Fuck off man. Abnett’s run has been excellent. This is really disappointing to find out.
Not only that, Abnett’s run has been epic and building towards a status quo which is ripe for further storytelling, particularly with Mera.
News that DeConnick wants to rip that up is not something that appeals to me, especially reading this stupid comment -
““The approach for Aquaman has always been that he is essentially mixed race, right? He’s half-Atlantean and half-human, so he doesn’t belong in either place, and the idea is [that] each place rejects him for that. But my feeling is that in contemporary society we cannot play the beautiful, literally bulletproof white boy off as facing bias because of his mixed parentage. I think that is disingenuous at best and, I don’t know, cruel at worst”
I’m sure they’ll be a backlash about this ridiculous comment if people find a way to be offended about it.
White men never have to deal with bias eh? And if they do, because they are white and men I’m sure the rest of their lives are so easy that the bias is a breeze. So, man up pretty white boy.
Really shit news but I’ll wait until I hear out more before declaring that it’s time to drop off the book, she’s not selling it to me at the moment anyway, doesn’t sound like she really knows what it is she is going to write about.
