GEOFF JOHNS Still Writes Comics, Part 3
Geoff Johns will be writing a new Aquaman series following the end of Brightest Day, the writer and DC Entertainment chief creative officer confirmed on Twitter.The announcement was made Saturday at the MegaCon convention in Orlando. As one of the 12 DC Comics characters brought back to life at the end of Blackest Night, Aquaman has been one of the main players of the biweekly Brightest Day series (co-written by Johns and Peter Tomasi), which is set to end with issue #24 in April. On his Twitter account, Johns, who appeared at MegaCon's "A Spotlight on DC Comics" panel Saturday afternoon, wrote:
"Announced at Megacon: After BRIGHTEST DAY I'll be moving over to a new book - AQUAMAN #1 coming later this year!! :)"In a December interview with Newsarama, Johns said of Aquaman, "In my opinion, he’s up there with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and Green Lantern," and confirmed that he would be working with the character in a 2011 comic. Whether or not Aquaman is an ongoing or miniseries is unclear at this point, as is an artist on the title. The last ongoing Aquaman series, Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis, ended in 2007 with issue #57.
