The Trench, Vol. 1
I love Aquaman now. Truthfully, I never really thought about him much before I met Geoff Johns but he described it so well that I HAD to check it out. And I’m glad that I did. I bought “The Trench, Vol. 1″ from my local comic book store “Hall of Heroes” and it chronicled the first 6 issues of the relaunched Aquaman. I loved how meta it was. Aquaman really had to live in a world where everyone made fun of him for what they THOUGHT were his super dumb powers. Turns out, people don’t know what they’re talking about! Aquaman can do a lot of stuff and his background story is interesting as heck!
I felt particularly attached to Aquaman because I recognize the struggle of being understood but from the POV of a librarian. Everyone has these preconceived notions of what you do all the while you’re helping people every day. It gets annoying after a while and you learn to just ignore it and keep on keepin on. Which is what Aquaman does! I feel you Aquaman! I feel your feels!
Anyway, I wrote a short review about “The Trench, Vol. 1″ for my library’s blog. Check it out, if you’re so interested!
