[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”12005″ img_size=”400×600″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]New creative team DeConnick and Rocha bring us Aquaman #43 right before the premiere of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, which is expected to do very well. There’s even a page in the issue with Aquaman swimming alongside Mera who both are identical to Momoa and Amber Heard. The rest of the issue, though; has a more “traditional” looking Arthur Curry, with long blonde hair, and not at all similar to his live-action counterpart.
Aquaman #43 reads like an old fisherman’s tale, with an Arthur Curry living in a cabin near the sea, occupied by other displaced people. Known as Andy or Arausio, Curry has no idea who he actually is or why he has ended up with these people. A strange woman Callie cares for him and speaks to him about destiny and the meaning of life, to which he’s pretty skeptical about.
Perhaps it’s because I’m a fan of Game of Thrones, but Callie reminds me Melisandre, as she’s beautiful, coated in red, and trying to steer Arthur in a certain direction. While Arthur can tell that there is something that is being held from him, he still listens to Callie, and doesn’t try to leave the cabin near the water.
The issue is narrated by the tale being told by the elderly man in the cabin and we come to find out some very important information about Callie, which I won’t give away. The comic is one big sea tale, feeling like we are part of something bigger, mythological. I’m sure that especially once Aquaman hits theaters for the public, people will be especially excited to get more Arthur Curry. You can get ahead by picking up this issue of Aquaman #43![/vc_column_text][vc_images_carousel images=”12006,12007,12008,12009,12010″ img_size=”400×600″ speed=”3000″ autoplay=”yes” wrap=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
