After years of suffering from lack of respect, who would have thought Aquaman would be such a hot property? Or a warm property, anyway … sure, his TV pilot was a wash (though it did make it to iTunes this week) and his movie is only a rumor right now, but at least he still has his own series, written by Kurt Busiek, no less.
Aquaman wasn’t the only one making news this week, as Sub Diego … er, San Diego also made a headline or two. Kevin has a nice round-up of many of the bigger news stories, and I spent the week chatting with a few folks who were there, namely Chris Arrant, Larry Young and D.J. Coffman.
