Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Geoff Johns is off Aquaman after issue #25

I'm sad to see him go. Johns revitalized the character, and the book has been among the best of the New 52.

That's too bad. I didn't initially pick up Aquaman but after reading the Throne of Atlantis tie-ins with Justice League I ended up picking up all the back issues I liked it so much.

I'll probably stop reading Aquaman then. I was never hugely into it to begin with.

More changes!

Jeff Parker is Johns' replacement on Aquaman. Manapul and Bucellato are leaving The Flash.

This is too bad. Aquaman doesn't have a great history when it comes to staying power. Unless a really powerful writing team is put on the title, I can see it coming up for cancellation.

For example, if Johns had been the writer on Firestorm or Hawkman then Aquaman might have been the title to be cancelled by now.

EDIT: Sorry OdoWan, I posted this right after you. I am not familiar with Jeff Parker's work. What has he done? Any good?

Damn. I really like the Flash. Whoever picks up for them has big shoes to fill as far as I'm concerned.

Knew this day would come. Frankly pleased it's taken two years, thought it might happen at issue #12 or #18. Aquaman has long been a favorite of mine. Him being grossly treated as if he was just a giant seahorse riding fish talker by people stuck in the 80s with no understanding of the character made it fun to root for him also.

Here's to hoping we see an issue #50....provided DC doesn't reboot everything in another two years.

Ugh, Jeff Parker. After the hatchet job he did to Gaiman's Eternal and 1602 and retconning Aaron Stack back to Data, I really am not looking forward to this. He'll probably retcon Mera back to her pre-Johns personality.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

We knew this day was coming since I believe it was rumoured that Geoff Johns was going to leave earlier than he did, unless that was something Rich actually got wrong. Jeff Parker has been hit or miss with me. I will continue with the title for a bit...but will probably end up dropping it. Johns work with the character was one of the reasons why I was reading the book.

Jeff Parker want's the Flash.

I have no idea if he's voiced this desire.

But the Flash means that he can write about Gorilla City.

Aquaman means that Atlantis can tenuously go to war with Gorilla City.

I know that his is the evil that lurks in the heart of this particular man.

Jeff Parker is great. He's one of those guys along with Dan Slott and Fred Van Lente who were having fun in comics back in the days when fun was a bad word, so I have high hopes for Aquaman.

It's funny, I have the opposite reaction. I'm worried I won't want to read the Flash anymore. It is probably my favourite of the New 52 titles.
