I was curious about this title because my brother (I’m a Marvel girl) told me that the story was interesting and Aquaman is awesome in this. You’re probably familiar with the Family Guy skit ridiculing Aquaman and his supposed inability to be an effective superhero outside of water so I was curious to read the comic and see for myself what sort of superhero Aquaman is. This is not my first foray into the New 52 series and while many people have been complaining about the retcon, for newbies like me who have no idea where to begin, it’s a useful jump point for me to start.
