I’m abandoning the “Awesome List” title for news round-ups. Sometimes stuff isn’t awesome, but I want to talk about it anyway (see: the way DC’s handling its Aquawar storyline).
*A collection of Aquaman “splash” pages (get it?) by Jim Aparo. [Diversions of the Groovy Kind]
*DC teases some of its Aquawar storyline coming up in Brightest Day. I’ve been easing back into periodical comics after abandoning them for a year and I’d love for Aquaman’s story to be one of the ones I can read as it comes out. Unfortunately, since it’s part of Brightest Day, the only way I can read it is to endure the stories of a bunch of other characters I don’t care anything about. That’s not something I’m willing to do. I’ll have to continue to keep up via The Aquaman Shrine’s excellent summaries. [The Source]
*Greg McElhatton reviews Marineman #s 1 and 2. [Read About Comics]
*Marvel’s working on a Black Panther movie. [The Hollywood Reporter]
*An undersea hunter in Indonesia is able to hold his breath for five minutes and stalk his prey on the ocean floor. It would be unbelievable, except that there’s footage. [Awesome Robot!]
*If the T-shirt he wears on stage is any indication, the lead singer of The Kickback is an Alpha Flight fan. The band also has a song called “Alpha Filght.” I need to listen to some Kickback, I’m thinking. [You Ain’t No Picasso]
*Project: Rooftop, Warren Ellis, Superhero Cocoa, and Superhero of the Month are banding together to ask artists to redesign Aquaman. [Project: Rooftop]
