“The Big Book of Aquaman”: Between myth and history.

Aquaman has always been adventure, action, involvement, since his first appearance in 1941, his green and golden costume perfect for a protagonist who must emerge from the seabed and manage the Kingdom of Atlantis as its Sovereign, alongside whom they move several protagonists, including an emancipated wife: Mera. Since Mort Weisinger and Paul Norris gave birth to Arthur Curry, in his 80 years he has undergone many changes but in the name of tradition.

The work in question, “The Big Book of Aquaman – eighty years of adventures above and under the sea”, published by Panini Comics, is an exciting journey through the history of the DC superhero, in the evolution of a hero who knew how span several decades.

A work enriched by numerous analyses, historical references and portraits of the authors who took the hero into their own hands; Some of the important stories have been presented among the pages which allow those who approach the King of Atlantis for the first time to have a vision of the character: from his birth and his debut on the “More Fun Comics” magazine to the battles epics, the most iconic villains such as Black Manta and his brother Ocean Master, the birth of his son, his relationship with the Justice League, his marriage to Mera, Aqualand…

A well-documented book, even if perhaps important points of the evolution of the figure of Arthur are missing, due to epic sagas such as “Flahpoint”, “The Blackest Night” which have given rise to continuous sequels, reboots, remakes creating a bit of confusion in the continuity of the events of Atlantis with the Surface World.

Interesting work that allows the reader to take a journey through time, reliving the Gold Age and the Silver Age, noticing how the stories change in the various decades in terms of script and narration, with a trait that has always become more realistic even if in some junctures, the fantastic aspects present in the 50s and 70s have left room for the political questions of the new Millennium.
