The Megacon, in Orlando Fl, is being held this weekend and saw the announcement that Geoff Johns will be writing a new Acquaman, once Brightest Day is wrapped up.
Johns tweeted the following, confirming:
"Announced at Megacon: After BRIGHTEST DAY I'll be moving over to a new book - AQUAMAN #1 coming later this year!!"
Reportedely, this is one of two new ongoings that Johns will soon be on.
"A Comic Blog" was at the DC Panel and tweeted the following:
"Geoff Johns on two new monthly series. One is...Aquaman!"
"Asked about a rumored project between Grant Morrison and Geoff Johns. Dan just said, "Yup." Laughed & moved on"
Now, I have no idea what the project is (or even if DiDo was serious), but I think I've heard mention of a Jim Lee Justice League - with Johns and Morrison onboard - that would be something!
We know Tony Bedard, Ardian Syaf & Vicente Cifuentes are doing a "Flashpoint" version of Aquaman with Flashpoint: Emperor Aquaman, three issues I believe. I suppose Johns could be doing the Aquaman ongoing at the same time; correct me if I am wrong, but the "Flashpoint" versions of their DC counterparts are not replacing the main titles (ala X-Men Age of Apocalypse).
Green Lantern, Flash and now Acquaman - Geoff Johns seems to be making his rounds. Any guesses as to who might be next?
UPDATED: Ivan Reis and Joe Prado are the artists.
