NEW DC Black Label Aquaman Series by Writer Ram V. Announced

Thanks to an exclusive reveal by CBR we now have an official reveal of a new DC Black Label Aquaman 3 issue mini-series written by fan favourite scribe Ram V. with art by Christian Ward that has been labeld as a “psychological horror” series.

Releasing on June 7 this year, Ram V. (Venom, The Swamp Thing, Future State: Catwoman) is teaming up with Christian Ward (Suicide Squad, Thor, Invisible Kingdom) are teaming up for the latest DC Black Label comic Aquaman: Andromeda. The comic branded as a psychological horror will centre around the Aquatic Ace being put to the test in the depths of the Pacific Ocean.

The plot synopsis for Aquaman: Andromeda reads:

"Deep in the Pacific Ocean, at the farthest possible distance from any land, sits Point Nemo: the spaceship graveyard. Since the dawn of the space race, the nations of the world have sent their crafts there on splashdown, to sink beneath the silent seas. But there is something… else at Point Nemo. A structure never made by human hands. And that structure seems to be… waking up."

"A covert team of scientists, survivalists, and soldiers make up the crew of the experimental submarine Andromeda, a prototype deep sea exploration vessel powered by a mysterious black-hole drive, and they have been chosen to investigate the sunken mystery… but they aren't the only ones pursuing it. Anything of value beneath the ocean is of value to the master pirate Black Manta… and anything that attracts Black Manta attracts Arthur Curry, his lifelong foe, the Aquaman! But heaven help them all when the doors of the mystery at Point Nemo swing wide to admit them…"

Author Ram V. had this to say in an upcoming interview with CBR:

"I went back and looked at everything to make sure that we were presenting a concept and an idea that genuinely felt fresh and new. Obviously, there have been a lot of great stories. Generally, the Aquaman stuff has tended to veer towards sort of this magic and fantasy route. I wanted to see if we could drop it into a different genre and make it work. I think of it as a sci-fi horror human character drama set inside a situation that has both literal and metaphoric pressure."
