So with the New 52 Relaunch I had my selected titles ready to be pulled and read... among so many not one of them was Aquaman. Not because I thought he was lame or the content would be stupid or anything like that, I just had too much to read with DC AND Marvel. Then the reviews started rolling in claiming a New Era for Aquaman. So after Liefeld came onto DC and I had dropped 3 books, Grifter, Hawkman, and Deathstroke, I started to read Aquaman by the Magnificent Grant Morrison. As I read each issue I made somewhat of a realization... I had read Aquaman before and these issues as much as they wanted to be called "re-imagining" of Aquaman really weren't... besides pointing out that he is a lame hero in the first issue nothing really had changed. It was very much Sea Based in location, the same villains but with some added mythology. But everybody loved THIS version... Why? For one USUALLY anything with Grant Morrison turns Golden, so smart move DC. But also I think the relaunch got people to read Aquaman who before would have laughed at the Idea. But when many people actually read this Hero's stories they were somewhat intrigued, I know I was. Aquaman gets a bad rap. The Aquaman stories we see today bare more than a passing resemblance to older Aquaman books. I think thanks to the relaunch Aquaman got the chance he deserved. TO AQUAMAN!
