After the amazing multi-year run extending from the tail end of the new 52 onward through DC Rebirth, Dan Abnett has had Arthur Curry on a tale that has risen and fallen like the tide. From stopping evil water dimension hopping monsters to losing his thrown to an evil warlord and then his longtime love taking his place. Abnett spent the past few years telling stories that will go down as some of the Aquaman’s greatest. But now a new tide has come in.
Enter Kelly Sue Deconnick. Famous for her phenomenal run on Captain Marvel as well as her indie comic work like Bitch Planet and Pretty Deadly, has ridden this fresh wave of creators that have entered DC Comics in the past few months such as Grant Morrison on Green Lantern as well as G. Willow Wilson on Wonder Woman. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, she explained that she, “thinks in terms of sound, so I think of the tone of my books in terms of music,” DeConnick said. “So Pretty Deadly is Ennio Morricone, and Captain Marvel was Tom Petty. Aquaman is Zeppelin. It’s big, it’s mythic, it’s air-brushed on the side of a van, it’s heavy bass and high screeching vocals and lots of mythic touchstones.”
Now with a big movie on the way as well as an entire Justice League Event dedicated to him, what could Deconnick and artist Robson Rocha have planned for Arthur Curry? In a preview released today, we get a look at the cover as well as the fully colored versions of the preview released by Entertainment Earlier last month. Take a look below and tell us what you think of this new chapter for Aquaman as well as this new threat hinted at in a recent DC Nation on Facebook and Twitter @shootthebreezeC
