Monday's Headlines | Kelly Sue DeConnick confirms her Aquaman exit
DeConnick took over Aquaman in 2018 with #43, writing over 20 issues of the series, counting a recent fill-in from writer Jordan Clark on Aquaman #62 and the upcoming Aquaman #63. The cover shown here is for Aquaman #64, DeConnick's return issue.
"You're very kind, but condolences are unnecessary," DeConnick states on Twitter in response to a fan who asserted Aquaman had been cancelled. "I am leaving the book a few issues past when I'd planned to leave. I stayed on longer than I'd intended because the pandemic school closures caused me to fall behind and I needed extra time to wrap up storylines."
