IGN has posted a review of Aquaman #30. Short summary, it gets an 8.5.

People are always coming up with ideas for an Aquaman movie. Here's another. I don't agree with everything, but I don't entirely disagree, either.

DC for July

Against my better judgement, I put together a page on the wiki just for this month's solicits, which are, frankly annoying.

In addition to Aquaman's standard book and Aquaman and the Others, Aquaman will also have an annual. That's not the annoying part. Then Justice League #32 is resolicited, along with a new solicit for Justice League #33. Mildly annoying.

No, the thing I find annoying are the solicits for a whole bunch of Future's End one-shots, to be published in September! The reason for the advance solicits appears to be the 3-D motion covers, which DC underestimated the demand for last time. Considering how annoyingly worthless those Forever Evil 3-D motion covers were (virtually no covers took advantage of the motion), unless they give me a really good reason to order the 3-D version this time, I'll be opting for the standard covers. And there are NO preview images or creative teams listed for the one-shots, so I'm not seeing any reasons. I found the Forever Evil 3-D covers to be utterly underwhelming.


In all honesty, I also find the cover to this month's Aquaman to be... well, ugly. I understand that guys like big boobs, but there's a limit to what looks good. Frankly those things look neither real nor good on Mera. Seriously, they wouldn't even have to be too dramatically smaller to make it look good. Just put them in the right place (her left breast is drooping so badly she looks malformed) and shrink them so they aren't almost as big as her head. Mera's figure is the only problem with the cover. The composition is ok, background interesting... but the giant malformed/misplaced breasts just make the thing look wrong.

While we're waiting for solicits...

Check out a five-page preview of Aquaman #30 over at DC Comics. Five pages!? That's a quarter of the book, right there!


Update (4:40pm): The same preview is also posted at Comics Continuum now.

Dan Jurgens talks with IGN about Aquaman and the Others.

Letterer Todd Klein comments on Aquaman #29. He likes it.

How about some old (2010) Project Rooftop Aquaman fan art?

And let's finish with an Aquaman pictogram from Teddy Hahn's Superhero Pictograms.

Batman and...

So Aquaman is on the cover of Batman and Robin #33, as seen here. It's not clear whether he'll be in the book, or just appears on the cover. The book will be shipping in July.

DC for July - Aquaman Annual?

Tako's Nonsense has posted a list of DC books for July 2014, and it includes a couple of items of interest to Aquaman fans.

The most dramatic thing is that all of DC's regular books will apparently be tie-ins to Future's End. The next most exciting item is Aquaman Annual #2. Very nice, if true. We already know about New Suicide Squad #1, which will feature Black Manta.

I will note that this list hasn't been confirmed... so I'll be posting the regular solicits as soon as they start to appear from DC (which could be today, who knows?). But in the meantime, it's some news to chew on.

Aquaman fan checklist for July 2014 books:
  • Aquaman Futures End #1
  • Aquaman Annual #2
  • Aquaman and the Others Futures End #1
  • New Suicide Squad #1
  • Justice League Futures End #1
