J'Onn J'Onzz (and maybe Aquaman) is DEAD!?!?
"DEAD ON ARCHIVAL" item from Rich Johnston's latest "Lying In The Gutters" column at Comic Book Resources...
"So. If Warner won’t let DC Comics kill off Batman in “Final Crisis," who can DC get away with introducing to the Grim Reaper? I mean it has to be decent names, but it also has to be someone that a major franchise license isn’t totally resting on.
From Geoff Johns’ CBR interview: “There are still tons of characters to write. Aquaman is a big one. I have very specific ideas for him. Very specific."
From the letters page of this month's Johnny DC "Justice League Unlimited," in response to a young reader who doesn't like the changes made to Aquaman: "Fans of Aquaman's original look can look forward to a new comic book later in 2008."
May be the original look, but will it be the original character?
I only ask, because the two names marked for karking I’ve been given by a DC source are Martian Manhunter and Aquaman."
I suppose I'd rather run the "J'Onn J'Onzz Memorial Blog" than the "Remember the days when Martian Manhunter was a good guy?" shrine. Hope K'Yle R'Ayner has fun during his run before some geek inevitably brings the O.G. back. That's right y'all! Roh Kar in da hay-ouse!
Meanwhile, banner wonder Mike Netzer also makes an appearance at Lying in the Gutters this week, so check it out!
