Praise For The Trench

“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
