Everybody's Talking About Aquaman

Everybody's Talking About Aquaman

By DCE Editorial Wednesday, November 30th, 2011
Aquaman may be fighting against the tide of public opinion within the pages of his eponymous series, but his profile in the real-world media is undergoing a sea change thanks to his depiction in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. In an interview with THE HUFFINGTON POST, writer Geoff Johns dove right in to a candid conversation about the less flattering perceptions of the character ­ and how he embraced the challenge of making Aquaman relevant. "I went back and read a lot of the old Aquaman and there's a lot of great stuff, but there was this attempt to push him as hard as he could to be cool or edgy and I thought that addressing that stuff would appeal to anybody, not just comics readers. It was different, no one had done that yet, and I thought it was more real and honest. And it's fun, working with an underdog."
