Hey, didja hear? Mera’s getting her own miniseries.
DC announced it Thursday. Mera: Queen of Atlantis will debut in February and run for six issues. Writer? Aquaman regular Dan Abnett. Artist? Lan Medina.
It’s the first time Mera’s headlined her own series — and it makes sense given her prominence in next year’s Aquaman flick. She’s also long been a fan fave, obviously, and has been an integral part of Abnett’s run.
Here’s the official solicitation info, courtesy of Newsarama:
MERA: QUEEN OF ATLANTIS #1
Written by DAN ABNETT
Art by LAN MEDINA
Cover by NICOLA SCOTT
Variant cover by STANLEY “ARTGERM” LAU
From the pages of AQUAMAN comes a brand-new adventure starring Mera, in her own title for the first time ever!
As the brutal Atlantean Civil War rages, Mera must keep the peace between the surface world and Atlantis as its newly anointed queen in exile. But when Aquaman’s brother Orm, a.k.a. Ocean Master, learns of his homeland’s fate, he’ll stop at nothing to return to Atlantis as its king and savior!
On sale FEBRUARY 28 • 32 pg, FC, 1 of 6, $3.99 US • RATED T
Anyway, if it’s the perfect time for Mera to get her first series, then it’s the perfect time for us to give her her first 13 COVERS salute.
