Let’s talk comics, shall we?

Aquaman just hit theaters the 21st, and within 8 days, I have seen it three times in theaters. To say it exceeded my expectations is an understatement. And coming from a girl that used to mock Aquaman – I’m legitimately ready to grab some trade paperbacks and read some Atlantean adventures.
