"Black Manta is this wonderful mirror, dark mirror of Aquaman. And his sole purpose is to destroy Aquaman.

And I want to make Manta not just one of his great villains. Manta previously was a guy who cropped up for six or seven issues every now and then as one of his arch foes. But this is much more.

Aquaman is the key character in the comic book, but Mera and Black Manta are the other absolute co-stars. If it was a TV show, their faces would be in the credits too, because this is so much about those characters.

"Aquaman is one of the sort of big six of DC. He's not a Batman or Superman, but he's absolutely one of the first division heroes. And I've always liked him for that reason. And I like him for the same reason, I think, that I like a lot of cosmic characters, because he's not just a guy who puts on a costume — he's a guy from another world. He's a guy from Atlantis.

He's not wearing a superhero costume. He's wearing royal chain mail.

And he's not just a hero who saves people and does good deeds. He's got this responsibility. He rules Atlantis. He rules a whole nation. He controls the sea, which is two-thirds of the planet. He's the most global hero

"I’m not looking to match early ‘90s storytelling so much as I’m trying to convey who Aquaman was at that time. Also, a year under the dome has had a significant impact. In fact, that’s one of the funnest aspects of this whole event. Not only are you picking up a character from a different point in their life, but the things they’ve seen and done under the dome push them in unpredictable directions." - Tony Bedard

From writer Cullen Bunn and artist Trevor McCarthy, we have a new Aquaman run. I'm a bit hit or miss when it comes to Bunn's work (love Sinestro and Fearless Defenders, but most of his Deadpool stuff and Magneto leaves me a bit cold), but hey, he's teamed up with an artist I really like. So let's see what we get to look forward to with his upcoming run in this sneak peek.

I am indebted to the invaluable resource, www.titanstower.com for a couple of news items I'd missed (and I have to praise them even more for keeping going when about 90% of the history of the comics the site was created to cover was wiped out by the DCnU. Check it out, it's a great site.)

First up, perhaps the last character I expected to get revamped, since she died in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, and if I'm honest wasn't really missed TOO much..

Tula, the original Aquagirl )
Then we have the new identity for Bette Kane, the original Bat-Girll... Umm... Flamebird... Ummm I mean...

Really? THAT'S the name they're going with? )

And finally

For the honour of... Horde Prime? )

Seriously, is there anyone out there who thought "So, that 52 thing... I bet that Aquaman is going to be the best thing to come out of it"? I did not expect to care about it and yet, it is my favorite 52 title at the moment.

Here are a few pages from Aquaman 2 to show you why I love it so much:
