Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Has breathed new life into [Aquaman]…. The series is off to an excellent start with plenty of mystery and action ahead. Anyone that ever hesitated to read a story about ‘the guy who talks to fish,’ should have no second thoughts about picking up Aquaman Volume 1: The Trench.”—Philadelphia Examiner

"Every page drips with humor and all of it is aimed at Aquaman and his considerable character heritage, be it the orange shirt, the power to talk to fish or the second-string super-hero status."—Los Angeles Times Hero Complex

"Fresh."—Entertainment Weekly

 "Actually, this might be [Geoff Johns's] most impressive feat to date. Genius."—USA Today

    Worth reading (if you're a comic book fan)

    I'm enjoying this new Aquaman, reviving him from relative obscurity. It's not as good as the New 52 Batman, but better than the New 52 Action Comics.

    Great story and art!

    This story brought me back to reading comics after several years. There was enough mystery to keep me entertained even as they introduced new characters into the Aquaman mythos. I thought the art was pretty good too.

    Don't Look Back

    Don't Look Back

    Prologue

    My mother, Freesia, looks worriedly at the door, which is just a few sticks tied together, about a foot across and three feet tall. Our house is one room, made of packed mud with a dirt floor.
    Gunshots and shouting sound outside. I begin to cry in fear, and my mother hurriedly hushes me. I wail uncontrollably.
    "Shh, shh..." my mother begs. "No crying..."
    I try to stifle my sobs. Suddenly, the door is kicked in. I burst into a new fit of bawling. At five years old, I canbarely control my fear, and so I act to show my emotions.
    "Faizah!" My mother screams. People swarm the house. A loud gunshot rings out. Through the crowd, I see my mother fall to the ground. A red stain spreads across her ragged shirt. I stare at the figure.
    "Mama sleeping?" I ask a boy among the soldiers.
    "Yes." He says softly. He holds out a hand, which I take. The young boy pulls me out of the hut, and towards a large helicopter. We board it silently. I look for my friend Aziza, but all I see are the solemn-faced strangers.
    "I'm Faizah." I tell them matter-of-factly.
    A soldier smiles at me. He is about Mama's age, with dark hair, light skin, and kind blue eyes.
    "My Mama sleeping. And my best friend Aziza lives here, too!" I continue cheerfully.
    The boy who had broughten me here whispers something to the man, who nods sadly.
    "Your name's Faizah? That's very cool. I''m Trent." The boy sits on the hard seat next to me.
    "I'm five." I tell him.
    "I'm eight." He answers.
    "Cool!" I kick my feet happily. A new friend! I'll tell Mama and Aziza all about Trent!
    The doors of the helicopter close. I hear a whirring sound as we lift into the air.
    "What about Mama and Aziza?" I ask.
    "They're safe, now." Trent says.
    "Okay. I see them soon?" I ask.
    Treent looks at me, before answering. "Yes, Faizah. One day, you will see them again."
