Aquaman Released Tomorrow!

It's been a long time coming, but Aquaman has his own comic again! And it's being written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado! Mera, Aquaman's wife, will be featured prominently in the book and will she'll also be a member of the Justice League! Aquagirl is still around and the newly introduced Aqualad should also be making appearances, I hope... Mera was featured prominently in Blackest Night as well as Brightest Day, and Geoff Johns has mentioned time and again how proud he is that Mera was one of his recent breakout characters!

Aquaman has been confirmed as a title that retailers have ordered over 100,000 of, along with Batgirl, Batman and Robin, Batman The Dark Knight, Detective Comics, The Flash, Green Lantern, Superman, and the 200,000+ selling Action Comics, Batman and Justice League. That's awesome for any comic these days, but Aquaman hasn't seen numbers like this since the 70's! In fact, in 1970, the official circulation statement indicates 141,332 copies of Aquaman were distributed. We won't know exact sales figures for a while, but it'll be fun to speculate what numbers Issue 1 will hit! I have a feeling it's going to be a great book!
