Aquamen Series Announced by DC

No Comments

If one Aquaman isn’t enough, DC Comics has what you’re looking for. The publisher has announced a brand new ongoing series, Aquamen, which is set to begin its run in February of next year. The series will spin directly out of the events of Black Manta and Aquaman: The Becoming. Arthur Curry is going to have some superhero company in the form of Jackson Hyde. 


For those unfamiliar, Jackson Hyde is the son of Black Manta, Aquaman’s biggest foe. Eventually, Hyde goes on to become Aqualad. So the team-up actually does make sense. The first issue of the series will be written by Chuck Brown and Brandon Thomas. Sami Basri and Adriano Lucas are handling the artwork. DC has released some early artwork, which we’ve included below for you to check out. 

Aquamen #1 will have a cover by Travis Moore, as well as card stock variant covers by both Kael Ngu and Nick Robles. There will also be a 1:25 ratio variant cover by Jim Lee and Alex Sinclair. Plus, fans will be able to purchase a Black History Month variant cover by Alexis Franklin. It is also worth nothing this is being described as an ongoing series, not a miniseries. 


Here is the synopsis for Aquamen.


When a suicide bomber in Middle America is revealed as an Atlantean sleeper agent seemingly gone rogue, the Aquamen—Arthur Curry and Jackson Hyde—are on the case. But it soon becomes clear that the tragedy was not just a single bad actor, but the beginnings of a much larger and more dangerous chain reaction…and the heart of an explosive Atlantean conspiracy! If Arthur’s not careful, the secrets he’s keeping—from Mera, Tula, Tempest, Atlantis, the surface, and even Jackson—could cause a rift from which the Aquamen might never recover!

The final issue of Black Manta, which hits shelves in February 2022, will lead directly into the newly announced series. That series is written Chuck Brown with art by Valentine de Landro. Similarly, the final issue of Aquaman: The Becoming will lead into the new book as well. That issue publishes one week before Aquamen launches. It is written by written by Brandon Thomas with pencils by Diego Olortegui and inks by Wade von Grawbadger. 


Aquaman #1 hits shelves on February 22, 2022.
