This week on the show: David Gallaher, Wonder Woman kicked to the curb, and our 300th Episode with you as our guest!
Show Notes after the Jump!
This week, Thor, the God of thunder, and Aquaman, the King of Atlantis enter the ring to battle it out. Will the uru hammer beat the the fish man?
Once Geoff Johns finishes his love affair with the Flash, the DC scribe will turn his attention to Aquaman. That’s the news filtering out of WonderCon, and Johns’ own Twitter post.
Announced at Megacon: After BRIGHTEST DAY I’ll be moving over to a new book – AQUAMAN #1 coming later this year!! :)
So, anyone want to take bets that we’re going to see a total revamp and return to the Silver Age version of the hero?
I don’t think the Wonder Woman costume thing is going to go away anytime soon, so we’ll continue to poke and prod around to find other takes on the event. Such as today’s Art Appreciation Moment of the day featuring the work of Chris Samnee.
And if you think the above image is all there is, you really need to take the jump.
In a time when the planet is going through one of the worst man made ecological disasters of all time, Greenpeace is really sticking it to Big Petroleum by having a contest for graphic designers where they can show their hatred for BP.
Aquaman isn’t the only one to succumb to the company who wouldn’t know their asshole from a hole in the ocean spewing millions of gallons of raw crude into the ecosystem, another beloved character is dead as well.
I hear that Aquaman returns from the dead in Brightest Day #2, and it’s been a while since we’ve run an Aquaman piece, and this one by Ray-Anthony Height hits it on the head.
Specifically issue #2 of the series, according to Geoff Johns.
â€œBrightest Dayâ€™ is about second chances. I think itâ€™s been obvious from day one that there are major plans for the heroes and villains from Aquaman to take center stage in the DC Universe, among many others, post-Blackest Night. â€˜Brightest Dayâ€™ is not a banner or a vague catch-all direction for the DC Universe, it is a story. Nor is â€˜Brightest Dayâ€™ a sign that the DC Universe is going to be all about â€˜light and brightyâ€™ superheroes. Some second chances work outâ€¦some donâ€™t.â€
Time to bring the greatest superhero of all time* back into the spotlight with this song about talking to fish.
* Yes, that is sarcasm.
Last I check, the fishman was trying to steal the hearts and souls of his loved one as parts of his body decomposed. For those who would rather remember the King of Atlantis in his hey day, check out the cover to the upcoming Brave and the Bold #32.
One of the first female comic book creators, Ramona Fradon, finally gets her own art book, the “dynamic” way.
Long time fans of Metamorpho, Aquaman , Aqualad, Plastic Man, The Fantastic Four and Super Friends are quite familiar with the work of legendary artist, Ramona Fradon, but not until now will they know the whole story of Ramona’s incredible career in comics, as Dynamic Forces is pleased to announce the upcoming Ramona Fradon Retrospective.
For the first time ever the DEFINITIVE retrospective of Ramona Fradon’s 45 year career will be presented in The Ramona Fradon Storyteller Book. The Ramona Fradon Storyteller Book will be a hardcover book with over 200 full-color pages to highlight the magnificent career of artistic legend, plus never-before-seen sketches and character designs.
If you thought last week’s Sing-a-Long was strange, check out this parody of Rocketman featuring one of the lamest characters in comic history. Warning: Brief Robin nudity… yeah, don’t ask…
This week Batman’s life hangs in the balance when he is poisoned by Chemo, who is under the control of the evil Brain. The Atom races to the rescue with Aquaman by shrinking down and entering Batman’s bloodstream. While Aquaman and the Atom battle the infection deep inside Batman’s body, Batman struggles to end Chemo’s rampage and defeat the Brain! This week’s teaser features Elongated Man and Plastic Man teaming up to derail a bank heist and capture the criminal Baby Face.
One more clip after the jump.
