I was reading Sword of Sorcery, is it going to finish out it's arc?

Firestorm is overdue and I wasn't reading the others.

And Guy is right, Aquaman has been cool since easily 1994. People still holding to the seahorse riding mockery of late 70's/early 80s Superfriends cartoons need to revisit the character.
When I first started reading comics in the seventies, Aquaman was a badass environmentalist. Somewhere down the road he got depowered somewhat. The problem I had with the nineties version was that DC tried to make him too much like Namor from Marvel, and that really isn't what he is. I really like the new take and his feelings of wanting to belong to a nation or a culture but the culture not wanting him. I think that has a real sense of modernity in our global but regional society--and it gives him a real sense of angst without turning him into a brooding and dark character.
