According to commenters on our Facebook page, Eddy Barrows has posted to his personal Facebook page that he is not taking over the art chores on Aquaman but merely did this cover. We were unable to confirm this, due to privacy settings on Barrows’s Facebook account.
Writer/artist Rob Liefeld, though, apparently has had some kind words for Barrows in the recent past. He tweeted, “Hope they stick with my suggestion from 3 months ago and it’s Eddy Barrows on more than just the Aquaman covers.”
After last night’s announcement that Ivan Reis and Joe Prado would be leaving Aquaman to take over the art chores on Justice League from a departing Jim Lee, the first question on the lips of a lot of fans was what would happen to Aquaman, one of the biggest surprise hits of the New 52 which may be losing its entire creative team if Geoff Johns leaves, as has been widely rumored following the announcement of his upcoming Justice League of America series.
But a new interview with Johns features art from an upcoming issue of Aquaman that isn’t by Reis and Prado, and discusses how it sets up the next storyline.
