Well, Arthur’s been saying he doesn’t want to be king…
And we thought our politics could be brutal!
If you’ve been following the dramatic events taking place in the “Crown of Atlantis” storyline in Aquaman, and have read this week’s pivotal AQUAMAN #24 by Dan Abnett, Scot Eaton and Philippe Briones, you know exactly what I’m talking about. But for the rest of you, let me bring you up to speed.
He’s a member of the Justice League, has just celebrated his 75th Anniversary and will soon get his own feature film, and yet you still don’t hear too many people talking about Aquaman. That’s a shame because as his many fans know, Aquaman is one of the most interesting, creatively rich characters in the DC Universe. He’s both a super hero and a king—two roles that are often dynamically at odds with each other. He has a fiery paramour who comes from a shunned segment of Atlantis. And he can wield sharks as weapons!
There’s one more weekend remaining until Halloween, which means there’s not a lot of time to lock down a Halloween costume. You can always stop by your nearest pop-up costume shop and likely find yourself fighting tooth and nail over S and XXL-sized costumes that have literally been passed over by everyone else in town…or you can listen to your friends at DC Collectibles, embrace the spirit of DIY, and put together the perfect DC Bombshells Mera costume.
