Ivan Reis To Move From Aquaman To Justice League? (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Ivan Reis has posted on Facebook;

“Really? nobody told me this =) I’ve been working on AQ #0 with #13 ready to go as soon as I have the #0 done… we have a lot of work in AQ to finish….”

Which could be denial, but could also be evading the subject. It’s issue #17 we’ll be looking towards… and it did come from someone who really should know one way or the other…

Ivan Reis first started working with Geoff Johns on Avengers until they were both lured away to DC Comics. But it was Aquaman for the New 52 that was the making of Ivan. Especially with Joe Prado inking, he began to out-Jim-Lee Jim Lee, a fine line art style that was exciting, dynamic and detailed. He’s seen as the main reason Aquaman has done so well in the DC Relaunch.

A couple of months ago, Bleeding Cool received the news that Jim Lee would be leaving Justice League and DC were looking for a replacement both inside and outside the company. We now understand they have settled on Ivan Reis. It makes sense, he has a great relationship with writer Geoff Johns, Reis’ work can be compared to Jim Lee, and it all keeps things happy families.

One would presume that this will occur after issue 16, as there seems to be lots of changes happening to DC books in January. Grant Morrison leaves Action Comics, Rob Liefeld leaving Grifter, and there are signs that there may be a Fourth Wave of a similar size to the Third. If one of them is Jim Lee leaving Justice League, will that be a useful place for him to relaunch WildCATS as also rumoured, or will that wait for another cycle of issues to roll round?

DC Comics declined to confirm one way or the other…
