Good news for Justice League. Bad news for Aquaman.

Edited by deadpool25mm

Well at least Aquaman looks the same as the Aquaman series lol, wonder why he is attacking the JL....

guess thats how the Atlantain war starts..

Good now the issues won't be delayed like they were in the past with Jim Lee's busy schedule lol

Posted by kennybaese

Wait, how does their taking on this book mean that Reis and Prado are leaving Aquaman? Or am I missing that somewhere?

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Oh no Jones is leaving Aquaman :(

Posted by the_fallen11

Oh man! I'm gonna miss Jim Lee but if I could pick anyone to replace him it would be Ivan Reis. I'm stoked! But I feel this raises a bigger question: ....what about Aquaman?

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

Where's Flash? They need a GL to replace the missing one. Preferably Kyle. He can be in two books.

uh, what happened to Barry??

Posted by CircularLogic

I think this confirms that Johns is in fact staying on Aquaman!!! Plus a whole arc built around what used to be the biggest joke of a character DC comics had? Things really have changed.

Posted by Outside_85
  1. Well it looks better on some, like Cyborg doesn't look half as clunky as he did under Lee...but I wish DC could keep it consistent on how big Diana's bracelets are supposed to be.
  2. After reading the words of GJ here's my advise to him; How about you actually make a world and let the paint dry before you decide to rebuild it all over again?
  3. I dont know, but is this upcoming story not just another attempt at making Aquaman seem cool?
  4. Why isn't Johns stopping too? :(

i hope Aquaman doesn't suffer because of this...

As long as Ivan Reis and Geoff Johns doesn't leave Aquaman, I'll be happy.

Somebody's been watching Robot Chicken lately...
Posted by EvanTheMexiJew

YES! I've always wanted Reis to draw Batman more! The way he makes his eyes all dark is incredible, and he makes every character he draws look ten times as epic as they were before

Posted by mikeclark1982

Where is The Flash? Where is Barry?

No. Reis might be leaving Aquaman. Difference. I hope to God that Johns isn't leaving Aquaman.

I think Reis might actually leave Aquaman, but as long as they get a quality artist to take his place, say maybe Phillip Tan, then I would be fine with that. As long as Johns doesn't leave Aquaman as well. *knock on wood*

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I love Jim Lee :(

Posted by Ganthetsward20

@deadpool25mm: Aquaman's getting his revenge just like in the Robot Chicken DC Special!

Posted by Zeeguy91
@StMichalofWilson: LOL. But on a serious note, I think that might have something to do with the Trinity War event. Remember in the splash page when it looked like Aquaman was fighting the Justice League.

Because an artist can only do so much at one time. I can't remember any artist who has worked on multiple titles simultaneously
Posted by kennybaese

@Zeeguy91: Point. I guess I just didn't see the announcement that he was leaving Aquaman and didn't think of that. It makes sense. Kind of a bummer.

Posted by RedOwl_1

Looks awesome!

(Geoff WHY U NO GO TOO/INSTEAD ?!?)

This!!!

So long Batman and Friends hello Justice League. :)

Posted by Funrush

Wow, exactly as Bleedingcool predicted.

I for one am glad Lee is off the book. Don't get me wrong, I love his art. But, he's not good at making deadlines, and the fact that he can only do four issues every six months really limits Johns's storylines.

Posted by jesusdisciple001

maybe wally gets a glory return?

Posted by ultimatepunchrod

Good choice. What will Jim Lee be doing now? I know he's a busy man nowadays, but he can't keep his art from the world! He's just too good.

Yeah, writing takes a lot less time and effort than art duties does.

Posted by microwave25

This sucks. It seems DC are incapable of leaving things alone. Aquaman was incredible with Reis on it.

If Jim Lee can't make deadlines then he should stop drawing monthlies and focus on all the corporate nonsense he seems to love doing. The guy irritates me to no end.

Posted by Utandi

I love both Mr. Lee and Mr. Reis. They are both amazing artists and I'm very excited about this news.

Only Aquaman's face on the cover of #16 is weird...

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

LOVE Captain Marvel joining the team, means that he starts as a good guy and not some jerky kid with super powers and is a jerk. Sort of think the Justice League should add another female member though. Someone as powerful as Wonder Woman I guess, since they are all super duper powerful (except Batman, but he is Batman so...) but some other female member too. But who? Zatanna maybe? Power Girl? Starfire? Batwoman? Who do you guys think would work?

Posted by Kervan21

I haven't been picking up Aquaman, but when I've flipped through it at the comic store, the artwork does look awesome. So I'm ok with it.

Here's my problem. DC is saying that Jim Lee is done with his art duties as of Issue 15. Well, Tony Daniel is doing art for # 13-14, then Reis picks up at 15. So in other words, 12 was Jim Lee's last issue!! I really wish we could have had one or two more issues with Jim Lee's art on JL before moving on, or that DC had gone ahead and announced that Lee was done as of 12 back when they said that Daniel was filling in for 13-14. *Sigh* oh well.

I hope that Lee will be doing a book that I'll be interested in, as it's hard for me to go long stretches without seeing his artwork. Please let it be a new Superman book with Scott Snyder!!

Reis' Cyborg is better than Lee's. SOrry Jim, but I have to say so.

Posted by Jake Fury

People actually think DC is going to take Johns off this book?

Posted by nappystr8

I'm not surprised, but I'm worried what will happen to Aquaman now. Jim Lee has been wasted on Justice League, and it seems that now Ivan Reis will be wasted on Justice League as well. That is about the best replacement artist DC could pick. But I dropped that book despite Lee's art, and Reis will not convince me to come back on board. I have some hope for JLA though, that book feels like something Johns is honestly interested in exploring, whereas he's doing Justice League just because it has to exist.

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

Yes!!! Cyborg finally looks decent!!!

Posted by jwalser3

Issue 16 looks epic!
