New AQUAMAN Artist Previews Series New Direction, First Pages

In December, Aquaman gets a new direction and new creative team, as Kelley Sue DeConnick and Robson Rocha kick off their run on issue #43. And according to Rocha, the partnership with DeConnick is not only the best collaboration he’s had, but he thinks the resulting artwork on Aquaman is also his best.

This week, readers of titles from DC will get a five-page preview of the Rocha’s first issue. The new direction for Aquaman will spin out of the conclusion of the “Drowned Earth” event. And according to the preview, Aquaman will be far from home and unaware of his powers or history when the new direction begins.


Full story at link above.
I know who Kelley Sue DeConnick is although I don't think I have ever read anything she has written. I've read other titles that Robson Rocha has drawn. He really is a pretty good artist. :smt023

DeConnick is a writer that I'd like to like, and I think she gets near-universal praise on Twitter and in the comics media, but I have yet to read a single thing from her that didn't bore me to tears.

Now, to be fair to her, I have not tried Pretty Deadly or Bitch Planet, her Image stuff which is allegedly her best work, but mainly that's because her Osborn, Avengers Assembled, assorted stories in 1-shots/anthologies/etc., and most especially her snoozefest Captain Marvel stuff gave me absolutely zero reason to believe I'd like them either.

I've been trade waiting the series up until now and its been ok. Don't think I'll continue getting the series because the planned new direction doesn't interest me. Art looks ok though; sort of early Marc Silvestri (sp?).

Sadly, that tweet is by far the most interesting and entertaining thing she's ever written. :wink:

Bitch Planet is her most consistent work, imo. (The anthology is hit or miss)

Pretty Deadly is, on the other hand, is her weakest. Not as bad as some titles can get at Image. It's just...off.

As far as her Marvel stuff, her work there varies on various levels.

As far as her upcoming gig on Aquaman is concerned, I'm expecting to enjoy it. The only thing that could change that is either she writes at Bitch Planet level or higher or.....goes into Pretty Deadly territory.
