    Well Manapul was working on Earth One Aquaman on an initiative of Didio, who used to say that Manapul was born to draw Aquaman. With Dan gone the project was shelved.
    However if his contract expired or not, many others will follow, this is what DC is now.

    Eh, it was shelved long before Didio left considering it was first announced in 2015.

    I mean, for the most part the writing has been on the wall with the Earth One books so I'm not really surprised.

    It might've partially been on Manapul for not having the time or the wherewithal to work on the book.

    I think that Earth One comic was dead for a while.

    Aquaman is not priority for them and besides that Manapul being let go, says alot about the state of this company.

    As she should be. She already has more of both her parents than DC lets Jon Kent have, so I'm glad for that at least.

    It is a great thing. Jon being his father's son but his mother not contributing enough elements to his character is my biggest criticism of Jon Kent and DC's development of him. That she's not just MiniMera (which visually she is) is excellent.

    Well, I mean. Mera's a lot more memorable than Lois is, so it isn't a wonder !
