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:


Predatory sea creatures attack (read: EAT) a small town and a single police officer seeks out Aquaman's help to deal with that



The creatures attack again while Aquman is in the town


So what we have here is:
- Arthur and Mera being a loving, caring couple
- we still get the "LOL, Aquaman, WTF, ROFLOLCOPTER" attitude of the majority and Aquaman showing them he's awesome by being awesome
- we have people who respect Aquaman
- in one issue I went from not caring in the slightest about Mera, to kinda being a bit gay for her. And when I say "a bit" I mean " a lot"
- Namor is no longer my favorite ruler of Atlantis, hence him being so annoyed on my icon. Tough luck, bb.

The weird thing is that Johns seems to have done little to no retconning (outside of returning Orin's biological father to a human guy) straight from Blackest Night to Brightest Day to this series and yet I still don't know what to consider canon - was there still an Aquababy who was killed by Black Manta? What about Garth? Is he still dead? And if so how come we have yet to see Arthur mourn him? Arthur's relationship with Dolphin? Aquaman and Mera's not only numerous years together but numerous separations - I mean, wouldn't she technically "know him" better than anyone else already?

I really do hope Garth coming back soon in the Reboot DCnU.

See, this is one of the titles where I think the reboot works just fine. (Of course, as with Batwoman, it was announced prior to the relaunch, so probably they both benefited from being well thought out beforehand.) All the questions you put forth are questions that do not necessitate being answered in order to go forward with the series, and are also not questions which would be asked by a new reader, as none of those things are referenced in the first two issues. (My guess is that anything seen in BN/BD is still canon, which means Garth, Tula, Dolphin, Junior all existed, but may have slightly altered histories, but could be wrong.)

Wasn't Garth dead for a while before Blackest Night started?

I thought he died IN Blackest Night, but I could be wrong. In either case his existence is acknowledged in the series, which, unless I miss my guess, will be included in 'canon'.

No he was killed in Blackest Night itself by BL Tula, just like Damage and the Hawks (Dolphin and Cerdian were killed off-panel prior to Blackest Night). Prior to that they had shown Garth in a JT Krul-written Titans issue as the new King of Atlantis.
