence: JLA while Mera will be spotlighted in Convergence: Justice League. All Convergence titles will run for two issues in April and May, and then the regular titles will resume, Aquaman with a brand new creative team in #41!

Here is the first Convergence checklist of the initial titles, also embiggenable:


A big thanks to DC Comics for sending these pages our way!

Looks interesting! I am new to Aquaman with the New 52 and have heard this era was good stories.

Maybe they haven't revealed the post-convergence costume because he's going to loose his hand. Again.

May this be the first of many "Aquaman Shrine exclusives" from DC Comics...

Very nice character pages. That's the first time I've seen Aquaman getting treated with respect in pages like these.

This is my most favorite Aquaman version of all time. Probably mostly because I grew up with it, but It made Aquaman a recognizable force to be reckoned with. It was the first time Aquaman was portrayed as a bad ass and nut just some dude in a orange shirt who could talk to fish.
