Tyroc has explained it to me and I just don't understand what they were thinking?

Indeed. Even worse is how Busiek managed to absolutely mangle any chance he had of being interesting by totally crashing and burning on Aquaman. I can't remember who took over from Busiek, but he actually managed to create an interesting story, but was paired with the worst art I've ever seen in my life. Dreadful.

Like I've been saying, all this Blackest Night zombie bizzo better be leading back to the triumphant return of the real Aquaman. Nothing else will do.

That is surprising i would have laid bets that Livewire would have been the classic chunky McGuinnes Female body,very nice fig!

Speaking of Aquaman Andy,is the completist in you going to grab the Blackest Night Zombie Aq?As much as i want one of every J'onnn fig ever made i can't bring myself to ever entertain the idea that Zombie J'onn will stand on my shelf.

I'm wondering why all the 'zombies' have that same facial 'look'? They're not my thing but I really want the Atrocitus and Larfleeze figs!

Green Lantern is really rocking now. Johns and Green Lantern are the flagship of DC (though it's a fast failing fleet).

Part of me wants to get on board with Blackest Night, but I'm trying to avoid picking up single issues, and I've never had a thing for any of the Green Lanterns.

I'm a GL fan and I was a bit wary of the whole 'multi-coloured' concept of corps, but it's simply amazing what Johns has done with them. Sinestro's yellow troops are just evil bastards, Atrocitus is simply mad as hell and those that give in to the rage and become a red lantern lose their ability for coherent thought. The one I was a bit wary of was the orange lantern. But Larfleeze (the only real orange lantern) is a superb concept. I almost never buy TPBs or HCs of stuff I have single issues of, but this is a must for me.

Not even Arisia?  ;)

Seriously, GL is where its happening in the DCU at the moment. Blackest Night is going to be amazing.

FB, check my blog for my crisis over the Zombie Aquaman....  :o

Don't do it mate,the thought of having a little plastic reminder of what happened to a character that means so much to me on my shelf is just too much to bear.Just say no!

I think it might depend on whether or not he comes back. If he ends up back in his rightful place then I can come at the figure as a chapter of his history. If he gets further desecrated, then no dice.

We'll see.
