Aquamen Protect the Seven Seas Starting February 2022

Spinning out of Aquaman: The Becoming and Black Manta is Aquamen, a new ongoing comic book series. Aquamen is by the creative team of Chuck Brown, Brandon Thomas, Sami Basri, and Adriano Lucas. It comes to shelves in February 2022!

When a suicide bomber in Middle America is revealed as an Atlantean sleeper agent seemingly gone rogue, the Aquamen—Arthur Curry and Jackson Hyde—are on the case. But it soon becomes clear that the tragedy was not just a single bad actor, but the beginnings of a much larger and more dangerous chain reaction…and the heart of an explosive Atlantean conspiracy! If Arthur’s not careful, the secrets he’s keeping—from Mera, Tula, Tempest, Atlantis, the surface, and even Jackson—could cause a rift from which the Aquamen might never recover!

Aquamen #1, written by Chuck Brown and Brandon Thomas with art by Sami Basri and Adriano Lucas, launches on February 22! The debut issue of the ongoing new series will have a cover by Travis Moore, card stock variant covers by both Kael Ngu and Nick Robles, and a 1:25 ratio variant cover by Jim Lee and Alex Sinclair. Additionally, fans will be able to purchase a Black History Month variant cover by Alexis Franklin.

Also in February 2022, the final issue of Black Manta will be a can’t-miss issue leading directly into the Aquamen launch! It’s villain versus villain as Black Manta fights to stop Devil Ray, whose eyes are set on Atlantis but whose ambitions might very well bring about the end of the world. Will Manta finally be able to own his roots, his power, and his flaws to save Atlantis…and himself?

Black Manta #6, written by Chuck Brown with art by Valentine de Landro, a cover by David Talaski and a card stock variant cover by Sanford Greene, arrives in comic shops on February 8—two weeks before Aquamen #1 arrives!

And the final issue of Aquaman: The Becoming leads directly into the Aquamen launch as well! Alongside family old and new, Jackson Hyde races to stop the next big undersea terrorist attack—and this time, Mera’s the target! But if he hopes to overcome his greatest enemy yet and protect the people he loves most, he’ll have to stop waiting for someone to give him permission to lead. It’s time for Jackson to reach out and take the mantle of Aquaman!

Aquaman: The Becoming #6, written by Brandon Thomas with pencils by Diego Olortegui, inks by Wade von Grawbadger, color by Adriano Lucas, a cover by David Talaski and a card stock variant cover by Khary Randolph, arrives in comic shops on February 15—one week before Aquamen #1!

Milestone’s Blood Syndicate Returns in 2022, Plus an Animated Film and Compendium!

The announcement of The Milestone Initiative in collaboration with Ally as part of DC’s Next Generation DC program was one of many mind-boggling announcements to come from this all-day celebration of DC and its passionate fans. In a discussion moderated by actor Echo Kellum (Curtis Holt/Mr. Terrific, “Arrow”), Milestone producer Reggie Hudlin and Milestone co-founder Denys Cowan shared more details about the future of Static, Icon and Rocket, Hardware, and the Dakota Universe.

After confirming that writer Randy McKinnon (Safety) is currently writing the script for the Static Shock feature film in production with Warner Bros. and Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier Society, Hudlin and Cowan dropped the bombshell that Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are working on a Milestone animated movie based on a screenplay by Hardware Season One writer Brandon Thomas. In addition to his Milestone work, Thomas is writing several Aquaman-focused series for DC: Aquaman: The Becoming, Aquaman/Green Arrow: Deep Target, and the 2022 Aquamen series (co-written with Black Manta series writer Chuck Brown), in addition to a two-part Outsiders story in Batman: Urban Legends as part of DC’s Batman: Fear State comic book event. Thomas has also written several critically acclaimed series such as Excellence, and Noble, in addition to his own creator-owned series, The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury.

This will be the first time that the city of Dakota will be featured in animation since the beloved Static Shock animated series which aired from 2000-2004; episodes are now available to watch for free with a subscription to HBO Max.

As the conversation turned to Milestone publishing, Reggie and Denys enthusiastically shared news that Milestone fans have been eagerly awaiting since DC FanDome 2020: an all-new Blood Syndicate comic book series is in the works for 2022. A writer and artist on the title is still to be announced, but both Milestone execs both talked about how Blood Syndicate has been the book that Milestone fans have been clamoring for, even as they received incredible praise for the current series, Static Season One, Icon and Rocket Season One, and Hardware Season One.

Regarding the current series, both Cowan and Hudlin not only confirmed that the characters will be appearing in each other’s current titles, confirming a connected “Dakotaverse,” but that “Season Two” plans for these titles are underway.

In addition to the new periodical series and a Milestone anthology releasing in February 2022, as a part of DC’s Black History Month celebrations, Cowan revealed his cover for Milestone Compendium One, available February 1, 2022. This massive, 1,300-page softcover is a must-have tribute for Milestone and comic book fans, as well as the perfect gateway for new fans to discover the legacy of the Dakotaverse and its greatest storytellers, including Cowan, the late Dwayne McDuffie (also a Milestone co-founder), Ivan Velez, John Rozum, Frazer Irving, M.D. Bright, and more.

The compendium collects issues #1-12 of Blood SyndicateHardware #1 -12, Icon #1-10, Static #1-8, Xombi #1-8, and Shadow Cabinet #0.
