In 2007, the Aquaman: Sword Of Atlantis series came to a close with #57. It had been starring a different Aquaman in the role for a few little while, and while Arthur Curry and Mera continued to appear in other comics such as 52, Blackest Night and Brightest Day, it took 2011's New 52 reboot of the DC Universe to bring him back to an ongoing series, with Geoff Johns, Joe Prado and Ivan Reis setting up much that would later be adapted into the Aquaman movie. Bleeding Cool's recommendations that he be played by Samuel L Jackson fell on water-clogged ears, sadly.
Recently, Kelly Sue DeConnick's run came to an end on Aquaman, followed by an Endless Winter crossover and for January and February, Future State stories. But unlike the other Future State books, that creative team does not have an Aquaman title scheduled for March. And Bleeding Cool understands that there are no immediate plans to rectify that, aside from having the Aquaman characters appear in other books, including Brian Bendis and David Marquez' Justice League series.
For Aquaman fans of the comics or the films, that might have to just do you for now.
