San Diego 2010 Aqua-news!

Well, it didn't take long for these snippets to come out...

You introduced a new Aqualad in #4 and he was really well received online on the message boards. Were you expecting that kind of reaction?

Developing Aqualad with Warners Animation was literally the first thing I did when [DC Entertainment President] Diane Nelson brought me in as CCO so he’s a character I am incredibly invested in. And I think the excitement will only grow when people find out who he is and discover his secret origin in “Brightest Day” #9 and #10. He’s going to bring a lot to the table. There’s a lot more to him than just being the new Aqualad. We’re going to see his origin unfold throughout this whole series. Jackson plays a vital role in Aquaman and Mera’s story from here on out.

Ian Yoxon asked if you see “Brightest Day” as an opportunity to showcase individual characters with the hope of possibly launching new ongoing series once it’s complete like was done with “Booster Gold” after “52?” For instance, Aquaman and Mera’s story, perhaps more than anyone else’s, seems to be front and center in the book. So I’ll ask flat out, do you have plans for Aquaman and Mera post-“Brightest Day?”

There are plans for Aquaman, Mera and Aqualad after “Brightest Day,” yes.

But what really surprised me this bit! (which had it's origins in Blackest Night 8!)

When asked about the Indigo Tribe and their connection to an aqua war, Johns said that eventually you may see an Aquaman-themed event, but he said that if he revealed anymore, Berganza would hit him.

Wow! This would be monumental! An Aquaman-themed DC Event? So cool!
