If you’re reading the current AQUAMAN series by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis, then you already know Aquaman is pretty badass. But let’s be honest, the character is a running joke to the outside world. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to stop my friends from making an Aquaman joke to say, “No, seriously, he’s really cool now. I swear.”
But I can only preach Aquaman’s “cool status” so far. So maybe that’s why Robot Chicken’s upcoming DC Comics Special exists – it’s going to show the world at large that Aquaman isn’t to be trifled with, both in the sea and on land.
To celebrate the union between DC Entertainment, Adult Swim and Robot Chicken, AQUAMAN #12 will be getting a very special variant cover putting on display Aquaman’s kingly prowess. The image comes courtesy of TV Guide.
According to Geoff Johns himself, he thinks this cover is one of the best they’ve ever done for the series.
This is the last thing I ever thought we'd put on an Aquaman cover because it's such a bizarre collision of worlds but I think it's one of the best covers we've ever done...I just love the look on Superman's face!
Issue #12 of Aquaman releases August 29, while the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special airs at midnight on September 9.
And if you haven’t yet seen the trailer for the special, give it a watch now.
