So it is with much appreciation that we bid Ivan and Joe despedida on behalf of Aquaman readers everywhere, knowing that we’ll be right with them as they prepare to blow people away with their work on Justice League in the "Throne of Atlantis" crossover with Aquaman in just a couple months. Here's what Ivan and Joe had to say about going from Sea King solo to League ensemble art duties:
Ivan: Thanks for all the kind words and support guys, the Shrine has been a real part of this Aquaman run...and hey, we are not leaving Aquaman [the character] we're working with him in Justice League!
Joe: Having the chance of working on Aquaman (one of my all-time favorite characters) was a dream come true for me and having on my side such talented friends, made all the difference! I think we all grew up as artists and Geoff as a writer on this run and we had a blast! But hey -- we also owe you guys and the fans from the Shrine a great deal! You guys were always supporting and giving us the strength and encouragement to do our best work ever with such an amazing character!
And we're not giving up on Aquaman, Mera, Atlantis, The Others, and everything else at all! We'll be taking very good care of (at least) Arthur and Mera on Justice League so stay tuned for THRONE OF ATLANTIS!!! This story has been planned for a long time and it rocks! :) So as you can see, the guys may be moving but they’re not going too far.
You can preview the all-out action in Aquaman #13 over at CBR and as always we'll have a full recap/review of the issue on the Shrine’s Comics Weekend post!
