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!

Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 Gets a Second Printing

Following the news that the first four issues of Superman: Son of Kal-El are being reprinted, the fan excitement for the series continues to grow as DC will also be reprinting the milestone fifth issue of the series. If you missed out on ordering the first time, fans can now order a copy of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 at their local comic book shops by Sunday, November 28 and it will be available on the same day as Superman: Son of Kal-El #6, Tuesday, December 28.

From writer Tom Taylor, artist John Timms, colorist HI-FI and letterer Dave Sharpe, issue #5 of Superman: Son of Kal-El is now available in comic book shops and digital retailers. After initially striking up a friendship with reporter Jay Nakamura, he and Jon become romantically involved in the pages of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5. Following a scene where Superman mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone that he can, Jay is there to care for the Man of Steel.

Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 second printing features a special version of the variant cover originally created by Travis Moore and Tamra Bonvillain for the fifth issue.

Jon Kent Comes Out as Bisexual this November

Today, October 11, is National Coming Out Day and DC has revealed that this November, Jon Kent, the Superman of Earth and son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, will come out as bisexual.

Writer Tom Taylor said in the announcement:

I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros. share this idea. Superman’s symbol has always stood for hope, for truth and for justice. Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics.

Just like his father before him, Jon Kent has fallen for a reporter. After initially striking up a friendship with reporter Jay Nakamura, he and Jon become romantically involved in the pages of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 from writer Tom Taylor and artist John Timms. Following a scene where Superman mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone that he can, Jay is there to care for the Man of Steel.

Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 features a main cover (left) and inks by Timms, colors by Gabe Eltaeb and lettering by Dave Sharpe. Variant covers were created by (center) Travis Moore and Tamra Bonvillain, and Inhyuk Lee (right).

Faster than fate. As powerful as hope. Able to lift us all. For all his great power, Jon Kent can’t save everyone, but that won’t stop him from trying. How much can Earth’s new Superman do before this Man of Steel buckles? And when he does, who swoops in to save Superman?

Superman: Son of Kal-El #1-3 are available now at participating digital retailers and comic book shops. Superman: Son of Kal-El #4 and #5 will be available on Tuesday, October 19 and Tuesday, November 9, respectively.

DC’s Future Post Future State Becomes Clearer as Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, Swamp Thing, Teen Titans Academy, Green Lantern, Wonder Girl, and Justice League Dark Announced

Wonder Woman #770

After January and February’s Future State mini-event for DC Comics, March and beyond will see a mix of new and returning series as expected. Many of the series will feature their Future State creative teams continuing on to the series.

Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad will take over Wonder Woman with issue #770 in March. The two will be joined by interior and cover artist Travis Moore. The series will pick up after the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal which has put Wonder Woman at the center of events leading the heroes in their resistance.

Orbiting Wonder Woman will be Wonder Girl from writer and artist Joëlle Jones. That series will star Yara Flor who is getting a major push by DC as Flor will possibly be getting a television series at The CW.

A new Green Lantern series will launch written by Geoffrey Thorne with art by Tom Raney. They’re the creative team behind “The Last Lanterns” story in the Future State: Green Lantern comic.

Justice League Dark will return in March written by Ram V. who was also writing the series before its break due to the “Endless Winter” event. It will feature art by Xermanico.

Wonder Woman #770 variant

Tim Sheridan and Rafa Sandoval will launch Teen Titans Academy. The series will focus on the launch of a Teen Titans Academy by members of the New Teen Titans. That series spins directly out of Future State: Teen Titans which tells a future tale of the academy.

With a film on its way, it’s not surprising that the Suicide Squad returns. Robbie Thompson, who will take on their story during Future State, will write the ongoing series with art by Eduardo Pansica. We can also see the DC live-action and comics aligning a bit more as Peacemaker (played by John Cena in the film) takes center stage. The character will not only be in The Suicide Squad film but is also getting his own series on HBO Max.

Swamp Thing is back courtesy of writer Ram V. and artist Mike Perkins. That duo is also the team behind the Swamp Thing Future State comic.

James Tynion IV with artist Jorge Jimenez will return to Batman and Tynion has another Batman series in the works with artist Guillem March.

This issue, it’s the shocking death of Deadshot!

The man who never misses has been on the front lines of Task Force X since its inception—bomb in his neck, gun in his hand. He’s seen teammates blow up and countries fall. He’s faced down heroes and villains alike. Now the Suicide Squad has one final mission: bring down the man who enslaved them, then put a bounty on their heads when they escaped: Ted Kord.

But to finish the job, the world’s deadliest assassin will have to do the one thing he’s never done for the cause: die!
