The last time the DC Universe was rebooted, all the way back in 2011, Aquaman kicked things off by insisting that he does not talk to fish. Now, with Rebirth upon us and a new clean slate offered up so that we can once again redefine the King of the Seven Seas, it raises the question of just what Aquaman's going to tell us he doesn't do this time. When Aquamman: Rebirth #1 hits shelves next week from Dan Abnett and Oscar Jimenez, is he going to tell us that he doesn't wear an orange shirt, or that he didn't have a pirate hook for a hand for a little bit back in the '90s? Or is he, perhaps, going to tell us that he prefers swimming pools to the ocean?

Okay, okay, I kid. It actually turns out that Aquaman's going to be kicking off his new era by punching out a bunch of Aquaterrorists who ride around on giant sea-serpents with alligator mouths, so already, things are looking up. Check out a preview below!

 

 

And here's the official solicitation from DC:

Atlantis has been on the outside for too long: feared, mysterious and misunderstood. But that means getting the world used to Atlantis… and vice versa.
