Aquaman in 52

Yes, Aquaman does appear in the first issue of 52. The appearance, however, is basically a grade 5 cameo. In one scene he appears with Mera. As soon as I have a chance to fire up my scanner I'll post the tiny appearance here. Whatever happened to Orin happened after the first week of the year as described in 52.

In other news, I've been told by a semi-reliable source that Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis #42 was always going to ship on May 17th, but internal confusion set the Diamond shipping date earlier. As evidence, I was pointed to the shipping date for issue #43, which is also late in the month (although I notice there are two different shipping dates listed in Previews for issue #43). According to this source, DC had plans all along to change the shipping week of Aquaman. While this doesn't quite jibe with other sources, it seems plausible enough to pass along.
