In the Twilight of the Superheroes crossover pitch that DC Comics bought from Alan Moore but never published (and I will continue reminding them of that until they do), Aquaman had retired from the Justice League, as his son, Aqualad, stepped up to become the new Aquaman.
In today’s Aquaman Annual, we see a similar scenario on the way to becoming reality.
Could this be a foothold on such a story? Well no, it couldn’t. And the reason? Something Alan Moore invented for the DC Universe that they did use. And Aquaman eventually finds am expression of inside his world…
That’s right, folks — a submerged Black Mercy doing what Black Mercies do best. You know, I was half expecting one at the end of the Batman Annual #2 out today — but sadly not.
AQUAMAN ANNUAL #1
(W) Philip Kennedy Johnson (A/CA) Max Fiumara
Aquaman’s dream of unity between surface and sea has come true! A utopia of human and Atlantean ingenuity, and a symbol of harmony between the two cultures, the city of Crownspire is Arthur Curry’s greatest achievement. There Aquaman, Mera, and Tom Curry live in content. But who built Crownspire? Where is Murk? And what exactly is Tom Curry?
Something is very wrong with Aquaman’s world, and if he doesn’t find out soon he may never live to see another day.In Shops: Nov 29, 2017
