I’m not sure if Peter David will faint at the news of this. But finally, after three decades of requests, DC Comics is to collect The Atlantic Chronicles, his series with artist Esteban Maroto that set a history for Atlantis in the DC Universe, that would birth Aquaman. An in-depth historical fantasy, calling it Game Of Underwater Thrones wouldn’t be a stretch.
So in November we are getting Aquaman: The Atlantis Chronicles Deluxe Edition for $34.99
From the Eisner Award-winning author, Peter David comes the epic history of not only one of DC’s most iconic characters, but also of all the mythical Atlantis. The Atlantean society had been shrouded in mystery with the surface dwellers of the DC Universe barely even aware of its existence until Aquaman came along. Unbeknownst to the humans above, Atlantis had been beneath the surface of the ocean for thousands of years, with history spanning massive generations. Discover that secret history, discover why Atlantis sank in the Great Deluge, and discover why Atlanteans hate blond hair.
