Aquaman 80th Anniversary Special

All hail the king!

Really excited that the Aquaman 80th Anniversary 100 Page Super Spectacular hits the newsstands today featuring my story Between Two Shores. It was a real honour to dive into Aquaman’s history (pun intended) to find inspiration for this eight-pager, which focuses on one of my favourite DC monsters of recent years, the Trench.

My creator comps arrived just in time for release, and don’t they just look amazing, the main cover joined by eight variants that showcase the King of the Seven Seas through eight glorious decades:

Between Two Shores, features art by Scot Eaton, inks by Norm Rapmund, colours by Hi-Fi and letters by Rob Leigh.

Here’s the full solicitation:

After defending the seven seas for eight decades, it’s time to throw Aquaman a party! This all-star-filled anthology spans across the ocean king’s legacy, not just celebrating his own triumphs, but also those of his greatest allies and enemies. We look at his ongoing romance with Mera, his bitter rivalry with Black Manta, his brotherly conflict with Ocean Master, and the inspiration he lends to younger heroes like Tempest and Jackson Hyde, the newest Aqualad.

It would not be an Aquaman celebration without also looking at how he’s changed over the years, including a brand-new tale of Bombshells Aquaman.

This special brings together Aqua talent past, present, and future, including reuniting fan-favorite creative teams such as Geoff Johns and Paul Pelletier, Dan Jurgens and Steve Epting, alongside Dan Watters and Miguel Mendonca. Plus, two of the stories are prequels to two new Aquaman miniseries launching in September, kicking off another 80 years of undersea adventure!
