Superman by artist Drew Struzan! This was a poster I had when I was a lad! I hung it at the foot of my bed.


TV Flash

The Flash TV show lasted only 1 season, but I thought it was pretty good (even though they went in a totally different way than the comics). An artist named Eric Sweetman drew the portrait, I added the logo and emblem!

DC's January solicits were released yesterday and once again there's a great Aquaman cover by Ivan Reis! I don't know what I'll do when Ivan gets moved to another book once Brightest Day ends... I hope it's an Aquaman book!

Aquaman and his worst enemy?

After reflecting on the previous post, I thought this wallpaper made perfect sense...

What do you think?

New York Comic Con Aqua-News!

From the fine folks at CBR, comes this interview with Brightest Day writer Geoff Johns where he talks about Aquaman:
"There are lots of plans for Aquaman post-'Brightest Day,'" Johns said in response to the next question, 'he's going to be bad-ass." Berganza cautioned him it was too early to give more details.

Asked about B-listers he'd like to upgrade, "Nobody's B-list until you write them as B-list--I consider Aquaman A-list," Johns said.

After some prodding (and a fan shouting, "What are they going to do, fire you?"), he decided to share a scene he'd always wanted to write. "Aquaman's just chilling, and Superman and Wonder Woman come up to him say, 'we're rebuilding the Justice League, we really want to you to join.' He says, 'if you need a leader, I'll be there.' 'No, Arthur, we really need you.' 'If you need a leader, I'll be there.' Then you like turn the page, and they're all around the table and Aquaman says, 'I call this meeting to order.'"
I love that he considers Aquaman A-list! (I always have!) I can't wait to see the plans come to fruition for Aquaman, Aqualad, Aquagirl, and Mera after Brightest Day is done!

And also this cute bit...
Johns will be building Aquaman's rogues' gallery "quite a bit." A fan shouted that BP should be a villain.
It does make sense, doesn't it?

And then this?!?
Asked about obscure character Dark Flash Walter West, but Aquaman's sister and other associated characters will be returning.
Never in any incarnation of Aquaman that I've read, has there ever been a sister, that I can recall! Perhaps there's something in one of the Golden Age Aquaman stories? I admit, I haven't read most of those...

Revisiting a past wallpaper, but his time with extra logos!

Aquaman and the Aquafamily!

Here's Aquaman by artists Chris Batista and Eric Battle! It was a few years before the look on the left was supplanted by the look on the right!

The Aquaduo! Art by Mike Miller, Jim Aparo, and Martin Egeland! Aquaduo logo by me!

And finally... Aquagirl, Aqualad, and Mera all by Jim Aparo! Jim Aparo was an artist who was used to doing it all... he penciled, inked, and lettered a great number of the books he worked on. He also came up with a logo for Aquagirl, and a new one for Aqualad! He also followed up with a version for Aquaman. I don't know if Jim did any coloring on his books, but it wouldn't surprise me to learn he did!
