So, DC decides to revive a poor-selling comic by putting a well-known artist on it. I'm talking about Aquaman, which was selling quite poorly. Then, DC uses One Year Later combined with Conan writer Kurk Busiek, to help boost the comic's sales. It does so, but only temporarily. As sales sink and delays plague Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis (the new version of the same title), suddenly Busiek has a new project and has to get off of this sinking ship. Coincidence? I think not. Tad Williams, writer of The Next, will be the new man to pen the fishy tales of Aquaman as it continues to sink into the depths of back issue bins everywhere.
