When it comes to DC Comics, this week has been a major one in terms of breaking comic book news. First came the news of its multi-year deal with Writer Brian Michael Bendis. Fast forward a few days later and the publisher revealed it has major plans for Mera the queen of Atlantis. In February she will star in her own six-issue comic book series.
Titled Mera: Queen of Atlantis, Dan Abnett (Aquaman) will serve as writer and Lan Medina (Aquaman and the Others) will provide the artwork for the books. While Artist Nicola Scott (Wonder Woman) will be working on covers for the limited series and provided the first look at the cover for issue #1. Abnett’s story will revolve around the continuing Atlantean civil war. During its continuation, Mera finds herself having to keep the peace between the surface world and Atlantis.
This task will not prove easy as Oceanmaster makes his return for what he believes is rightfully his. The throne of Atlantis and title of the city’s savior. Issue one of her first solo series hits comic store shelves on February 28th, 2018.
