Dan Abnett Goes Exclusive with DC Comics
DC Entertainment adds more exclusive creative talent to their roster. Dan Abnett has gone with the company to “create comic book content solely for the company’s DC and Vertigo imprints.” In addition to writing Aquaman: Rebirth #1 and Aquaman #1 in June, Abnett will also pen Titans: Rebirth #1, continuing threads from his storyline in his current Titans Hunt miniseries. Shipping twice monthly, the Aquaman art team includes talented artists Phil Briones, Scot Eaton, Oscar Jimenez, Jesus Merino and Brad Walker, while the monthly Titans will see artist Brett Booth accompany Abnett on the book.
Aquaman continues the story of Arthur Curry, the King of Atlantis, as he seeks to reconcile his dual heritage of land and sea. A citizen of both worlds, Arthur seeks to unite Atlantis with the rest of the global community. But his plans will be thrown into chaos with the return of his arch-nemesis Black Manta, who seeks to destroy the careful balance of peace, and bring Aquaman’s world crashing down.
Titans continues story beats from Abnett’s run on Titans Hunt, with teammates Wally West, Donna Troy, Arsenal, Garth, Lilith and Nightwing all reunited after the disastrous consequences of having their memories lost. Now, with their memories intact they will attempt to reunite as a team, and stop the demon that broke them apart and is a threat to reality itself.
Abnett makes his Rebirth debut on Aquaman: Rebirth #1 (on sale June 8) and Aquaman #1 (on sale June 22).
Here’s hoping DC allows Abnett to play with their toys in space. An Abnett written series focusing on the New Gods has us drooling.
