Two things (the first snarky and if anyone finds offensive I'll go ahead and delete the comment)

1) Why this isn't racist at all! You sure this is DC?

2) Aw, man, why do the creators love to fuck with the married couples? Stop it, just stop it!

2) Because they hate happiness. And Christmas.

CHRISTMAS KILLED MY FATHER!

Haha, that's just a joke. I killed my father.

But how are we supposed to find them interesting without bucketloads of angst? Even the sweet moments must have that bitter tinge, goddammit!

How soon before they bring up the "you never told him?" (whatever it was that WW was alluding to) that Mera was hiding from the BN: WW mini. You just know that sequence wasn't an accident or just Rucka's whimsy.

I know that most of the BN tie-ins had some editorial input, but it wouldn't be the first time a side mention got dropped after the writer who wrote it was gone.

What am I saying? It's potential for angst and disharmony, of course it'll come back.

By having bucketloads of cutesy romance?

To be fair, the time to complain about them messing with this married couple was back when they killed off Aquababy.

Which will be the next thing Arthur summons--

Oh, dammit. Now I've got a plot seed for some sort of metaphysical "closure" or something regarding this concept: Arthur will continue summoning dead sea animals until he comes to turns (ETA: terms) terms with being resurrected, and Arthur, Jr. not.

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; I just wanted a tasteless joke! I didn't expect an actual plausible explanation for what's going on with the guy!

This. Once that happened every scene between them had a tragic tone.

The racism is elsewhere in the issue when they arbitrarily kill off another non-white character. (in this case, Jason Rusch's mother)

Well, they refer to her being dead, and she was alive (yet divorced and consindering reconciliation with his father) before.

So throw yet another non-white corpse on the fire.

. . .

I guess the Brightest Day needs to be . . .

No, I'm not gonna make that joke. Somebody at DC needs a stern talking to. If that doesn't work, firings.

Because a certain EiC and the Brain Trust has formed a group called The Marriage/Happiness Haters Club and it's not just exclusive to Marvel creators.

Well, as a proud member of the Marriage Haters Club (I'm all for happiness, though. That's why I got divorced.), let me just say -- Nyah, Nyah, Nyah.

Well, in the panel where the orca (sorry, I live in Seattle, it's the law to call 'em that here) attacks him, it almost looked like his arm had been torn off, so I felt I was on familiar ground... ;)

"2) Aw, man, why do the creators love to fuck with the married couples? Stop it, just stop it!"

How are they fucking with Aquaman and Mera here? From what I've read of the character, this is probably the most blissful period they've had as a couple since they were introduced.
